Hacking Democracy

This is part 1 of a 9-part video on how "Democracy" works in America. If this does not make you go out and fight for Participatory and Representative Democracy.........

.........then check your numbness in your heart.

In Mexico, where I was born and raised, in the 70's & 80's, it was naked electoral fraud. We, Mexicans, even created a vocabulary for the different ways of committing fraud and the fraud makers. "Mapaches" (Racoons) for the ballot box stealers. "Tacos" for the way you bundled ballots like a taco and then stuffed the ballot box. "Raton Loco" for the voters who went searching for the "nobody-knows-where-the-voting-precint-is-located". On and on. They are still stealing elections in Mexico. But. We have learned from one of our neighbors how to do it better.
