The Scott Walker recall election must not be rigged.

The Senate race between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts must not be rigged.

The 2012 General Election must not be rigged.

The bandwagon: Please, get on it with us to struggle for elections decided by publicly observed, secure hand-counted paper ballots (HCPB). If you "like" this Facebook page, Center for Hand-Counted Paper Ballots, you will be able to keep current with information on this endeavor and actions to take. You can also suggest to all of us what you think we can do about this dire situation. We cannot let the 1%, owners of the privatized electronic voting machine industry, continue to rig elections that belong to us, the 99%.

Non-violent resistance: The hard-won victories of the Civil Rights, Women's Suffrage and GLBTQ movements came about not only when people lobbied Congress (local or federal), wrote letters to the editor, held rallies and marches, signed petitions, and donated money. It took much more than that. Non-violent resistance was an integral and vital part of these movements.

We must pay close attention to the Occupies and what they are doing. Do mic checks everywhere. Do everything else you can think of to bring attention to the rigging of our elections and to help change the hearts, minds and souls of people everywhere.

Watch: Cameras: Fantastic You Tube instructions for taking pictures of the revolution, via extraordinary videographer, Nicole Desautels Schulte, on the ground in Wisconsin.

Thank you: Tunisia, Egypt, Wisconsin, Occupies, Deborah Sirotkin Butler, Stephen Caruso, Lucius Chiaraviglio, Michael Collins, Bob Fleischer, Mindy Fried, Brad Friedman, Janet Jesberg, Mary Magnuson, Nina Moliver, Marianne Moonhouse, Jim Mueller, Marguerite Rosenthal, Nicole Desautels Schulte, Joseph Skulan, John Washburn
