Stopping The Perfect Storm: A Pamphlet For The 2nd American Revolution
"The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy. We should have a revolution in this county!" - Donald Trump 11/6/12
Since America's inception in 1776 after declaring independence from England, our country has experienced several cataclysms in Her lifetime. Born of revolution amidst slavery only later to be torn apart by civil war because of slavery, our lady democracy has always endured. She has been invaded once, attacked twice- once on each coast- and suffered four presidential assassinations. She has had many wars abroad and within her borders. From the Trail of Tears to Jim Crow, from economic and cultural upheavals that ebb and flow within each generation of our citizenry, America has had many high and low points in Her last 240 years.
Yet America has never witnessed what began as an existential crisis in 2015 and metastasized into a clear and present danger in 2016- that is the presidential campaign and "electoral college victory" of the temperamentally unfit provocateur of hate and racial division, Donald Trump.
2016 is a moment in American history that is as critical, if not more critical then the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, when the world was on the brink of total nuclear annihilation. With Trump in the White House for the next four years, we are closer to that apocalyptic scenario then ever before.
Trump's accession to the oval office is the second time in sixteen years that the presidential candidate who lost the vote (only in American presidential elections is the term "popular vote" used-) was sworn in as President of the United States on inauguration day.
The last presidential race that occurred was in 2000 between George W. Bush and Al Gore. A week before that election took place an anonymous "Bush aide"- Karl Rove-told New York Daily News columnist Michael Kramer that they were "planning for...the unthinkable" in the event that Bush won the vote, but lost the electoral college tally.
"The one thing we don't do is roll over. We fight," Rove said.
The article went on to explain how that fight would ensue:
"The core of the emerging Bush strategy assumes a popular uprising, stoked by the Bushies themselves, of course. In league with the campaign - which is preparing talking points about the Electoral College's essential unfairness - a massive talk-radio operation would be encouraged. "We'd have ads, too," says a Bush aide, "and I think you can count on the media to fuel the thing big-time. Even papers that supported Gore might turn against him because the will of the people will have been thwarted.
Local business leaders will be urged to lobby their customers, the clergy will be asked to speak up for the popular will and Team Bush will enlist as many Democrats as possible to scream as loud as they can. "
Scream as loud as they can.
Fast forward to 2016, all 60,467,601 Americans who voted for Hillary Clinton need to scream as load as they can. Business leaders and the clergy need to also speak out.
The media needs to cut out the usual political yap that got us where we all are and "fuel the thing big-time." They need to stop spinning what Hillary Clinton did "wrong" by winning the majority of votes in this election and focus on what is currently happening in the streets nation wide and what can be done to prevent Trump from being sworn in as president.
The only way that can be achieved is twofold. The first is mount a massive street uprising nation wide. Like with the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street in 2011, pressure needs to be applied in order for the 538 electors- our 435 representatives in the House and 100 Senators who actually vote for the next president on " the first Monday after the second Wednesday of December" - December 19, 2016.
Between now and 12/19/16, the American people need to rise up like never before. Like the protests Egypt, our 538 electors need to recognize that the United States will be totally ungovernable with Trump in the White House. Sabotage, vandalism, roadblocks are certainly all in that equation. All the electors have office numbers in DC and their districts/states can be called and marched in front of.
But unlike in Egypt, we are not trying to topple a tyrant already power, we are trying to prevent one from grabbing power.
The citizens of the entire world also need to march in the streets and collectively organize American boycotts -just like in North Carolina- of all our exported goods. Refuse to buy any American products, cancel and refuse to make any more travel plans to the U.S. The entire world population is at risk under a President Trump, so everyone needs to get in formation.
The 538 American electors who will meet on 12/19/16 need to hear the will of the people loud and clear before that vote. They need to be reminded why they are there, and not to just robotically rubber stamp Trump.
The entire electoral college system was designed by founding father Alexander Hamilton - in his own words- to make sure “the office of president will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.”
Donald Trump is clearly not "endowed with the requisite qualifications" Hamilton warned us of. Using that as metric, the electoral college needs to vote down Trump on 12/19/16. If Trump is not unqualified to be Commander in Chief just exactly who is?
Nobody knows better just how unqualified Trump is than then America's top Military brass and the intelligence community, who heard Trump repeatedly ask why America can't use its nuclear weapons.
"If we have them, why can't we use them?" Trump asked three times.
That along with the fact that Trump, according to recent reports, has a secret alliance with Russian President Vladimir Putin, commutating with him through handlers throughout the 2016 campaign. Beside the fact that is the textbook definition of treason, the alliance itself is beyond problematic since Putin is also considered a danger to America.
After meeting with Obama and received his first "full presidential" briefing, Trump indicated he would like meet with Putin in Russia before being sworn in office this January. In other words Trump wants meet with Putin in private after just being told who our spy is in Putin's inner circle.
Our military is supposed to defend America from both foreign and domestic enemies. If they do not see Trump as an enemy of the state, it begs the question, just how well are they defending America?
I beseech our great military and the intelligence community- on behalf of the people of the United States and the world- to join us in our movement, our revolution to stop Trump from being sworn in as president on 1/20/17.
Thomas Jefferson hoped that the American people would have a revolution every generation. After 240 years, it is safe to say, we are long overdue.
Don't let the corporate TV people brainwash you into "acceptance," as they have been droning on about since 11/9 (9/11 in reverse). This is not a "protest," it is a revolution!
After all, it was Trump himself that tweeted on November 6, 2012 that "the electoral college is a disaster for a democracy. We should march on Washington and fight like hell. We should have a revolution in this county!"
It It is time, as Karl Rove said in 2000, "we fight" the Second American Revolution! Not to dismantle America, but to preserve and protect Her.
