    It could *still* go either way depending upon whether a recount occurs, whether the provisional ballots are counted, and Military Absentee Ballots...

    I forget whether it was Ohio or Pennsylvania that had recently extended the deadline for Absentee Ballots... But, I haven't heard a word on 'those' yet or if there are even enough to make a difference...

    The level of Christian Political Activism, especially hard copy personal letter writing, needs to be taken up several notches this next 4 years...

    As Believers we need to speel out exactly where we stand on various issues and 'greatly encourage' our elected officials, whether we voted for them or not, to 'seriously consider' what we say...

    Because of the closeness of the Presidential Race, and the serious risk that kerry might still make it into the Oval Office (further desecrating it) I voted a straight ticket here in SC even though I felt 'blown off' by Joe Wilson on the 'Hate Crimes' Legislation and Jim Deminted has this penchant for free trade at all costs and a national sales tax...

    (Why should a US company build in the US and pay sales tax on all materials when they can build overseas and not have to pay sales tax at all?)

    So, the fight isn't over...

    We need to start now so that in four years *if* Jesus tarries... There will be no question as to if we have been heard.

    It's over. Unless a huge change happens in some state that was supposed to be settled. Even if Kerry wins Ohio, it won't change things.

    All the candidates that i voted for won
    (well, assuming Bush wins).

    The Cleveland County vote was:
    Bush - 65,666
    Kerry - 33,984

    I used my American right to vote
    "Nyet!" to about a dozen state questions.
    But they all passed anyway.
    This state has been selling gambling
    vices and other vices for education
    for the last 25 years and stll can't get enough
    money from the vice to pay for education.

    BTW, this was the first time i'd voted
    for Bush. No, i never voted for Al Gore either [​IMG] I don't want to see any American
    dynasty. I'm in favor of term limits for
    families. [​IMG]

    There's no question now. About 99% of Americans want bigger government, bloody wars, and the status quo on abortion. That's pretty clear.

    Sigh. No, it is over.

    Mathematically, it is impossible for Kerry to win Ohio, even with the provisional ballots and absentees. Many of them will be invalid either because of double-voting (a Democrat attempt at fraud) or they were spoiled because people didn't sign them (this happened a lot here in Florida). As well, they would have to overwhelmingly be for Kerry, and that is just not going to happen.

    I can understand how Kerry doesn't want to concede. No doubt his lawyers are pushing for him not to say anything, but hopefully there is at least one advisor in Kerry's camp who will say, "John, dude, it's over."

    Hopefully, John Kerry will be gracious enough to concede today and spare us another circus.
