   Impress upon your children the truth that (voting) is a... duty of as solemn a nature as man can... perform; that a man may not innocently trifle with his vote; that every elector is a trustee as well for others as himself." Daniel Webster, 1840                    

 Third World Election Fraud- Right Here At Home

While the United States purports to be the guardian of free and fair elections the world over, here at home our elections system is utterly corrupted. From casting to  counting to  reporting of election results, the fix is in and we've allowed it to happen.

 Why is the third largest political party, the Constitution Party(www.constitutionparty.com) the only party encouraging support for the National Clean Elections Lawsuit (N-CEL)?  The suit, filed against ten states, New Hampshire, Iowa, Ohio, Florida, California, New York, Illinois, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas is calling attention to US voting procedures that are so secretive and potentially corruptible you'd expect these types of systems in  third world countries. Since 1988, all but a handful of the 3,142 counties in the US have delegated the "counting" process, done in secret, to several mega companies, Diebold, ES&S, Hart and Sequioa while all 50 secretaries of state have approved these systems. 
The Clean Elections lawsuit, in the process of expanding to all 50 states, charges that the use of any computer(direct-recording-electronic- or DRE) systems which obscure ballots from the people for any period of  time before a count is completed and the results are announced are unconstitutional.     Citizens for a Fair Vote Count (www.votefraud.org) and its plaintiffs in the Clean Elections Lawsuit are calling attention to the potential for vote fraud through electronic voting systems. According to the suit, the use of computer and machine election systems violates each citizen's right to vote, as defined at least twice by the Supreme Court of the United States. (In 1915 and 1964 the US Supreme Court ruled that a citizen's right to vote consists of two parts: 1) the right to cast a ballot; 2) the right to know that his ballot has been counted accurately.)

  Paper ballots that remain in plain sight are the only way we can make sure our votes are cast and counted honestly. 

  When credentialed computer scientists from prestigious institutions such as Princeton(itpolicy.princeton.edu/voting/ts-paper.pdf)  and Stanford((http://utahcountvotes.org/ddill.html) universities have proven time and again electronic voting systems can't be trusted, it's imperative we move to stop computer vote fraud immediately.  "Since ballots leave the sight of the people in the precinct before the votes are counted, breaking the chain of custody of the ballots, the illegality and unconstitutionality of electronic voting is clear", wrote Citizens for a Fair Vote Count's Jim Condit Jr.  To make matters worse, the private companies controlling the ballots then give the "results" of electronic voting, gathered through touch screens with no paper trail, directly to the Big TV Networks -ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, & FOX. Centralized counting and reporting has no place in a free country. While the United States government sends monitors to make sure third world countries conduct fair elections, the fox is guarding the ballot box hen house here at home.  Other political parties and all voters should support the National Clean Elections Lawsuit and demand accountability from state, county and federal elections officials. The two "big box" parties have nothing to gain and everything to lose if we clean up our elections process. Stalin was right when he said: "He who casts the vote decides nothing; he who counts the vote decides everything". Globalists in both parties want to make sure no one muscles in on their territory and easily corrupted electronic voting is one way to hang onto the power they've spent decades amassing.
