What Kind Of Direct Action?

Postby heyjt » Thu Nov 02, 2006 3:11 pm

Yesterday on Air America Rachel Maddow suggested it may be necessary to call out for some kind of direct action if Chaos insues due to obvious Republican vote-tampering during next weeks election.<br> I live in a very rural area and our State votes by mail anyway, so there are no polling places to organize or protest at.<br> What I do have control over however, is my bank account. If things go real, real bad for some reason; obvious vote theft, worse case scenario martial law... What if the people simply go to their banks and pull out as much money as they can, leaving a few bucks to keep the account open (or not).<br> Would a run on the banks send a clear message as a unified national protest? <p></p><i></i>

Well, I've done the latter for several years, and the former wouldn't cause me any hardship either. Sign me up! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/glasses.gif ALT="8)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>
