More Effectively Organizing and Focusing The Resistance and Revolution
May 1, 2017
So, you want a revolution, right? Perhaps you got involved with Indivisible or Our Revolution. That's great, I did too, but really, those aren't revolutionary organizations. They are conventional politics.
I want a real revolution! I know damn well that we can't vote our way out of this mess. After all, the elections are rigged, political offices have been stolen. Need proof, or evidence?
Who remembers the Supreme Court awarding GW Bush the Presidency even though Gore won the vote count.
Who is familiar with the works of Greg Palast? He warned us the elections would be stolen and showed us how. Funny how no mainstream media covered his stories. That brings me to point two; Corporate media is complicit in election fraud. They are the gatekeepers who report the counts. So, what do we do?
Protest, rally, organize....and consider this; most people think that the protest marches and rallies are a way for the people to be heard, a way to influence our so-called elected representatives. Abandon the notion and replace it with this; deep demonstrations are a way to plan, organize, educate and recruit members of the revolution/resistance. Here are some suggested date to organize with and to work together with. There is a theme...
Jan 21 was the infamous Citizens United Ruling and the Women's March on Washington
Feb 22 was the date in 1797 that the New Jersey Assembly passed legislation allowing women the right to vote, a right that they soon thereafter lost. This would be an auspicious date to continue the resistance of the misogynist in chief.
The last week of March is significant in our history of events pertaining to electoral participation and integrity.
March 26, 1790 passage of the Naturalization Act that excluded Native Americans, Negros and Asians from voting. 18 million rising should show
March 27, 2002 brought passage of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act = McCain-Feingold Act
March 30, 1870 brought the 15th Amendment giving blacks the right to vote
April 9, 1886 was the passage of the Civil Rights Bill granting blacks the rights of citizens
April 11, 1968 President Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act
May 6 was another legislated discrimination effort excluding Chinese from voting rights with the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882
June 4 brought a victory in 1919 for women's suffrage
June 25 was when the Supreme Court invalidated portions of the Voting Rights Act justifying the decision by asserting that we now lived in a post-racial society because the American People elected it's first black President by such overwhelming numbers that the kleptocrats were unable to steal that office without risking massive suspicions of their fraudulent adjustments to vote tallies.
July 18 – Supreme Court accepts the Citizens United case
July 20 marks the anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, which could be celebrated as United We Can Day or AmeriCAN day. This is an ideal day to rally for all those who believe in and fight for a functional government Of, By and For The People that is capable of miraculous achievements. As Neil said, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” and “We came in peace for all”. We can, we must and we will amend the Constitution
Maybe this is a good point to consider what we really need to accomplish, to clarify what the revolution is really about and to look at the math.
If you believe the official sources, Trump won the executive office by votes cast from about 26% of eligible voters and Hillary lost even though she got almost 3 million more votes. If we adjust for election fraud, that figure could be as low as 20%. So, only 20-25% of eligible voters voted for Trump and Republican rule. So forget about those who have been conned by the Cons-ervatives and think about why half the people didn't bother to vote.
Many people don't vote because they think their votes and voices just don't count. Who can blame them? There's a whole bunch of truth in those opinions. Those are the people we need to help make a successful revolution.
We all know that way too many Congresspeople represent industries more than The People. We can vote them out of office, but they've already done their damage and then they can get jobs as lobbyists and make lots more money doing that. Represent.us has produced a couple of good, short and informative videos on the subject. They also have some great infographics that are hard to find. Unfortunately, only about half the states have referendum/initiative liberties.
Move to Amend is another great organization fighting a good fight to amend the Constitution for the better. They work to end the doctrine of corporate personhood fabricated by the judicial branch and to ensure that spending money is never again construed and conflated with the right of free speech.
So let's have a quick review...
1. There is ample evidence of a corrupt electoral system for Americans to have reasonable doubt in the validity of election results and therefore the legitimacy of our government.
2. Lobbying is a legalized system of bribery that must be banned.
3. We must amend the Constitution to;
a. End the doctrine of corporate personhood
b. Ensure that spending money is never construed and conflated with free speech freedoms
So, do you want your vote to be counted?
Do you want your voice to be heard?
Do you want;
a fair and robust economy
equal rights and protections for all people
affordable, accessible healthcare for all?
You're not going to get any of that if you don't first,
-make sure that all of our votes are properly counted and reported
-stop the legalized system of bribery known as lobbying
-amend the Constitution
