The defeatist attitude of many Americans. Has lead our government to easily manipulate elections. Yes there is voter fraud all over the US.
voter fraud at the local level
This is where the manipulation of the people of the United States begins. It is the poor turnout in your local elections when you should be vetting
your candidates before they get to DC. I have voted against Mitch McConnell since his very first election for judge. Many of us have a slogan about
him in our state." Even a snake will smile at you before it strikes". In the first link I gave you voter fraud that was found in a local election in
one the election was decided by one vote.
My God people under 30% of registered voters vote in local elections then everyone whines and complains when these POS make it to DC and make
decisions for our federal government.
Here is a link to the mayoral race in one of our largest cities Los Angeles. One Third of registered voters even bothered to vote.
The 2001 race for mayor of Los Angeles was one of the closest and most exciting in decades. With incumbent mayor Richard Riordan leaving office
because of term limits, several strong candidates from various political and ethnic backgrounds ran for the office, and surveys indicated that the
race was too close to call. It therefore came as a surprise to some that only 33.5 percent of the city’s registered voters came to the polls to cast
votes in the April primary nominating election and only 36.2 percent voted in the June runoff election. Given the widely perceived interest in the
contest, why did nearly two of three registered voters stay home? Are Los Angeles voters unusual in their degree of civic disinterest?
It seems to me that this could even be manipulation by the political parties to help manipulate the votes the term "your vote doesn't count "to me
it's giving up your rights.
The presidential elections are not far behind though lately they've received 50 to 60% voter turnout supposedly. But with Rigged voting machines and
absenting ballots we cannot even be sure of that. ( not to mention dead people voting)
voter turnout presidential elections
My god the bastion of democracy is far behind many other nations. People we are being tricked could you imagine the results if we had voter turnout
like these nations at our local and national election level. There would be so many people voting that it would be impossible to rig elections because
the public would know for sure.
Uruguay (96.1% in 2009)
Ecuador (90.8% in 2009)
Uzbekistan (89.8% in 2007)
Rwanda (89.2% in 2010)
Angola (87.5% in 1992)
Turkmenistan (87.0% in 2012)
Peru (86.2% in 2011)
Bolivia (85.6% in 2009)
Tunisia (85.2% in 2009)
Equatorial Guinea (83.0% in 2009)
Belarus (81.7% in 2010)
Tajikistan (80.8% in 2006)
I would love to see 90% turnout at the state and local elections which is our only real time to vet the candidates. I would also like to see a similar
percentage in a presidential elections then we would be sure our vote counted.
The people of America have the opportunity to make a difference. But it seems we've become so disenchanted weed rather sit on our computers and
I cannot stress enough participation in your state and local elections. That's where we can chop the heads off the big-money snakes before they get
Bottom line is don't be a quitter get out there and vote and get other people interested in politics. We can make a difference all we have to do is
get off our butts.
The only reason your vote doesn't count is because you are not voting
