What  is  a  national  Vote  Strike?

It  is  you  withdrawing  your  consent  to  be  governed  by  the  inept  &  corrupt  Republican  &  Democratic  parties.

This  web  site  www.votestrike.com   was  created  for/by  you,  the  voters  (Republicans/Democrats/Red  States/Blue  States)  because  whichever  party  you  belong  to  they  have  failed  you. 

We  the  people  (the  voters)  find  ourselves  in  a  very  difficult  position.  Local  governments  are  forced  to  do  the  job  of  the  federal  government.  From  natural  disaster  relief,  border  security,  rampant  illegal  immigration,  food  safety,  inadequate  bridges,  dams  &  hiways,  disease  epidemic  caused  in  part  by  our  Farm  bill,  drug  epidemic  due  in  part  to  lax  border  security,  mental  health  care  crises,  some  local  governments  (16  states)  are  even  combating  global  warming  because  the  federal  government  isn't  doing  its  job- under  Republican  or  Democratic  administations!  The  problems  are  endless,  some  states  are  facing  a  drinking  water  shortage,  drop-outs  &  low  education  levels  are  problems  that  just  keep  right  on  giving.  Causing  a  financial  burden  on  local  governments  so  that  even  local  services  have  to  be  cut.

VOTING  out  one  party  &  replacing  them  with  the  other  party  has  not  worked  in  the  Congress  or  the  Senate.  Democrats  promising  to  clean  up  pork  &  earmarks  were  elected  &  yet  last  years  (2007),  spending  bills  contained  11,900  pork  barrel  projects.  At  a  cost  to  tax-payers  of  over  $20  billion.  Now  we’re  being  asked  to  choose  between  a  Republican/Democrat  as  our  next  president.

Don't  be  fooled  again:
Candidates  are  forced  to  raise  large  sums  of  money  each  election. ( Obama's campaign reported raising a staggering $32 million in January, cash aplenty to advertise all through the nearly two dozen upcoming races from coast to coast — and contests beyond. Clinton's campaign reported raising $26.8 million from October through December, the most recent period that she reported.) What  do  corporate  donors  get  for  their  money?  They  get  to set  our  Energy  policy,  our  Immigration  policy,  our  Trade  policies.  Why  else  has  there  been  no  effort  to  secure  our  borders  or  lower  our  dependence  on  foreign  oil  since  9/11?

Democrats  &  Republicans  from  the  president  down  are  guilty  of  putting  this  nations  security  at  risk.  And  for  what?  Cheap  foreign  labor.  Sen.  John  McCain’s  Comprehensive  Immigration  Reform  bill  was  wrote  by  corporate  lobbyist  to  subvert  the  Constitution  &  make  legal  what  is  now  illegal.  At  a  cost  to  this  nations  security.  Crooks  like  these  (Sen.s  Barack  Obama  &  Hillary  Clinton  both  signed  &  still  support  this  bill  as  well  as  the  Z-Visa)  should  be  ran  out  of  town.  Instead  their  running  for  president.

Both  parties  are  promising  change.  We  hear  it  every  4  years.  But  the  truth  is  they  have  almost  the  same  financial  backers  &  there’s  lobbyist  bribing  whichever  party  takes  office  (there's  35,000  lobbyist  in  Washington).

We  need  REAL  CHANGE!  The  kind  of  change  that  can  only  come  from  new  parties  &  publicly  funded  elections.  Because  as  long  as  Big  Oil  can  write  our  Energy  policy,  we’ll  always  be  dependent  on  foreign  oil.  As  long  as  China  can  manipulate  our  Trade  policies  we’ll  always  have  record  Trade  deficits.   There  is  a  reason  why  nothing  gets  fixed  in  Washington. 
REAL  CHANGE  has  to  come  from  the  bottom  up.

Vote  Strike  does  not  support  any  candidates  or  political  parties.  Vote  Strikes  goals  are:  1.  end  the  two-party  system.  2.  end  corporate  control  of  our  politicians  by  3.  creating   multi-party  elections  that  are  publicly  funded.

Whether you call it the world financial structure, the U.S. culture of waste, or the ability of the common man to make a decent living, the system is broken. It's time for the common man to go on strike. Join or support the March on Washingon (more...)
