A conspiracy is an agreement between two or more persons to commit an illegal act or to achieve a legal objective through illegal means. The essence of a conspiracy is the agreement; and the perceived harm is the increased danger from concerted action. An overt act in furtherance of the agreement is sometimes required by statute to complete a conspiracy, but the purpose of this requirement is merely to demonstrate an active agreement. Conspiracy may be prosecuted as a crime or as a civil cause of action. The presence of conspiracy expands the rules of evidence and procedure.
In our joy at winning the election in spite of all the money spent by Republicans, all the lies told by Mitt Romney, the propaganda disguised as Fair and Balanced news coverage that is Fox News, we are wrong to simply celebrate the victory.
We need to prosecute those involved in the conspiracy. I am not talking about Conspiracy in Theory, I am talking about Comspiracy committed across state lines in the United States of America, and it is a Conspiracy that is better documented than any Comspiracy in the history of history.
First off, we could file a class action lawsuit against Rupert Murdoch, or, against the FCC for failing to follow their own rules about granting licenses to broadcast in this country. A lcensee must be of good moral character to hold a broadcast license.
Rush Limbaugh just admitted today that he lied to his listeners. Supreme Court Justices Alito and Thomas attending meetings with plaintiffs who are bringing a case before the Supreme Court. Fox News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and a nationwide echo chamber of Conservative radio stations are conspiring to introduce propaganda. in other words lies, on a cooperative level. One reinforcing the lies of the next, who echos the same lies again, and again, and again.
What damage was done by this latest conspiracy? Every voter who had to stand in line for hours, because of a conspiracy to make lines longer to affect an election could be a plaintiff in a class action suit against the Republican Party. Every person who has to listen to a Republican spout off the lies, also known as talking points, that Fox News and others spout daily with impunity are affected.
Our Democracy just went through an attack, and luckily it was unsuccessful, but does that mean we should just be happy we won?
I believe that would be a huge mistake. Fox News tried to expand their operation into Canada, and they said no. We don't want your poison here. Well, we don't want their poison here either. Rupert Murdock can be described in many ways, but if someone tried to describe him as a man of high morals, that would be as ludicrous as claiming that Sarah Palin is a deep thinker.
We have a situation in this country that needs to be addressed. We have been under attack ever since the fairness doctrine was repealed, and we need to put it back as badly as we need to put back Glass/Steigal.
We can sit here all happy that the President survived the 4 year assault he has suffered through, or we can do something about it.
One thing I have learned in my life, a crime unpunished is a crime that will be repeated.
Now is the time to do something about it. The President took an oath not to protect the people, but to protect the Constitution, which is the only real protection the people have. The founding fathers knew even then to include the language..."from enemies both foreign and domestic"
So, do you feel as I do, that we just went through a conspiracy to steal this election? And if you do, should we just say...thank goodness it didn't work?
We don't do that with criminals who try to rob a bank. If they don't get away with the money, do we say there is no crime committed? No.
Our country has been under attack in an organized fashion, from our airwaves, to our courts, to our politicians and our response to that conspiracy could do more to bring this country back together than any kind of compromise.
Think about it.
