It’s the Cheating: 2022 Election Observations

After seeing first hand how our elections are conducted, we have lost whatever hope we had that our elections accurately reflect the will of the people and are free of error and corruption.  We have been voting for 50 years but this November’s election was the first time we were election workers. We live in … Continue reading It’s the Cheating: 2022 Election Observations

Problems with Ranked Choice Voting (RCV)

A couple of years ago we were in Australia where a local explained their voting process. At the end of his lengthy explanation he said that he may not have not gotten all the details right, and that no one understands how it all works. I imagine someone must understand it, but the more I … Continue reading Problems with Ranked Choice Voting (RCV)

The Great Panicdemic of 2020

From the start something never seemed right about the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the things that were done are outlined below.

A Return to the Founder’s House of Representatives

Congress is a mess and we all know it. Much of the blame for the vast bureaucratic “swamp” in Washington falls on Congress. What no one agrees on is whether Congress can be fixed. If an attempt was made to fix it, how could it be done? Our Founders designed Congress and tampering with what … Continue reading A Return to the Founder’s House of Representatives

Big City Suicide and Rebirth

Once I thought that big cities, like Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago, Oakland, and Milwaukee, were run by people who really wanted to have great cities with balanced budgets, safe streets, and booming economies. I thought that their desire to tax heavily and spend more than they took in was intended somehow to support those goals, but … Continue reading Big City Suicide and Rebirth

It’s not about Proving Voter Fraud

No, it’s not about proving that there was fraud, it is about proving there was not. If our elected officials at the local, county and state levels cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt an election was an accurate reflection of the will of the people, then the results are meaningless. In elections, the burden of … Continue reading It’s not about Proving Voter Fraud

Time to Toss AMENDMENT XVII into History’s Dumpster 

The 17th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution changed the way Senators are selected. Originally Senators were appointed by the States. Now Senators are elected by the people of the State.
