Republicans Are Rigging Our Elections


Make no mistake about it. Our elections are being rigged by the REPUBLICAN PARTY. There’s no such thing as fair elections and there’s probably never been one; REPUBLICANS know that they can’t get elected to public office otherwise. They are controlling our elections to stay power; they appoint key officials in very powerful positions in state houses to guarantee that they stay in power. During the 2012 election there were over 70 thousand claims of voter machine problems. There were extremely long lines in many of the voting districts in several states mostly in minority communities where BLACKS and Hispanic live; some lines were as long as 15 hours to cast votes. This is criminal and public officials should be held responsible and they should be put in jail.
There were more than 6 million votes that when uncounted. Just ask Greg Palast about provisional ballots, caging ballots, and targeting DEMOCRATIC DISTRICTS by REPUBLICAN LAW MAKERS. Read his new book “Ballot Bandits.” Furthermore, the voter suppression laws in the swing states to assure REPUBLICANS stay in power.
There were Diebold Electronic Machines in 357 counties across the USA counting 10% of the votes, and there were other electronic machines doing the same. These machine can easily be hacked, reprogrammed, and they often malfunction they can flip votes, or not work at all. The REPUBLICAN PARTY knows that they can’t win by the popular vote so they need to steal elections to stay in power.
Gerrymandering Districts to stay in power is the GOP Plan B:
“CNN) — Nearly two centuries ago Wednesday, Massachusetts Gov. Elbridge Gerry signed an obscure redistricting law that helped his party stay in office and, more importantly, codified one of the most enduring legacies in U.S. politics: gerrymandering.

The U.S. House of Represenatives, home to many beneficiaries of gerrymandering.

Now a part of an American lexicon often heard in Washington’s K Street bars and among “inside-the-beltway” crowds, the term is seen as a combination of the governor’s name and the word “salamander,” because of the salamander-like shape one electoral district took on after the redistricting.
Elected governor in 1810, Gerry signed the redistricting bill two years later, enabling greater and perhaps disproportionate Republican representation in the Massachusetts legislature.
The controversial move has become a favorite across the country among incumbent parties, which pack opposition voters into districts already lost in an effort to minimize the opposition’s influence over the state’s broader electorate.”

“Earlier this week, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus endorsed a Republican plan to rig the next presidential election to make it nearly impossible for the Democratic candidate to win the White House, no matter who the American people vote for. The election-rigging plan, which would allocate electoral votes by congressional district rather than by states as a whole in a handful of states that consistently vote for Democratic presidential candidates, would have allowed Mitt Romney to narrowly win the Electoral College last November despite losing the popular vote by nearly four points.” Think Progress Justice Jan. 16, 2013. Yet, the main street media refuses to report these facts because they’re protecting their corporate masters. Like if this doesn’t matter. These GLOBAL COIRPORATIONS want us living in DARK CAVES in total silence. They have become the HIGH PRIEST and they rule the world.
