US Government Sucks

1. 2016 ELECTION STOLEN BY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Hillary Clinton received almost 3 million more votes than Donald Trump yet LOSER of the popular vote Trump was made President.

This isn’t Democracy, it’s the type of Rigged Government you find in Dictator Banana Republics.

Electoral College Should Be Abolished

The Electoral College has allowed two unpopular Republican candidates who received less popular votes in 2 elections during the past 16 years to become President; George W. Bush who lost the popular vote by almost 600,000 votes in the 2000 election and Donald Trump who lost the popular vote by 2.9 million. Neither of these incompetent people should have been president. More people voted against them than for them.

If we had a REAL democracy, the person who gets the most votes would be the winner. In every other country which has a democracy on this planet, the person who receives the most votes is the winner. The fact that we don’t elect our president by the most votes proves there is NO REAL DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED STATES.

The Electoral College should be abolished for Presidential Elections and the total vote should determine the winner.

If it weren’t for The UN-Democratic Electoral College which installed Trump as President and Gerrymandering which has allowed Republicans to gain majorities in the United States House of Representatives and State Legislators they would not be in control of our Government.

We wouldn’t be facing their passing laws to cause 26 million people to lose their health insurance, to lose Net Neutrality, Mandatory Sentences for non-violent drug offenses, De-funding of Planned Parenthood services and so many other destructive things.

 

2. 2000 ELECTION RIGGED

In the 2000 election, Jeb Bush promised to “Deliver Florida” to his brother as reported in numerous newspaper articles.

Secretary of State, Katherine Harris and Governor Jeb Bush had the motive and the means to make sure Florida’s decisive electoral votes were “delivered” to George W. Bush.

They accomplished this by illegally purging thousands of black voters off of the Florida voter rolls, ensuring an unfair advantage to George W. Bush, as shown in the above video.

 

Antonin Scalia and his conservative majority of 5 “justices” subverted democracy & engaged in partisan politics by stopping the 2000 election vote count. The above video explains the shocking details.

This caused George W. Bush to be installed as President. At the time the votes were stopped by the Supreme Court, there were only 154 votes separating Al Gore from George W. Bush.

With only 154 votes separating Al Gore from George W. Bush, it’s easy to see how thousands of black voters being purged off of the Florida voter rolls rigged the election for Bush.

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted an extensive public investigation of allegations of voting irregularities during the 2000 presidential election in Florida and recommended that the U.S. Department of Justice should “immediately initiate the litigation process against the governor” (Jeb Bush). Here’s a link to the report http://www.usccr.gov/pubs/vote2000/report/ch9.htm

The Theft of an election and installation of an illegitimate president is the one of worst possible crimes which a government could commit against it’s citizens… yet that is what our government perpetrated against the citizens of the United States, and NOTHING has been done about it.

The rigged election of George W. Bush caused the following events;

  • Installation of George W. Bush, a illegitimate president who was not elected to office by the American people
  • False claims about Weapons of Mass Destruction to justify the War against Iraq
  • Unprovoked, Unjustified War and Invasion of Iraq
  • Deaths of 4,475 US Troops
  • 32,331 US Troops wounded
  • Deaths of over 112,000 Iraqi Civilians
  • Debt of 10 Trillion dollars due to tax cuts and unpaid for wars
  • Firing of US Attorneys for political reasons
  • Appointment of Conservative Supreme Court Judges who destroyed the voting rights act of 1965
  • The creation of ISIS due to the invasion of Iraq, be-headings and people being burned alive
  • And much more…

None of these things would have happened were it not for the Jeb Bush Administration actions which helped brother George W. Bush to be installed as president.

Illegitimate President Bush is guilty of War Crimes by attacking Iraq, a country which had nothing to do with 9/11 or attacking the United States. He caused the deaths of over 4,000 American Troops and over 112,000 Iraqi civilians and nothing has been done about it. Details…

If we had a REAL Democracy, George W. Bush would NOT have been President because Gore received almost 600,000 more votes than Bush.

 

3. 2004 ELECTION RIGGED

Harvey Wasserman and Robert J. Fitrakis, who wrote a book “What Happened in Ohio: A Documentary Record of Theft And Fraud in the 2004 Election”, explained that the combination of computer hacking, ballot destruction, and the discrepancy between exit polling (which showed a big Kerry win in Ohio) and the “real” vote tabulation, all point to one answer: the Republicans stole the 2004 election.

2004-election

“A 6.7% shift in exit polls does not happen by chance. So we have irrefutable confirmation that what we were saying was true and that every piece of the puzzle in the Ohio 2004 election was flawed,” Wasserman said.

 

The Above video shows how Ohio Election Computers were hacked and how the man who oversaw the operation died mysteriously in a plane crash soon after giving a deposition.

