WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

WA Governor's Race: Here's the Deal
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics, WA Governor's Race

From here on out we've got 2 choices: 1) We have a re-vote, 2) We have an election contest.

The revote is the most efficient, effective, fair, and positive of the two alternatives. It will resolve this entire process more quickly than anything else.

Following is the press release from the Rossi campaign this afternoon:

No, Attorney General Gregoire, this isn’t ‘golf’

With so many disenfranchised military voters,

how can this be a fair election?

Bellevue, WA – Today Dino Rossi stood with the family of a disenfranchised Marine from Snohomish County to again call for a revote in the governor’s race.

Tyler Farmer is a Marine serving in Iraq who was recently wounded in Fallujah.  He is registered to vote in Snohomish County, and went to extraordinary lengths to make sure he’d be able to vote, but he didn’t receive his ballot until after Election Day.  His parents, Charles and Marty Farmer, and his brother, Dylan Farmer, today questioned the fairness of the election process.

“I’d like to ask Christine Gregoire how she can take office in good conscience when so many of our Armed Forces, including my son, weren’t allowed to vote,” said Charles.  “The rules were changed for some people in King County, but not for everyone else.  That’s wrong.”

Rossi said the election is such a mess that at this point the best solution is a revote.  He said his office is receiving a steady stream of calls and e-mails from members of the military, or their loved ones, who never got their ballots or received them too late.

Rossi’s spokeswoman Mary Lane said Gregoire’s remark about the election not being “golf” and that there are “no do-overs” isn’t a sufficient answer to people like Tyler Farmer.

“Christine Gregoire is trying to sweep this election mess under the carpet because she doesn’t want to face up to all the wrongfully disenfranchised people across Washington,” said Lane.  “But people like Tyler Farmer, and all the other servicemen and women who were denied their right to vote, aren’t going away.  And the fact that this entire election process has been a complete mess isn’t going away, either. 

“We need a revote because the people of Washington deserve to have a governor who actually wins an election fair and square.”

This is stark reality folks. Here's the simple question: Is it OK to change the rules - to ostensibly fix a 'mistake' - to make sure that you count the vote from a guy in King County who's loosening his belt for the holidays but you don't change the rules for a mistake that prevents a wounded soldier's vote from counting? You can't have it both ways.

Great job with the web site for those of us outside Washington trying to keep up with the election results, as the story has fallen off the national news. I suppose Democrats only want recounts until they win, then the counting can stop.
From past reports, it seems like a typical Lyndon Johnson election. "Oh our candidate lost by a few votes, well here are two previously unknown, unaccounted for ballot boxes. And, gee, guess what, now our candidte wins." This is democracy from the Dems. point of view.

And where is voter fraud easiest to carry out?? In cities with large populations which, by some coincidence are Dem strongholds.

My question, though, is where are Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharton to make sure that every vote is counted??

Good luck out there on the left coast!!

EMCEE: Thank you for your support. Each day what has happened gets more apparent. We'll keep you posted - and we'll keep standing. Oh, abd Jeese and Al are too busy looking for 119,000 extra votes in Ohio.
