Vote For "None Of The Above"!
By David A. McElroy

Are you sick and tired of the false choices offered at the polls? Do you refuse to vote for the "lesser of two evils"?  Do you feel your voice is not heard, your vote does not count in an election system rife with corruption, intimidation, and vote fraud? Do you really want to vote for "None of the above"? 

I recommend we go to the polls and sign in at the registration table as a voter. But in doing so, add a little note stating you refuse to participate in a system you have no confidence in.  Speak for yourself. Use ink and this vote of "no confidence" in the election system will be a part of the public record. They can't dispose of the sheets of voters' registered signatures. Then politely explain to the election workers that you do not intend to cast a vote in a system of false choices corrupt beyond redemption.  You should speak openly within earshot of other voters, but not be loud or disruptive explaining your action. Then just leave, hoping you don't get bodily thrown out the door.

Rev. DeForest Soaries resigned as Chairman of the US Elections Assistance Commission, as of April 30, 2005, after being appointed by President George W. Bush.  Soaries held a press conference to announce that he could not be associated with an election system that was "ripe for stealing elections and for fraud." He characterized the election system as being a "charade" and a "travesty".  Of course, mainstream media did not broadcast or publish the videotaped statements Soaries made in his indignant resignation.  Read his story on the front page of the Oct. 2006 Brad Blog.  Are things any better under Obama?

You should recall testimony by electronics engineers that the electronic voting machines are designed to facilitate remote-control vote rigging via a perpetrator's cell phone. They even demonstrated how this was done.  See http://www.TomFlocco.com for Flocco's detailed Oct. 30, 2002, expose, "Hacking the Presidency". Read Beverly Harris' "Black Box Voting: Tampering in the 21st Century", if you need references documenting the election frauds.

If enough of us register our vote of "no confidence" at the polls, the message should get through loud and clear to the electioneers and politicians.  Let's deploy this means of showing them what happens when they throw an election and nobody chooses to vote! Let's vote against the system and register the fact that we won't participate in the fraud! Let's make it clear that we do not consent to be governed by either wing of the big bird of prey feeding on we the people.  Reject the false promises of Dempublicans and the Repocrats and throw a monkey wrench into the turnstile of tyranny posing as democracy. Vote "no confidence" and vote "none of the above" by registering but NOT VOTING!
