Why Vote When Our Votes Really Don’t Count

2016 electionBy Catherine J. Frompovich

For years I never could understand why people said it was not worth voting and that things were rigged.  I found that to be anathema to both my studies and beliefs.  However, the last several general election cycles seem to have impressed upon me and others, apparently, that there may be some validation for such remarks.

Personally, I’m a registered Independent!  I’m not very impressed with party politics, since Democratic candidates usually are, or have been, Republicans who switched parties, and vice versa.  Current political shenanigans only leave me cold since the political agenda ‘de jour’ is about “political correctness” and memes restructuring society into a moral morass, in my opinion, rather than dealing with real issues that are pushing us into a Corporatocracy.  But that’s my opinion!

One of the more famous political party ‘fence jumpers’ was the late Ronald Reagan, the Republican 40th President of the USA, who started out as a registered Democrat and an FDR’s New Deal supporter in California.

Hillary Clinton—yes—the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee hopeful campaigned for Republican presidential campaigner Richard Nixon, and also worked for Barry Goldwater’s campaign in 1964.  Hillary even was elected president of Wellesley College’s Young Republican Club!

Leon Panetta joined the Nixon (R) administration as director of the Office of Civil Rights only later to become Bill Clinton’s (D) White House Chief of Staff!

Condoleezza Rice was a registered Democrat, who voted for Jimmy Carter (D) but switched and became a rather high ranking Republican in the George W Bush (R) administration.

Former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg was a lifelong Democrat, who became the Republican mayor of New York City.

The late Senator Arlen Spector represented the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate as a Republican from 1981 to 2009, but was a Democrat from 2009 to 2011.

Democratic political ‘gadfly’ Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was a Republican at one time too!

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post also is a political ‘fence jumper’.

Former Secretary of Labor Elizabeth Dole switched from being a Democrat in 1969, and eventually wound up being in Republican president Reagan’s administration and Cabinet.  [1]

This website lists 21 of the most famous political party switchers of all time.

Those who bang political party drums seem not to see the forest for the trees, in my opinion.  Party politics infighting and voting party lines really leave me to wonder, “Can’t anyone think outside the box he or she has pledged their loyalties and surrendered their minds to?”

All the above leads up to this overlooked theme regarding politics, elections, and voting: Party politics rule-making and rigging!  A friend recently emailed James Perloff’s Blog wherein Perloff tells the story of what happened to a 2012 alternate delegate at the Republican convention in Tampa, Florida, who was representing candidate Ron Paul.

Delegate Rachel McIntosh obviously had a very rude awakening about the dark, stinky underside belly of presidential campaign politics, conventions, and party national committees, which I think you will find equally disturbing after your read about her experiences here.

The upshot of McIntosh’s story is how Ron Paul was ‘railroaded’ at the convention and Mitt Romney wound up being the ‘favorite son’ and nominee of the Republican Party.  It would seem that the very same shenanigans are going on now and the RNC is between a rock and a hard place regarding Donald Trump’s popularity, including his majority of pledged delegates.

Frankly, what I don’t understand is how voters will allow party bosses to manipulate who becomes any party’s presidential nominee, instead of what the people decide.  What’s the use of holding caucuses, primaries, or even general elections, if it’s all rigged?  I think all that political BS boils down to whom they—the controllers—can control while in the White House.  The current president seems to be the ideal example.  Hillary will be the perfect follow through president to sink the U.S. ship of state, in my opinion.  However, with twelve FBI agents investigating her State Department emails, there’s a possibility that her derriere may wind up in ‘Quantico’ or somewhere like that, I offer.  Since most legal minds agree there are legal problems for Hillary, see what you think after this news analyst explains.

Hillary, like Barack Obama has, will rubber stamp the New World Order-Rockefeller-Rothschild-U.N. Agenda.  However, Ron Paul would not march to party bosses dictums or the New World Order contingent’s plans and dreams for our future.  Will The Donald or Bernie?

As Perloff says,

If you want to glimpse how far back this sort of power-brokering goes, read Ferdinand Lundberg’s 1937 classic America’s Sixty Families. He related how, a century ago, the rich were scorning voters and maneuvering their own choices into nominations, whether a Democrat like Woodrow Wilson in 1912 or a Republican like Herbert Hoover in 1928. [2]

So, shouldn’t we be asking, “What’s voting all about, and do our votes really count?”

This might be the best insurance against economic collapse (Ad)

To add to all the above, this article and video explain that computer programmers code computers to rig elections!  That, I find totally reprehensible.  What’s the use of voting?

