I need to remind you that if you haven't already -- please get on the phone, the fax or the keyboards and make those five little calls or messages to the Rules Committee urging them to subpoena the voting industry insiders and testing labs to come forth and testify UNDER OATH ... to perhaps shed some light on why they have been lying to us for oh-so long.
Please see http://www.dailykos.com/... My weekend Diary for more background information if you need it and McPherson's recent reinstatement of Diebold.
IT'S ONLY 5 CALLS/ EMAILS
Senator Don Perata (Chair) D
District office (510) 286-1333
Senator Jim Battin (Vice-Chair) R
Senator Roy Ashburn R
Senator Debra Bowen D
EMAIL ONLY Debra@debrabowen.com - (Ms. Bowen is mounting this case and will be busy preparing, emails are welcomed)
Senator Gilbert Cedillo D
Be concise, be polite, be professional. Here's your message: ask for "Rules Committee support for subpoenas of election industry and certification insiders who won't otherwise inform the Elections Committee as to what's going on".
The key people: Diebold head programmers, federal testing labs (Ciber, Wyle) that repeatedly certified these flawed systems, voting system examiners who took taxpayer money, spent hours on so-called "security exams" on systems your 12-year old sister can hack, then repeatedly recommended for certification.
This is about volume of calls logged, emails sent. Not only should YOU make calls, but this needs to go out to your list.
Polite, professional, short clear message, FIRM is what works. Your passion and conviction will speak volumes.
Once subpoenas go out, that will have nationwide impact. Never before have the key witnesses had to answer questions under oath in public. That will unravel the garment, and we are so close. Demonstrate that the citizenry of America wants those guys compelled to testify, with subpoena power, under oath. Per Bev Harris..."Perjury will follow". It's our best shot that is achievable before the critical Nov. elections.
You can take a moment to help prevent California from falling into the Red Sea. Won't that be fun?!
This is so easy that there is literally not one good reason not to do it. Multi-taskers: you can make these calls while you work, garden, make coffee, polish your silver or feed the cat....
You will feel so good once you've phoned and heard the impact we are having on this most vital issue. You will feel (almost) like you live in a representative democracy... almost. Guaranteed.
Money back if you don't. Call my people.
If you're not fully indoctrinated on the electronic election story and want to learn more, I direct you to (OK it happens to be mine) an excellent website on all things electoral... Who's Counting? where you can peruse 16 Chapters and read what piques your interest most. It was one year in the making - designed to be a Primer for the uninitiated. For the advanced class-- see BlackBoxVoting and VoteTrustUSA for updated news.
Thanks to all of you who've called and emailed already. And to those who have not-- Go to your phone now. You can actually get through. It's not like calling the beltway. It's more like... calling Mayberry. Try it.
And thank you deeply, in 100 languages and 53 dialects, if you've already done so.
