Have you ever heard any bigger truth than Helen Keller's "Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much"?

Can I vote for Barack Obama to declare martial law and cancel the election like some of those nutjob spammers claim he's going to do?

[Seriously, this is the first election where I wish that could actually happen...]

Are you referring to the title of the video which did, I now notice, capitalize the P, but it is really about the lower case one?

Don't we also have to look out for lower-case poles, depending on where they are?
