Hello Mark & Brad,

You both are my heroes of 2005. I actually have been in a state of shock since 2000 —– I am now much better able to start shaking it off since I heard both of you speaking in Portland this year. Big things are coming — we’ll take our country back from the brink. And it will be in no small part because of the courageous, pioneering work of both of you on election reform.

Your revelations about the crusade against our democracy are chilling but I am really feeling an exhiliration of finally coming out of the dark (after so many years!) and I’d like to express profound gratitude for your courage in finding the truth and informing the public.

Besides thanking you, I wanted to write to send you a blog entry I put together from Professor Miller’s speech during his book tour through Portland in November.

It’s at this link: http://www.oregonvrc.org/SpeakerSeries1

The Q&A portion is not transcribed yet but it is fantastic. I also have recordings of the entire speech and will be posting them on our site (http://www.OregonVRC.org) in 10 minute segments so anyone can listen. I’m happy to make these files available for posting directly on your blogs if you would like. I want to make a DVD as well, since we have some good quality video of the event. Every American needs to hear this information!

Well, Happy non-denominational mid-winter celebration and here’s to getting some democracy back in the ’06 election!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

No Comments to “Snapping out of it”

  • I remember e-mailing this woman about how a: this election conspiracy was a load of crapola, and b: the Democrats are the ones who like to pull electoral hanky-panky. The response was a lot of hemming and hawing. What a waste.

  • I would like to add my deep thanks to Mark Crispin Miller, with his penetrating insights about the current threat to our democracy. Fooled Again was my #1 holiday gift, and already several recipients have expressed outrage at what they have learned about the tactics employed by the Right to steal the 2004 election. In spite of the invective of those who would cover it up, once people read the facts of what happened, they are “getting it”, and are joining the effort to stop the very theft of our Democracy.

  • Oh, this is a MUST READ. Thank you for posting this link to your talk in Portland!

    And thank you for your dedication and service Mr. Miller.
