I think Dustin should accept NAMBLA's endorsement of his candidacy. If anyone can help him engineer a come-from-behind victory, they can.

So, how long does it take for Hyperspace to add a referral to a candidate's total? I just renewed my subscription 3 more times. I hope it works and helps put Dustin just that much closer to beating this phantom SW fan.
Good Luck Dustin!!!
He still can do it... I have faith.
All we have to do is get the backing of what's left of the Star Wars "community".
Well, there' still Yakface and GH, right?
Up until now though, Dustin has probably gotten all of his referrals through the endless spamming. I would imagine that in the final hours, Rebelscum will start registering accounts themselves to put him over the top.That would be a crappy way to win, and I'm not even sure you could do it. Wouldn't you have to have legitimate names, e-mail addresses and home addresses for each "member" who signed up? It's not like one person or entity could donate $800 and then assign memeberships to people after the fact. However, I wouldn't put it past RS to figure out a way to do this, even if it meant buying memberships or membership extensions for all the staff members at the last minute.
It's what I would do if the race were that close and I were in Dustin's shoes. Basically just spend the money you were going to spend to go to Comic Con anyway.
Then I'd give the accounts away.
If we suddenly went 'cold turkey' on Gas powered Autos what would happen to all the American auto making companys? This world today seems to be about High priced gas sucking SUV's and many other types of autos that folks want to be 'different'..or because they're cool. I could totally see the automakers taking a huge blow initially if we suddenly had to convert to a boring same-as-everybody else alternate fuel vehicle-not to mention production would have to catch up to the demand for these vehicles if we quit..the oil. Sure they could catch up but I def. don't think it would be a smooth conversion.I wonder if that scenario would effect the US/world economy at all . I believe there is technology today to have Gas vehicles that(even v8's) get a ton of MPG. They'll never be produced however, since it would hurt auto sales and Gas demands and oil company profits. Such is the world the way it is now..like Dressel says..and we just have to deal with it 'cause there's nothing we can do about it .The American automobile industry is going to be in a world of hurt if they don't start producing more and better alternative fuel vehicles. If we don't, someone else, i.e. the Japanese, will. Just think how much better the auto industry would be doing today if Ford and/or GM had developed the first reliable, mass-market hybrid cars instead of letting Honda and Toyota do it. Gas-electric hybrids don't make up the majority of American automobile purchases yet, but that segment of the industry is growing rapidly and right now foreign automakers are reaping the lion's share of the profits.
Bear in mind Jades, that the show isn't very Star Wars-centric. At least not in my experience in the past.
