More than half of the world’s population live under autocratic or partly free governments, denied full civil liberties and unable to freely participate in political life.

A country cannot be truly democratic until its citizens have the opportunity to choose their representatives through elections that are free and fair.

Critical development efforts cannot succeed without a legitimate and democratically elected government that is responsive and accountable to its citizens. Elections provide an important opportunity to advance democratization and encourage political liberalization. 

For an election to be free and fair, certain civil liberties, such as the freedoms of speech, association and assembly, are required.

SPREAD THE WORD, one of the most effective ways to take action is to raise awareness around these issues. And it won't cost you a dime. Simply repost this link into your social media accounts, leave in comments and email the link to your friends.

Vote Strike

By Christopher R Rice

The most important thing about a Vote Strike is the strike. A Vote Strike is not staying at home and withholding your vote. That accomplishes nothing. And voting has only ensured that one corrupt party or the other corrupt party holds onto power.

If you want a new strategy that will force fair and free elections it's a Vote Strike.


A Vote Strike is like any other (political) campaign: You must become your own media. The only way for a Vote Strike to work is with massive participation, so you must campaign. That means canvassing, going door to door, making phones calls, making/posting yard signs, street signs, holding a discussion/movie night with neighbors and more.

You can also post this URL: to blogs, comments, send to your email list and post to your social media accounts. Become your own media and promote it.

You only have until November then the real strike begins.


Everyone has the same fear: What if "the other side" doesn't participate?

"We have to go to the polls or the other side will and then they'll have a landslide victory for their candidate".

That is not possible. And here's why:

On election day you will be at the polls. You won't be voting. You'll be protesting and disrupting. Now it is illegal to protest at or block someone from polling/voting. That is not why we are there. This is a non-violent protest/strike. (Call your city to see how far away you must be to protest.)

Maybe, you can not take the day off to protest. Maybe you can only run to the polls after work and don't have time to campaign or protest.

That's okay too.

Whenever you show up at the polling place you will see one of two things:

1.) Either everyone will be outside protesting, in which case, you should join them. Or

2.) you will see people going in and voting. And if that is what you see then join them, we've lost, and you are free to:

1.) withhold your consent or

2.) go vote for the candidate of your choice.

Now suppose we succeed and we shut the elections down, then what? First, it does not mean that we are stuck with the current President. He can still leave in January as planned.

Because, even if the President and the Vice President were to die on Air Force One at the same time -heaven forbid, there is a chain of command laid out by the Constitution.

So it would be possible for the President and Vice President to leave office as scheduled. And then hold fair and free elections without corporate financing.

If you do not know how to hold elections without corporate financing let me tell you, that will be the easy part. There's many options. The hard part will be getting the word out by November. Because without the majority of the people participating, we won't succeed.


They can not legitimize a candidate with only five percent of the vote. We can make this election null and void, hold fair and free elections and then vote next November. But we must shut this election down.

Which means: we are no longer Republicans, we are no longer Democrats, Independents or non voters. It means we are no longer Libertarians, right or left. Today, we are all Americans, we stand as one people, one nation, without color, creed or division. We are one, we are America.

This strike is NOT meant to hurt the country in any way but to remove those who have.

God bless America.                

Here's the thing, imagine if Americans had held a general strike in 2008 as I was calling for and suppose we had taken back our voting process from the monied interest that still control it today. Imagine where we could be right now. Imagine US troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan and all those billions and billions of dollars would still be in our Treasury. Thousands of US soldiers would still be alive today. And we would've brought back democracy and a functioning Republic for our children. Instead we have given our children $20 trillion dollars worth of debt, a president who is by his own admissions a sexual predator and married to a prostitute, not to mention claims from victims about him being a pedophile, we also give our children WWIII.

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid and see what happens. Turn on your mighty nightly news and fill your head full of (Kool-Aid) lies. While the US government goes after WikiLeaks and then pay people like Bill O'Reiley $25 million a year for their BS. But, whatever you do, don't support independent alternative media, just let them starve.  And don't forget, God bless America.    

The President of the United States of America is a child molesting sexual predator married to a hooker

By Christopher R Rice

All of my life I have dreamed of something, something never comes but it always lead to nothing. In 2006 and 2008 I called for a boycott of US elections, I called it a VoteStrike, I published a website, articles and printed flyers at my own expense. I did this so that "we the people" could take back the voting process from big business and special interest.

The strike gained some momentum and was even supported by the US Border Patrol, Michael Moore, a Fire men's  association, several teachers, professors, student groups and veterans. That was until Barack Obama came along claiming his campaign contributors were all "small donors" and he would bring about sweeping "change." When in fact Obama's main campaign contributor was Goldman Sachs. And Obama's idea of sweeping change was to maintain the status quo. But Americans did not want to be bothered by the facts they just wanted to drink the Kool-Aid.  

Eight years later I was forced to watch the republicans fall for the same old song and dance that Obama gave the rank and file democrats. Trump wasn't even original about it, his wife stole Michelle Obama's (Kool-Aid) speech from Barack Obama's acceptance speech in '08 for Christ sake.

For some reason after watching Hillary get beat badly by some scrawny unknown Senator from Chicago who had never even been on a national stage, people somehow thought Hillary could beat Trump.
