It occurs to me that things must getting pretty uncomfortable for any vendor or government official who is embroiled in the computerized voting industry. It is becoming very apparent that there is large-scale illegal activity by computerized voting machine companies. These kinds of illegal activities violate the most basic tenets of American Democracy.
These vendors and politicians are playing an end game with no solution to their dilemma in sight.
They can't exactly hand over an olive branch and say, "Y'know what? I tried to destroy this country, but now that the jig is up, do over?"
How can we help those who truly mean no harm? I imagine it is difficult for them to speak up.
How could anyone feel safe enough to step forward, given the recent civil rights assault on Stephen Heller by Diebold?
Stephen Heller is a brave, American whistle-blower, who did his civic and moral duty for his fellow citizens. He called attention to illegal activity by his employer, Diebold. Diebold is a major player in US elections, and as such has its own civic responsibility to be open with the voters of America, the "consumers" they serve.
Stephen Heller has been rewarded for his efforts with an onerous lawsuit and criminal charges.
How can we help those honest citizens, like Stephen Heller, who are stuck in a corrupt system.
IMO- give amnesty to people who are opposed to what is going on, but are too afraid to speak up. That won't protect them from the companies (or the government), but it will protect them from us.
Here's how to get started:
Let the s#@& roll UP-HILL as it deserves to!!!
The best way to serve this principle is to allow a policy of "PASS THE BUCK". Pass the buck means to pass the buck of blame to a superior, who in turn will pass it to his or her superior.
This will eventually get the buck of blame to the desk of none other than George Walker Bush.
In characteristically un-Trumanesque fashion, W will look for someone to pass it on to. But there won't be anyone.

FYI, right now the thing Heller needs most is your donations to help defray his legal costs. Click here to help him:
