It’s up to you: Your life -- our America -- is about your choices, OUR choices.
The Freedom Stolen
There is an essential principle of Freedom underlying the Constitution for the United States of America and its imperative oversight by We the People: It’s the principle of the public nature of America’s elections.
Without this principle, neither Liberty nor a democratic Republic can exist.
The principle of the public nature of elections requires every major step of the election process be conducted in public and subject to public examination – that is, “known by, or open to the knowledge of, all or most people.” Webster’s New Twentieth Century Dictionary, Second Edition.
The principle of public elections emerges from our Basic Law, the Constitution’s voting provisions: Article I, Section 2, Clause 1, Article I, Section 4, Clause 1 and the 17th Amendment.
Except for 45% of the voting precincts in New Hampshire, the essential steps in the voting process -- the recording and counting of the votes -- are conducted by machines and are no longer subject to public examination and observation by the voters, anywhere in America.
Again, computerized voting machines both record and count your votes, in secret using hidden, electronic devices and enigmatic, corporate-authored software algorithms, not subject to either public observation or examination.
Indeed, given that voting machines (both mechanical and electronic) record and count the votes in secret, is there any practical difference between state mandated voting machines; and an “election” where all the ballots cast are gathered and quickly moved to a non-public location to be “counted”, in secret, by unknown persons?
Are We the People to surrender our Public Elections, without a whimper?
Are We the People to simply trust that our votes have been both recorded and counted properly?
Are We the People to silently permit an unholy alliance of state election officials, voting machine vendors and transnational media corporations to seize the very foundation of America’s democratic system of representative government?
Are We the People to stand quietly aside as state officials and even the federal Judiciary attempt to deny us these Fundamental Rights?
Need we even ask these questions?
What We Just Did
Yesterday, an extraordinary event took place in Manhattan. An unwonted, unprecedented legal brief was filed at the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, exposing the legal fallacy and constitutional injuries posed by machine-based voting and demanding a return to fully public elections.

ACTA, NON VERBA
Deeds not words. If it’s unconstitutional, it is not to be tolerated, period.
Or, as they would say on the streets of Brooklyn, where I grew up, “Talk is Cheap.”
