Elections Aren’t Enough, Revolution is in Order Here!
Elections aren’t going to change the path America is on. Organized revolt, massive civil action and economic boycotts at the very least would be the beginning a perpetual commitment to protecting public governance from private take over. Our system is a farce. Obama is a tool to placate “Liberals”. Every candidate that can assume a position of any real power is vetted by corporate power. To believe otherwise is to be ignorant and live in a fantasy world. Americans that continue to invest in this fraud only empower it.
We need an American Spring!
If I wanted to further the accomplishments of corporate and right wing America… I would tell people to vote for this corporate shill and Reagan revivalist, Barack Obama and just shut up. He’s doing a great job of subverting well meaning democrats into the right lane as it is. The last thing I would do is advocate for populist revolt yet this is the response I get from rank and file “democrats”.
I submit that the elections will be another fraud from top to bottom and any approach that relies on using the system without a radical and coordinated battle plan of follow up measures and policing in perpetuity is doomed at worst and will result it glacially slow progress if any at all at best. My view remains a call to massive revolt against the system and a commitment to reformation backed by civil disobedience and economic boycott.
I stand outside the popular opinion on some critical issues, one BIG one in particular:
I believe that participating in the Federal election system is to support fraud and the crony capitalism that runs America.
I respect each individuals right to free speech and the expression of it through the vote. I would never tell anyone how to vote but I don’t have to agree with it. Having said that…
From my outsider’s position, a position that–were it not so isolated, I believe could start an avalanche of populism–I am calling for withdraw from the Federal election scam by anyone interested in starting a movement to free ourselves from this fraud. This is only a part of a larger movement and not a scheme to elect Republicans in spite of the bleating from the Obamabot sheep.
That a republican might win is a fact I concede but to center on that issue as if it is the only one that matters is ignorant and short sighted. This plan calls for the discontinuation of the mind numbing, false sense of security that comes from participating in a fraudulent system and electing Wall Street scum bags like Barack Obama just because they are “less evil” than the Republican candidate.
I suggest the disconnection and disengagement of the greater mass of Americans from their complicit activity in what is a scam designed to marginalize the citizen and empower the powerful. A movement of this nature would rely on creating large disruptions in commerce and the operation of repressive private and government activity. Simply not voting is a wasted act without proper follow up and planning.
This would be a massive act of civil disobedience that would not relent until the citizens are acknowledged and policies made a reality. This would require sacrifice by all involved and some more than others. People like my wife and I bound to corporate medical treatment extortion to stay alive and those in compromised earning capacities would have to be willing to weather this storm. It would require commitment and sacrifice not just going to a corporate voting machine and pretending to make a difference.
For this movement to succeed the goals to be met would have to be clearly enumerated and negotiated with strength and clarity of purpose. This would only be the beginning of would would have to be a new model and path for the future of America. The application of eighteenth and nineteenth century social and economic protocol is over.
America is already a laughing stock around the globe, an executive litter box famous for its disengaged, ill informed, gullible populace. Continuing on this path and playing in to the same hands will not lead to a different end but rather more of the same.
Desperate times call for…
