The system is broken. Badly broken, and beyond repair. I repeat my hunch that our society is headed for breakup in a big way. The news I got today was just another reminder.
There's a video on Youtube showing people voting multiple times. No, not average citizens casting a half-dozen election year vote-fraud votes. These were legislators, casting ballots for other legislators who were absent at the time of the vote, making the laws that you and I live by. In one case, a legislator who was PRESENT had someone else cast a vote for him . . . while he was casting a vote for someone else!
Nota bene: It was against their OWN rules they made for themselves for legislators to vote for each other on the voting machines. This video shows them doing it. No, it shows ALL of them doing it. Either they do it or they let it happen. The Speaker of the House was supposed to be punishing this sort of thing but it didn't happen. The Speaker is supposed to make sure the rules are followed, but look how concerned they all are.
An extra kick in the stones is that you didn't hear about a wave of prosecutions after this video came out FOUR YEARS ago. One more kick for those of us from Texas, because it's happening here.
Legislators jogging around to beat each other to empty desks to push buttons.
TWO examples of fat guys pushing their own button, then the button on the desk next door, then the on a desk behind, and then a fourth button on the desk behind/next door!.
Then either complain to the Speaker, or shut the hell up and watch our society fall apart. I'm guessing the result is the same. This was in 2008. Who wants to bet there's a rule for ALL the legislatures in Texas forbidding this apparently-very-common multiple fraudulent voting activity?
