REALIZE! Good Democrats, please realize what is going on. Once you know the enemy, [View all]

you can fight.

The BOTS are yanking all our chains from e-mails to voting registrations. The media is BOT friendly too. They may not realize it but they are useful tools of the BOT brigade

Voters of all sides should get organized to protest their precincts especially in those areas where the numbers don't add up huge numbers of voter registrations have disappeared. This needs to be a well organized protest that doesn't let up until every suspect precinct has been proved safe and secure from BOT attacks.

As Democrats we need to help our DNC address this issue and stop wasting our valuable time and energy fighting it and fighting among ourselves. Protesting in the street is one thing, protesting a precinct is another and probably will result in a more effective outcome for us.

AND BY THIS, I MEAN WE HAVE TO KNOW, SCREEN, OUR ELECTION OFFICIALS AND THEIR STAFFS ALL OVER THE DAMN COUNTRY! We can no longer just register and hope to be able to vote. We must ensure that our registrations are secure and that our votes are counted. We have left this part of the voting system in the UNCHECKED hands of people who are poorly trained, poorly monitored, weak and vulnerable to intimidation by corrupt officials. This all involves getting more involved in LOCAL POLITICS AND BEING SURE TO KNOW WHO IS CONTROLLING YOUR POLLING AND VOTING PRECINCTS AND MAINTAINING OUR VOTER REGISTRATION RECORDS. NO ONE ELSE CAN DO THIS FOR US BUT US!!

This movement must be well organized and free of divisions within. The decisions about open or closed primaries is a totally different matter. It doesn't matter what kind of primary it is if our votes don't count or if many of us legally registered are unable to vote as in past elections. The past is past, going forward we must ensure that it is not prologue.
