I think it would be great to get a few hundred thousand people out on the streets carrying signs that say... nothing.

A blank white paper sign says, I think, far more than any sort of protest message could.

  • It's emblematic of the lack of a coherent plan in our current semblance of government.
  • It represents curtailing of free speech rights.
  • It will leave TV viewers wondering if the signs have been edited out of broadcasts.
  • It will leave the protest up to the imagination of the viewer.
  • It's a hook to get people thinking.
  • No one can possibly complain about the content.

Lack of promotion of the current regime equals dissent, and would be treated as such. Ergo, I believe your plan would not have the desired effect.

Yeah, well, my second choice was "Impeach Gore - He's been doing a terrible job since we elected him!".

i think it's a good idea. waving white flags might head off unpleasant confrontations with law enforcement, too.
