    said any such thing. Try simply reading what is written and not trying to spin it.

    We need every vote and no mistakes about people saying we don't.

        than once. The first stupid interjection was enough to get the commenter's feeble point as to their misguided concerns across, and from there it quickly became a hijack, with no point but to try to derail the diary. However, cfk seemed to stop about the time I was finally getting fed up enough to HR him/her.

        Ray put a huge orange box into his diary and bolded the words "voting is a sham"...

        That certainly does not mean that people should stay home.  It would never discourage someone from voting.  Ray did not include that quotation for any big reason so we should just overlook it...

        No one has the right to protest that at all.  Nonsense it is.

        Nothing to see here, sir...not a thing.

        Carry on.
