WE MUST STAND FOR OUR RIGHTS TO HAVE ALL OUR VOTES COUNT AND FOR OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.
Michigan Demands Representation (MDR) is a grassroots organization formed to protect the voting rights of Michigan citizens. We are not affiliated with any political organization. We received no funding from any corporate, political, or special interest group. We are a group of concerned voters who are outraged that our civil liberties are being violated. We, as Michiganders, must send a message to our elected officials that we will no longer sit idle and allow our voting rights to be abused and ignored. Any voter, regardless of party affiliation, should be concerned. This is a civil liberties issue, not a campaign or candidate issue.

Humor Has It... that the DNC is broke dick. Imagine that. The dick
Introducing Operation "Donation Vacation"
Have you received a request from the DNC for Donations? Do you feel like you have been ignored? Take a "Donation Vacation". Join in on the protest and send them this check for nothing to:
The Democratic National Committee
430 S. Capitol St. SE
Drive on over to the new site DNC Boycott (I prefer "Boyzcott" of course), read the rest, do your duty and download your blank check to send to the DNC. Tell the zeros at the DNC thanks a lot for nothing. Please note that you may have to change the graphic file extention from PNG to a JPG or GIF so that it will print properly. Get on the road for your Donation Vacation today!
If you happen to be from Michigan or Florida I would suggest doing what many have done already. Rip the check in half to make a point about our disenfranchisement and half vote status.

Just Say No Deal
A new coalition has formed this week called Just Say No Deal in reaction to the subversion of democracy committed by the Democratic Party that we have witnessed in this 2008 election year. We are aghast to discover they pre-selected and then pushed a flawed, unqualified, inexperienced, opportunist, no substance candidate down our throats by hook & crook tactics. Behind closed doors and against the will of the majority of We the People. I'm having none of it.
I too Just Say No Deal. Please go sign up at their new site and tell the DNC and the world: NObama. In no time flat they've had over 80+ sites join up and it is swiftly growing by the day. PUMA Power is roaring our displeasure. Millions of us will be heard before this fall. And go give our fine Ladies over at Hireheels.com some love for helping to put the Just Say No Deal website together. It's impressive how fast it has spread and gotten the media attention we need.
I've known since before we had our primary in Michigan on Jan 15th that I can never vote for Obama. The very person who made our primary more of a nightmare than it already was by deliberately removing his name from our ballot and talking half of the other guys into going along with him to diminish and attempt to invalidate Hillary Clinton's substantial lead and her win in my state. As the months have worn on it became clear there were many unsavory connections, aspects, and traits to Obama that we weren't aware of until this election cycle. America needs the competent candidate and that is Hillary Clinton.
We must Just Say No Deal. No Dice. No Chance. NObama.

Thanks go out to PatRacimora over at No Quarter for the graphic.
Apparently the DNC & RBC thinks the voters in Michigan and Florida only have half a brain left too. Are we supposed to be using our left brain or right brain now? Are we going to suffer phantom itches where the other half of our vote is supposed to be? It is too late for Dr. Dean to fix this up. We're not voter crash test dummies.
Make sure to read Piper's eyewitness account of the sham May 31st RBC meeting. Also Iphie over at Corrente has a couple of first person accounts of the meeting: Initial thoughts on RBC debacle, and a followup post with More from RBC meeting.

Update: Saw this cartoon on a blog, it perfectly captures how the DNC managed to make us MI & FL voters less than 3/5ths of a vote. Heckava job HowieCo, eh. I find it amazing that after this year's total clusterfuck that the DNC thinks I would trust them ever again. Much less bother to risk my vote being once again subverted or vote for them in any future primary. As it is the GE for this year is up in the air for me unless Hillary Clinton wins the nomination at the convention. I'm solidly in the millions saying NOBama. This Michigan voter won't ever vote for him. No Deal. No backing down. No dice. No chance.

Humor Has It... that the Rules and Bylaws Committee of the DNC thinks we are going to let them get away with breaking their own rules, fraud, unfair reflection, and vote stealing, all scott free. Not while I'm living and breathing here in Michigan. NO!, HELL NO!, and OH HELL NO!
The infamous meeting on May 31, 2008 was a complete farce. But I do understand why the "votes" were allowed to go through to screw over both Michigan and Florida. I suspect there were enough people on the committee that thought if these idiots want to push insane and unethical resolutions that go completely against the Democratic voting principles well then let us just get them officially on record. The legal stepping stone to the coming downfall of the DNC.
After this travesty of justice Harold Ickes and Tina Flournoy made the following statement for Senator Hillary Clinton:
Decision on Florida and Michigan
by Maggie Williams, Campaign Manager
Today’s results are a victory for the people of Florida who will have a voice in selecting our Party’s nominee and will see its delegates seated at our party’s convention. The decision by the Rules and Bylaws Committee honors the votes that were cast by the people of Florida and allocates the delegates accordingly.
We strongly object to the Committee’s decision to undercut its own rules in seating Michigan’s delegates without reflecting the votes of the people of Michigan.
The Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but four of the delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.
We reserve the right to challenge this decision before the Credentials Committee and appeal for a fair allocation of Michigan’s delegates that actually reflect the votes as they were cast.
I'll be posting much more about this as the summer wears on. And we will take this to the convention in Denver. You didn't count my valid vote but you can count on this.
