Local Offices

Locally, you may have to drive to your County offices or City Hall to learn the facts. I think its the right thing to do and it's worth it to have 100% better City government next year. Ask to see the campaign contribution statements. Then look at the candidates' records online to be an informed voter. Anything less, is irresponsible. Relying on the Major Media is also irresponsible

How Elections are rigged?

Sometimes people think that an election is too important to be run honestly. Therefore, elections are rigged in many ways. The larger the election, the more money involved and the more opportunity for rigging occurs. But don't think that local elections are any . Unfortunately, people tend to pay far less attention to them. Here are some links so you can become more wary as a voter.

Michael Patrick Murphy Recommends registering as an Independent in most elections. Don't give the major parties more money and power by your endorsement.

George Washington warned against the formation of political parties. Today, the dominant parties have become corrupt. I recommend against joining political parties. However, I believe that the Libertarian Party is the healthiest option for believers in limited government. You might also consider temporary registrations in a party to affect the outcome of a party primary. However, immediately after the primary, I recommend going back to your "independent" status.

Your registration in a particular party means that you are indirectly giving that party funding and power. This funding and power gets more abused and misused as the party grows. Obviously, the Democratic and Republican Parties are proof of that.

I don't like soiling my reputation by calling myself a Republican or Democrat. I also believe that the ills of America are due to the negligence of the American people who are well represented by their government. As honest and disciplined as the American people are, so goes the government. Most of you should not simply blame "the other guy." Ask yourself who sits on your city council or county board of supervisors. If you don't know, then you've got a big problem and your city or county has a problem.

Right now, you probably have the best government money can buy–and that's not a good thing. Demand candidates that refuse to take the money from special interests and businesses. Then help candidates step up to the plate under that premise.

The Internet is cheap. Most critical information can be found there. Today, we depend on the major media and expensive campaigns to inform us. Those days are coming to an end. It is time for an educated and disciplined electorate that knows the candidate records and where their money comes from.
