Obama Votes for Romney

America's electoral process is too corrupted to fix. Vote independent or stay home!

by Stephen Lendman

"Well, he might have," said Mark Crispin Miller on his blog site. He doesn't know. Nor do other voters. Corporate owned, programmed and manipulated electronic voting machines control things.

The Carter Center monitors elections globally. It refuses to do so in America because free, fair and open standards don't exist.

Jimmy Carter calls Venezuela's electoral process "the best in the world." He said America's is "one of the worst." He cited money power controlling them.

Others call US elections shams. They lack legitimacy. Nothing about them reflects democracy. Duopoly power controls things. People have no say. Half the electorate usually opts out for good reason.

Candidates are pre-selected. Key outcomes are predetermined. Media scoundrels suppress truth. Information voters most need goes unreported. Horse managed news and race journalism substitute.

Voter disenfranchisement is rife. Millions are peremptorily stricken from rolls. Violations prohibited under the 1965 Voting Rights Act are commonplace.

It prohibits states from imposing any "voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure (that may) deny or abridge the right of any citizen".to vote on account of race or color."

Intimidation not to vote or illegal deterrence happens often. Vote caging delists minorities for not answering "do not forward" registered mail sent to prior residences.

Millions of Americans can't vote because of past criminal records, no matter how minor. Millions more can't because they're incarcerated.

Elections are privatized. Corporate America runs them. Touchscreen electronic machines control voting. They're used to steal. It's easy. Manipulation controls things. 

Vetting isn't done. Verifiable receipts aren't provided. Votes cast for candidate A can count twice for candidate B. There's no way to check. 

Corporate run machines are inherently flawed. They're designed that way. They're used to steal.

Investigative journalist Greg Palast said "get ready for massive voter fraud." He expects 5.9 million "spoiled" or otherwise not counted votes.
