If we really want to change the direction our country is headed, to create the type of political revolution championed by Bernie Sanders and hoped for by some of the Trump supporters, then the time is nearly here.
No matter who wins the presidential election in 2016, there will be millions of disaffected voters, angry and afraid, primed for action. It seems prudent to make use of the outrage, to tap the well of distemper and to transform the malaise into the nectar of liberty and the milk of integrity.
This is undoubtably one the most corrupt elections in history. When we consider the Citizens United ruling and the subsequent influence of big money, the voter suppression laws and other voter suppression tactics such as cross-check, easily hackable and unverifiable electronic voting machines, gerrymandering, a highly dubious primary process manipulated by a captured fourth estate that gave Trump billions of dollars worth of free air-time while marginalizing the Sanders campaign and the shenanigans of the democratic party establishment, it is undeniable that our election systems and processes are in desperate need of reforms and contribute to a profound lack of confidence in the system by an unacceptably large portion of the electorate.
We have a crisis of confidence in our election process.
I therefore urge my fellow citizens to protest these 2016 elections with massive protests and peaceful civil disobedience.
December 11th and 12th would be an auspicious start and commemorates the Supreme Court's mishandling of the vote recount in Florida during the Bush vs. Gore contest.
January 21 is the anniversary of the Citizens United Ruling and would make another good protest date.
The last week of March has bountiful historical significance in the history of voting rights in the USA.
