January 19, 2012 in United States
As I said yesterday, I sensed something was amiss with the voting system years ago. I didn’t have the evidence to support my gut feeling so I kept voting.
I attempted to educate myself on the issues and vote in all the elections.
This became an exercise in futility as the multiple candidates in the various races would not express a solid opinion on the issues. Even if a candidate had an opinion prior to the election, it often changed afterwards.
I worked as a volunteer at the voting booths and noticed that most of the people registered to vote didn’t do so. I wondered why.
I watched my wife work as a precinct manager for some of the elections. Often, at the end of the day, the government employee she was supposed to connect with didn’t show up or was dreadfully late. We never knew if the precinct votes were counted because this was before results were available online and we never saw them reported by media outlets.
Therefore, when there were issues with the voting in the 2000 presidential election between Al Gore and George W. Bush, I wasn’t surprised that New Mexico was one of the three states where there were issues with the vote count. Florida grabbed the headlines because it was the swing state. The problems in New Mexico were just as severe as Florida and the “final” vote count changed several times in the weeks following the election.
Based on our experiences working the polls, I thought this was just incompetence.
While incompetence and apathy may have accounted for the voting inconsistencies in New Mexico, the story in Florida appeared to be something different. We may never know everything that happened there. The official story is that it took a Supreme Court decision to determine Bush was the winner in a state where his brother was the Governor.
I suspected the unofficial story was seedier.
Those experiences and observations caused me to unplug from the election process.
I decided to observe and get more information. I asked questions. I kept my antenna tuned into the topic. I didn’t find any information to help me feel better about voting so I didn’t.
Then, early in 2011, I heard a radio interview with Jesse Ventura. He was talking about his book, American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies that the Government Tells Us. Jesse is the former Governor of Minnesota. He surprised the world by winning that election because he wasn’t in the inner circle. In fact, Jesse is a former professional wrestler.
His win was one of the few times since World War II that someone outside of the inner circle of power had won such a major election.
In his book, he claims that the CIA questioned him on a regular basis while he was governor. He believes they were concerned about the power shift he represented.
Their questioning motivated him to look deeper at everything he thought he knew about the United States. It led him to write his book and produce his Conspiracy Theory show on TruTV, a cable network.
He used those forums to provide information he and his co-author uncovered from an investigation of the 2000, 2004, and 2008 elections. You may read it for yourself at this link.
In a nutshell, he explains how the 2000 and 2004 election results were manipulated. He tells how the person who created the software to make that manipulation possible had a turn of conscious and wouldn’t cooperate in the 2008 election.
He tells one more thing.
He describes how that whistleblower died mysteriously in a plane crash just a few weeks after the 2008 election.
If Mr. Ventura’s information is accurate, and I believe it is, voting in America is an exercise in futility because the elections are controlled behind the scenes.
Of course, that raises the question, “Who is controlling them?”
I think that’s a good question.
I have some information on that and I’ll share it starting tomorrow.
