don't waste that cash on Ralph.

I've already asked top Ohio Republicans to raise $10,000 in donations and sponsored $1,000/plate fundraising dinners.

Russian dictator Joseph Stalin once said: "Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything."

The voting machines are simply the final nail in the people's coffin. The comatose electorate rests silently as the hammer of authoritarianism falls.

Corporate America is very close to running this country. The only thing that is stopping them from taking total control are the pesky voters.

We have a proven track record in Florida.

the Bush campaign uses the designations "Pioneer" and "Ranger" for elite fund-raisers who collect a minimum of $200,000 and $100,000, respectively. I am a Bush Pioneer, and proud of it: in July, a fund-raiser at my home with Vice President Dick Cheney netted $500,000.

Our competitors are Accenture (formerly known as Anderson Consulting), EDS, Election Systems and Software (ES&S), and Sequoia - but I'm confident that we lead the pack in electronic vote tabulation.
