Sibyl West: I have lived and worked outside the US for 28 years and have never been involved in American politics before but, when I returned in 2007, out of a sense of responsibility I became immersed in it. What an unanticipatedly dreadful disappointment it has been. The recent spectacle of the calumnious attacks on Herman Cain – a man who, as Walter E. Williams recently remarked, could have taken 25% of the black vote away from the Democrats and finished their party forever – was a shocking wake up for me. I witnessed the GOP turn their backs on him and throw away their best nuclear option to counteract the Democrat’s favorite weapon, namely the race card. I witnessed the so-called conservative bloggers (some of whom apparently cannot recognize a lie when they hear one) piling on along with the left. The Cain Train was doomed to destruction.
I found myself in the Matrix. The concept of free and fair elections in America seemed a total confabulation, the extended campaign season a cash-cranking windfall for the networks, consultants, pollsters and media, an exercise in deception for the people. For the American people think they are free because they get to vote, but the vote is sometimes rigged and always gamed by the influential Ruling Class of both feigned parties. We are seeing this now in the Virginia primary where the Republicans have instituted last minute rules that effectively winnow the field to exclude Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich – in the latter’s home state no less! Both Santorum and Bachmann have been marginalized, though they are finally giving Santorum the obligatory surge they gave each of the others. It is clear that the GOP has actually chosen Mitt Romney for us and they are not going to let us shake off that dog harness.
That’s why the citizen’s movement True the Vote holds out so much possibility for us to blast away the illusion and move back to the constitutional republic America is meant to be. This will be a long haul but, in the journey of 10,000 miles, election integrity is a crucial first step. Hats off to the courageous Engelbrecht and her boots on the ground collaborators! Please help their efforts if you can.

Fellow patriots, our right to free and fair elections is under attack.
Earlier this month when Attorney General Eric Holder visited Texas to denounce our state’s voter identification law he said, “Are we willing to allow this era—our era—to be remembered as the age when our nation’s proud tradition of expanding the franchise ended?”
If by “expanding the franchise” he means turning a blind eye to voter fraud, then yes. That’s exactly how I want our era to be remembered! Whether it’s leaving deceased voters on the rolls, allowing convicts to vote, or registering non-citizens, election fraud is an escalating problem in America.
That’s why True the Vote is working hard to restore the integrity of America’s elections. We’re recruiting and training poll watchers in all 50 states, but with primary season just days away, we urgently need your help to make sure no polling place is left unmanned and no registry unchecked.
True the Vote is just a few thousand dollars shy of reaching our online fundraising goal for December. Will you put us over the top by making an immediate donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more? Every dollar you are able to give to True the Vote before midnight on December 31, will go directly towards funding poll watcher training in early primary states.
It’s shocking that Attorney General Holder and his allies at ACORN, MoveOn.org and the United Nations insist that voter fraud does not exist—that the only thing unconstitutional about our elections is the attempt to require voters to show a picture ID to confirm registration prior to voting.
How can this be when we consistently hear stories of electoral fraud across the country?
Just a few days ago, four people were arrested in New York for forging absentee ballots in a 2009 primary election. At the beginning of December, officials in Wisconsin announced that petitions signed by Mickey Mouse and Adolph Hitler would be counted toward the total number needed to force a recall election of Governor Scott Walker.
And they want us to believe that our elections are free and fair?
Election fraud is alive and well, and that’s why True the Vote so urgently needs your help. So will you make a donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to support our efforts right away?
Time is running out to make sure we have the resources to place trained volunteer poll workers at every polling place for the primaries. So please act now to make the most generous gift you can afford to True the Vote before midnight on December 31.
Thank you in advance for your support. I wish you a happy and healthy New Year, free of election fraud.
President and Founder, True the Vote
P.S. Attorney General Holder will do everything in his power to prevent the 2012 elections from being free and fair. With so much at stake, are you willing to let him do this? Please help True the Vote in eradicating election fraud by recruiting and training volunteer poll watchers in every state by making the most generous contribution you can afford before midnight on December 31. We can’t afford to leave a single polling place unmanned or registry unchecked, and True the Vote is counting on you to make sure we don’t.
