I'd be very surprised if America went quietly in the event of suspended elections and other more tangible denials of constitutional rights.

Perhaps you've never been to Ehrenberg. 1300 4x4 owning, shotgun totin', desert rednecks who know every dirt road and backwater just ain't worth as much trouble as they'd cause.

And what do you think "us people" should do. You say we should do something about it but you offer nothing except complaints about the people posting here. So you are here on this site just like us. What are you doing about it? The fact is there is nothing we the people can do about it. And the person who said that it is not the people who voted for bush's fault, I beg to differ. They should have done there homework on the bush clan.They voted for a C.I.A president and halliburton ( cheney) vice president. Here is something for all to read on our friend Cheney.
I believe I agree with the original poster that you have taken umbrage with. It is ok, I guess, to have an emotional ire that really requires no action. It's ok, I guess, to sit safely behind a keyboard and vomit forth vitriole, and pander to fear "And what do you think "us people" should do."
You know the answer... Y0u didn't even pose it as a question. The real question is, "Do you have enough balls to get out and do something other than rhale and whine about the governement"? I suspect, and it feels like you and others who post in the same vein want to be merely remembered for being "correct" and not "corrective". Kind of like Chicken Little.
Whose your senator, your congressman, your mayor, your county, city and state reps? If you feel as you claim to and aren't in constant communication with them, and trying to direct their efforts, then YOU are the problem... Not some lame duck yo-yo like the President. Not even Cheney! But YOU
I think that if the Founding Fathers had taken the same, lame, attitude that you have, that very little would have occurred that made the USA a reality. We'd all still be drinking tea, and eating Welsh Rarebits.
All the poster was saying was, make a decision to take an action and quit mentally masturbating in public. It does no one any good, and can be seen to be a bit pornographic, and just slightly disgusting.

So many people, so many here on this forum are scared. And what are you doing about it? Complaining on this forum and cry out like a baby. Crying out that no one stands up and saves your once so beautiful country. Do you all need a new leader? What about yourself? Why not just stand up now and stop tollerating all that's happening around you. Why not just do it? Right NOW!
Don't just sit there in your 'safe' and comfortable chair behind your screen waiting for someone else to take your hand into a form of resistance. If you just wait and wait and wait...you know what will happen? You'll all perish. And there's only one to blame. You! Yes, that's right. And NO, this is not me lecturing you. This is just my view on all you people that keep complaining and complaining and complaining untill there's no tomorrow.
So, please. Start a sequence of solutions. A revolution if you wish. Just stop the nagging and complaining, please. This makes you all weak and time will tell you. We know about all of this now. Let's DO something now, right NOW!
Let's talk/write about this. Let's just do this. This will make us feel better, stronger and in the end happier and full of live. Like every person in the world should feel like in his life.
God I'm angry at you guys and believe me, I absolutely don't want to be.

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Springfield is still piqued that his hometown wasn’t chosen to host the premiere of the upcoming animated film "The Simpsons," particularly since "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening is an Oregon native.
"Unless they passed a law giving cows the right to vote, this smacks of election fraud," DeFazio writes, tongue planted firmly in cheek. "It also once again highlights the need for electronic voting with a valid paper trail. Was Diebold in any way involved in tabulating the results?..."
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. House today accepted legislation proposed by Rep. Peter DeFazio that would prohibit the Selective Service from conducting a mock draft.
"There's no scenario under which the Pentagon, the White House or this Congress, believes we're going to return to a draft," DeFazio said. "These funds would be wasted with this exercise."
NewsMax wrote: “In (Cigar Aficionado magazine’s) December edition, the former commander of the military’s Central Command warned that if terrorists succeeded in using a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. or one of our allies, it would likely have catastrophic consequences for our cherished republican form of government.”
Their lead-in paragraph was even starker: “Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.”
