    is posturing, and not the kind we need to adopt.  Standing up for ourselves and not taking bullying is what we need to do.

    Cowering under the bed just because of a small plane crash in 2004 is not reasonable, it's cowardice.

    If fear is your message, then the rest of us who are used to doing what we need to do in spite of fear will reject your caution as cowardice and continue to assert our rights.

    •  Not what I said (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't say to give up, I said to watch your back if your documenting evidence of election fraud, and don't get cocky and think that strutting around like some bad motherfucker is going to keep you safe.  If that scares you so much you want to turn tail and run, that's your problem.  

      I think successfuly combating election fraud will take legal and police action.  Legislation is needed to ensure proper oversight, but that starts at the grass roots level, and it may be cell phone videos that give the needed spark.  In any case, BE CAREFUL.  If a group is serious enough to steal a national election, they won't think twice about putting some witness in the hospital, or worse.

      •  strutting around isn't what does it. (0+ / 0-)

        Having the legal backup (Election Protection lawyers with staff & volunteers) is what does it.  

        Carrying two cellphones, one in your pocket with the camera aimed outward, and one in your hand, helps.

        Working in pairs, helps a hell of a lot.  One to have the conversation, one to serve as a witness.  

        Practicing and rehearsing until you can do it in your sleep helps a hell of a lot too.  Think "New England Quaker activist nonviolence training."  That's how the Quaker-led protests always stayed peaceful: they practiced and rehearsed and role-played.  

        And having all of this replicated coast-to-coast so it stands unified and strong is best of all.  Strength in numbers.  

        We're smarter than the badguys.  Ultimately we're stronger.  All we have to do is put that strength to use and we're unbeatable.    

        "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
