Where are all the protestors now?

Norm Coleman and his republican friends and donors are continuing to try and disenfranchise voters and deny the people of MN their choice.

  • To allow 400 votes from 4000 doesn't seem fair to me. I think he should fight for what he feels is right and what his constituents are telling him they want.

  • What about those disenfranchised ballots? How would you feel if yours was one of those and the opposing party was about to be sworn in? 


    I'm just stating that I don't really care about it.  I didn't really care about it when it happened in Florida in 2000 (where I lived at the time).  So no, I will not participate in stopping the political process.

  • Oh, and to answer your question, I imagine the protesters are at work, hoping that there will be some possibilities of checks and balances in our government.

  • I'm guessing they're awaiting further instruction from Fox News.

  • Hey anon- thanks for the name calling, but the fact is, Fox News promoted them- and that's why they got the number (meager though it was) that they did. That's also why it was basically taken over by the conservatives, and why I, as a libertarian, didn't participate after all.
