Survey: 90 Million People Don’t Plan to Vote in the Next Election: Why Aren’t They Showing Up?

Post By RelatedRelated Post

A USA Today/Suffolk University poll shows that more than 2/3 of the people who don’t plan to vote support President Barack Obama over Mitt Romney.  Even more significantly, 80% of these people feel that government plays an important role in their lives.

In spite of this, many of these people don’t plan to vote.  Many say that they don’t have time, or that the candidates don’t excite them.   They also feel that Congress never gets anything done anyway, at least not when it comes to doing things that can make their lives better.

“I don’t think Obama helped us as much as he promised,” says John Harrington, one of the people surveyed.

Harrington says that since the 2008 election when he voted for Obama, he’s lost his home and moved around the country trying to find work.

Curtis Gans, director of the non-partisan Center for the Study of the American Electorate, estimates the voter turnout is going to get worse this year than it was in 2008.  He says that it could drop to what it was in the year 2000, when 54% of Americans chose to vote.  That means that 90 million Americans are not expected to vote in the next election.

“The long-term trend tends to be awful,” said Gans. “There’s a lot of lack of trust in our leaders, a lack of positive feelings about political institutions, a lack of quality education for large segments of the public, a lack of civic education, the fragmenting effects of waves of communications technology, the cynicism of the coverage of politics — I could go on with a long litany.”

Also, the negative ads make both candidates look like liars and crooks, which doesn’t make anyone excited about the election.   Surveys among eligible voters who don’t plan to vote also reveal that roughly 40% don’t regret not voting because they don’t believe their vote is going to count anyway.

The only thing that led these voters to say that they would be more likely to show up to vote is if they believed that their vote would make a difference in a close election.  This one might be it.

  1. Because of what State they live in will decide if their vote will really count……. This will be an election that will not be tamper proof.

  3. I see the propoganda has succeeded. I wonder if a white man had won the presidency will the country was trying to come back from the recession, and blacks like many others suffered the way they did, wud people see it as a part of the country's struggle or the actual impact of that president? I don't see how any president has shown any particular interest in Black concerns nor do I see poverty being impacted. UJV

      *One tax; The FAIR TAX (abolish the European IRS).
      *No drones.
      *Legalize Marijuana; a plant that jails over 1.2 million a year w/ a higher imprisonment rate of any countries' criminals combined which also has medical value and cures Cancer (in many recent studies one more).
      *Less government control and more for the people (and world).

  4. I will not be voting either. I won't be voting because, me being the average citizen that I am, don't see the need to vote when all the attention of our leaders seem to be placed on big corporations, and worldly politics. I'm not looking for a miracle. I'm looking for a leader who will do some of the things for the American people that Gaddafi did for his people before he was assassinated. What's the point of voting for a president when the president decides to go to war without asking my opinion? What's the point of voting when the president loans billions of taxpayer dollars to corporations and financial institutes without asking the taxpayers how they feel? What's the point of voting when the president is not going to step foot in my community, which is a community that needs help more than most communities in America? What's the point of voting for a president in a country where there are more vacant homes than homeless people? Why vote for a president that makes $400,000 a year, while the nations household median is around $46,000. The American people need help, and I'm tired of politicians playing the same old lower taxes mumbo jumbo. I support gay marriage mumbo jumbo. I support abortion mumbo jumbo. Who cares? I don't care how much a president claims he will lower taxes, the American citizen will never escape debt. I'm tired of the games, so I don't plan on participating in them any longer! Like I said before, I'm not looking for a miracle, I'm simply looking for someone who cares about us!

