We all know what is going on in Florida, and that the election hinges on the outcome. I am writing you today to prepare us all for what we will have to do if what I think is going to happen actually does. The recount, which will be finished by 5 p.m. Thursday, will likely show Bush to be the winner once again, with only a few thousand overseas ballots

This is when something critical happens. Either Gore bows out gracefully or he doesn't, and I can almost guarantee he won't. These are people wedded to power who will only go down kicking and screaming. They'll use every legal maneuver in the book to steal the election. (In 1960, when Richard Nixon had every right and reason to challenge the election results he didn't for the sake of the country. Expect no such noble behavior this time.) What will they try? One bet is to find a friendly judge to throw out
the Florida results on a flimsy premise. They are already floating this as a trial balloon in the form of the allegedly "confusing" ballots in Palm Beach County. I have seen the ballots, they are not confusing in the

and Cook County, Illinois, in this very election. What is more, it is just as likely

The of-of-ballot issue is a mere pretext for an effort a judicial invalidation of the Florida election. While I hope this scenario doesn't come to pass, I fear that it will, and it

you won't either. The good news is that we are not without voice.

If it becomes widely reported - and it will - that there is a groundswell demanding that Gore back down and not embarrass the country, it will be very difficult for Gore to withstand the pressure. He will have to
relent. Here are some places to start...........

225-2671
Also: (202) 225--0100

Also, be sure to call your congressmen and both your senators. All these numbers are easily located on voter.com. You can contact them through the U.S. Capitol Switchboard:
U.S. Capitol Switchboard (all Senators and Representatives):
(202) 224-3121
Another office to call is that of Chicago's Mayor Richard M. Daley
(the brother of Gore's campaign manager, Bill Daley): Telephone: (312) 744-3300
FAX: (312) 744-2324

If you've never made a call like this, there's no reason to be shy.
They get opinion calls all the time and are set up to take them. In fact
they like calls. It helps them tell which way the wind is blowing.

Way to go, Mike!!!!!!!!
But I am afraid that this is falling on deaf ears. I have noticed that this faction of motorcyclest have no desire to stop the Gore administration from leaving them with nowhere to ride.
I will follow up evey way I can, but I believe it is an exercise in futility. Just look at Florida.
Can you spell"CIVIL WAR"?

CK:
I believe my ears and a lot of other ears on this forum work just fine. I look forward to these type of posts and respond in kind. I hope you're just trying to rile TT members to action.

BTW how come you haven't registered yet? I hope you did register to vote.

Mike, thanks for the post. We all need to be informed and ready to defend our rights.

Mike, Right On!!!! Thanks for all the info. I hope to see you at Stonyford, we can have an in depth talk about all this political garbage and why it is all happening to this country at this point in history, when we get up there. I don't know if I'll be able to bring my toy hauler trailer with me up there, it's for sale. I hate to tent camp in this COLD!! weather, but the riding should be worth the suffering if it's as good as you all say it is. Anyway, We need to pray for this country, and that the Lord would change the hearts of the people toward Him. God bless, Erik

God you're long winded, I wouldn't stand for it either...but you have to read 3-400 words to even figure out where you stand. I hope you prevail.

Long winded, strong minded. Some causes are lengthy but worth it if you care. Unfortunately not enough people in the US care and then the minority that do, control everything and the majority who have opinions but don't speak up get screwed. If you have a voice, you should be heard not clammed up somewhere. I do hope I prevail as well as many others who believe in our country and what is right. I speak up so I can be allowed to do the things I want to do such as riding. If our opinions are not heard we will be riding on Nintendo or play station not where we truely want to be.

Mike
