With dozens of underground websites recruiting our participation in boycotts against every malign corporation from Coca-cola to Microsoft, what could be more counter-intuitive than undermining a company by buying its products? It could work if its done right.

Republican reFRAMES Importance of ALL Citizens Defending The Vote=Democracy
15 Dec 2004
Brilliant essay from understanding Computer expert whose honest
assesment and 'framing' of the Arguments for the 'Franchise', the
Sanctity of the Vote, protection of the 'Ultimate Commons', the
Equal Right to Vote, a concern for the integrity of a 'survey' that
respects the will of the American Voter. Voting trust is the most
basic, parlimentary way to petition OUR government for a 'redress
of grievances' This writer states: "Since the only thing that holds
our Representatives accountable to
us is the power of our votes, if that disappears, so does their
accountability.The incredible power of our American nation
is contained solely within the American people’s votes, and by not
returning that power to us they are able to quite literally Rule
the World." Though he says Democrats, vote protectors and fraud
pursuers are missing the oppurtunity to build broad non-partisan
support, because, "You are missing the point
when you describe the problem as “Bush stole the election from
Kerry”, and Republicans are simply not going to get on board with
that.” He cares about the pure essence of Representative
Democracy,a security expert who is concerned about the voting
infrastructure controlled by machines that "have been designed
SPECIFICALLY to allow fraud then prevent it!" Republicans have been
timid & blind so far because, "The reason that we Republicans
haven’t seen it stems from the fact
that it is not as obvious to us Republicans as it is the Democrats,
since the pendulum of power moved in the way we wanted it to.
We’re less likely to see the problem, since we tried to push the
pendulum to the right, and the pendulum dutifully moved to the
right. What we’re missing is the fact that maybe WE didn’t move it
any more than a surfer moves the wave he rides in on by pointing
his board towards the beach." I agree, THE NATION, THE FRANCHISE
WOULD BE BETTER SERVED AND SAVED BY FRAMING THE DILEMNA AS SO: "
The problem is not that John Kerry lost the election. That is
just a SYMPTOM of the real problem, which is that the electorate
may not be under the control of the American people. We need to
re-frame this debate under different terms that EVERY American can
understand and support.There appears that there was definitely a
grab for power, but it
was not the Republicans stealing power from the Democrats. If it
happened, then a small group of Republicans stole the power from
the American People as a whole." ALERT: "The great unknown right
now is whether we still have enough
power left to get it back,Ask yourself if we can ever come together
and really make the
world a better place if we keep following the path that we're on."
VOTING is the barometer of The Peoples, goals, aspirations, Dreams,
the path We SEEK!
STEAL Our Vote? STEAL OUR Future!