    • Jay you are so fuckean right as I am now a us veteran I can tell you the war in iraq was allwways about the oil. This government does not care about the averge american. I too am not going to vote, for what we have no say what government desides to do with our social security benifits and everything, yo be hit me up we need to talk for real gary_lima@yahoo.com

    • Are you referring to Bush? Everything that this country complains about stemmed from the Bush Administration. Eight years worth of damage and presidential selfishness,arrogance,and ignorance,it may take the same amount of time (if not more) to fix. Unfortunately President Obama is under pressure to satisfy EVERYBODY because EVERYBODY wants something different, EVERYBODY'S expecting him to turn things around by himself. But he needs to stop worrying about pleasing everybody and stand firm on one position. I think he gets distracted because the American people are selfish and pull him in various directions saying "you need to focus on our issue", "no you need to focus on OUR issue!", "our needs are this and that,what are you going to do about them?", "the latinos need this", "the Blacks need that". I'm surprised the President hasn't had a psychotic breakdown already. And when he does decide to focus on particular issues, if none of those issues are yours, you kick and scream at the man for ignoring you, like a 5-year old pulling at his daddy for attention when he's trying to go to work. He wants a toy but his daddy can't get it for him right now;he has to explain to the child that daddy needs to go to work so that he can get paid so that he can go to the store and take care of the toy. Sometimes other issues have to be settled so that other issues can be taken care of. But Americans want what they want and they want it NOW so…my God I'd never want to be in President Obama's position.

    • People can make excuses for Obama all they want. When it all boils down to it, most people simply want to be able to survive. All people want economic equality. All people want a roof over their head. All people want to be able to have children and not rely on government handouts from one of the wealthiest countries in the world. All people want access to a quality education. All people want to be treated fairly and justly. The only thing I see to be childish is feeling sorry for a man who willingly chose to take on the burden of running a country. There are many issues that need to be addressed, and the ones that get the most attention are the ones that resolve nothing. Who cares about the lowering of taxes. Anybody with good sense knows that lowering taxes will not diminish poverty on any level. Why is our president wasting time on gay marriage? Religion and State are separate. Why is our president worried about abortion? These are issues that people need to handle on a state level, not an executive level. People are starving, homeless, jobless, being locked away for nonviolent crimes and all kinds of other life inhibiting things are going on. Yet our president is worried about sending million to rebels in other countries, flying drones over our own nation, bailing out the banks that funded his campaign while the people suffer. If Bush's bullshit were insurmountable, Obama wouldn't have taken the job, but he did so he's now responsible for the state of America. The man makes and will make nearly half a million dollars a year for the rest of his life, but you're worried about him having a nervous breakdown. Have you not seen him playing golf while Americans were wondering where they were going to lay their heads at night? Aren't you worried about how your fellow Americans will survive after they've worked 30 years of their life to retire and receive little to nothing for their years of labor? Please…Stop making excuses for that man because he's Black. Obama signs away our rights as American citizens with NDAA, and all people can say is,"Give the man a break." I wish I would. Bush was horrible, Clinton was horrible, Bush Sr. was horrible, Reagan was horrible and Obama is horrible. Seems to be a trend here! What's so hard for people to see?!?! The Congress nor the POTUS has any interest in the prosperity of American citizens. Go ahead and vote for Obama because he's Black. To do the same thing over and over again without producing results is defined as insanity. I'm neither insane, or uniformed so I won't be participating in these charades any longer. When the American citizens are ready to stand up for themselves and demand better of this country's government, I'll be on the front lines. Until then to hell with this president and the next one.

    • Alright so stop your complaining about the state of things in this country. You're not voting so I'm not understanding your discomfort.

    • I'm not insane enough to keep doing the same crap over and over again to produce nothing. So no, I'm not voting. As I said before, I signed my life away to defend this country, so did my wife, so did my father, so did my uncles. So I will always have the right to complain about the state of this country whether I choose to vote or not. I'm Black, this country wouldn't have achieved it's economic greatness without the labor of my ancestors. How ignorant is it to believe that it's merely a vote alone that gives a person the right to complain? Wow….

