extremely tempting, for those of us trying to
thwart the downfall of our democracy, to see some
serious rays of hope right now. But for me the
harsh reality of who and what we're dealing with
tends to cloud that hope.
Bush/Cheney and the GOP are floundering a bit,
and the Kerry/Edwards ticket looks promising,
but none of this is going to matter unless the
average American citizen develops more nerve and
a better sense of discernment prior to the highly
anticipated "2004 October Surprise Terror Attack".
everything I've been reading from those trying
to anticipate what might happen revolves around
hypothesis. But I have a unique suspicion of my
own about the way it might go down.
heard it here first:
over and over and over that the terrorists are
going to try to disrupt the election, ala Madrid.
over and over and over that al Qaeda is desperate
to get Bush out of office, because 'he's so
tough on them' (I've already heard this stated
by dozens GOP/Administration/corporate-media-hack
the American people to automatically accept
as "true" the increasingly frequent tapes/video
coming out of the terrorist network/web sites
- i.e. hostage taking/negotiating, pronouncements
of intent, etc.
surrogates begin floating the idea of a possible
election postponement if an attack was to occur,
hoping Democrats will take the bait, and decry
such an idea.
attack occurs 1-2 days prior to the election,
followed immediately by a grainy, scratchy audio
or video, one that on closer examination appears
obviously (and intentionally) bogus, in which
Osama bin Laden or Zarqawi state something along
the line of - "This is just a taste of what
Allah will be sending your way if Bush remains
the face of a potentially devastating "Vote
for Bush or the terrorists win!" Bush/GOP landslide
victory - one that will 'seal the deal' for
Republican rule for decades - it's the Democrats
who will have no other choice but to demand
a postponement of the election until the emotion
of the attack subsides and the veracity of the
video/audio tape can be investigated.
which point the neocons play their win-win hand
and complete the coop: their media outlets ravage
the Democratic Party for rank hypocrisy and
"treasonously trying to circumvent the Constitution!",
and they themselves gain a precedent - established
by the Democrats - to do the same if and when
the need arises.
telling you, this is how this group works. I call
it the 'Rove Effect', but it's source is undoubtedly
much higher upstream (or further up the sewage
pipe) than that.
the answer to this dark scenario is near the beginning
of this blurb. Nothing else is going to matter
unless the average American citizen adopts more
of a perceptive, rather than emotional approach
to what's going on.
the "2004 October Surprise Terror Attack" (if
this is the kind of 'surprise' that occurs) is
not going to be the last. It will be just one
of many we will likely be dealing with from here
one wants to hear something like this, but that's
where we're at. That's what you get when you whack
that hornets nest, as Bush did in Iraq (and soon
to be Iran - watch for it - it's coming!).
was and is the method to their madness, at least
on the domestic front. Ignite the fundamentalist
Muslim world against us (adding tens of thousands
to the terrorist ranks), fueling a never-ending
'war on terror'. Then use that war - and the fear
generated - as a tool to dismantle, one by one,
the structural components of our unique but fragile
system of self rule by "we the people", and replace
it with a theocratic form of military/industrial
corporatism. One in which the nation's wealth
will be owned/controlled by an elite few, and
the words 'freedom' and 'liberty' will mean something
altogether different than they do now.
not too late to pull this country back from that
brink, but we are edging awfully close, and we're
running out of time.
round up some help, get a good grip, and do what