This YouTube video, wherein a computer programmer, Clinton Eugene Curtis, under oath in Florida says that in October of 2000 he was asked to write a program to rig elections; that “would flip the vote 51-49”; and confirmed that there is “vote rigging software.”  His testimony will make you cringe when you hear him say, “…to control the votes in South Florida.”  The 2000 presidential election is the one the U.S. Supreme Court decided!  What happened to the voters’ votes?

Can, or will, that happen again, especially in 2016?

    The act of voting makes one complicit with the violence of the state. Stop voting, it only encourages violence.

    • OldeSoul

      The act of voting also acts as consent to be ruled by criminals and psychopaths.

  • You can’t vote in the U.S. without enjoining yourself, the living being, to the corporate administrative system (U.S. Corp, etc.) and putting yourself under its jurisdiction. The top checkbox on the California voter reg form says “I am a United States citizen.” That’s a 14th Amendment citizen, not a citizen of one of the sovereign states of the union. This essentially restricts us to accepting only the “rights and responsibilities” allowed us by the system. This is all hidden.

    • Randy

      Yes, BRT, it IS all hidden from our normal view!! It is only by diligent searching for the truth that we can find and then see the truth of the matter, that Joseph Stalin was 100% correct about the ones who count the votes as being of any importance, not the ones who vote. Since I read the book Votescam in 1994, I have been trying to tell people about the futility of voting, but everyone is so damn addicted to the Kool-Aid of politics, that they can’t bear even the thought of stopping!

      Also, since hiding known material facts is a form of fraud, THERE is your exit point from The Matrix!! Years ago I sent letters to the Registrar of Voters demanding that my name be removed form the voter rolls due to fraud on the part of the government, and I never hear from them for “jury” duty or anything political.

      You might want to read my latest paper called Pulling the Teeth Out of the Mouth of the Legal System. In short, all that needs to be done is to get into the public records that government agents commit fraud all of the time and no one has an obligation to be defrauded under any circumstances.

    “I’m not very impressed with party politics…”

    The two party system is the very thing that our framers and forefathers warned us to NEVER allow. The US Constitution does not require them. They are the “factions” they warned us about.

    George Washington: “However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”

    George Washington,farewell presidential speech: ‘The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more
    formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty. Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind, (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight,) the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
    It serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.”

    Pretty wise words, and tell me where none of the things Washington warned us about concerning “factions” (political parties) have not come into being here today.

    John Adams: “Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.”

    John Adams: “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”

    You might want to consider these words by Michael LeMieux, and then read the US Constitution a few times as it is a short document since it does NOT delegate very many authorities to those that serve within the federal government: “The Constitution has very little to do with the American citizen. It was written to establish a Federal Government and to place the boundaries by which that government would operate. The constitution was never designed to provide or enumerate the rights of the citizens but to restrain the federal government from meddling in state and ultimately citizen affairs.”

    It is important to understand that Election Fraud is Treason against the American people, the USA, and our legitimate government. Yea, treason because they are working to destroy our nation from within, shut up the voice of the people. They have let foreign entities and governments into our elections, even to having the UN military on US grounds to see that the last couple of presidential elections went according to plan.

    What? You did not notice them? How could anyone NOT notice that they are treating the American people like they have been treating the people of other nations that have been unlawfully and illegally invaded in our name. The US Constitution tell us the remedy, why not read it and learn what it is?

  • See You On The Otherside

    Thank God I’m only passing through this dog and pony show life and am not committed to eternal damnation here. When my time is up hopefully I’ll never be here again so if I don’t take it as serious as the rest of you forgive me because I don’t care now or after I leave here what happens on earth. Good Luck to your endeavor in changing the unchangeable .

  • John

    Always Vote!! It substantiates your right to sue the government about voter fraud. Always work to eliminate computers from the election process. There should be a paper verification of every vote cast. This would help make recounts truthful. As for political parties, get involved. Encourage like minded friends to get involved. Take over district and/or county parties; then state parties. You must be involved in this country’s political processes, or you will lose your country and all of its constitutional freedoms. There is no free lunch. Freedom is not a spectator sport.