      You don't vote on color but on qualifications. He needs to do his job and follow what we've already said. We do surveys and things in this country for a reason for someone to look down and not just follow what his fat cat lobbyists' tell him. Wallstreet? Bailed out a 4th time now for billions. Some of these guys are pushing multimillion dollars deals which include taking out people to high-end restaurants, strip clubs, and so forth to win them over and they throw out 1ks each night. They had this on the t.v. I've been Libertarian since '07 or so and voted Ron Paul last time. Now it's for Gary Johnson. Cannabis cures cancer and we need it legalized already as it imprisons over 1.2 million people a year which has a higher rate of conviction than any other crime in another country combined. America has the largest jail system in modern day (if not all history).

    • well said and so true!!!

    • People not wanting to vote for YOUR choice does not make them stupid. I think you are what you are calling people because you are calling them names since they don't want to go with your choice. As people, there never was a group formed to vote specifically for one individual. Get your tongue straighten, and name calling because folks are not for what you wish is plain retarted.

    • "The uninformed can be educated. Stupid and trifling is just stupid and trifling." Nowhere do I refer to any specific person as stupid but if the shoe fits … . I certainly won't debate the stupidity of not voting and not voting your interests; that's a given. A mind really is a terrible thing to waste! Again, if the shoe fits.

    • Name calling is for 10 year olds. Grow up. It's that plain and simple.

  7. Well then, inform me Lynn….Why should I vote for Obama?

    • like biden said, romney and the racist teanuts will have your black ass in chains back on the plantation picking cotton from sun up to sun down! lol

    • Hell… I don't see Obama working any differently.

    • Jamel, you may not give a rat's booty about what I'm about to say but it is relevant. I don't know where you're from, but I'm sure you have Black ancestors. Family who you may have or may not have known to be in the civil rights movement, the freedom riders, the many Negros, Black folk, niggers, coloreds, who were hosed by water coming at extremely high pressure, bitten and killed by dogs, feet cracked and bleeding from marching, lynched, raped, imprisoned, beaten, and spat on to have the right to vote whether they liked the presidential candidates or not, and you sit there and type you're not voting? The nerve of Blacks today! I may not like some things that are going on in this country and wish President Obama would stop kissing everybody's behind, but at least I know that I'm not wasting a freedom that could still be absent to this very day. Maybe you'd be more satisfied if Blacks still didn't have the right to vote. I think you'd love that. You might as well become one of the White citizens who spat on or raped someone who could've been your grandmother as she was passing out pamphlets encouraging voting for Blacks. And the things you complain about, don't say anything until you are at the ballot. When things aren't going your way in this country,you have no right to complain because you had not cast one vote. Whichever politician you do endorse,your vote could be one vote closer to them getting elected.

    • Jocelyn… You are an example of why Black America is in the state that it's in. You don't know me from the man in the moon, but because I don't choose to vote for the lesser of to evils, you disrespect me and tell me that I may as well "become one of the White citizens who spat on or raped someone who could've been your grandmother as she was passing out pamphlets encouraging voting for Blacks." LOL… I laugh at your remarks because I'm the descendant from a grandfather who's half White because his mother was raped by a White man. I'm a Black veteran as well whose experienced prejudice while defending my nation. However, you wouldn't know these things since you don't know me as you attempt to insult me. I'm not here to be ugly or rude to anyone, so I'll let you have that. The Civil Rights Movement gets my utmost respect. However, the Civil Rights Movement took place nearly 6 decades ago, yet we're still not free. So you seem to believe that we will achieve what so many Blacks fought so hard to achieve by simply voting in the very system which held/holds us back. If you had read my postings before you spewed your insults, you would realize that I voted for Obama in 2008, so I have the right to complain if I so choose to. If I don't vote, I still have the right to complain because I once defended this nation as my wife still does. It's you that have no right to complain because you again will run to the polls and vote for the same exact nonsense once again. So why complain when you voted to put these selfish, greedy people in position to make decisions for you? Keep basing your logic on race if you choose to, it's your prerogative. You're no different than racist Whites in doing so. I love and respect humanity, race has no bounds for me young lady. You have the wrong idea of the Civil Rights Movement. It was not about voting for a Black man just because he's Black. It was about equality. Racial, economic and judicial equality. Til this day, we have neither. 6 decades of voting, yet we still have neither. You'd think that you'd realize by now that the system is flawed. No matter how many times you vote the results remain the same. The race game is old and it's obviously hindered your ability to think rationally.