 

4. SUPREME COURT STOLEN FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

The 2000 and 2016 elections caused the United States Supreme Court to be predominately Conservative (5 to 4) even though the MAJORITY of Americans voted for Democratic Presidents.

The rigged 2000 election allowed Bush to install two Conservative Supreme Court Justices. Those appointments should have been made by Al Gore who would have appointed two Liberal Justices.

Antonin Scalia’s seat SHOULD have been filed by President Obama, who had the support of the MAJORITY of Americans. The fact the Republicans were legally allowed to keep this seat open for almost a year until a Republican (Trump) became president is an OUTRAGE and more proof of how screwed up, lawless and unjust the US Government is.

Republican Bush’s two appointments and Trump’s equals a total of THREE Justices which should have been Liberal instead of Conservative. Three Liberal Justices would have given the Supreme Court a overwhelming Liberal Majority.

More people voted for Democrat Gore & Clinton so the “Will of the People” has been violated by the appointment of Conservative Justices, a fact you never hear discussed.

 

5. DISENFRANCHISEMENT OF VOTERS

To this very day, Republicans continue to pass laws which make it difficult for Minorities, Young People, the Elderly and Women to Vote. A Judge who has been voting for 49 years couldn’t vote because of repressive new Republican Texas Voter ID Laws in Texas.

 

6. REPUBLICAN RIGGING ELECTIONS BY GERRYMANDERING

Most Americans have never heard of Gerrymandering and are unaware that Republicans has rigged elections in their favor for years to come through gerrymandering.

Republicans injected $30 million, much of it from dark money contributions into state races in 2010, often targeting vulnerable blue state Democrats in races that wouldn’t otherwise draw a lot of national funding. The plan was called REDMAP (full story here).

gerrymandering3

When the midterm elections were done, Republicans had gained unilateral control of 11 state legislatures, upping their total to 25. Between then and the 2012 elections, GOP lawmakers in these states had largely undisputed power over redrawing congressional districts. This helped allow Republicans to maintain control of the House, even though Democrats received over 1 million more votes.

The Republican State Leadership Committee issued a memo stating “Controlling the redistricting process in these states would have the greatest impact on determining how both state legislative and congressional district boundaries would be drawn. Drawing new district lines in states with the most redistricting activity presented the opportunity to solidify conservative policymaking at the state level and maintain a Republican stronghold in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next decade.”

republican-gerrymandering

Through Gerrymandering, Republicans has made it almost impossible to be removed from office in some districts. Since they feel safe from being removed from office, they have no motivation to compromise. They are pursuing radical right wing agendas such as cutting assistance to the poor, cutting planned parenthood funding and passing anti-aborting “War on Women” legislation when the majority of Americans do not support these actions.

how-to-steel-an-election

Republicans are destroying democracy by Gerrymandering districts. As you can see from the graph above, a disproportionate number of Republicans were “elected” in relation to votes cast.

This is something you would expect in a Banana Dictator Republic, not the United States of America.

7.  Our Court System is Seriously Broken

We have a court system which doles out harsh prison sentences for drug offenses, allows murders to be found innocent and finds innocent people guilty.

Many people think of the United States as the “land of the free” when in fact, the US incarcerates more people than any other country in the world… even more than China.

With more people being incarcerated in the US than any other country on earth,  the US ought to be called “The Land of the Imprisoned”.

Privately run prisons have become cash-cow enterprises in which there are financial incentives to incarcerate as many people as possible.   There have been cases in which judges got kick-backs for incarcerating teenagers (more examples).   Privately run prisons is an example of Capitalism and our Justice System gone amuck.

 

8.  US GOVERNMENT HAS ENGAGED IN CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY

a. The US Government slaughtered Indians by the thousands, stole their land and forced them to relocate. Andrew Jackson helped gain Congressional passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830, which authorized the US Government to extinguish Native American title to lands in the Southeast. Details here…

b. The US Government sanctioned & made slavery legal for many years.

c. August 6, 1890 the United States sanctioned the first Death Penalty by the Electric Chair.  Electrocution is legalized torture and painful beyond description.  George Westinghouse comment about the first Electric Chair execution; “they would have done better using an axe,”and a witnessing reporter claimed that it was “an awful spectacle, far worse than hanging.”

Details at – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_chair

Even though it was clear that using electrocution was inhumain, cruel & unusual punishment, this horrible method of execution has continued for over 100 years and was recently re-instated by Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam –  Details here…

The fact that it wasn’t outlawed & expanded to other states and used for over 100 years proves what irresponsible idiots we have had running this country.

The Electric Chair should be abolished and made illegal once and for all.

9.  Legislative Branches of the US Government is a Mess

There should be term limits for every elected office. “Public Service” was never intended to be a lifetime career by our founding fathers.

