Since USA’s non-Whites voting beginnings, every conceivable measure has been used to prevent or interfere with their citizens right to vote. First were overt and tempered crude voter intimidations—then joined by discriminatory literacy tests, poll taxes, and physical violence—then embracing or supplanted by Cointelpro methods; police cars passing slowly and repeatedly by homes of Black “troublemakers”; rocks thrown through house windows; and schemes to suppress Black voting rights. Specifics include placing “vote challengers” in Kentucky’s Black American precincts; the use of armed, plainclothes officers from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to question elderly Black voters in Orlando as part of a state investigation of voting irregularities; the barring of Native Americans from voting in South Dakota after they were challenged to provide photo identification– despite not required by state or federal law. African, Latino, Asian, and Native Americans were disproportionately disenfranchised in the 2000 federal elections. Needless to say, thorough out history, authorities routinely declined to pursue cases brought against White residents by Black residents. When Senator Obama was campaigning for president of the USA, my story concerned varied obstacles in the transfer of my official voting records from where I had formerly lived in one county to a location 5 miles away into another county. Following that move there was nothing I could do–by way of phone calls, emails, letters, and visiting various facilities–to be able to get re-registered to vote. But with this election, I simply had to vote. On the advice of a friend, I went to the voter’s registration office, only to discover that the form (obtained from the internet) I had sent in six weeks prior was not put into the system. One of the problems was their disbelief that my present location was part of their county. My certainty came because I pay taxes in that county, even for things I do not get (e.g. water and sewage). Finally and fortunately, a “special check” print-out showed me to be correct.
But they still would not allow me to vote—apparently because it did not “SEEM” right to them. Thus, it was necessary for me to go to court. I took the form to the court house (just before it closed at 4:00 pm) and went through the same problems of incompetence with the clerk and her supervisor–both loudly declaring that I was in the wrong county. Eventually, after getting to the boss of the supervisor and giving him the “proof” print-out, he accepted that. Because I had spent so much time (the employees had gone home for the day), he said he would save me from having to come back the following day by prevailing on the judge to sign the petition right then. That took an hour but I was able to get back to the registration office in time to vote. Of course, I am convinced my vote alone ensured Mr. Obama’s victory. A first reason for going to all this trouble in order to resume being able to vote is because this is a piece of power available to me in dealing with a system whereby Lobbyists “buy” politicians who write rules that govern the state or the nation. Lobbyists are a group representing persons or organizations with a common interest to have things go solely in their favor. This engagement in corruption involves Lobbyist influencing the votes of legislators intended for the passage of a bill or other measures directly opposed to the best interest of poor and Colored Peoples.
A second reason is from my personal awareness and research into Black Americans clearly demonstrated history of voting obstructions—and what they still go through–in order to vote. Every loss, lack, and obstruction that Supernatural Non-Rationals and their terribly fearful minds stay up late at nights to conceive of is carefully planned to enhance, maintain, defend, and protect their keystone issue—i.e. do whatever it takes to maintain their White domination gained and kept by means of the GUN. Vital to this form of “Democracy” at work is to make it as tough as possible for their feigned enemies. To control opposition voting soothes their overwhelming insecurities of interferences with their White Privileges + enable continuance of controls over Colored Americans and all things important to their lives–like jobs, money, education, housing, cultural achievements, health, law and order and whatever prevents arising above the status quo they are in. To avoid interference with established patterns of governmental corruption being legal, President Obama said: "Republicans want to ‘bamboozle’ voters"–to confuse, frustrate, or throw one off thoroughly or completely.” jabaileymd.com
