Ohio Conspiracy Theories

Our heroine, unwilling to give up her hope for Kerry's election despite his apparent concession, passes on this interesting tidbit. Look here for more info about the need for paper trails.

Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004: "One thing that is very strange is how much the exit polls differed from the final results, especially in Ohio. Remember that Ohio uses Diebold voting machines in many areas. These machines have no paper trail. Early in the campaign, Diebold CEO Walden O'Dell, a GOP fundraiser, promised to deliver Ohio to Bush. He later regretted having said that."

So what do we do now? In a couple of days, when we no longer want to just lash out at the sheer rottenness of it all... what do we do now?

That's not a rhetorical question....though I don't have even the beginnings of an answer.

I've been asking myself the same question and I think my friend Bridget has the right idea--to be vocal about the causes we believe in and not allow our political minority status to intimidate us from fighting for our priorities.

From True Majority: "The next phase may well involve helping people build local initiatives and organizations around leaders who have the strength and commitment to champion compassion, justice, sustainability and international cooperation. Conservatives rebuilt their activist groups through devotion to a set of values they believed in and could communicate with passion to voters. It’s time for us to do that too."

And here in Colorado I have a few things to celebrate:
-defeat of amendment 34
-Democrats taking a majority in the state house and senate for the first time since 1976
-passage of an amendment requiring an increase in the use of renewable energy sources

So I'm trying to look on the bright side and figure out what I can do during the next 4 years to make my voice heard.
