Let’s Fight Election Fraud

Democracy-Dying-By-A-Thousand-Cuts-x600

Remember hearing about a dubious election fraud in recent news? A very hard to believe tale used to justify a murderous coup? Yes, this was done to another country (Bolivia; recent weekend posts here tell a lot about it). What about our own “democracy” here in the U.S., though? Are we safe from election fraud?

What if we, yes us the people, rather than the rich establishment got to decide who gets on our ballots? What if we wrote in our desirable candidates on our ballots (in places where this permitted)? What if millions of us were NOT kicked off the voter rolls or hindered from voting by other tricks?

Well, once all those hurdles were overcome (if it’s possible at all), there would still be the issue of the vote count that Stalin told us is what really matters. Because if you control the vote count, you – not the voters – control the official results. So, are the election results we are told trustworthy? I say no. Our vote count is probably the most ridiculous in the world. I am not kidding. Keep reading.  Continue reading “Let’s Fight Election Fraud”

Bernie’s proposal: To pick up where FDR left off and reach shared prosperity, social equality, and true freedom for all.   Continue reading “Political Awakening Video Weekend 2019-06-16 (20 videos)”

Watching Out for Progressives Getting Co-Opted

This has happened many times before in American History. The people who previously wanted to progress away from cruel, evil system setups were too unaware of the appeasement and co-opting tactics coming for them from the ruling establishment to stop them in their tracks. So, the following conversation should not be mistaken for an anti-Bernie or anti-AOC clip, but rather as the kind of alertness we all must adopt, Bernie, AOC, you, and me.

Elected figures like Bernie and AOC walk a tightrope in the sell-out party they have been running in, not daring to run outside it because the artificial barriers against independents are so criminally high. I understand why they sometimes believe they must make compromises with the ruling ‘elites’ or adopt a staying-silent strategy on serious issues; but we – the people – are NOT walking this tightrope, and we must make sure not to be lured into spoiled mentalities or bad compromises out of blind loyalty, because once we shift into those gray zones, our champions must shift there, too, or even deeper into them, in order to not loose their footing. We must distinguish between their political survival tactics and our political needs. We must stick firmly to our goals, so that at one point or another, our champions in politics can do the same. So, here is that wakeful conversation that raises alertness but lacks the add-on I just added:

(Note: If the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for Graham Elwood and the title: “Will Bernie & AOC Sellout Progressives? — The Political Vigilante”)

Let there be no doubt: Bernie has won a special place in my heart he is unlikely to ever lose, even when I think he makes a wrong strategic choice (as, for example, I did when he endorsed $Hillary instead of forming a people’s party like Abraham Lincoln did in a similar situation; or when he failed to expose the DNC’s rigging of the 2016 primaries; and when he fell in with the Russiahhhgate BS in order to cuddle up with a zombie-like dumb-witted half of the “D”-party base and to delay being lynched by the corporate media). I’d also want him to speak out for Julian Assange, a free press, and free speech for all, and speak out more readily against regime change attempts and similar global U.S. terrorism. I also see Bernie and AOC as being only partly along the way of “socialism” and especially AOC needing to learn more in that field. I can understand her tightrope walk, as well. I still like her a lot despite this and that shortcoming, hoping she will keep growing in the correct direction. I do keep alert to when people like her and Bernie make mistakes or are drifting towards or even over the line that divides fighting for justice and liberty for all from working for the status quo. We, the people, must grow smarter, more alert, and more demanding as time goes by. Our nation was ruined when entire generations of Americans went to sleep. I can hear some of our nation’s founders spinning in their graves.

I know, the video shared above is not easy to stomach for some of us. We don’t want our political champions to be hurt with possibly inappropriate attacks on their street cred. The point I am trying to make here is different: not to claim that Bernie and AOC have sold out or are going to do so. Nor to debate what mistakes they have ever made. (We all make mistakes. It’s human.) Rather, my point is that we, the people, must stand firm on our position so that our champions can build their fortresses there rather than having to let themselves be pulled further and further away by the establishment forces who have developed great expertise in doing this over the centuries. We must stay on the alert and call back our champions when they range too far. We, you, I, and millions of fellow Americans, play a much bigger role than we usually realize. Bernie has been trying to make us understand this. It’s time we do.

P.S.: By the way, if this video gave you some willies, the coming Video Weekend will rather please you with some remarkably nifty videos coming up. Keep your eyes peeled. 😉
