Presidential race insights

You know that there is going to be a recount in NH, right?

Furthermore, John McCain might not be on the ballot in Ohio.

Ask The New Hampshire Secretary of State To Waive Their Recount
Expense Requirement

After two presidential elections that many believe were stolen
outright, the most important thing is that there never again be
another election count without full voter confidence in the results.
And yet the primary season is just starting and already there is a
controversy about a discrepancy between optical scan and hand counted
results in New Hampshire.

We are not concluding that there anything amiss. What we are saying
is that New Hampshire has a special obligation for diligence, because
it has the special privilege of having the right to hold the first
presidential primary election every four years.

Dennis Kucinich understands all this, has the leadership to call for
a recount, and will pay for it himself if he has to. But we are
asking the New Hampshire secretary of state to waive the recount
expense requirement in this situation, in the national interest of
the voter confidence of all. And the one click action form above will
send your message directly to their office.

That's something you can do for no money, no cost to you, just one
click and it's done. And we are hoping that we can appeal to the
civic altruism of the state of New Hampshire. But we also need to be
prepared to assume the full cost of a recount in any case, and that
is why we are asking you to make a special donation to Dennis
Kucinich if you can to help him with this expense.

Kucinich Donations:

The special edition Kucinich campaign pocket constitutions have
arrived from the printer, they are just gorgeous, and we will be
working all weekend to ship them out. You can have one too with your
donation of just $100 on the page above. And if you can contribute
$1000 Dennis will personally autograph your copy along with a
personal thank you letter suitable for framing.

Dennis has already paid $2000 to the New Hampshire secretary of state
as a good faith deposit just to get the recount count estimate. But
you should know that there is another candidate on the Democratic
side who could have demanded a recount for that as the total cost
under New Hampshire law, because they came within 3% of the declared
winner. Why does not that candidate take a couple thousand dollars
out of the tens of millions they have collected and pay for this?

Yes, why is it that Dennis Kucinich and Dennis Kucinich only is out
there demonstrating leadership on absolutely every issue. What would
we do without him? Why don't we just all vote for the candidate we
really like on the issues, and stop letting the corporate media pick
the front-running horses before even the first race.

New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State, David M. Scanlan, was quoted
yesterday as saying.

"Perhaps the best thing that could happen for us is to have a recount
to show the people that the votes that were cast on election day were
accurately reflected in the results."

We agree.

New Hampshire has a special duty to set the tone for the entire
upcoming election season, so that there will be no doubt in anyone's
mind that every vote was counted, recorded and reported. Nothing will
strengthen our democracy more than the certainty that the process is
working and faithful.

You can also call the New Hampshire Secretary of State to make your
appeal and here is their phone number: 603-271-3242. And remember
always, if enough of us speak out we can make it happen. No matter
what they say, what matters is what we say.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and distribute this alert to everyone you know.
