What does the "keep counting votes until I win" Ex-Presidential Candidate care about Democracy? Al Gore tried to steal an election, this should bar him from being an unbiased authority on the subject.

DC Chapter (including me) FReeped Gore on Sunday, November 9, in Washington, D.C. Click here for the After-Action Report.

I started this thread to see if the Volunteer State included any volunteers who want to peacefully protest Gore at one or both of these events.

Note especially that the first speech is November 11, Tuesday of this week.

Al senses blood, and sees his chance to enter the presidential race late in the game.

Could it be that there was less than whelming demand for reservations...???

I wanted to go and ask him why he lost the state where he is lecturing (His home state)

Because Tennessee voted down their own Favorite Son in 2000, the state of democracy is doing quite well there.

Where did Al Bore get this (undeserved) reputation as an "intellectual", whose views on ANYTHING are worth hearing?

I am just baffled- howe many academic programs do you have to flunk out of to be a Democrat intellectual?

I was wondering if anyone will attend this thing? Maybe they can round up some transients, give them a pack of cigarettes to sit through the thing? It worked for Hillary anyway!

i'm certainly not whelmed, myself. I live 30 miles away and wouldn't attend on a dare.

Human nature explains this. It's human nature to believe that someone who agrees with you is quite smart and intellectual.

The liberal media thinks "Gore agrees with us about almost everything. Therefore, he must be smart."

Gore is going to "try" to present his own Age of Liberty speech.

Thanks for your efforts so far. Any luck recruiting volunteers to get in on the fun (see below from this thread)by FReeping Gore tomorrow or later in the month?

Absolutely, count me in! As a recent transplant to TN, I would love to get involved. I've already missed goron at Murfreesboro, but would like to be included in any future events.

Per post #3 above, I'm in the DC area.

Algore is back at Murfreesboro on Nov 25. You'll have a chance to protest him then.

If you want to be involved, ping and/or FReep mail below TN FReepers (includes those listing TN as their locality as of a few days back).

Really all you have to do is publicize, organize minimally, and designate where to meet (or find a TN FReeper who will). Check with police to see if you need a permit. Most likely you won't if you have fewer than a given number (in DC the number is 25 I think, but it is probably higher elsewhere).

I will happily give you more help if you are willing to take the lead. TN FReepers apparently tried to get some interest up for a FReep, but we had late notice and no one had much time before Gore's Nov 11 speech.

Maybe, they and you can coordinate an effort for the Nov 25 Gore speech?

TENNESSEE FREEPERS (LIST TN AS LOCALITY AS OF A FEW DAYS AGO). YOU CAN COPY AND PASTE INTO THE "TO" BLOCK TO PING ALL AT ONCE.

Ping to all FReepers listing Tennessee as their locality.

Volunteers needed to FReep Gore TOMORROW per above!

I'm in the DC area, but hope that some Tennessee FReepers peaceably protest the former vice president, Algore, also famous for inventing the hanging chad.

Could one of you be so kind to post this on the local board and try to get a FReep of the ex-veep?

....Maybe they can round up some transients....

They'll have a hard time finding many at MTSU. May have to bus them in from Nashville.

Not true. We are under the heel of a Democrat tax machine abetted by rampant RINO's. Are you, in reality, Walter Cronkite?
