Dangerous Ideas: Political Violence

Maybe this is the way you should respond when your government is corrupt and your elections are stolen. Incessant complaining on the part of American Liberals has proven to be inaffective at best as a means of affecting change in government.

Even internation observers disputed the tally of the vote. When protesters started to shout "STOP" at the polls the guns were turned on the voters. Wow. From NPR: Protesters Dispute Kibaki Victory in Kenya Election

For alternative methods of protest (non-violent) I highly recommend: Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky.
