THE CONVENTION WILL SOON BE FINISHED BUT WE WON'T BE.

The Democratic National Convention is shaping up to be the most dishonest and corrupt in recent political history, without regard for the fact that every Democratic rule and democratic principle has been violated in the name of pushing a candidate who the majority of the primary and caucus goers voted against in order to fullfill some agenda.

Until it unfolds, we won't know the exact form of what we now know will definitely amount to a rigged, dishonest roll call vote. Another thing we do know is that it is going to rob 18 million voters of their franchise. And when it has come to this entire nominating process the Bush Administration will have shown more respect for the voting rights of Iraqis than the DNC has shown for the voting rights of registered Democrats and delegates to the Democratic Convention. And that cannot be ignored.

We are preparing and planning a public course of action, once again using mass media in response to what the DNC has done to the process itself. With the help of our contributors our ad campaign will begin immediately post convention and go right through to the general election itself up to Election Day. We have the ideas ready, and we will act as quickly as funds permit.

With the help of our donors, we will be able to do what we can to make sure that when Election Day is over and all the votes are counted, the corruption and dishonesty that has plagued this entire process, will, in the end, count for nothing.

Heidi and Marc, I'm delighted to hear that the work of The Denver Group won't end with the convention. I attribute the fact that there is even going to be a mere show of a roll call vote to your work. Without you, I'm sure we would have seen no vote at all.

Like so many people, both in and out of PUMA, the undemocratic nature of this election is really unsettling to me. It cannot be allowed to continue. This line really says it all:

the Bush Administration will have shown more respect for the voting rights of Iraqis than the DNC has shown for the voting rights of registered Democrats and delegates to the Democratic Convention.

I would love to see that show up in an ad. I keep thinking that our election system has become far more corrupt than all the countries we constantly criticize. And that is not just unacceptable, it's also dangerous.

Unity's just another word for nothing left to lose.
I am disgusted. The Democratic Party has lost me for good, and the Denver Group has a loyal supporter.

My anger is turned to resolve. I am committed to the destruction of the apparatus that brought about this travesty, and the end of the political careers of those who made it happen.

I have no money to give. Please tell me how I can help.
