With all the discussion of the contentious 2016 election, the most shocking fact is often ignored: that millions of people had their votes stolen through malicious, means. The Republican Party is currently working to purge millions more voters leading up to the 2018 election.

To explain this major attack on our supposed democratic process, Abby Martin interviews investigative reporter Greg Palast, who has done the most extensive work uncovering this massive disenfranchisement campaign.

  14. Twenty-six states and the District of Columbia have the right of Initiative or Referendum. I am of the opinion that not much is going to change in Washington, DC until the people who have the option to commence good legislation actually do it, forcing the politicians in DC to take note.

    In the 2016 election in Arizona the use of recreational marijuana was narrowly defeated, and it was primarily defeated because of beverage industry and business working to produce a synthetic form of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) pumped millions into defeating the Initiative.
    Therefore, I believe it is imperative that the states with Initiative and Referendum pass the following:
    Initiative Funding Proposal

    In that various State Initiatives have been defeated due to extensive funding by corporations, trade associations, and commercial profit oriented enterprises who actively advertise, lobby, and work to defeat an Initiative, or have introduced Initiatives strictly to benefit them, the Initiative Funding Proposal states that only voters who are natural citizens, and non-profits, and non-commercial associations can introduce or fund ballot Initiative or Referendum measures.

    A natural citizen is defined as a living man or woman who is registered to vote in the state.

    Please pass this on, especially if you reside in a state which offers Initiative or Referendum.

    Please contact Shaine at guadamour [at] yahoo [dot] com to get this going in Arizona.

    This is a very important Initiative because once it is passed it will be much easier to pass initiatives without corporate interference. Automatic voter registration, mail in ballots, and ranked voting can then be passed.
