5. THE ELECTION BOYCOTT IS WORKING TO “BUILD A CULTURE OF RESISTANCE”
Some ask, ‘What will the Election Boycott DO?” “What will it accomplish?” This action, as with any action does not show a direct ‘result’. It not if we do A then that result in B. It’s not like that. A very important contribution of the Election Boycott is that it BUILDS A CULTURE OF RESISTANCE as per Glen Ford of Black Agenda Report: “… what we do need are organizations that are willng to confront power…willing to identify who the enemy is and to call them out… to make sense of emerging realities…. to involve as many people as possible in forceful and sustained opposition to those who do harm to the the people. A real movement builds a ‘culture of resistance’….a widely held belief that is it is right to resist…” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUf6nSLl0a0

STILL NOT CONVINCED?
At both the DNC and the RNC Theatrical Convention Shows a public “vote” was cast. At each convention a party leader would go up to the podium and direct the audience to say ‘YAY’ if they were in favor of the item or ‘NAY’ if they were opposed. Whichever roar was the loudest indicated the selection of the voters. However, the Ruling Class had something else in mind.
The teleprompter for each convention had a pre-written text for the speaker of the outcome of the ‘YAY’ or ‘NAY’ vote, which had been entered into the teleprompter prior to the audience’s response.
Watch this very public act of deceit for yourself to see this little scam exposed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmaE2Aez_XY
The Dems were challenged a bit more as the audience didn’t cooperate and so the speaker demanded a ‘do over’ until the audience response matched the pre-determined outcome.
