Our Campaign Is Not Over Yet!
So many people have written hoping we continue the fight, count every ballot and make sure no one steals this election. Acorn and the unions did their best to try and say that the conservative movement was a sham. Rest assured they will not succeed. On Election Night the information we received was far different from what we received this week. They will not silence our voice that easily!
There is also the fact that NY is using the Sequoia Voting Systems machines. Princeton University (http://citp.princeton.edu/voting/advantage/) cited them as having been susceptible to voter fraud in the past. There's a reason why the State of California BANNED them. Yet we must now prepare for this possibility as well.
We are working to get the message out that this election is far from over! Our campaign and the New York Conservative Party is watching this recount and preparing for our next course of action. On Friday Doug appeared on Cavuto on FoxNews and will appear on Glen Beck's radio show on Monday. It is a call-to-arms for conservatives. Help however you can; post blogs, comment on websites and donate to help us mount a challenge if need be!

But Hoffman conceded though - does that make the race officially over?
Things are pretty abysmal when purported election returns can be that far askew. Even if Hoffman can’t grab the seat, the cheaters deserve to be thoroughly embarrassed.
Can’t he un-concede, like Al Gore?
If it were a demo, would it be over?
It’s time we stop playing by rules they do not recognize.
Embarrassed??? They need to be PROSECUTED!
Those cretins don't embarrass.
This should be a warning to conservatives... do NOT concede too soon!
“Concession” here doesn’t have any legal standing. It’s just considered good manners in any contest. The winner is whomever received the most amount of votes, and this race hasn’t been certified since the votes haven’t all been counted. Pelosi swore in Owens on the face of incomplete numbers.
Owens has not been certified, not that that ever let the RATS bother them on a technically. If he were somehow to be named the winner and certified, then it will be interesting to see how this would play out.
They lose credibility in the public eye. Who cares how they feel, if it hurts their ability to get votes even beyond their ability to cheat.
Could Pelosi be impeached for this?
Fight Doug Fight........it’s about time you got what happened to you on election night...you were had by the criminal enterprise called the dem party...
I’m glad this isn’t over. I felt it was rushed too much. The dems needed this one to make points against Sarah Palin and others who came to help.
Sure. The concession isn't official at all. The election results have not yet been certified by law.
If Dede had won the majority of the votes, she would still have been the lawfully elected representive.
1. Article One of the United States Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power of impeachment and the Senate the sole power to try convictions.
2. The Constitution defines impeachment at the federal level and limits impeachment to “The President, Vice President, and all civil officers of the United States” who may only be impeached and removed for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”. Several commentators have suggested that Congress alone may decide for itself what constitutes an impeachable offense.
3. In 1970, then-House Minority Leader Gerald R. Ford defined the criteria as he saw it: “An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history.”
4. The Constitution grants the House the power to impeach “The President, the Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States.” Many believe firmly that members of Congress are not officers of the United States.
Doesn’t sound very promising, does it?
