Pay off the polls to warp the figures, coach the Media to collaborate with the pollsters in lying to the public, and declare the “winner” of the “election” chosen by the Corporations (Haliburton et al): That would at least appear to be the name of the game in 2008. And since that has apparently been the case, it will very likely also be the game in 2009.
It is the inverse of the same game based on which Kucinich was barred from participating in the Debates. Because you see, the mainstream polls said that Kucinich was at the bottom of the pile. So since he had no chance of winning---or so it was claimed by the pollsters----the media (and the corporations who sponsor the media), declared their “First amendment rights” to X out the Candidates of their own choosing.
My hunch is that by installing McCain, Bush plans to continue his wars (and profiteering) in absentia. But just in case the Dems do win---because after all, anti-Republican sentiment runs high even among Republican constituents----then the carefully selected Democratic Candidates also are pro-war. So for Haliburton et al, it’s win-win, regardless of the election outcome.
To further assure a Haliburton victory, there is also California, the new Ohio/Florida of 2008---and 2009? Double Bubble Trouble as it has come to be known, seems to only occur in Democratic votes. Aha! Mission accomplished. According to an e-mail from the Courage Campaign on 2-7-07, a staggering 50% of those who registered in California as “Decline to State” voters lost their vote: These Decline-to-state voters in Los Angeles County, choosing to vote Democratic, were not instructed to fill in a particular bubble on the ballot which would actually get their vote counted. Short of filling in that one bubble, the entire ballot was tossed out. Such has been the actual experience of voters in the Southern California area. There go many Democratic votes….pouf! Gone. In fact, the Courage Campaign says that these “pouf’d” votes comprise as much as 19.3% of the total California electorate.
However, We the People have the power to intercept the plans above, if my hunch about the plan to install McCain is correct. Here is where our power lies:
Regarding Double Bubble Trouble, the Courage Campaign sounds a note of hope
“Had we not warned Dean Logan” (Registrar of Voters in Los Angeles area) “and the press on Monday, the numbers of disenfranchised voters could have been significantly higher. As a result of our threatened legal action, the Associated Press, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and several TV and radio stations jumped on the issue immediately and Logan issued a Public Service Announcement and last-minute directions to poll workers.”
Obviously, lawsuits work. Because not only were matters quickly addressed, but also the media jumped in with news coverage, based on those threatened lawsuits. So when all else fails, threaten a lawsuit and action, plus news coverage, is a greatly increased likelihood! Bingo, a winning strategy.
We must use this strategy to our advantage, as disenfranchised voters! Class action lawsuits, hi-ho silver, here we come!
Further, because Logan has refused to count the remaining disenfranchised votes until after the certification of the election, it must be publicly demanded that he step down from public office. Shame him, publicly, even if he chooses not to step down! Show him down in letters to the editor! Sing in the streets! Time to show what stuff we are made of instead of playing doormat, don’t you think?
Here is what we can do about the cooperation of the corporations, media and mainstream polls to (possibly?) heist the election to McCain:
a) By keeping an eye on the wordsmith’s game which brainwashes the nation, we can write letters to the editor to rebut those word phrases which will be used as a mind-manipulating tool. So in other words, we can wordsmith “the other side” right back.
Example: “The war on terror” can be renamed, by us, as “The war OF terror”. And most people will agree. Bingo! Brainwash re-done. For the general good and for the actual truth itself.
Another example: The Republican word game of dubbing Democrats as “soft on terror” can be accurately renamed as “Aggressive in war crimes” etc. As word spreads, public officials will tailor their work accordingly. Because they want to remain popular---and in office! So now we get the picture, folks: Public policy is shaped, and manipulated, by wordsmiths.
Therefore, to fight back with the wordsmith’s art is a very important key. Because national policy---and the amending of the Constitution itself-----will follow suit. We DO have the power to wordsmith right back, thus reshaping public policy: Let’s not forget this! Further, we must use that power. It’s just horrid---and absolutely important!
b) Knowledge is power. To publicly expose the game plan for what it is----that is, to falsify polling figures based on the media’s mind games, and based on those same falsified polls to distort the election figures and declare the “winner“---- will also be to dismantle the plan. Because once the public sees right through it----well in advance of the next election----- the powers-that-be can’t pull it off anymore. And they know it. The truth will set you free!
