I'am at a loss for words America? what are you doing? Bad!
I can imagine representatives being replaced with professional football players. The voting has become a #ing joke. Someone needs to blow the whistle to end the games.

As appalling as I find the voting fraud and lack of over site, to me there is something worse. These people have a job to do, they are elected to do it, paid very well to do it(maybe not in salary but they are paid well
), and they can't even be bothered to show up to do the job. If I didn't show up for work on a constant basis I wonder how long it would be before I get fired

Is there are record of who shows up at what times? If not there should be! It's time these people realize that they are not law makers, leaders or rulers but REPRESENTATIVES! Their job is to vote by proxy for US! Think about it, when this system was set up we had to have someone to go be our voice because it would be impossible for everyone in the country to gather together and work things out. Back then they were people who lived in your community heard what you had to say, went to the same barber shop, church, community meetings and they also had integrity. Somewhere along the line this system got completely twisted, and these people became 'leaders' instead of representatives, they all went mad with power. Now a days they are far to busy taking bribes, doing hookers and blow, and generally jerking each other off to even show up for work?

This issue happens in Indiana as well. Here is a video from 2009.

Yet with all of this proof, they still haven't done anything about it. The same people are voting for others just as they were back then.

This is another form of corruption. If you can't handle the long sessions, don't run.

Oh and Klinker who was caught flat out lying, is still our area Representative as well as my own (distant) cousin, and is so out of touch with what the people actually want that she sits there and tells us what the people need and doesn't pay any attention to what people really want.

Why is she still there you may ask, because either she doesn't have a strong opponent, or people vote for her because they have always voted for her for nearly 30 years and just know the name.

These crooks win seats because they are capable of deviant behavior.

Right tool for the right job, right?

People get fired and arrest for far less than this, yet these people are rewarded with hundred thousand dollar salaries and " no lunch and dinner breaks " poor dears, maybe they have this thing called delivery.

Actually, each one who presses another's button should be considered identity theft, since this is a vote, made by a person elected into a job to vote on behalf of the people that voted for them. If anything this is

Identity theft
Abuse & neglect on duty of government position
false advertising

And the women's reaction, yes " women " shes not an official to me. We don't take breaks, like hell you do, if no one took breaks, I'm sure those seats would be filled by the people who were supposed to be voting.

And this is why I'm not into politics because it's COMPLETELY fake and I don't know how people can't see right thru it, it's very transparent to me and has been since I was a kid.

This is a really old story.. I remember when it first happened, but I don't recall if there was ever a follow up as to whether anyone got "in trouble" for the multiple voting.

think of the team of people that must work to keep these house members aware of what "they" voted for.

posted on May, 8 2012 @ 07:27 PM

They should only be able to cast a vote by swiping a clearance ID card,
and those who transfer their clearance card to someone else should
be charged with treason.

Not in my wildest conspiracy dreams did I ever imagine something like this.

In the OP's video you can see one guy trying to vote for someone, but another person beats him to the button - its like a competition to see who can press the most buttons! this IS NOT proxy voting! this IS NOT democracy! this IS NOT representation!

what is going on here is members voting as many times and they can for what THEY want (or more specifically what their party leaders want)

If I have to be present and accounted for to vote, then so should they - for each and every vote! and if you cant do that then you get fired!

there are plenty of other hard working Americans who make way more physically demanding sacrifices for much much much less!

- - - part of me totally expected this though - rather than truly representing the citizens as they claim these people act more like a den of snakes hunting for a paycheck and a pat on the back...a den of self-serving snakes
