And, thank you for your recognition of Dr. Garth Eldritch.
I was so impressed with his letter supporting Congressman Conyers that I forwarded it as a 'Christmas gift' to numerous members of the US Senate and House of Representatives, as well as to many friends, professional colleagues, and others --- urging all of them to contact those in 109th US Congress who represent them.
Message being, stand with Congressman Conyers on 6 Jan 2005 and defend our American franchise of democracy from destruction.

thanks for the heads up Brad....keep us the good work!!!
Brad thanks for the heads up.
Has anyone researched past objections, if any, and how that may have developed?
Our first objective is to find a senator who has the right stuff and will therefore stand up with Conyers.

I apologize for not having read Eldritch's full letter prior to my comment on the other thread --- I thought Brad's instruction to be sure to read it was for Republicans . Although I stand by my "they" "them" points, what was more important was the letter to stand by Conyers. I think he deserves Brad's award.
I eagerly await Jan 6.
I volunteered (through ContestTheVote.org) to deliver petition names to senator Nelson today but was told by a staffer that they would then just mail them to DC...pointless if he has to get them by the 6th. So I sent it by overnight mail. I'm not very hopeful, though.
I'm afraid all we do is futile....
Thank you, Brad, for being a true patriot.

"I'm afraid all we do is futile...."
Nothing we do is futile. Not everything will work immediately, but nothing is futile if you one believes they are doing the right thing.
Case in point: I was told (by many Lefty Liberal Bloggers for that matter!) that I shouldn't bother pointing out what seemed, on November 3rd, to be "questionable election results".
Back then, I was one of a handfull of folks will to speak up and ask questions about things outloud.
Today, I'm joined by thousands, if not millions in asking these questions.
Will the results of the Election be changed? Don't know. Has the fallaciousness of a "Bush Mandate" been spoken to? Certainly! Are chances for Election Reform in the future much better than they were on November 3rd? Without a doubt!
Nothing is futile. Speaking up about the *truth*, no matter how many folks are ready to hear it, is *never* futile!
"Thank you, Brad, for being a true patriot."
Thank *you* for same! And for all the others who've left supportive comments on this thread, and the many others.
The work continues! Discouragement gets us nowhere. Be done with it!

Wash. Post in Politics section, large Protest article, small paragraph "David Lytel, founder ReDefeat the President" talks about rally to raise questions about vote irregularities and 2004 election. Still waiting to hear from Miami Herald and Palm Beach Post. Next will go to OMBUDSMAN!
Brad, thank you for your thoughtful highlight of Dr. Eldritch's appeal. I was elated to your "Bando Bling" credit. THANK YOU!!
You're a national treasure. Thank you for all your effort and honesty. We all are doing our little bit.
But we need " connected," honest people. We thank you.
Keep following your objective. And pray for national enlightenment.
Not a slavish groupie and definitely not young and foolish,
