History channel...about the French resistance...what irony!
I think it is really appropriate tha they are showing this right now, as the tactics and numbers that they are talking about are very applicable to what is currently going on in Iraq. anyone else think so?

3. At the beginning, after they talked about Petain and the Vichy...
government, they spoke about DeGaulle and the broadcasts from London. At the outset, only about one out of a hundred French citizens supported the notion of the resistance. Sound familiar?

9. We could learn something from the Fr resistance. read in:
They got mad, and actually fought for years. I'm seeing a "waning" in resolve among many here already regarding Evoting fraud. Get it.. WE are now unjustly conquored and occupied!

11. Yep; it's pretty pathetic. Nobody cares whether we actually
have legitimate elections in this country.

10. I think we need some resistance right here at home.
Especially if we don't have some fair and legitimate elections by 2006.

12. By 2006 it will be too late:
100% Evoting + no paper trail + no exit polls = Bye Bye Democracy!