    • OldeSoul

      There is a big difference between not voting because someone is too lazy and not voting because they do not support an illegal, fraudulent system and do not consent to be ruled by murderers, liars and psychopaths. It means withdrawing consent so the system can finally fall on its sword and be rebuilt. Not voting is a vote of No Confidence and that accomplishes a lot more than “Which lesser of two evils shall I endorse so they can continue to destroy my country?” Not voting means you recognize you’re being lied to constantly by every candidate about every important matter and you refuse to endorse intentional deception. Not voting is a declaration of independence and personal sovereignty. I don’t care what pollsters and talking heads and politicians say or believe about my choice to not vote, it only matters that I conscientiously object and do not give my consent to wars, injustice, empire-building, and atrocities committed by those I helped to put into positions of power with my vote. Not voting is taking responsibility out of the hands of power hungry psychopaths and taking it back yourself.

      • Even if NOBODY did vote one day, the corrupt State will, through it’s propaganda device – the MSM, scream that millions did vote and the majority agreed with the policies of the State.
        .

        • OldeSoul

          Quite true, Croco. And it’s time we stopped letting the MSM, which is really just another corrupt aspect of government, determine our fate. It only matters what is in our hearts. This is why we have lost our way. Each of us must say “No more,” and then the system will crumble. We are that powerful we just don’t believe it… yet.

      • John

        Hogwash! Nonsense!!
        To not vote is to abdicate your responsibilities of your citizenship. To not vote is to forsake your sovereignty. As a citizen, you have an obligation and duty to defend the constitution and its Bill of Rights for yourself, your neighbors, and your community. There are usually more than one race on a ballot. If you prefer to forsake one race, at least vote in the others and on any ballot issues. This is not a child’s game. As a mature adult, you cannot just pick up your marbles and go home. You are obligated to stay in the fight for the duration.

        Your last line seems to imply that you think that by not voting, you cannot be held accountable for the sins of your nation. Sorry, as long as you are a citizen, you can be held accountable for the sins o your country. As a non-voting citizen, you are an irresponsible citizen who may be held more accountable. If you want to be free of the responsibilities and duties of a US citizen, I suggest you emigrate and renounce your US citizenship.

        • OldeSoul

          And you are completely irresponsible for not knowing that elections are rigged, all of them. I’ve been voting all my life, very involved in politics for going on 50 years now, so I don’t need any lectures from you. One day I woke up and realized the system is rigged so thoroughly and completely that it doesn’t matter who I vote for, the winner has already been picked by the men who own the voting machines. It’s a fact, Jack. I’ve seen how they do it.

          There’s that issue, plus I still haven’t gotten over the mortification of being duped into voting for Obama. I feel personal responsibility for what he has done while in office. Voting carries the responsibility of outcomes, one you apparently don’t give a hoot about so long as you line up and pick the best liar of the group.

          You think I should emigrate for not agreeing with you and standing up for what I believe in? Go pound dirt.

  • ddearborn

    Hmmm
    It is a complete coincidence that a lower voter turn out will hurt Donald Trump in the remaining primaries as well as the general election in November. Don’t pay any attention what so ever to the fact that Donald Trump has won convincingly in primaries were there was record turnout GOP turnout………….

  • Guillotine_ready

    Instead of those little stupid I voted stickers I like the I do not consent ones. If voting was going to make a real difference, it would be outlawed today.

  • nimbii

    Mark Twain once said: If voting made a difference they wouldn’t let us do it.

    Or something to that effect.

  • Jimmy Yost

    I think it’s all for show to make the public think there’s a real election going on. I think all the ‘candidates’ are actors who recite scripts that are written for them by the think tanks scientists, and all of the back and forth name-calling they do is part of it. Let’s face it… they’re all actors in the employ of the Zionists, whether ‘in office’ or ‘running for office.’ And I’m positive that most of the highly visible political commentators (e.g. Alex Jones, Bill O’ Reilly, Shawn Hannity, Megan Kelly, Bro. Nathaniel, Ryan Dawson, Mark Dice, Jeff Rense, Michael Rivero, et al) are quislings who are hired by the Zionists to keep the ploy in motion in order to keep the public confused distracted.

  • gweneth

    I am all in with you.Here is a way to keep the election machines legitimate (if you approve of it) :Each voter would make up an eight character unique userid and password for the login.cast yer vote.then get a receipt (date and time stamped and make sure the receipt represents yer vote)then the vote counters may count and publish (on a secure website) all votes with the unique userid (the owner would be the only person to know which is his or her id).They must publish the votes cast – as this would legitimize to all voters that a vote cast is a vote counted.The voter then looks for this id (at the published sight) and ensure the votes are accurate.
    Best of Luck
    (old school paper was whole lot more trust worthy.)
