I disagree. Until the research is credible and vetted, investigating
is premature. Many people don't seem to understand, investigating
supposed discrepancies in the vote costs millions of dollars. The
recount in Ohio will cost the state $1.5 million. That's money that
could pay for other things. So you don't run off on wild goose chases
just because some "researcher" says, "Oooooo, look at this. This
looks really unusual."
You do realize that some people consider investigation and research to
be connected and that, if there is any implication of a problem (whether
the all-knowing creationist agrees or not) that that problem should be
"looked into" (does that better suit your vocabulary?)....
So, what you're really saying is that you're not willing to back an
investigation until an investigation is done which shows that an
investigation is warranted, correct?
Well, of course you'd believe that! It's politically expediant for you. :)
It also highlights a disturbing circular reasoning. Considering that Paul
is TEACHING at a supposedly "respected" *university*, we shold all be very
afraid of our nations schools.

Civilization is in a tailspin - everything is backwards, everything is
upside down- doctors destroy health, psychiatrists destroy minds, lawyers
destroy justice, the major media destroy information, governments destroy
freedom and religions destroy spirituality - yet it is claimed to be
healthy, just, informed, free and spiritual. We live in a social system
whose community, wealth, love and life is derived from alienation,
poverty, self-hate and medical murder - yet we tell ourselves that it is
biologically and ecologically sustainable.
The Bush plan to screen whole US population for mental illness clearly
indicates that mental illness starts at the top.
