Why You Can't Vote Them Out

By: mac Sperry

Pt. 1: First, You Get A Vote

A Real Vote

You've heard it before. They just nonchalantly say: "Well, why don't you just vote them out?" But they don't understand, as you are about to, that the reason you can't vote them "out", is because you probably have never actually voted them "in."

The following trilogy of articles presents new evidence that the apparatus to steal the U.S. citizen vote not only exists, but has been with us since at least the 1880's. Part 1 deals with its key element, the introduction of vote secrecy in the mid 1800s. Vote secrecy still remains in place and operative today, over 130 years later.

Wanna' Know A Secret?

The Vote Hasn't Always Been "Secret"!

Prior to the secret vote and for the better part of the first 100 years, voting in the U.S. was conducted viva voce, or by "voice vote". The rolls were called, voters stepped forward and anyone within hearing distance could, in parallel with the registrar, witness and notate an individuals vote. The results were rightfully considered irrefutable, beyond dispute.

Then, before the Civil War, some states began to experiment with various kinds of "ballots", that brought with them confidentiality at the expense of witness based verification. Later during the 1880s, the confidential vote formally morphed into the "secret ballot", a ballot of enhanced secrecy which is sometimes called the "Australian ballot" where it first appeared.

The secret ballot is still with us today. I claim and will provide compelling evidence, that it was the subtle though lethal effect of confidentiality (secrecy), that has been the primary enabling characteristic of vote fraud over the last 130 years.

Vote Secrecy Doesn't Eliminate Vote Fraud

It Enables It