10.  FBI, Attorney General’s Office and other law and Investigative Offices should not be under the control of the President

Trump firing FBI Director Jame Comey is a classic example of why the FBI and other Law enforcement & investigative divisions should not be under the control of the President.  This should have been fixed after Watergate when Nixon fired the special prosecutor Archibald Cox.  The fact that this hasn’t been fixed is more proof of what inept, stupid, irresponsible people we have running the US Government and how it is unlikely anything will change in the future.

11.  NO Lifetime Supreme Court Appointments

No one should be appointed to a job for life.  Supreme Court Appointments should be for no more than 8 years.

12.  The US Government is Bloated and Wastes Money

The number of agencies contained in the United States Federal Government is mind boggling.  Here’s a list of US Government Agencies.

It seems to me that at least 1/2 could be closed.   If we were to stop wasting money on these agencies and cut military spending by at least 1/2, there would be a lot more money to help the poor & homeless in this country.

13. The IRS

The IRS should be eliminated.  If we would close at least 1/2 of US Government Agencies, cut the Military budget by 1/2, use a sale tax or funding from States to fund the federal government, we would no longer need the IRS.

The US Government is bloated and major cuts need to me made.

14. UNITED STATES UNJUSTIFIED WARS AND INTERFERENCE IN OTHER COUNTRIES AFFAIRS

The US is constantly sticking it’s nose in other countries business and is constantly at war. Examples include…

  • Massacres in Vietnam https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Lai_Massacre
  • Shah of Iran coup d’état. In spring and summer 1953, the United States, through a covert operation of the CIA called Operation Ajax, conducted from the American Embassy in Tehran, helped organize a coup d’état to overthrow the Mossadeq government.  The United States CIA organized the coup which put the brutal Dictator “Shah of Iran” in power.
  • Over 100,000 Iraqi citizens killed by the US Government when Iraq had done nothing to deserve being attacked and invaded by the United States.  NONE of the 9/11 attackers came from Iraq

George Washington, in his Farewell Address stated why the United States should pursue a policy of isolationism:

“The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. Europe has a set of primary interests, which to us have none, or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves, by artificial ties, in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.”.

If we minded our own business like Switzerland we would be liked a lot better by people all over the world.  There would have been no Vietnam,  no 9/11, no Iraq and no Afghanistan.

After World War II, we should have brought all of our troops home and scaled down our military.  The United States should have heeded the advise and warning of President Dwight Eisenhower about the “Military Complex”.  Details here…

15. UNITED STATES WASTING TRILLIONS ON THE MILITARY

Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste

The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.

The United States spends more than Russia, China, the UK and 11 more countries COMBINED on our military.

NO ONE in congress has said anything about the Billions in Military Waste as reported in the above article “Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste

If it weren’t for the trillions of dollars wasted on the military and trillions spent on past failed wars such as Viet-Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan and others, we wouldn’t have a 20 Trillion Dollar debt. There would also be PLENTY of money for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Healthcare and our crumbling infrastructure.

Do you approve of such outrageous waste? Do you approve of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Healthcare being cut?

16. NO REPRESENTATION

In the state where I live, all of my State Representatives are Republican. One Senator is Republican, the other is Democrat and my House Representative is Republican.

The Republican representatives I’m stuck with does not represent me or care what I want… they ignore my calls and vote down party lines. An example is how Republican Representatives from congress voted to approve their Health Bill which will cause over 20 million people to lose their healthcare, even though thousands of people called their offices demanding they vote NO.

17. Political Parties Should Be Abolished

Having political parties polarizes and divides this country and it is leading to our destruction – “United we Stand… Divided we Fall”.

We are incredibly divided thanks to political parties.

Each person who runs for any office should run as an American citizen.   Eliminating political parties would make those who serve accountable only to the citizens they represent.  No more Billionaires, lobbyists and special interest buying elections.

18. US Government Responsible for 22 Year Old College Student, Otto Warmbier’s Death

Inside North Korea’s barbaric prisons where former inmate Otto Warmbier was tortured

The shocking footage comes as US student Otto Warmbier, who had been held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months, died just days after North Korea released him from captivity in a coma. The 22-year-old was arrested while visiting as a tourist and accused of trying to steal an item bearing a propaganda slogan, according to North Korean media.

It has been known for at least 50 years that North Korea engages in human rights abuses, torture and murder. It is therefore irresponsible of the United States Government to allow it’s citizen to travel to North Korea.

Otto Warmbier’s death could have been prevented if there had been a Travel Ban to North Korea, therefore the US Government is Responsible for his death.

Even after Otto Warmbier’s death, I haven’t heard anyone mention that a Travel Ban to North Korea should be immediately implemented.
