Patriots for Gore
21 Dec 2003
As Mr. Dean began his introduction in Harlem that morning, he said what an honor it was to have former Vice President , Our Elected President here with us today, he went on to say, "I thank Al Gore for his extraordinary leadership in this party in the last couple of years. I told him, I say what I think, for better or worse, I told him the two best speeches in this campaign were given by somebody who is not running for president and that was his March and September speech about the war and about foreign policy". Howard Dean Dec 9, 2003

On November 7, 2000, 51,000.000 million people went to the polls and cast their vote for then Vice President Al Gore. Although Mr.Gore walked away from that election, with the people's vote, it was deemed irrelevant in a ruling issued by the US Supreme Court that marks a turning point in US history.

Now we enter the 2004 Presidential election season, and Democrats are coming out in droves to join anything that will enable them to participate in the fight to take their country back. Why, because they are angry about having their vote invalidated by the US Supreme Court in the election of 2000. They are coming out like never before to avenge the horrible injustice that was done to Al Gore.

In December of 2002, Al Gore said he had the energy and the drive and the ambition to make another campaign, so then why is he not running? He is the people's chosen leader of the Democratic party, he received the greatest amount of Democratic votes in the history of the United States, some 51,000.000 million votes, that were deemed irrelevant. What is keeping him from taking his rightful place in this historic fight to regain control of our country? That is a very good question, and one that we all should be asking our Democratic Leadership, for they alone have that answer.

Although the Democratic Leadership has supplied us with nine of America's best to represent our voice, they seem to move up ever so slowly in the polls against what some have said to be, “the worst President in US History”. You would think that with all the anger and a burning desire for justice, one of them, would be skyrocketing off the charts. The fact the that has not happened speaks volumes.

Although this election is far from over, one thing has become quite clear, a great many Americans feel that our country is being lead in the wrong direction, and they want change in that leadership. The only problem is, the one person who could unite them in a way no one else can, and lead them in the fight to avenge the horrible injustice of the 2000 election, that person...he's not running. Why?

Any registered Democrat can vote in the primary or the Democratic caucus for your area. At your voting booth, write in Al Gore’s name ‘X-VP Al Gore’, and DO NOT select another candidate. In some primaries, you cannot write-in Al Gore, choose “Uncommitted.” If it is an electronic voting booth, ask for assistance in using your write-in or uncommitted option. Check with your county Democratic party chair person to find out further information on what the polices are for your state. A vote for Al Gore in your primary or caucuses will not effect your vote in the general election next year. It will only serve to bring Mr. Gore into race to become our party's nominee.
