Secretary of State Scheme on YOUR Ballot Funded by George Soros - SOS Grant

Soros Eyes Secretary of States

(en part) History's most notorious Georgian-turned-Russian, the politically astute Joseph Stalin once remarked, "The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

The lesson has not been lost on the increasingly notorious Hungarian-cum-American George Soros.

A group backed by Soros is gearing up to steal the 2012 election for President Obama and congressional Democrats by installing left-wing Democrats as secretaries of state across the nation. From such posts, secretaries of state can help tilt the electoral playing field.

This is, of course, the same Soros, the same hyperpolitical left-wing philanthropist who makes no secret of his intention to destroy capitalism....

The vehicle for this planned hijacking of democracy is a below-the-radar non-federal "527" group called the Secretary of State Project. The entity can accept unlimited financial contributions and doesn't have to disclose them publicly until well after the election.

It was revealed during a panel discussion at the Democratic Party's convention last year that the Democracy Alliance, a financial clearinghouse created by Soros and Progressive insurance magnate Peter B. Lewis, approved the Secretary of State Project as a Grantee. The Democracy Alliance aspires to create a permanent political infrastructure of nonprofits, think tanks, media outlets, leadership schools, and activist groups -- a kind of "vast left-wing conspiracy" to compete with the conservative movement. It has brokered more than $100 million in grants to liberal nonprofits, including ACORN.

At the top of the SoS Project's slate of candidates for state-level secretary of state positions in 2010 is Minnesota's radically left-wing Mark Ritchie. A former community organizer, Ritchie was first elected Minnesota secretary of state in 2006. Franken and Obama, by the way, were endorsed last year by ACORN Votes, ACORN's federal political action committee.

In 2006, the Minnesota ACORN PAC endorsed Ritchie, a longtime ACORN ally, and donated to his campaign. According to the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board, contributors to Ritchie's campaign included liberal philanthropists Soros, Drummond Pike, and Deborah Rappaport, along with veteran community organizer Heather Booth, a Saul Alinsky disciple who co-founded the Midwest Academy, a radical ACORN clone that breeds Marxist agitators....

The 2010 slate also includes California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, whom the group describes as "one of the most progressive Secretaries of State in the nation." Bowen was endorsed in her previous run by California ACORN PAC.

I'm voting out Debra Bowen and voting no on 15 and while I am at it, I'll vote no on 14 too!

Simply an OUTSTANDING post, Kelly. Sincere thanks! The Democrat party will do ANYTHING to stay in power. They are NOT the democrats our parents knew. John Kennedy would be considered way to conservative for this party today.

The democrat party today is so far to the left that I see very little difference between them and ... marxist/communists. (Sorry if this offends anyone...but I am calling it as I see it.) Anyone who voted for Obama should be asking him/herself how his policies and the direction he is taking this country ... is any different than the marxists of totalitarian countries. Very little to no difference. This is a dangerous direction for our country.

We have to STOP the Secretary of State project, in Kelly's post, at a minimum.

No on 15, a "badly designed attempt at public financing".

Web Link

Scary thing about Prop 15: Web Link

The repeal of the ban on taxpayer-funded campaigns means that legislators, with a simple majority vote, can expand public campaign financing to any campaigns they want, including their own.

I am personally on record here as saying it is time to get corruption and special interest money out of financing political campaigns. But this is not the way to do it. McCain-Feingold was not the way to do it. I have not yet heard the politician or group who has come up with a way to do it, sad to say.
A pledge of some sort that opposing candidates would sign on to is the only way I can see our current system can change. But I cannot imagine this happening in any major race.


Don't limit voters choices to the two biggest money campaigns

Minority political parties say no on top two (Prop 14) Web Link
Green Party calls it the incumbent protection plan: Web Link

The ballot measure language states: Ballot title and label: "Elections. Increases Right to Participate in Primary Elections"

Should say DECREASES right to participate in general elections!
This would eliminate write-in candidates and minority parties from a spot on the ballot in November and the proponents claim it will INCREASE voter participation? What a crock!
Web Link
(When the Green Party and the Republicans agree, you know you have something!!)

Stop top two - NO ON 14
