open letter to March 20th activists
11 Mar 2004
good luck out there.
If you had voted for Kucinich the march would be a celebration.

My opinion is that I can not vote for Kerry.

Also, I don't think it really matters if you vote Kerry or Bush or Nader or Nolan or whoever .. or if you don't vote at all.

This is the opinion of someone who worked himself into severe financial & physical hardship for the cause of a Dennis Kucinich Presidency. Someone who is completly politically aware of the importance of this election and someone who is fully aware of what a horrible place the US will be after 4 more years.. of either of them.

Bush & Kerry are playing good cop bad cop with the world. The are both Skull & Bones members. They are both liars. They are both completly UNrepresentitive of the American people. They are both fascists, war criminals and corporate whores.


During the last couple of weeks before the election one of the 2 Bonesmen will say something very stupid. The other Bonesmen will win. Just as they've planned it. With out rigging a single voting machine.

This is a best case scenario for them. Many people are playing close attention to the validity of the voting process this election. That won't be a problem now. Many people were worried about the new provisions that allow for martial law and suspension of the voting process completly if the country were to be "attacked" again. That won't be a problem now. Now that we have only the illusion of Democracy... voting for either is truly a wasted vote; good for nothing more than soothing the concious of the willingly oppressed.

The election is over, the rest is just for show. The people, deciding to forgo freedom, have lost once again to the corporations that we have allowed to steal our rights, our power, our resources...

The election is over.

What I would like to say to the millions that will rally on March 20th to bring our troops home and end the occupation ... Where the hell were you when it was time to VOTE for that? If you didn't vote for Kucinich you have no right to march on the 20th for you will not stand up for your own convictions when given the opportunity. Who cares what such a person thinks. Why should "Washington" care what these people think; they will not vote for their convictions anyway. This march will have no effect because the time to march was on primary day... on caucus day... the time to march was when it would accomplish putting a president in the white house that would actually stop the occupation.

What I would like to say to the millions of people who are now unemployed or uninsured and are now looking to the skull & bones member of their choice to fix these problems... Where the hell were you when it was time to vote for these things? If you didn't vote for Kucinich you have no right to whine about your poverty striken disease riddle shell. Nobody, in Washington, cares about people who's sole act of democratic participation is whining.

What I would like to say to those whose city, county or state representitives have voted that the Patriot Act is unconstitutional... Where the hell were you when it was time to vote for the only candidate who agreed with you? You've done nothing to protect your rights and therefore deserve none. Who can waste their time with such people who bitch & moan but refuse to help themselves?

Last night I watch "The Passion" (the Mel Gibson Christ movie). I went because I though it would make me feel good about my life to watch Jesus get the shit kicked out of him for 2 hours. I was right. More importantly, I was awed by the fact that the bulk of the people just stood around watching, making a big show of their grief, letting it happen, taking no intervening action, feeling powerless to stop the otrocity. When the evil folks who wanted Jesus tortured and crucified chanted and marched and refused to take "just" torture for an answer... the followers of Jesus said nothing, crying in the background like deer in headlights. They didn't VOTE.

So when you hit the streets on March 20th to end the occupation; if you didn't vote for for Kucinich I'll thank you for your presence and hope that you are between me harmsway. I would make no sacrifice for those who would stand by and DO nothing. Because I'm not Jesus, I'm your brother and you who refuse to vote for your convictions have failed your family.

Re: open letter to March 20th activists

I just want to send a solidaritymessage from the swedish revolutionary and autonomy movement, or at least from ME.
Keep on fighting the war, we will!

Those are pretty tough words directed to antiwar activists and demonstrators. I do not know anything about Kucinich, but if he/she is against the war in Iraq I think it would be a good strategy to vote for him/her, even if it just (probably) meant showing your miscontent with american foreign policies. To act against the american imperialism or whatever one would want to call it is a great way for you to send a message to us in Europe and the rest of the world. We are very aware of what the United States is doing in the rest of the world and it is primarily that we are fighting against.

Either way, i would like to express my full solidarity and respect for everyone of you that are active in whatever way!

This isn't about Kucinich. Or about Kerry. It's about Bush's lies, overt and covert activities, Corporations, Environment, Equality... and other serious problems that face all of us!
THAT'S why I'll be there!
