#ExitPollGate and I'm Feeling Discouraged

Lee Camp is trying to be funny here, but this seems to me to be as serious as cancer.

Here the funny man himself explains.

I've read on twitter, but can't find verification, that the MSM is not planning to report on exit polls for the remaining 3 states. Problem solved! Sad

has had a great series of shows focused on voter fraud. So you're one of the 14% of KY democratic voters that shows up...and then your vote is flipped. No wonder people are discouraged and don't vote!
It's nothing new. Here's a piece from a decade ago:
FRANKFORT --- A former Clay County precinct worker testified Friday that top election officers in the county taught her how to change people's choices on voting machines to steal votes in the May 2006 primary. - See more at: http://caucus99percent.com/comment/86516#comment-86516

It's my favorite line of his, because I love language which brings out visual imagery, especially powerful images. It makes those words indelible.

MLK is just paraphrasing (or maybe translating) Amos 5:24.

I love Amos - he was a pistol:

4. Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

5. Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

6. That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

He also denied that he was a prophet, and described himself as a working man:

Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:

Whoever it was may be proven right yet again.

I am not advocating for it, because the destabilization would be terrible, but at what point do we finally rise up and have an "American Spring"?

FSM knows we are due for it....

Destabilization or slavery? Now there's a choice.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.--Aristotle
If there is no struggle there is no progress.--Frederick Douglass

Personally, I think that the inspiration for that quote may have come from Frederick Douglass in his famous opus on struggle which contains this:

Let me give you a word of the philosophy of reform. The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle. The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all-absorbing, and for the time being, putting all other tumults to silence. It must do this or it does nothing. If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. In the light of these ideas, Negroes will be hunted at the North and held and flogged at the South so long as they submit to those devilish outrages and make no resistance, either moral or physical. Men may not get all they pay for in this world, but they must certainly pay for all they get. If we ever get free from the oppressions and wrongs heaped upon us, we must pay for their removal. We must do this by labor, by suffering, by sacrifice, and if needs be, by our lives and the lives of others.

So many great minds have laid the groundwork for us. It is now our time to ensure that their hard work and sacrifices were not in vain.

Whether one answers the first part of that question — “is violence O.K.” — in the negative or the affirmative, with respect to the second part it’s shocking how far the needle has moved during this election season.

“Having exhausted all peaceful avenues for obtaining the redress of grievances . . .” It would seem we’re now a heckuva lot closer to that condition than we were when this primary season started.

but it seems many think if their new favorite politician doesn't get elected that they have. So really the question indicates a lack of imagination.

than we were when the primary started. What do I mean by this? I mean that during this primary season, we all have been disabused of a lot of notions about the availability of redress through normal R and D electoral politics.

I did not intend to say that we were close to fulfilling the condition, period — i.e. in an absolute sense, which would put us on the verge of violent revolution.

more of a general dig against those who won't think or consider outside of the box as opposed to staying within the establishment systems. In other words, we have a lot of avenues to play if people would open up to them but too many are stuck inside their boxes. Those avenues will dry up much more quickly making violence come sooner than it should.

no exit polling beginning with KY and OR through the remaining primaries. Thus enabling the corrupt establishment to more easily complete the coup d' tat of the democratic process.
