  •  Time to take matters in hand! (none)
    We cannot tolerate this abuse of our electoral system. It is time for sit-ins and occupation of election offices and other forms of civil disobedience.

    If anyone can get into the offices, grab the hard drives, that's where the evidence of corruption will be found.

    We must start resisting, not just complaining.

    •  I don't wish to abuse your (none)
      freedom of speech. On the other hand, I don't want you to abuse mine. Posting incitements to crime on Daily Kos could get the blog silenced.
      While I sincerely believe that such is not your intention, posting calls for illegal acts against property could be the very excuse the fascists in DC need, to extinguish our collective voice.
      Please consider, in future, that "What a man writeth [on the Internet] endureth forever," and that repressive governments have spies and long memories and compliant courts.
      Remarks such as your post are the equivalent of handing the radicals in power a loaded gun and painting a target on this blog.
    •  you are silly (none)
      Crime violence is wrong, and I assume you are being hyperbolic.

      In this case the suggestion is also stupid, you break in, grab the hard drives and then the evidence (which you have just completely negated the value of by taking into your possession) would not be useful to any prosecutor much less court of law.

      Not to mention it is likely encrypted and for   that you need a 14-year old to decipher it.
