Whose vote is it anyway?

I voted, but I’m very disappointed with the wording on the ballot, fraud, and extreme amount of disinformation during this election! Who decided that you could advertise for politicians and issues on Election Day, companies/corporations could donate money to campaigns, which takes ‘We the People’ out of the mix, signs didn’t need to be removed from your yard before Election Day, and it’s ok for other states to either put their crap on our ballot, and/or advertise for their crap??? This needs to stop, and the individuals need to have all of the say, not companies, corporations, politicians, or other countries, or we have lost our freedom, rights and our Constitution.

Know what you are voting for and then vote! Don’t vote for things that you really don’t understand because you can mess up the state for an extended period of time. You can leave blanks on the ballot. You are not required to mark a box for those things that you don’t know or don’t care about. You don’t need to vote according to the way that I think, but be careful of the old North Dakota ballot wording that ‘No, I Do want this and Yes I Don’t want this’ may be part of the continuing game that is applied to many of the measures. I didn’t notice that on the measures this time, but know that the terms ‘Shall’ and ‘Shall Not’ are political musts, and the politicians and constituents must follow those terms. Words like ‘Must’, ‘May’, ‘Could’, ‘Should’, ‘Can’, and any other terms beyond ‘Shall’ and ‘Shall Not’ only give guidance and are not required to be followed. Those other terms may cause law suits and enormous wastes of money for things that will end in failure for the public. Also, most of the measures on this Nov 2014 ballot are either vague and indecisive, or are missing many of the most important points needed to make an intelligent decision.
After reading this, get informed on both sides of the issues, though neither opinion or any of the commercials of any of these measures have much to do with the actual wording on the ballot, get out there and vote intelligently, or leave a blank where you can’t find intelligence in any of the available information. A last note on voting, DO NOT VOTE for the purpose of saying that you have won a particular vote (that’s the vote of someone who really doesn’t care how our state or nation turns out, and your winning vote may cause failure for everyone).

Two more things: mandatory voter ID’s are necessary to keep our freedom, and whether a state has multiple time zones or it’s a national election, NONE of the closed polling information should be let out until ALL polling places have closed on Election Day. For national elections, that means that no national election data can be released until Alaskan and Hawaiian polls are closed!

Good luck with making your decisions!

      Two days of silence sounds even better!! In the U.S., everyone is sick of the mudslinging ads from the first one that we see. Few actually say what they mean and the ones about measures say little if anything about what the actual ballot and/or Constitution will say. I always appreciate hearing from the rest of the world, but it’s a funny thing that I rarely hear anything from anyone at all.
      Thank You for your response!!!!!

        We still have mudslinging, but it doesn’t go for the 1 and a half year lead up period the American one appears to do.

        Here in Victoria, Australia we have an election coming up in 3 weeks, and I think advertising has only been happening for it for the last three weeks.

        National elections are a lot longer and quiet painful. But they do “attempt” a positive campaign, that is until somebody does a little mud slinging then it heads into the negative, which is unfortunate.

        Pleased I could add some insight to your blog 🙂
