Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington has sparked more than 1,160 mini-rallies in 84 countries, morphing into something of a global political happening.

Phi Beta Iota: This time around it is only Americans living overseas that have tuned into the Rally to Restore Sanity.  We predict that by 2012 the tools, tactics, and techniques developed by the Independents to restore integrity to the US electoral system will spread like a wild fire around the world, ultimately bringing down all 44 dictators, some sooner than later.  The Rally to Restore Sanity can best be described as the first globally-televised non-violent populist movement that seeks to restore informed civility to the public dialog.
