DEMOCRACY SPRING DC SIT-INS BEGIN NOW CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEYS MAY BE NEEDED SOON!!!

by George Hook on 03/29/16

With little fanfare and almost no news media attention, some of the same radicals involved in shutting down the Trump Chicago rally [recently] [and, no doubt, such others as the flag disser Dimassimo who leaped on stage at the Trump Dayton rally, and the PHRMers who blocked roads leading to the Trump rally in Arizona] are plotting a mass civil disobedience movement to begin one day after April Fools.   The operation, calling itself Democracy Spring, is threatening drama in Washington with the largest civil disobedience action of the century.  

Democracy Spring will demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do—or until they send thousands of us to jail, Democracy Spring [quote source: http://www.democracyspring.org] declares, channeling rhetoric from the Occupy movement [and paralleling the disastrous Arab Spring, at least in name].  The group is backed by numerous organizations, including MoveOn.org, which is funded by George Soros [a billionaire two times over Trump].  The attack of Trump is ludicrous given the complaint that American elections are dominated by billionaires and big money interests who can spend unlimited sums of money on political campaigns to protect their special interests at the general expense, and their Soros support.   Likewise their assertion that this corruption violates the core principle of American democracy –one person, one vote citizen equality,  which ignores the actual provisions of the Constitution, providing for election of the President by an electoral college consisting of delegates selected by the States as determined by State Law. 

As ludicrous is their accusing the billionaires of blocking reform on virtually every critical issue facing our country: from addressing historic economic inequality, to tackling climate change and ending mass incarceration, as it ignores that most billionaires are recent and self-made, by means of exceptional intelligence, diligence, extraordinary productivity, and luck rather than by those means Democracy Spring is employing to force equality with them—blocking government functions by unproductive, obstructive marches, sit-ins, shouting, disrespectful placards prepared by MoveOn, and other forms  of civil disobedience, until some unspecified remedial legislation is passed by Congress.

The following assertion from Democracy Spring’s website--But if the status quo goes unchallenged, the 2016 election â€” already set to be the most billionaire-dominated, secret money-drenched, voter suppression-marred contest in modern American history—may apply to Clinton, Cruz, Kasich, and all the candidates who have dropped out, but not to Trump, the target of Democracy Spring, the only one who definitely DOES NOT fit the accusation because, although a billionaire, Trump is self-funding and therefore immediately fully disclosed.

Democracy Spring calls up Selma, Occupy Wall Street, the Tar Sands Action, Black Lives Matter, to posit the premise that everyday people have proven the power of mass, escalating nonviolent action to rapidly shift the political weather and open the door to reforms previously considered impossible.  Without belaboring the falsity of the premise, suffice it to state that none of whatever Democracy Spring wants can occur without a Constitutional amendment to change or eliminate the Electoral College and the role of the States.  The method for Constitution amendment assures that nothing can happen in time for the 2016 Presidential Election; and likely not ever.  Just like the Electoral College, the provision for Amendment of the Constitution is essential to preserving the power of the States in our federal system of government.  How implausible is it that the States would agree to whatever changes Democracy Spring would propose?

So that brings us to Democracy Spring’s alternative to obstructing government until Congress changes the Law--Mass Arrests, which are more likely and could possibly involve the Mass Arrestees sitting out the election in jail and therefore unable to vote for any Candidate for President, and thus effectively stifling the very voices that they intend to raise in their Quixotic Cause.   

Democracy Spring  began its epic journey at noon on 4/2 at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, then to move by the dozens across 140 miles on foot, and arrive [at the Capitol Building] in DC for massive civil disobedience to end the corruption of big money in politics and ensure an equal voice for all in our elections on 4/11, to remain there until at least 4/16.  Follow Democracy Spring’s trek along with us in the safest way, daily and at an internet distance.

Democracy Springs march and rally route from Philadelphia to DC:

Day 1  April 2nd CONCLUDED 

Start:  Philadelphia, PA

10:00 am: met at the Liberty Bell for a big kickoff rally with speakers, entertainment and registration.   [Liberty Bell rally--a demonstration,  parade, or  special event, each requiring application to the City of Brotherly Love, approval and issuance of a permit and  $1million insurance policy.  Did Democracy Spring comply so to avoid the end of their epic journey before it began? Apparently, because they were escorted out of town by the Police rather than arrest.]  People registered.  It was raining.  Professor Lessig spoke with passion but the message was merely “we walk for equality.”  While conceding the inequalities of race and gender that were explicit in our Constitution, he asserted that is not the case with economic inequalities. But is he right?  Does the Constitution not prohibit taking of property without due process or just compensation, ex post facto applications, impairment of contracts, exclusivity to individuals their arts and inventions?

At 12:00 all those not arrested were to begin the epic journey. Nobody was arrested.  Instead, the Philly Police escorted about 100 orderly marchers along Walton to the outskirts where they proceeded to Ridley Park, Pa. instead of Prospect Park, as originally planned.
