The American Election System

by Mark S. McGrew

At best, it is a sick joke. At worst a fraud and a coup against the American people.

As a teenager, I worked on an election campaign and quickly learned that I was wasting my time and energy. Seeing men pass out half pints of liquor to people in the small town voting shacks, to buy their votes made it apparent that votes can be rigged, bought and stolen.

Some group of people controls the United States of America and I have no idea who they are. But it is logical to assume that they do control our elections, our politicians, our News and our money system.

At thirteen years old, memorizing our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and the Amendments, I learned that our votes for President of the United States do not count. What determines who wins that office is 538 popularly elected representatives, deciding who they want in the White House. This is the Electoral College. They are supposed to cast their votes in support of our votes. But, there is no requirement that they do so. They are free to vote for whomever they want.

Then, there is the concern of whether or not voters are properly informed of the goals and desires of their candidate. In order to be informed it takes two things: 1. Truthful and full reporting of the candidate’s position. 2. Voters who take an interest in learning what their candidate stands for.

On both items, America fails.

Thomas Jefferson, one of the founders of this nation said, “Under our system, the people will get the kind of government they deserve”. Truer words were never spoken.

If the voters are truthfully informed, they get a good government. If the voters are not truthfully informed, and do nothing to correct that, then by default, they make a conscious choice to remain ignorant, and by doing so, they bring swindlers, liars, thieves and murderers to force us how to live. And that is exactly what they deserve for choosing to be ignorant.

Benjamin Franklyn, another of our founders said that the people who choose security over liberty, deserve neither. And history has shown that they get neither security or liberty.

Who is at fault for our corrupted election system? There is no question that it is the citizens themselves. They have been asleep at the wheel. And what is worse, when someone does stand up and try to educate them, they shout him down and scream, “Quit making trouble!”

America uses faulty electronic voting machines. It has been proven that the machines can be made to say whatever someone wants them to say. So much so, that in the 2000 Presidential elections, Al Gore running against George Bush got a minus 16,000 votes. How does someone get a “minus” 16,000 votes? Obviously the crook who rigged the machine rigged it too well.

It has been proven time and again by that a person can get into the voting computer in 10 seconds and change the votes in 90 seconds. They say that this can be done by someone sitting in their grandmother’s basement with a computer logged on to the internet.

These electronic voting machines tabulate 80% of American’s votes. When this ability to defraud the voters is shown to election officials, they order more machines.

Now we have, running for President, a man who will not submit proof that he is a United States citizen. A lawsuit was filed by an attorney, Mr. Phillip Berg, in United States District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to force Barrack Obama and the Democratic National Committee to show proof that Barrack Obama is in fact a citizen of this country. That suit, Berg vs. Obama, Civil Action No. 08-cv-4083, was accepted by the court and the defendant filed motions to dismiss, which the judge did not rule on, until after the defendant’s time to show proof had expired. The Obama side did not respond to admissions in the time allotted and under Federal law, the defendent would be deemed to have admitted that he was not a citizen of the United States. Rather than ruling on that fact, the judge dismissed the case, under the logic that a citizen of this country can not ask for proof, that a candidate for the highest office in America, is eligible to hold that office, under our Constitutional requirements.

This entire scenario can be seen at

The attorney who filed the suit, Phillip Berg asks, “This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?”

Using the judge’s reasoning, the Democratic Party can bring Osama Bin Laden to America and make him President. If Ivan the Terrible, or Atilla the Hun were still here, they also could run a campaign to be elected President of The United States of America. And our newscasters would give us a daily dose of polls showing them running neck and neck.

Major news outlets never breathed a whisper of this lawsuit that so greatly affects the future of America and in turn the entire population of this earth. But today, you can find the dismissal all over the major news.
