Don't Sign This Initiative

The GOP is at it again: Now that their untrustworthy electronic voting machines have been caught out, they’re up to new election-rigging tricks.

Democrats around California have been circulating the following alert and urging fellow activists to spread the word:

A GOP-backed initiative to toss out California's winner-take-all system of assigning electoral votes was approved for circulation Wednesday, and Democrats immediately slammed it as a backdoor attempt to hand Republicans the 2008 presidential election. The initiative is a ticking time bomb for Democratic presidential hopes

next year, which are pinned on winning all of the state's 55 electoral votes. The measure would award a single electoral vote to the presidential winner in each of the state's 53 congressional districts and two to the statewide victor.

The approval Wednesday by the Secretary of State's and Attorney General's offices means supporters can begin gathering signatures to qualify the initiative for the June ballot. "This is not reform," Howard Dean, head of the Democratic National Committee, charged in a conference call with California reporters. "It's just another Republican attempt to rig an election."

choose as the next Democratic President of the United States.

There are so many problems that the next President will have to face. He or She will have a whole lot of work to undertake.

You all know I support Hillary for President because I believe she is smart and will put together the "best and brightest" to help our nation return to the tenets of the Constitution. However, it is a long campaign (maybe not). We may have a candidate by February. If so, what a ride, two candidates for President from either side and a lame duck President. History in the making is before us. Go for it!

Our candidates for President are running hard. Some have chosen to be a bit nasty and Hillary Clinton has taken it in stride. Good for her.

When we nominate our candidate, the Republicans will do their dirty tricks on our nominee, you can bet on it! Let's unite and be there for whomever we
