One for the Good Guys
"Tom Hiltachk, a California Republican political legal hack, apparently can't even throw a spit ball with a straight arm. He wanted to put a measure on the California ballot that would have taken twenty or more Electoral College votes away from the Democrats by changing the way we allocate those electors from winner take all to proportional by Congressional district.
So much for the sucker punch from the right hook of the Republican Party. After tens of thousands of people joined together in the netroots and grassroots to just say no, the initiative seems to have fallen apart. Courage Campaign worked with civilian leaders such as Brad Whitford and joined with the leading bloggers in California and across the country to make sure that if this got on the ballot, it would fail and that the conspirators would know that the more they cheated, the more they helped us to organize."
This is just a small snippet from The Huffington Post, you can go there to read the whole article.
The Republican party and it's extremist followers will stoop at nothing to steal the next election.
They have proven that in the 2000 and 2004 races.
If our Constitution is going to survive, we can't afford to lose the next election.
With the help of this new world of bloggers, people are waking up and paying attention.
We can all help to insure that the next election is fair, by keeping our eyes on the
prize, the 2008 Presidential election.
The wingnuts are not going to give up so easily next time,we have to remain observant
and stop them every time they come up with a new plan.
Where is Paul Revere when we need him??
