Massive US non-violent Protest - NOTA
I thought against voting this year - what's the use, both sides suck. The lesser of 2 evils - STINKS
I've changed my mind

Are you ready for the biggest, most effective nonviolent protest ever against the DC conmen
what a difference we could make it enough peeps would participate (majority agrees that all the candidates are undesirable, if they could just lose the conditioning of having to vote this, that, or the least evil guaranteed loser 3rd party candidate)


vote - “NONE OF THE ABOVE” across the board for election 2008

If “NONE OF THE ABOVE” gets a majority of votes over any of the candidates listed, then “NONE OF THE ABOVE” wins. And that means none of those candidates will win the office. The election will have to be held again and new candidates will have to try to win the public's support.

The political parties would be forced to provide candidates the people want !
Incumbents would have to answer for their actions in office !
Labor unions and international corporations would be broken !

even if the majority did it and then they said it wasn't binding, doesn't matter - it would still send a big message that the ants are very displeased and very large in number

Helping give “NONE OF THE ABOVE” a permanent, legally binding spot on the ballot

This solution fails to address one thing that too many overlook. With the wonderful new electronic voting machines, all of the "NOTA" votes get changed to whomever TPTB have decided will "win".

The best solution is to let hackers go do their stuff and have 1% of the vote go to Obama, 1% to McCain and 98% go to V.

hmm, sounds like a write-in:P

if there is a plan for such action - fine by me
V would sent the same message, yet intimidate them more


I would just like to see a change that was motivated by the people as opposed to the change that will be provided to us by the system.

I want us to work at dismantling the system as opposed to the system going through a metamorphosis to some other fowl thing.
be it V or NOTA

Absolutely, I want a change to the system as well. From our viewpoint, it is broken. From their view, it is serving it's function perfectly. It has been perverted from being a system for the people to serving those on top and in positions of influence in the system. I have tremendous doubt about attempting to effect change to the system by using the tools of the system itself. It's akin to gambling in a casino with house rules made to benefit the house as well as using a stacked deck in favor of the house. Any wins we get are minimal and only designed to keep us playing the game thinking we can win...but we can't.
Not by their rules.
Not with a stacked deck.
We have to change one or both to gain any ground. If we play by the house rules and with the stacked deck we are limited to choices they give us. None of the choices that we need to make are available in the constructed paradigm. We have to make a major change before we have choices that are actual change instead of allowed choice.

We have to step outside of the system...outside of the matrix... before we see any real choices.
