Election Night. .... bush wins: What DO you DO?
just idle conjecture, worst case scenario stuff.

and i'm trying to keep a positive stance in my head.

i already know what i'll do if KERRY wins, i'll have a small dignified celebration, not an all out hootenanny, cause i know it'll take decades to repair bush's shitstorm.

but what will our reaction be if the assholes steal it again?

what WILL we do?

6. Wait and see where revolutionary cells are meeting up.
- After I am convinced an election was manipulated in this country, I will join the resistance and fight to restore democracy.
- If I am convinced that W actually won the election, I will leave the nation of morans and move overseas.

13. First, cry
Then arrange to make our residency in Holland permanent, and then get my 22-year-old son out of Florida and back to Europe. He's not going to be cannon fodder for that rat bastard. (can I say that? I guess if this goes away, I'll know I can't)

41. You Will Also Want Something...
Edited on Tue May-25-04 04:04 PM by jayfish
with a little more range to it. Maybe a 30.06, Mini-14, maybe even an AR-15 (all with scopes). That would round out your kit quite nicely. Long range, point defense and personal protection.

11. Nothing...
I will be like the proverbial Red Sox or Cubs fan and simply wait till next time around. The country and life goes on. My life doesnt hinge on the election of a single candidate.

Those "Alec Baldwins" who say things about leaving the country if their candidate loses really need to wake up and get a life.

If I was a better person I'd immolate myself in front of the WH, but I'm a coward.

Most probably, sell my house and move to a very big city and get lost there.

30. To all of you contemplating leaving the country, I know
it's in jest, but aren't you doing exactly what the likes of Ann 'The Man's Man' Coulter wants you to do. They want to rid the country of liberals.

Here's what I'd do. I'll try to get some more of my relatives into this country if they promise that they would vote Democrat in the next cycle. We need more of us, not less.

38. All of you who think you'll
go to Canada, you'd better check it out now and see if you actually qualify to emigrate there. They're quite picky about who they'll let in.

I want both of my draft age sons out of the country in November, and they think I'm just a complete nut-case.

If Bush and his cabal stay in power, they'll probably close the borders immediately and not allow anyone of draft age to leave. The rest of us might be able to go, but we probably won't be able to bring any significant assets with us. So maybe now is a good idea to open a Swiss bank account.

And the truth is, as several others have already pointed out, that even if Kerry is elected, things won't turn around very quickly. We're in very deep in Iraq. The tax cuts are destroying the economy. Jobs are still going to go overseas. It's going to be a long time before things are very good again.

46. Get ready for the draft...
- Prepare for the draft. Iran and Syria are next, folks.

- Get a head start on the Administration by reading the book "1984".

- Have a funeral for my country in the back yard.

- Begin praying that there will be no martial law in 2008.

- I might take up porn...I heard it makes you go blind. I can't stand to see what I'm seeing now.

52. EVERYONE PLEASE READ!
Anyone talking about stockpiling weapons or forming an armed resistance, please stop. Anybody can read what you post. If Ashcroft gets a warrant to seize DU's member information under the Patriot Act, you will be in the pen before you can mix your first Molotov cocktail. Even if your posts are sarcastic, let me tell you the Feds don't have a good sense of humor when it comes to jokes about violent overthrow of the government.

I'm not trying to tell anyone what they can or should discuss, but I think an internet message board that can be viewed by anyone is the last place to discuss shit like that. For those of you who have already posted, I would strongly suggest self-deletion.

59. They'll throw us in Gitmo for advocating non-violent resistance too.
Or any other "re-education camp" which will most certainly crop up if Bush steals the election again. They don't even have to hand down an indictment. Just ask Maher Arar.

I'm sure Agent Mike was compiling a list of potentials threats to the second Bush theft long before this thread was started. He may even still be around to collect more names. My advice to anyone talking about any kind of resistance armed or unarmed: HIDE! In the wake of BushTheft II, DemocraticUnderground may have to be truly underground.

But that's not going to happen because we are going to kick some Republican ass this year! :bounce: :party:

In reality, my brother is planning an election night party. We plan on taking a drink for every state Kerry wins. Either we will be happy drunks with a Kerry win :party:or depressed/angry :grr:(see prozac post above) drunks with a Bush win.

If bush wins it would have to be a rigged election and lots of americans will be up in arms, lots of people will be in the streets raising hell and some will die. It will be close to a civil war if he doesn't step down.
