    When the polls close, we propose that Democrats across the country gather outside their County Election Office for a candlelight vigil to Count Every Vote, all wearing the same color: Blue.

    Imagine a Blue Revolution, every bit as joyous and historic as the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the Cedar Revolution Lebanon, the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, and the other democratic revolutions of recent years - right here in the United States of America.

    Help us organize a vigil in your county - just create a new Forum Topic coded "Blue Revolution," select "County," post the location of your County Election Office, and spread the word to your friends. More details below...

    Should we start a Blue Revolution across the USA on Election Night to stop Republicans from stealing Election 2006?

    This Congressional election has witnessed vastly more local polling than ever before, and every poll points to the same result: Democrats will win more than the 15 seats we need to win the House of Representatives, and we are ahead or tied in the 6 seats we need to win the Senate.

    These polls are not isolated local phenomena, but are part of a national tidal wave visible in every national poll.

    * Voters prefer "generic" Democrats over Republicans by nearly 20%, which is the largest gap in the history of polling. When Newt Gingrich's Republican Revolutionaries seized 54 seats in 1994, they had a "generic" gap of only 7 points.

    * George Bush's approval rating is below 40% in every poll, well below Bill Clinton's mid-40's approval rating in 1994.

    * The approval rating for the Republican-run Congress is down to 16%, the lowest in history. Voters - including many Republicans - say they want Democrats to run Congress.

    * Every poll shows the dominant issue in this election is the disastrous war in Iraq. Voters blame George Bush and the Republican Party for this disaster and they want to change the course, not stay the course. Bush's claim that he never said "stay the course" is destroying his last shred of credibility.

    Yet despite this overwhelming polling evidence, George Bush - along with Dick Cheney and Karl Rove - adamantly insist that Republicans are going to win on November 7.

    What do they know that we don't know?

    As time runs out for an October Surprise, there's only one possibility: that they have rigged the election process to guarantee Republicans win.:rotflmao:

    Sounds like they are already making excuses for when they dont win.

    Dont they understand how dangerous this rhetoric is? There are enough people who will actually buy this utter crap. When Democrats lose again in a week and a half they are going to make all these dumb claims that Republicans stole the election. Every single election they do this they undermine our system. They make people distrustful of elections.

    If they keep it up it wont be too long before people start thinking voting will be useless and they need to take to the streets for themselves. Very dangerous rhetoric.
