What do we do if Carl wins?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Karl : One Thread

I've heard that the election is going to be a toss-up. I can't say with confidence that Joe Ada will win. Right now, it's just too hard to say. What do us "ABCers" do if Carl wins? I know there are people on Guam fed up with the bullshit. How can they last another 4 years?

I really have to question whether the FBI will find anything against Karl and even if they do will they really press any charges? I'd be pissed if Karl has the FBI in his pocket too. I sure hope he doesn't.

The "activists" aren't going to get much media attention. I'll tell you that right now. If they do receive any at all it is going to be extremely negative. What we will see are the activists portrayed as uneducated, stupid savages with nothing else better to do with their lives than harrass Guam's favorite son. Will the protests achieve the goals of these groups?

I really hope the Ada/Camacho team starts pushing their agenda more. They really need to be out there to get their message across.

I think Joe is behind right now, but there are a lot of people making their minds up in the next week and a half or so. These are critical times for the elections. If Karl's lies are allowed to go unchallenged, he'll probably win. Joe has to look positive, but he has to challenge Karl's record of corruption.

If Karl wins, we'll all live. It'll get more and more frustrating, but four years isn't an eternity. Either way, I can't wait to see what the FBI is coming out with. There is just too much evidence for Karl and his kronies not to be indicted. Before the election, great. After, just fine. As long as he's indicted and out of there sometime.

I don't think that if Karl is elected, we should just lie there and take it. If we see more of his corruption, we need to speak out. We need to protest. I never thought I'd agree with Angel, but after taking so much, you have to make your outrage with the wrongdoings known. Maybe after the election I'll join the activists. You kinda have to admire their courage and principals.

The point is, the people shouldn't let their elected leaders get away with murder. Let's make sure we don't.
