The dirty little secret of American elections is that we don’t count all the ballots—and we sure as hell don’t allow every citizen to vote. In total, no less than 5,872,857 ballots were cast and never counted in 2016.
In addition, a minimum of 1,982,071 voters were blocked from casting their ballots. That is a total of 7,854,928 votes and voters left uncounted.
But we can beat the vote rustlers. I explain how in my new book, How Trump Stole 2020, which is now available as an audiobook.
Don’t Steal Your Own Vote..
Information is a pain in the ass, a barking dog that won’t stop barking until you understand that Lassie wants you to save the kid in the frozen pond. (Loved that show!)
Because once you know for certain that there are ballot bandits singing in the basement, you’re obligated to take action. To make noise, make trouble, make a difference. And you’ll vote. If for no other reason than you won’t let the bastards steal your vote . . . and you won’t steal it from yourself by not voting. You’ll vote in person and early — perhaps today even . . . and you’ll share this, to encourage others to do so . . .
WARNING: If you haven’t mailed your ballot yet, drop it off in person or better yet, vote early in person.
