STOP THE PRESSES
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”.
In Pennsylvania, we are at stage three of Gandhi’s maxim. At the 59th minute of the eleventh hour, I received word that the Bucks County Pennsylvania newspaper, The Intelligencer, had today published a lengthy editorial that addresses directly, the circumstance in Bucks County, to include the flawed decision making of two of the three county commissioners. Bottom line? The Intelligencer is taking a stand and demanding that the Commissioners revisit their decision of January 6, 2008.
Stay tuned for this one as the sparks continue to fly as the Coalition for Voting Integrity and Voice of the Voters radio continue to pressure and educate those reluctant to do the right thing.
THE COPPERFIELD EFFECT
Americas elected and appointed officialdom along with the providers of the multitudes of electronic voting mechanisms in use nationwide have much in common with magician David Copperfield. And like Copperfield, the source and mechanisms of their magic are closely held secrets.
Voting in America has become more akin to a magic act than a predictable democratic process. Professional voting hucksters, like circus barkers, lure the innocent, naïve, and stupid with fancy promises of quick easy “modern” voting when using their “state of the art“(a sad state it is) computer based voting machines. Yeah, and P.T. Barnum, knowing human nature, said it best, “There’s a sucker born every minute”.
