Skip to comments.Protests Already Planned for November 3 (regardless of EVs, fraud, turn-out)
Posted on 10/18/2004 4:49:54 PM PDT by mabelkitty
We all remember the votes that were never counted in Florida 2000. So, while we are all working hard for a positive outcome on November 2nd, we also have to be prepared for a repeat of a 2000 stolen election. Below is a pledge for people to sign, supporting efforts to mobilize and protect the vote on November 2nd and making a commitment to protest starting on November 3rd in the case of a fraudulent vote count. By signing this pledge, you will be joining with thousands of others in the November 3rd Urgent Response Network. Please sign the pledge at www.nov3.us and pass it around far and wide.
We are setting up a Fair Elections Advisory Council made up of US and international elections experts who will give us their assessment on election day itself. If they find significant fraud, we will activate the Urgent Response Network on or immediately after November 3rd, calling on people everywhere to engage in protest, including non-violent civil disobedience, in front of their local federal buildings and other appropriate places. We will also be asking those who can to converge in the states where the most serious fraud occurred, as well as in Washington DC.
In addition to signing the pledge, please work with other people and groups in your area to protect the vote on November 2nd and to build the Urgent Response Network. Pick a venue for your local protest in the case that the Urgent Response Network is activated, and list the time and place on the website at www.nov3.us. We also recommend that you set up a place to jointly watch the election results on November 2nd.
Let us commit ourselves to making sure that this time around, the person who occupies the White House is the one who won the election.
November 3rd Pledge of Action:
I remember the stolen presidential election of 2000 and I am willing to take action in 2004 if the election is stolen again. I support efforts to protect the right to vote leading up to and on Election Day, November 2nd. If that right is systematically violated, I pledge to join nationwide protests starting on November 3rd, either in my community, in the state where the fraud occurred or in Washington DC."

I personally look forward to these protests. I can't wait to frost the Leftists around here with a "Bush Won! Stop Whining!" placard.
So, if they lose again they're going to "take it to the streets."
I guess that's all that's left of the Democrat Party.
Does this mean that they intend to protest their own vote fraud? /sarcasm
This is a huge mistake.
Soros apparently thinks he can have it his way and overturn a president by a bloodless coup.
The tenor of this election has affected people very badly and any and all attempts of this nature will end very very badly for the democrat party. It will be the end of it.
I'm sure you have all heard yesterday on Fox News Sunday Eric Holder (former asst attorney general under reno) said if all the votes are counted in this election kerry will win. I suppose with that moronic logic than we shouldn't even hold the election!
Same strategy in California for the recall and election of Arnold. Lawsuits prepared, crowds ready to protest and then blowout. They all went home, unhappy. So too this time around...
We have countries full of Islamofascists wanting to murder us all. We don't have time for this sh*t.
Good. Get them all together in the same place for easy pickins.
To me this is encouraging. It must mean that sKerry's internal polls show that he won't win Florida.
Professional malcontents,,that's the whole lot of 'em!
Maybe we should show up with loads of Kleenex boxes and violins,,,to offer our condolensces.
Any attempt by any number of liberal/communist/leftist yahoos should be met with an EQUAL number of armed citizens (are you listening, NRA members?) who're willing to do WHATEVER it takes to keep that from happening.
And I mean exactly what I said. When Bush wins (!), I dare any group to try to oust him by force, peaceful or otherwise. If the SEcret Service can't protect him, and the Armed Forces can't protect him, WE, the American People WILL!!
Slow your roll,partner.As long as they keep it peaceful,whats the problem?By"rounding them up"etc,you just play into their hands and help them expand their"base"and give their cause legs.
Let 'em protest. While they're screaming and suing, GWB will still be in the White House. They can keep it up for four years if they want to.
Eventually we're gonna need to shoot at these communists in our midst - as long as we all understand where this is all leading....
HOW GEORGE BUSH STOLE ELECTION 2000
"Al, this is David Boies. I apologize for calling so late, but this won't wait."
"Look, I know you've already conceded, but I've been talking to some folks in Florida and they think they can find enough extra votes down there to give you the state in a recount."
I read a couple lib threads today that said that if Bush won by only 3 percent, then they would know it was fraud.
Don't know where they came up with the 3 percent number being the benchmark.
Hopefully, my nom de plume will appear on that list.
I signed the petition as:
President, Americans United Agaist Lies & Deceit.
Perhaps some other freepers may want to have some fun!
"I guess that's all that's left of the Democrat Party."
Kerry has no substance to discuss. His outrageous comments about not revealing his plans until after the election are prejudicially underreported by the MSM.
All they have is anticapatory victimization. Another example "the draft".
Kerry is scaremongering. Bush notes it, MSM gives uncritical airing of Kerry's petulant retorts. It's a losing tactic for Bush. He had no one fully explain the "draft" issue, likewise all the other memes thrown out by the Kerry camp for months. But maybe that's just the "genius" tactic of his top adviser...
"Stay the course!"
