How many stolen elections would it take?

How important of an issue is this to you?

Are you willing to take this to the next level?

If another election is stolen, what would you do?

How many people have died because a tyrant is allowed to thwart democracy and steal two elections?

How many more will die until democracy is restored?


Listening to Mike Malloy on the radio tonight, he was talking about the detainees in Guantanamo, who are in a hunger strike, and being force fed with tubes to keep them alive.

For some reason, the hunger strike stuck in my mind.

If another election is stolen, how much more angry would you be, than you already are? Do you think you'd be willing to take it to the next level and do something like, say, a hunger strike?

I'm just thinking in a stream of consciousness on this, so don't take me too seriously. But could you imagine if 100 people or so got together at some place significant to the founding of democracy, set up a tent camp, and started a hunger strike until our elections are made secure and verified? Think of the attention it would get. The media could not ignore it. Think how many people would learn about the issue.

Just a late night passing thought in the mind of the solar bus guy... ... or not?