    • And after all you just said, you're the problem. Black people not getting out to vote is a slap in the face to the struggle that got us the right. I totally agree with you when you say the movement occurred many years ago but we're still not free. In some ways, Blacks still struggle in this country, but we have to admit a lot of the struggles, Blacks bring on themselves. The "race game" hasn't hindered anything in me. But you have to realize our "race" made tremendous sacrifices so our "race" can enjoy certain luxuries today that are darn near always taken for granted. Of course Whites, Hispanics, others fought in the struggle to help us too. But I think you'd be satisfied if somehow our right to vote is revoked again. I already said I don't agree with lots of things in our government, but if I don't vote, I can't say sh**.

    • If I'm a slap in the face… What do you call the 2000 election, John Kerry vs George Bush? Was it a slap in the face when your government blatantly showed you that it does not matter who you vote for, as they proved this with Kerry vs Bush? Yet you still think your vote means something. I bet you think that democrats and republicans actually despise one another. Don't you realize that these people are actors?!?! For how many more decades are you going to sit back and vote in a system that does nothing for you and affords no true power to you? The Civil Rights Movement is a movement that took place because of vast inequalities. Just because the right to vote was afforded does not mean that it is respected. Hasn't history shown you this already? Secondly, who are these people who are running for president? Blacks are suffering all throughout this country, yet out of nowhere, here comes a Black president who barely has 10 years of political experience. As if the plight of Blacks will improve beginning with assigning a Black man to the highest office of the land. Where do they do this at? Everyone with even a nickels worth of sense knows that things improve from the bottom up, not the top down. Instead of thinking logically about what's going on, people like yourself are too worried about the color of people's skin and what took place 60 years ago. Don't you think the people who truly run this Corporation of America know these things. This country was on the verge of revolution after Bush's bullshit! Put a Black man in office, and everyone sits back down on their ass and find a new found faith in their government. Give me a break already!!! Also, if you're so worried about Black history to the point that you vote merely because of it (whether the system is flawed or not), why are you voting for Obama anyway? If you're so into your history, why are you supporting a man who stands up for Planned Parenthood? Don't you know the history of Planned Parenthood and why Margaret Sanger created it? Stop telling me about what the happened in the Civil Rights movement, because even though you may be from Georgia, it doesn't mean that you're more passionate about your roots than I. I don't need the history lesson as much as you may think I do. I deal in facts, regardless of what happened 60 years ago in the Civil Rights Movement. That movement was their choice, and I'm not so sure it was the right choice. I don't even believe that integration was the best option. Maybe the fight that the movement should have fought is one of independence. It's still not logical to me to believe that an oppressor will ever make his slave as equal to, or as powerful as he. I believe in Marcus Garvey and his plight more than I do the Civil Rights movement. It was much more logical. Yes people died, and I realize that, however, the fact that they died does not automatically mean that the fight that they fought was the correct one. After 60 years of integration, Blacks still make up the majority of the poverty class in this country. Blacks still lead the stats in unemployment. Blacks are still segregated when it comes to education and the condition under which we are educated. Blacks are still being slain or imprisoned to this very day. Imprisoned with more lengthier sentences than their White counterparts who commit the same, and in often cases, nonviolent crimes. So stop telling me about the Civil Rights Movement, because I've researched it time and time again. I've researched it enough to know that not all Blacks were in agreement with the movement even back then. I suppose you would insult their moral stance as well because they wanted more than just acceptance by their oppressors! When it all boils down to it… After 60 years of having a right to vote in this country, how has that right to vote improved our status in this country?

