NBC Debates

Here's part of a letter I received from People's Action Network just now. It ties in with what I was saying earlier about the debates.

(The other part was a request for donations and I didn't want you to think I was soliciting - I'm not.)

Dear Friends and Activists,

We have two advocacy missions for our participants this weekend. The
first is very easy and we are hoping everyone will do it, to submit
an action to send a message to NBC demanding that they all remaining
candidates back in the debates.

The second is to do anything you can to support the Kucinich call for
a recount in New Hampshire, so please read on and we'll tell you why
we think this is so important.

How Dare NBC Presume To Determine Which Candidates Are Worth Hearing
From?

We are sick and tired up to here of having the corporate media with
their fist on the scales during our election process. It is a self
fulfilling fix to feature certain candidates over others in their
coverage, and then crowd out those cheated of effective visibility in
the first place.

All candidates who meet the criteria must be allowed to participate
and be given fair and equal time. If candidates want to drop out,
that is their personal decision, as quite a number already have. But
it is outrageous, undemocratic and unpatriotic for NBC to play judge,
jury and executioner at this still early juncture. We have ready seen
multiple huge shifts in expected candidate rankings in just the first
caucus and first actual primary election. They can project a winner
in a particular race AFTER all the votes have been cast, not before.

If the voice who you believe best represents you on the issues is
being excluded from the debates, we need to tell NBC to back off, and
stop meddling with our democracy. So please submit the action page
above, and you can also call their programming department on the
phone at 212-664-4444.

Why A Recount In New Hampshire Is So Important

We've barely completely the first actual primary election in this
cycle and already there are huge suspicions on the blogs and on the
radio about the veracity of the results. Maybe it's because there is
so must hard evidence after the fact that the last two presidential
elections were stolen outright.

As reported by election protection watch groups, in particular there
appears to be a consistent pattern of discrepancies between the
optical scan counted and machine counted votes.

These doubts must be dispelled.

If we want people to turn out and actually vote in record numbers
like a healthy functioning democracy, people must have confidence to
believe that their votes will actually count. There must be a recount
in this case, and every other such case, and one of two things will
happen. Either 1) the count will be demonstrated accurate, in which
case that confidence is enhanced, or 2) we uncover problems and we
start fixing them now. Either way, this is a very worthy endeavor.

Only Dennis Kucinich has demonstrated the leadership on the
Democratic side to call for this needed recount, even though another
candidate, who we do not need to name, with tens of millions in the
bank, could have it done for much less money under NH law because
they were within 3 points of the declared winner.

Exactly! As per the posts below "How To Steal An Election" and "More Corruption and Election Hanky Panky"'

The corruption, dishonesty, and complete lack of morals and integrity in this administration is sickening.
It wasn't enough to have the Dem Party in Texas (blush!) reject the man because he refused to sign a loyalty oath to whomever the Dem Party chose.

Good post, Granny. Hope all our readers read it.

PS: There were several of the candidates who were skunked in NH in spite of high ratings in the polls. Odd, huh?
