Gerrymandering (the real voting fraud)

Have you ever wondered why:

● your state is a Red/Blue State ?

● why your district is shaped "funny" ?

● why congressmen stay in office for 30+ years ?

● what a "safe seat" is ?

It's called Gerrymandering. Diebold has nothing on this !

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerrymandering

The voters Do Not pick their Representatives, the Representatives pick the Voters;

"Most of us accept that our electoral system is corrupted, or at least compromised. We have an ongoing debate in this country about how to best conduct our elections—how to prevent voter suppression and tampering, and how to make the system more accurate and accountable. But maybe we have a bigger problem—bigger than punch cards versus touch screens. Maybe elections are decided well before Election Day."

"As a mapmaker, I can have more of an impact on an election than a campaign, [more of an impact] than a candidate. When I, as a mapmaker, have more of an impact on an election than the voters....... the system is out of whack"
- David Winston (who drew House districts for the GOP after the 1990 U.S. census)

Stalin on Voting

He has been quoted as saying, "Those who cast the votes decide nothing.
Those who count the votes decide everything."

ACORN

With Acorn handling much of the Census in 2010 there will be some major gerrymandering.

Real election fraud

Yes, Diebold (now renamed Premier Election Solutions) has nothing on this.

But I cannot refrain from mentioning that bipartisan, black-box, Stalinist-style elections have corrupted the integrity of the vote. And as such constitute "real election fraud."

What was once an intuitive process of writing down one's vote down on paper, collecting those ballots and counting them, all in public, has been perverted to the degree to where the process is unrecognizable as a practice of a representative democracy.

Black-box, electronic balloting and vote-counting systems running proprietary software not auditable by the public effectively render the recording of votes and the vote count in secret.

Both gerrymandering and black-box voting are fraudulent in nature. Both are "real." And both wings of the War Party are guilty.

Voter fixing

I'm not even sure our votes are counted at the precints.Case in point,I voted for a Libertarian candidate for some local office some years ago.It was for Judge or Sheriff or something,basicly I voted against the incumbent.But anyway the Libertarian candidate was a obscure name on the ballot.But I voted for him,and when all the votes had been counted 100% of the precints reporting,at my precint this candidate had 0 votes.Now I know he had at least one vote ,the vote I cast.And I find it even harder to believe that there wasn't at least a few more votes for him.So either my vote wasn't counted or I encountered some Gerrymandering.
