How We the People Can Protect the Vote in 2020 – Making Sure Every Vote Counts, and Every Vote is Counted

Aired 8 September 2020 – 5:00 PM EDT

Interview with Author and Activist Harvey Wasserman

“Those new ‘smart’ voting machines are so smart, they don’t even need voters.” — Swami Beyondananda



One of the characteristics of sociopathic conmen is that they will boldly and blatantly tell you ahead of time what they intend to do. Another characteristic is that they project their own evil intentions on to others. So it should come as no surprise to those who recognize Donald Trump as the sociopathogen he is, that he has already announced he will not accept the results of the election, if they are not to his liking. And he and his Vichy Republican enablers have continued to accuse the DEMOCRATS of voting fraud – as they have done everything in their abusive power to disenfranchise potential Democrat voters.

Trump knows – as Josef Goebbels knew before him – that if you repeat a lie often enough it will begin to sound like the truth.

By the way, I offer my assessment of Donald Trump not as a partisan, but as a student of meta-politics my entire adult life. I know what I am seeing, and as the legendary baseball umpire Bill Klem said, “I call ‘em as I see ‘em.” Or to quote Swami Beyondananda, “If it quacks like a duck and steps like a goose, there is something fowl afoot.”

Given this – new word – shituation, what do we do about it?

Those who want to call forth a sane and sacred center to preserve government of, by and for the people — what can we do in the next two months to make sure everyone who wants to vote does vote, and those votes are counted?
