Election Theft This Year will Demand a General Strike

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   4 comments
A history changing election is on the horizon and its outcome may have nothing to do with the actual vote totals but in how we as people respond if it is stolen. In 2000 it was clear that if Florida votes been counted fully Al Gore would have won. The Supreme Court won't even honor or claim this bogus decision that handed the Presidency to George W. Bush on a silver platter. In 2004 Ohio clearly delivered the election to GW Bush with help of Republican hack and Secretary of State Blackwell, and vote counting fouls by GOP machinations in many other states as well defied the exit polls in 2004. Had it not been for a landslide Barrack Obama would not be in office today.

On both election theft occasions the people of this country allowed it to happen. We allowed our the democracy of our country to be subverted, corrupted and trashed without a whimper. We stand on the brink of another electoral disaster and nothing is being done to seriously prepare us to pro actively oppose another theft. Make no mistake Karl Rove has been working overtime in the depths of darkness plotting and planning how exactly to steal just enough votes through a myriad of ways. Overtime he has strengthened the belief that exit polls aren't accurate and in this election they won't even be taken in 19 states, even though down ticket races have the same right to election integrity as does the Presidential race. The right wing players are already catapulting continuously how wrong polls can be.

The suspect and provenly hack able touch screen and digital voting counting machines and central tabulators are still very much in use. This year disenfranchising voter ID laws and obstacles to voting have been aggressively fought for by the same players and political party that already has election theft blood on its hands. Surely with their Rovian brain in charge they have developed even more insidious and hidden ways to steal our Nation from us.

Maybe we will experience a landslide to make election theft mute. If it is close you can bet that the GOP election theft machine will be in overdrive. Operatives will be ready to mobilize protest and stop counts etc. Vote counts will contradict the exit polls. Like they did in Florida in 2000. The media machine will be discounting exit polls and claiming some miraculous turn out by evangelicals or some other class of voter. Seemingly ridiculous excuses will be spewed by National players in order to move the country forward to a resolution regardless if it is justified or not.

What kind of people allow their system of government to be so totally disregarded and defecated on?

To be unprepared for action is to seal our fate in allowing the Oligharchs and right wing machine to beat us again. Is their a central voice of the people to lead and empower us? Is Occupy, or Move On, or the DNC ready to fight? Should we not ourselves be preparing to stand up with the writing - Voter ID - so boldly scribbled on the wall before us? Isn't it quite clear that those screaming vote fraud and theft are the ones preparing to do it?

If we do nothing we will see another Presidency brazenly stolen before our eyes. Are we ready to take to the streets and have a general strike? Lets mobilize ourselves through social media. We need a plan and we need to be ready. You can rest assured the GOP and Oligarchs have rooms full of operatives working right now organizing their minions to be poised for action. Are we really going to lie down for 3 out of 4 recent Presidential elections being stolen from us? In the face of this threat let's be safe rather than sorry and let's be ready to sacrifice our time and livelihoods if necessary. Without  a serious commitment to take decisive action to protect our elections we might as well start rolling over now.
