First, it's never to late for a boycott. You're talking to an eldergay (42)who's mother boycotted grapes for years. We supported the Farm Workers.
Secondly, I think the best thing we can do no matter what the outcome, is get active and stay active. If we're ever going to reclaim the high ground we need to take a page out of the Tea Party playbook and keep raising hell.
I just e-mailed my Congressman to insist he publically condemn Daryl Issa for ignoring the President's claim of Executive Privilege. I've contacted many members of both houses condemning the Food Stamp cuts.
In my state we're laying off teachers, policemen, and administrative workers, our neighbors, more than two thousand more than we already laid off, because the state & local governments are in trouble.
This further weakens our communities. These people won't be able to find jobs and they will lose their homes. They won't buy cars either. No shopping at the Mall.
If we allow Congress to roll back healthcare reform, cut food stamps, eliminate or cut unemployment benefits, insist that secretaries pay more taxes then billionaires,and block any kind of financial reforms, we're screwed.
The true game plan is to bring government to it's knees at every level. We will still pay. Someone always has to pay. What trickles down is the bill. Remember the firefighters who sat and let a house burn, because the guy didb't pay his fees?
They can "outsource" as much as they like, then do independent contractors, and set up authorities to "iversee" service delivery, and collect "fess." We'll never be able to hold anyone to account because we won't know whose in charge. It's Corporate fascism.
We have to fight it. No way can we allow them to roll back our rights,to appoint Supreme court justices, to turn us into a third tier country.
The power to stop this is in our hands. If Romney wins, it's because we allowed it to happen. That is something I refuse to contemplate.
