Should we revolt against our gov that ignores us?
Look at CAFTA for example. I watched a callin show on CSpan this morning and it was unanimous against this trade deal I mean Ive never seen both sides agree so strongly against an issue. An then we hear the vote is Congress is CLOSE??? They ignore us. Just totally blow us off. This has gone too far. It really has.

Im all for revolting against these people in Washington. Do a Boston Tea Party type revolt. I know the Tea Party was about taxation but Im just talking about the style of the revolt. Something that shows were dead serious about the direction theyre taking us .

2. The majority of our citizens was against CAFTA
They are against the immigration policies. They think we are headed in the wrong direction.

It might be the time to show up with weapons, legal and with proper permits, to give them the general idea.

NRA is with the Bush government but they would have to stand up with our right to bear arms. I don't fear foreign terrorists, I fear our government.

7. Idea here
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 05:17 AM by Ksec
How about we do a two day strike were nobody shows up to work. Just shut this fkin country down. Imagine the millions in losses the corporations would suffer, imagine how the infrastructure would be shut down. Nothing being shipped, sold, stacked, driven, flew, manufactured, cooked, computed, eaten, painted, welded, counted or any other job one can think of. How that would change things . The gov would be scared shitless and beg to do what we ask of them.

THEY may have the money but we have the power . Our numbers are our power.
