What to do if Al Gore steals the election

Hello all. just trying to spread the word. I found this on the Jeep bbs. from Doug'97tj he wrote, Got this off Jeeps Unlimited. Looks like a good idea to me.United Republican Fund of Illinois Chicago
November 9, 2000

From: Joseph A. Morris, President

Herewith is some practical advice on action that every citizen can take in the event that the Florida recount confirms the election of George Bush, but Al Gore fails to concede.

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 to be counted. Those ballots will be overwhelmingly for Bush, a minimum of 60% and probably
closer to 75%. If the count goes our way tomorrow, we have won this election.

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 will 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 atrial balloon in the form of the allegedly "confusing" ballots in Palm Beach County. I have seen the ballots - they are not confusing in the least.
Indeed, they are identical in form to the punch-card ballots used in Chicago and Cook County, Illinois, in this very election. What is more, it is just as likely that Palm Beach County voters who wanted to vote for Bush
inadvertently voted for Nader. All parties approved the form of ballot before the election. The form-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 will only have disastrous results for the country. The election fight could drag on for months and actually be decided by a court! If this comes to pass
the vision of our Founders and the blood of patriots will have been betrayed.

Personally, I am not going to stand for this, and I hope you won't either.

The good news is that we are not without voice.
HERE IS WHAT MUST BE DONE: if the vote count affirms Bush's election, we allow a short grace period to see the reaction of the Gore camp. If they have not graciously conceded after a few hours, we must bombard the news media and our public officials AT EVERY LEVEL with phone calls of outrage
that demand Gore's concession. I mean literally millions of phone calls. We must jam their phone banks with calls.There are millions of us so it shouldn't be too difficult. (While you're at it, send e-mails to your local newspapers as well.)

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:

The White House: telephone (202) 456-4114 FAX 202)456-2461 e-mail: [email protected]

The Vice President's Office: telephone 202) 274-5000 FAX 202) 456-2883
e-mail [email protected] Vice President's Senate Office:
telephone: (202) 224-2424

Senator Tom Daschle (Senate Democratic Leader): (202) 224-2321 Also: (202)224-5556
Representative Dick Gephardt (House Democratic Leader): (202) 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 also 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.

Re: What to do if Al Gore steals the election

Frankly, the only guy I could vote for in good conscience for president is Jesse Ventura. He seems to be the only non-sellout in politics at this time.

I guess Bush is the lessor of the evils when it comes to offroading and how my company is impacted. I just wish I could actually be psyched about voting for someone :^(

Re: What to do if Al Gore steals the election

well here is some more ammo to work with.after my calls were made i wanted to see just how close the race was.did you know out of 3111 counties in the US gore won 677 and bush took 2,434.on land mass gore took 580k sq mi and bush took 2,427k sq mi.we have to be as proactive as they are.if we lose this election,we lose it all.i ask that you pray for the safety of bush.if gore cant win fair and square,why not knock off the other side.the clinton/gore group has a trail of dead bodies a mile long.RR

Re: What to do if Al Gore steals the election

Ranger Rick, I would be interested in where you got your figures.

In response to the original post; as far as telephone bombing anyone, I would prefer to fire bomb them. As a member of neither major party I find this whole thing rather hypocritical. They are both two faced phoney a$$holes. Gore won the popular vote and Bush is sure to win the electoral college vote. I doubt either would make a good president or make any significant improvement in my life or the life of my grown children. At least Bush Jr. picked a better running mate than his father did. It is unfortunate that the two big parties forced the smaller parties out of the debates. What a sham!! I am with Glen; RUN JESSE RUN!!! Maybe in four years we can have a multiparty campaign. I am confident that whom ever gets in will be a one term president. Neither have a true mandate from the people.

On the positive side I believe that this is exactly the type of scenario that the founding fathers invisioned and why the electorial college was created. One more check and balance.

Re: What to do if Al Gore steals the election

I gave 13 years to defending my country, and I'll be damn if I'm gonna let some mealy mouth worm make a mockery of the U.S. Anyone who would give the Red, White and Blue a punch in the eye for the sake of their own ends, REALLY pisses me off. Count me in.
