The arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice

I want to start this post with a link to a “must read” essay entitled, “Why We Must Not 'Get Over It,'” by Ernest Partridge of This is the most articulate composition I have read on the issue of 2004 election irregularities. In the essay Ernest states:

"Perhaps this election was scrupulously honest. Perhaps George Bush in fact received 59 million authentic votes, and 51% of the popular vote. But dare we accept this on faith, without reflection, without careful examination of the abundant evidence to the contrary? If the election was fair, then no harm will result from a scrupulous assessment of the contrary evidence. The facts will compel that the assessment will come up short. But can we afford the luxury of blind acceptance of the “official” tally? Must we ignore the accumulating evidence of foul play? I submit that we must not. The fate of our democracy is at stake."

Complaints about the 2004 election continue to come forward. On the pooh-pooh front, are these recurring types of dismissive articles that belittle the whole subject, paying little to no attention to the myriad of facts. “Just move on. Nothing to see here.” Here is a more fair look at the issue from the mainstream press, as it relates to blogging.

This article provides a comprehensive set of links for catching up on the full library of reading on the 2004 election irregularity issue.

Then there are the dead voters who potentially awaken every couple years to cast their ballots. And while American patriots are trying to get to the bottom of irregularities in Ohio, the Bush surrogates are dragging their feet in an attempt to “run out the clock.”

A group of concerned citizens with complaints of election fraud attempted to speak with FBI officials in White Plains New York, on Friday, but were turned away. They were not allowed to enter the offices, and not a single agent would meet with them in the lobby. Last time I checked, the FBI works for the citizenry. Somehow examining the possible theft of the presidency is not part of their charter. Here is a video of the event.

I end with words from the awesome essay noted at the beginning of this post:

"Make no mistake: The task ahead [of uncovering election fraud] will be arduous and for some even dangerous. Some of us will suffer for it. But if we truly love our country, and the principles of morality and justice that ennobled its founding, then we have no honorable choice but to take on this burden."
