Will the 2010 elections be fixed?

In one way or the other they will be.

Where the election is a fiction, the representation is a fiction also.  Like will always produce like.
- Thomas Paine to the Citizens of the United States, January 29, 1803

The essential problem with the American republic today is that "the representation is a fiction" because our elections are fraudulent fiction.  President Obama and the Congressmen running the United States do not really represent us, the American people.  Our politicians are beholden to the people who put them in power, i.e.  the people who own and control the electronic voting machine systems used across the United States.

The only way to peacefully restore the stolen sovereignty to the American people is to restore integrity and transparency to our elections.  The widespread use of electronic voting machines is how our republic is stolen from us every time we hold elections.  The easiest and surest way to get our nation back is to return to hand-counted paper ballots in every polling place across the United States. 

The Constitution gives the states and counties the authority to determine the manner of voting.  The citizens in every county need to be involved and present at the counting of the votes in every polling place to properly authenticate the tally.  This is the absolute essential condition, the conditio sine qua non of an open and democratic election.  If the people are not involved in the counting of the votes, the election is not authentic.  It's that simple.  A few hours spent counting votes is a small price (but the absolute minimum required) to pay for preserving our republic. {more}

From the local and state to the national elections there has always been a certain amount of vote fraud. Unscrupulous people conspired, money was passed, it happened. Even John Kennedy may have been elected thanks to the 'Chicago voting machine.'

Today's voting  'technology' forced upon us by the federal government makes things a little easier for those who want to fix an election, but that's not the only way to manipulate the vote

In electronic voting with no paper trail, the South Carolina debacle of Alvin Greene winning the democratic Senate primary was so blatant that it appears the fraudsters are open about giving us the finger and daring us to do anything about it. It may also be to create disillusionment about the whole voting process. I've heard more than a few say here lately "why vote, it's fixed."

With overwhelming support, my state of Tennessee passed the Voter Confidence Act which required a paper trail for the 2010 elections and even with federal money to implement it, it has been delayed. Why?

It’s never been clear why Republicans are so bent on delaying this law. It would eliminate the hazards of paperless, unverified electronic voting. In Tennessee, 93 of 95 counties use touch-screen machines with no paper trail to verify results. The Voter Confidence Act calls for replacing these by the 2010 elections with paper ballots to be marked by voters and then read by optical scanners–a system allowing for recounts and audits of the actual tallies. Some county election commissioners are against making the change because they’d have to buy paper ballots.
Common sense is to court voters, not create hurdles. I’ve said it before and I most likely will say it again, but why can I get a receipt at McDonald’s when I buy a Quarter Pounder and not one when I cast a vote for someone who can seriously change the world I live in politically? We have the knowledge to land a man on the moon, but a receipt or an option for a paper ballot for a vote is unheard of? {more}

Adding insult to injury is the fraud of the two party system. In the national elections, I'm hard pressed to find anyone in the dual headed monster worth voting for anywhere in the country even if the elections were honest. There are a few who would work for the people and within the framework of the constitution but they have no money and little support and we know how that goes.

The illusion of democracy is not even that anymore.  It's wide open fraud, in your face by those running the show saying go ahead, talk all you want, there's nothing you're going to do about it.

"A republic if you can keep it" once said Ben Franklin. Obviously we haven't been able to.

John Quincy Adams in 1821 set forth the vision of the American republic and predicted what we have become by not sticking to that vision.
She has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when conflict has been for principles to which she clings, as to the last vital drop that visits the heart.... She goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.... She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence ... the fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force.... She might become the dictatress of the world.


  1. there hasn't been an honest state or national election in this country since the mid 1800's,
    but the farce continues because we have recently been made to believe that we are a "democracy" rather than a constitutional republic. Elections were meant to be our only similarity with that horrible form of government that we are spreading like butter over a dying world.
    Great post!

  2. The U.S. is a Plutocratic Oligarchy masquerading as a Constitutional Republic. I chuckle when I see Paulians worship the Founding Fathers who never had the likes of them in mind when they drafted the Property and Prosperity Protectionist masterpiece document better known as the Constitution.

