We need a Plan to retake America
We can not quit.

We need to take one of our enemies down, by boycott I mean. I think we should boycott Sinclair Broadcasting to the point of bankruptcy.

But, this is only the beginning of the Plan.

I support the idea of a DU Think Tank and would try to help in any way I can. What we need is an Umbrella Group composed of more than just DU.

We also can not trust all Federal and Wealthy Democrats. Are there some that are OK? Yes, there are. But, we run the risk of many Zell Millers if we continue to support these kinds of Democrats.

The End Result of all of this planning would be a True Grand Coalition. I think we should center on local and sometimes state level positions in the government. It would resemble a secular and non-evil form of the Christian Coalition. My suggested name, the People's Coalition.

2. Yes, I believe in boycotts especially for Sinclair but we to do more
now. Jesse J. and David Cobb are creating a coalition and we need to support these man since they were the only ones who have been there for us. In greater numbers we can continue these men's work until this country is ours once again. We on the left are the better half.

4. Great ideas. It has to be done or democracy as we have known
it is dead. A think tank needs the powerful and the grassroots working together; local and statewide is a must. We can get attention in the MSM if we take down some big names. I say that we start with Deibold (and their ilk) and Sinclair and Fox. We need a board; we need endless grassroots action and publicity; we need a workable plan; we need to spread the word far and wide via the internet. Some EU and some Asian countries are already boycotting US products; we can spread that word too. GE, Disney, insurance scalpers, drug cos., energy cos., oil cos., all the etcs. who feed the Bushites can be brought down if we are assiduous. Let's band together and begin today. Several organizations such as America Coming Together are already organized; let's start by hooking up with them.
