BAN the GOP

It is obvious that the criminal republican elements are stoking the fires everywhere, and planning to subvert the 2010 elections by placing their drones in the Congress through massive voting fraud. I wish to Gaea I didn't have to recommend this action. By now the republican party should have been so tied up in knots in all the courts in the country that we would never have the need to provide the republican criminals the opportunity to subvert the will of the American and global citizens.



For the first time in history, I feel that we should suspend an election until we can GUARANTEE the result of the voting would be fair and just. The only way such a result would happen is if the progressives maintained and, in fact, increased power in both the House and the Senate. Such a result will guarantee the implementation of our progressive health care, environmental, and corporate conversions to that of a solid foundation, while ensuring the criminal republican capitalists do not disrupt the process which would only benefit the fat cat republican corporate billionaires at the expense of the vast majority of progressive, middle class people.

As it stands now, the republicans have, through irresponsible and borderline Internet activity, talk radio, and Fox News (which should be regulated and neutered), started to line up candidates for next year's election.

So I say: What can we do to delay the election? I've studied the Constitution; there are precedents in place that can allow the president to circumvent the process, but it would take a supermajority in the senate (as it stands now), as well as a simple majority in Congress, to stop federal elections.

In addition, the President can even declare emergencies that would preclude the congressional election cycle. Such emergencies would not have to be limited to acts of war against the US, but any number of reasons.

Let's brainstorm this obvious necessity and see what we can come up with.
