The Achilles' heel of American corporate fascism is BOYCOTTS, BOYCOTTS, & MORE BOYCOTTS.

**********************************************************************
OK, we did the political thing. Progressives and liberals got the Congress back in 2006 and kudos' to us!

But three desperately important (and related) things we also learned during these six horror show Bush/Republican years are:

(l.) Politics ain't enough! Indeed, wishful thinking notwithstanding, politics is now more part of the problem than the solution to our dying Constitutional Republic.

(2.) We've also realized with absolute certainty that the United States of America is a Dictatorship of the Rich. Time to stop all the lies, games, and propaganda crap. FACT: less of 2% of our country is making fools and servants out of all of the rest of us. However, Bush allowed the vampire rich to come too far out into the daylight, and now we can see blood on the lips of these astronomically rich elites, e.g., the Bush (alias Saudi) Royal Family.

(3.) The 3rd and logistically critical political realization is that America's dem centrists (e.g., the DLC, Carville/Clintons, Joe Lieberman, etc.) are mere lackeys of the pig, pig rich. In other words, the "centrists" (what a laugh!) constantly suck up to their multimillionaire and billionaire masters. To say it straight out, these collaborators with the vampire rich are the mortal enemies of the middle and lower classes. Hey, that's us, you know -- the 98 plus percent.

So, what to do, what to do?

One thing is to see dem centrists for what they are, i.e., revolting court jesters of the pig, pig rich.

Another thing is put on our thinking caps and find NON POLITICAL ways to save our country. Yes, the 2006 midterms went pretty well, so we do have a few political hand holds for a change, but that's not going to be nearly enough since the vampire rich are going to massively counter attack between now and 2008.

As we all know, they control the Judas media, so forget these pseudo "journalists". Fox Snooze, "Clear" Channel, etc. Barf bags aren't the solution anymore.

We need to build on our fragile political gains and to borrow a comic phrase: AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

You know, we really do have a secret weapon (with a money back guarantee) which will absolutely bring down corporate fascism. We really do, but it will take colossal internet networking to make it work.

It's boycotts, my friends, boycotts, boycotts, and so help me God, still more boycotts. What's the soft underbelly of the Bush/Cheney energy companies? You know, the companies whose profits have gone up SEVERAL HUNDRED PERCENT. Frankly, I don't know anyone in the middle or lower classes (the 98 plus percent again) whose income has gone up several hundred percent. Do you?

Anyway, the exquisite irony is that these vampires need us! Clear Channel would tank if we got key advertisers to stop their accounts. And why would they do that? Because we had a nation wide network of American citizens who stopped using the products of anyone who advertised on Clear Channel (or Fox Snooze).

Yes, it would be gigantic mess to get this off the ground. Granted, it would be a virtual political moon shot. Very, very delicate and complicated at the beginning, but if enough of us keep hammering at this theme, and FOLLOWING THROUGH with the network agreed upon boycotts, I think the extent of the healing of America would be quasi miraculous.

We can bring this vampire oligarchy to its knees with a one/two punch of continued political gains AND a national, internet procedure for systematic boycotts.

Hey, my friends, I'm groping here, but I KNOW this would work, and I think most of you do too. The thing now is not to let this logistic flame go out. Some of you computer pros (who can certainly run circles around me), what do you think? If it was ever life and death time to collectively brainstorm about our beloved country, this may be it!

We can boycott these evil pigs at the same time we continue our political activism (e.g., politically work to tax the living sh*t out of them), and then maybe, for the first time, the American Dream will be a reality.

Thanks for listening to my SOS. To end on a terrible cliché, "If there's a will, there's a way".
