US Think Tank Suggests Americans to Boycott Upcoming Elections

US Think Tank Suggests Americans to Boycott Upcoming Elections

 

A US think tank said that Americans should boycott the upcoming US elections rather than choosing between bad and worse, because the policies of the US presidential rivals, (US President) Barack Obama and Mitt Romney pursue the interests of the one percent rich instead of the ordinary people. http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9107113266

Election Boycotts Are Popular Worldwide — And Now in the US, too!

INTRO BY ELECTION DISSENTER TED RALL:

 

“Voter boycotts have a long and honorable tradition in other countries. Don’t believe the hype—they really care if we don’t vote. Why do you think tyrants like Saddam held regular elections? They were the only candidate on the ballot, but th ey craved electoral legitimacy. Same thing here. Imagine if only 5% of Americans voted. It would send the message that we disapprove of our government. If only 5% voted, 9/11 might never have happened because Al Qaeda could never have argued that we agreed with US foreign policy. The UN would view us for what we are, the oppressed citizens of an authoritarian police state. Most importantly, it would create the space for a new political movement—space currently being taken up by the duopoly.

Let them bomb innocent Pakistanis without my endorsement.”

Boycott the 2012 Presidential Election

Radio Interview: Terri Lee with Bob Carson of Carson’s Corner

Have a listen:

AUDIO: http://prolecenter.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/boycott-the-2012-election-carsons-corner-interviews-terri-lee/#comment-881

(The Boycott interview begins after the intro at about 5:00)

We here at Carson’s Corner in conjunction with Underground Progressive, 530 AM, have waited a long time to have online activist Terri Lee on the program. Followed and admired by thousands, Terri Lee has come to the forefront of progressives who are fed up with Obama and the Democrats. We see the two political parties as essentially indistinguishable; and we are not afraid to go against the establishment to ensure a better America.

*NOTE: Proletarian Center for Research, Education and Culture has officially endorsed the call to Boycott the 2012 Presidential Election
