Your vote is just a POLL so they can fudge the numbers and nothing more; the presidential election is an indirect vote, the political parties choose
electors, these electors vote... or do they? Consider the following carefully...

Did you catch that? The electors in the above states MUST vote for a specific candidate.
What about those state laws? O.K.;... my home
North Carolina General Statutes > Chapter 163 > Article 18 > § 163-212 - Penalty for failure of presidential elector to attend and vote Current
as of: 2010 Any presidential elector having previously signified his consent to serve as such, who fails to attend and vote for the candidate of
the political party which nominated such elector, for President and Vice-President of the United States at the time and place directed in Gen.
Stat. 163-210 (except in case of sickness or other unavoidable accident) shall forfeit and pay to the State five hundred dollars ($500.00), to be
recovered by the Attorney General in the Superior Court of Wake County. In addition to such forfeiture, refusal or failure to vote for the
candidates of the political party which nominated such elector shall constitute a resignation from the office of elector, his vote shall not be
recorded, and the remaining electors shall forthwith fill such vacancy as hereinbefore provided. The clear proceeds of forfeitures provided for
in this section shall be remitted to the Civil Penalty and Forfeiture Fund in accordance with Gen. Stat. 115C-457.2.
What about those "Party Pledge" states like Alabama?
Section 17-14-32 - Names on ballots; vote for candidate counted as vote for designated electors. The names of all candidates for President and
Vice President who are nominated as provided in this chapter shall be printed on the official ballots under the emblem of their respective political
parties, as filed in the office of the Secretary of State of Alabama. The names of the electors of the candidates for President and Vice President
shall not be printed upon the ballots. A vote for a candidate for President or Vice President shall be counted as a vote for the electors of the
political party or independent body by which such candidates were named, as listed on the certificate of nomination or nominating petition.
How about that? "Party Pledge" electors don't even get the candidates on the ballot! Just the political party emblem... How sad is this? Not only
does your vote not count, the electors votes don't really count either... they are legally obligated to vote for who the hell they are told to vote
for, or handed a ballot with the party emblem on it and simply drop it in the box... it isn't oh most people voted for Joe Bob, so you represent all
of them in your district and vote for Joe Bob... just how sorry is election day? 27 that's twenty-seven states where electors are told exactly who to
vote for, and if they don't... they boot them, fine them, and then say next elector in line til one does the dirty deed.
How can it get any worse? Oh it gets worse...
No Legal Requirement Electors in these States are not bound by State Law to cast their vote for a specific candidate:
14. NEW HAMPSHIRE
15. NEW JERSEY
16. NEW YORK
17. NORTH DAKOTA
19. RHODE ISLAND
20. SOUTH DAKOTA
24. WEST VIRGINIA
These 24 states, don't have a "required vote" for the elector like the last 27... so you say hey democracy! At least it is somewhere... um not
that's 24 votes where the elector can vote for whomever they want too, whole state polls Democrat electors say "Nah I like the Republicans" so
that's who I am voting for, or "Well, since this corporation paid me to use my elector vote for Billy Bob instead of Joe Bob... that's who I am
going with." So, I hope when the next election buzz starts circulating... you can maintain your sanity hell, I hope you can maintain it now... feel
free to check your states law as list above... if you even have one. I am just reporting straight from the horses mouth, check the links...
*Source for state lists*
One would think election laws don't change often, but they are always revising them to better rig the game... so who they want is in there.
Republican, Democrat, 3rd party? Morals?... the "issues" none of those matter, when it comes to rigged politics, they are just a game to keep us
arguing amongst ourselves, to shift focus off of them... a simple shell game of divide and conquer.
This thread was written for educational purposes, using sources directly, from federal and state governments. They have been trying to take over local
next with Super Pacs... do not let them do it! I still believe in use the system to change the system, the very small say we do have in local
politics? Use it before you lose it.
Thank you for reading.