    This America that Washington was to rule was no simple Republic content to manage its affairs within the bounds of the thirteen states. Even in it’s origins in the days of the Founding Fathers, there was the notion that America, the United States, was an empire. Not that they thought of empire in the sense of the commercial British Empire from which they had struggled to be free. They had more the sense of Rome, the great European example of the continental land empire. Rome too, expanded from a tiny state to embrace a continent. That the United States was expansionist from inception is not an idea of the early twentieth century it is there – in the draft Articles of Confederation of 1776. There was never the need for Monroe’s doctrine. Right at the beginning there had been discussion on the placing of the western boundaries of the states. This was dismissed, and the boundaries were simply left as open. Washington was to refer to the States as a “nascent empire” or an “infant empire”. Jefferson told Madison he was “persuaded that no constitution was ever before as well calculated as ours for extending empire and self-government”. Hamilton also referred to the United States as “the most interesting empire in the world”. Roman in mindset, how much was the idea of her first officers self consciously to resemble Consuls? Consuls were, wherever possible, drawn from the oligarchy.

    Consuls who, in their turn, might become emperors.

    "It matters not who cast the votes but who counts them." (paraphrased) Josef Stalin In a sidenote K.S. the great Stark Raving Viking blog is kaput. [:-(
    The blog owner pushed his stones around in a wheelbarrow but may have went too far when he posted nudie pics of the mother of that half-assed halfbreed that gene pool polluters like to call a "president".

    Update K.S.! The Stark Raving Viking is back at 16:19 people's republik time! Yeaaa! I tried a few hour ago and joogle said "blog does not exist."

  5. check this out Kemmy... unbelieveable.

  6. Anyone see a pattern here?

    Leaking oil rig in the Timor Sea

    Oil rig catches fire in Australia

    Western Australia oil spill

    Oil spill threatens the great barrier reef

    Egyptian oil spill threatens the Red Sea

    North Sea oil well abandoned blowout feared.

    The gulf of Mexico is now effectively dead.

  7. We're just returning to our roots, when the Constitution was written by wealthy, white landonwers who didn't let women or non-landowners vote and blacks were thought of as being part of a person.

    Voting today reminds me of a story about how some local wrestling matches weren't making it into the evening news.

    The promoters said they could give them the results ahead of the match if that helped.

  8. Just an update on that link...all the comments were removed and this is what they have been replaced with. I can only wonder what happened...there was a lot of outrage regarding this on there...

    And Dublimick believes the New Madrid just might hold the key to the Mayan great earthquake.

    How does this tie in to the Gulf of Mexico? It does so via the work of a retired geologist-geophysicist, Jack M. Reed. "(He) studied the Gulf and the New Madrid Fault for something like 40 years (and) believes the origin of the earthquakes lies beneath the Gulf of Mexico. "(He also) says the accepted theory of a quiet geologic evolution of the Gulf of Mexico Basin is fundamentally flawed and needs to be revised."

    "A major earthquake on the New Madrid fault would kill 3,500 people and leave millions homeless. It found that more than 80,000 people would be injured by a 7.7-magnitude quake...."

    Not to make light of any of this, if the New Madrid Fault does have an earthquake shortly,
    perhaps you won't need to wait a couple of million years for waterfront property in
    Indianapolis. The water might come to you. Complete with an oily sheen.

    "The two towns most at risk because of their proximity to the fault zone are St. Louis, and Memphis, though towns in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas and Alabama will also see damage, according to the report." If Reed is correct and such earthquakes have their beginnings in the Gulf of Mexico, then it seems to be within the realms of possibility that a big earthquake could happen much sooner than anyone has expected."

    When you realize there are over 3800 oil wells operating in the gulf right now it is a sobering thought. The planet herself could decide to seal this eruption but I doubt it would be a delicate operation.

  10. It really wouldn't matter if elections were honest. The average American is an idiot who only votes their pocketbook. Most of them couldn't tell you the name of even one of their state senators, much less anything about their voting records.

    Besides, since the CONstitution is just some pieces of paper that nobody has ever signed, it isn't legally binding on anybody, which means that the criminal syndicate calling itself the federal government has zero legitimacy and zero legal authority.

    To think that 99% of the population of this country can't figure this out is enough to make me pick up a quart of whisky and not put the bottle down until it's empty.

  11. Try reading Votescam by the Collier brothers about 1970's Florida punchcard voting (which is a verifable paper trail). There's a patent on a 200 card at a time punching machine. I'm afraid it would take some of the best security experts on the planet to even come up with a reasonable system at this point. E-vote = Corp. Control

    Maybe a nuke will be used to seal the oil volcano and that will set off the new Madrid fault?
