The Ballot, The Bullet, and the Grand Refusal

Revolution Will Be Webcast!"
(with input from Lori Price, CLG General Manager, and several CLG Readers)
Now hear this: Any sign that the election has been stolen again, and we are calling for a complete walkout, civil disobedience, complete refusal and the shutting down of the system, per the Grand Refusal (click here for part 1, or below this essay).
What are the TRIGGERS, what "election" events will trigger the Grand Refusal? The following list is by no means exhaustive. The Bush regime may very well alter their approach to stealing the election this time. But, this is a list that will guide us.
If any of these events occur in great number or even if one occurs to a significant, result-altering effect, we are calling for a complete WALKOUT! That means, do not go to work, do not shop beyond what you need to survive (food, beverages, medicine, etc.), do not pay credit card bills, do not participate in consumer events or sporting events, avoid all mass media and stay tuned to the WEB to stay posted for sites for mass demonstrations during the Grand Refusal. The Revolution will NOT be TELEVISED, the Revolution will be WEBCAST! If the web goes down, report to city hall in whatever city or town you reside! Until then, watch the web, the webring of revolution sites, for news and tactical issues. This webring is under construction, but will be in place for the "election." The CLG will be a revolutionary ringleader!
If the following or similar events take place and the election is stolen because of it, the Revolution, the Grand Refusal, must take place. If we do not do it, they have nothing to fear from us, ever again. Our rights will be gone. This is a very pivotal situation for our system of Government. One more coup and we are done for!
1) Reports of significant amounts voters in key precincts and states having been purged unduly from the voting rolls.
2) Reports of voter intimidation, poll closures, changed or moving polling places.
3) Reports of 'butterfly-ballot-like' spoilage of votes.
4) Reports of over-vote spoilage (as in Florida's mostly Democratic counties in 2000).
5) Evidence or signs of Diebold or other vote-counting machine manipulation, tampering, fixing, etc.
6) Serious discrepancies between pre-election and/or exit polling and "election" results favoring Bush.
7) Disruptions in voting due to brownouts or blackouts in key Democratic areas relying on electronic voting technology.
8) Sudden turnarounds in results in favor of the Dictator (such as took place for Florida in 2000 when Bush's cousin John Ellis at Faux reversed networks' consensus and overturned their predictions).
9) Reports and evidence of "bourgeois riots" or other means of intimidation to disrupt voting, or vote counting (as in Miami Dade in 2000).
10) "Terrorist" warnings and threat level increases in key races to either prevent voters from voting or to reduce turnout (a formula for Republican "victory) as warnings by Ridge and other administration officials presage.
11) Bioterrorism threats or attacks (the forced vaccines are not approved by FDA and behoove drug companies tied to Republicans--likewise, the threats or attacks will be in all probability manufactured with the intent to instill fear and support of status quo Republican 'war on [of] terror').
12) Judicial interventions to stop vote counting, stop voting, stop the real results from being registered, tabulated or COUNTED (as in the Supreme Court decision of 2000).
13) Cancellation or "postponement" of the election (in general or in part).
14) Aviary, bovine, swine or any other mysterious flu epidemics that *happen* to appear (created by the now-dead 18 microbiologists?) as a *pretext* for the Bush dictatorship to restrict public gatherings and travel, close schools (voting booths), and implement quarantines --in order to suppress voter turnout. --Aug. 25, 2004 update, based on Associated Press article.
Any one or a combination of these and other events--resulting in a stolen, "postponed" or canceled election--will trigger the Revolution. By Revolution, we do not mean violence. We mean a TURNING OVER, a complete turning of the tables, a turnabout in terms of control. We go from ruled to rulers. We can show them how much they need us. Without us, they are nothing. "There is no king saved by the multitude of an host" (Psalms). The Real Revolution was against the people and the Constitution and took place in 2000 and continues to this day. The next Revolution must be a countercoup, and a recapturing, or a capturing for the first time, of our rights. How long will we stay out? As long as it takes to have a real election!!! or longer if we can and such a continued refusal brings even greater results...
All 9-11 activists please take note!!! All crimes of the former regime will be investigated upon gaining control of the state. Bush will be investigated and most likely tried for high crimes, including mass murders in the US and Iraq.
Stay tuned for more details and ideas. Most people who read this idea are for it. It is nonviolent, it is activist, it is workable. It worked in India for Gandhi and his followers, and it can work here. We have no other choice. Remember, as Bush himself said, "Fool me once, shame on...shame on me. Fool me...Won't Get Fooled again!"

If you missed Part One of 'The Grand Refusal,' here it is again:
"Counterterrorism officials" are talking of "postponing"
the upcoming elections. Postponing the November elections, they say, might
be necessary if there is a terrorist attack at election time. The option
is being denied by Rice and other Bush administration officials, but Homeland
Security Secretary Tom Ridge warned last week that Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda
network may attack within the USA to try to disrupt the elections.
Regardless, a postponed election, or the playing the fear factor for
low voter turnout, are acts of terrorism in themselves. We are already
being attacked. This warning is yet another in a series of attacks on
our rights, on our democratic system, on our freedom, and on our self-determination.
In 1964, Malcolm X posed the question to the government: 'The
Ballot or the Bullet."' Without representation, Malcolm roared,
rather than "I have a dream," the racist, antidemocratic government
might expect to hear instead, "I have a rifle!" Today, we might
make the same clarion call to arms.
But in any case, the claims to protect us will be betrayed by their brutality
against us, and the wealth is all theirs in the end. We refuse to hear
them and heed the call to abjure our rights. All who have courage will
stand up, walk out, and refuse to listen to them, refuse their media,
refuse their consolation prizes, refuse their guilt, refuse their lies,
refuse their tyranny, and refuse their fake government!
