Plutocracy: A country or society governed by the wealthy few. “America, today, is much closer to a plutocracy than a democracy.” Join the revolt against the plutocrats: Pledge to vote Green Party in the general election now Bernie is not the nominee for the Democratic Party.
How to understand plutocracy: Noam Chomsky explains: “There’s ample evidence that most of the population, at the lower end of the income spectrum, is effectively disenfranchised – their representatives pay no attention to their opinions. Moving up the income ladder, influence increases slowly, but it’s only at the very top that it has real impact. Plutocracy masquerading as formal democracy.”
How to abolish plutocracy: Senator Sanders framed his candidacy as a “political revolution.” Before he got up on the stage to endorse #CorporateClinton, he dropped the torch of revolution he used to light a fire in America. Bernie or bust was there, picked it up, brought it to Philly where we handed it to Jill Stein, Green Party candidate for President and the last revolutionary left standing.
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will.” ~Frederick Douglass
Revolt Against Plutocracy sponsored the Bernie or bust pledge strategy: The word “Must” in the headline refers to the requirement for supporters of Senator Sanders to now take the Jill or BUST pledge. Without over four million voters telling voters that Hillary will lose, Trump will be elected. We aim to compel liberals and progressive to vote Green or else Trump will be the next President. RAP has a super PACs we limited to $1,000/person out of respect for Sanders’ opposition to them, but now the gloves come off. The #BernieOrBust pledge strategy was a way for Sanders’ supporters, American revolutionaries, to — in effect — vote first. The #JillOrBUST pledge is a movement building strategy. We aim to defeat Hillary Clinton in the general election. The superdelegates were warned. When they nominated Hillary anyway, they conveyed to the Berniecrats they would rather have Trump in the White House than Sen. Sanders. #WeAreNotAfraid #JillNotHill
The Jill or BUST pledge is as simple as it will be effective. It involves two easy steps, and both are essential to the success of this campaign strategy. They are:
- Join thousands of political revolutionaries, who have filled out a simple pledge to vote Green in 2016. With enough leverage, Revolt Against Plutocracy can shock the American left — in the news media and with ads — into understanding that voting for Clinton will put Donald Trump into the White House. This leverage will apply enough pressure to deter voter support for a regressive, establishment candidate like Hillary Clinton only if over 4,000,000 voters of any party take the #JillOrBUST pledge. Therefore:
- Pledge-takers need to recruit at least two friends, relatives, etc. to take the Jill or BUST pledge right away. This is the only way a critical mass will be attained to maximize leverage with liberal and moderate Democrats for Stein as President. 14% of Democrats will not vote for Hillary in the general election, and we need your help finding them to take the pledge. Posting a link to this website on Facebook or tweeting it does not work. We recommend using Facebook and/or Twitter messaging or emails to friends and relatives with a simple question and URL: Will you take the Jill or BUST pledge? http://wp.me/p6itlU-80 When two people tell you yes, they will (not already have), your two-part pledge will be completed. We will take it from there.
Why at least two people? The table to the right depicts the power of two. There is no way, not with advertisements, not with dozens of volunteers helping promote this strategy online, we can build enough leverage by election day unless every person taking the Jill or BUST pledge recruits at least two — just two more — people to take the pledge as well. If every pledge-taker had recruits just two more people to take this pledge in two days on average, there will be over 4 million pledges in two months. Please, do not delay; get part two of your pledge off your plate as soon as possible. It’s fast and easy. Just highlight, copy and paste…

…into emails and/or social media messages to friends today, right now. The revolution must continue.
Revolutions are dangerous: Senator Sanders was up against an establishment party that had the rules rigged against him, not just with the limited debate schedule, but with Super Tuesday, when massive spending will be required, super delegates and a DNC that actively opposed him. Revolt Against Plutocracy believes the Jill or BUST pledge is key to defeating Clinton and Trump, two dangerous and revolting plutocrats, in Nov. Superdelegates, given the choice of Bernie Sanders or else they may lose the election to Donald Trump, chose Trump when they nominated Hillary. However, their fear is up to them to eliminate by supporting Bernie Sanders for President. The pledge strategy plays into and benefits from the real fear of losing the Executive Branch to the Republicans. Only Jill Stein can unite the left now, because American revolutionaries will not accept another corporate-backed candidate. RAP rejects the lesser-of-two-evils voting strategy as a con job. #UniteBehindJill #JillNotHill #SheepNoMore #WeAreNotAfraid
A revolution must equalize political donations: We believe democracy stems from the principle of political equality. That means, not just one person, one vote, but equal contributions of money to candidates, parties and PACs by all citizens. Revolt Against Plutocracy is a single-issue, public interest group organizing a revolution against plutocracy. The election of Senator Sanders to the White House will be just the first step. We will support progressive candidates running on Bernie’s agenda to build a Congress which will pass an amendment to the Constitution to overturn Buckley v Valeo, the decision that first equated money to speech acts. This will take a while, probably at least three election cycles. One of the reasons our pledge form asks for contact and state of voter registration information is to empower RAP’s revolutionary pledge-takers will help finish the democratic, peaceful revolution Bernie Sanders initiated.
Thank you for taking the Jill or BUST pledge. #WeAreNotAfraid #JillNotHill #SheepNoMore
#AllLegalMeans: Revolt Against Plutocracy is bringing “weapons” to this revolutionary civil (peaceful) war for democratic order. Our grassroots CAP PAC is now unleashed to accept unlimited donations. The gloves come off. We are in this to win this for the future of our civilization. CAP PAC is a super PAC committed to abolish super PACs.