    • do you think it matters which president will select the next two supreme court judges within the next 4 years. the bench is already controlled by the conservatives, would you rather obama or romney select the next two judges. your attitude is that nothing matters, let us know which president is better for people of color in selecting supreme court judges.

    • David, what has Obama done in his presidency that makes you believe that the people of color have anything to do with the decisions that he makes? You all are talking about politics, but have you taken the time to track Obama's voting history while he held his Senate seat? No… Because if you did, you would know that Obama was in agreement with a few of Bush's screwed up decisions. That's a fact that y'all choose to ignore though. Some of the very shit that people hold Bush accountable for, Obama voted for as well. You guys are killing me with this color thing, yet you ignore the facts. I'm done with this discussion, because it is way too obvious that I'm the only one dealing with facts and Obama's actions while in the Senate, and now as the POTUS. Damn it I get it… The man is half Black so you support him. Fine, do your thing. I don't vote based on skin color. I don't give a damn what color he is, he has been ineffective. As far as I can see, Obama is no different than Romney. They both lie and cheat, so they're one in the same. Both have been bought and paid for. If you or anyone else believe that two Supreme Court seats will be based solely on a vote, that explains a lot about why America is in the state that it's in. Those people have to much to lose. Like I stated to Jocelyn…. If voting was so fair, Kerry would've have had his chance at President. I guess y'all have selective memory, or practice turning a blind eye to truths that you just don't want to deal with. Like the blatant disregard for the citizens vote in the 2000 election. "The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter." By Winston Churchill….. My sentiments exactly!!!

  8. Wake up from your sleep its your right if you dont vote, but dont lead others to follow you in the ditch. iTs like a bad apple that rudes the rest. ITS sad to get on line and read, that our AFRICAN AMERCIAN Brothers and Sister dont wont vote, for one reason or the other. President Obama is doing all he can, the SPeaker of the house is is racist and he doesn every thing to block the PResident Obama b ills from passing. He has dont a heck of alot with allthe fight he had to do. No he has come to my CIty, No i am not working, nor am I on food stamps, nor do I have health insurance, But Im not stupid to vote for some one who is going to make my life worse off than it isright now. IF you dont vote then shut your darn mouth, and stop spread the no vote virus, you are doing the white man a favor, so now he doesnt have to work so hard at putting VOTE IDS FOR US. CAN YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR THINKING IS WEAK.

  9. Some black folks just don’t get it. Can’t they see that it’s always harder for blacks to get shit done when dealing with racist white trash? Come on now! The time to vote is this November! All you can do is cast your vote and see what happens. I’d rather vote for Pres. Obama than the other fools. At least lets give him another 4 years to prove himself. After 8 years he’s done anyway and then it will be white presidents from then on, I betcha’. Then you can have all the white presidents your happy butts want. Give the Pres. 4 more years. Make them republicans earn that non-vote. Don’t give up now! If there is a time when Pres. Obama can fully help the black race, it’s the next 4 years. It’s time to be optimistic. Now is not the time to act like a spoil brat. After Pres. Obama wins the next election, it will be time for black folks to engage in dialogue with him. This is something everyone should do in order to make it know where they’re coming from.

  10. It is very dangerous especially for black folk who have endured through many years of struggle against surmountable odds both past, present and it seems future. Our ancestors would wail over remarks of quitting, remarks of not being interested in America, etc. Guess what we are Americans and as not to sound redundant in my remarks but we must do better……….to some of my e-mail buddies I e-mailed them the word of the day it's OLIGARCHY, to the doubters look it up that is what the 1% is shooting for trust me……….I will be glad to find a publisher to put out my book "A Letter to the Right" I address all of these issues in it and I talk about the force that exist in America it is so sublime in nature that we don't even know that we are under it………you should read the book which I base part of my thesis on "We Ain't No Niggas! Exposing the Deception of YOUR World History Education" by N. Quamere Cincere (check Amazon)…….$18.00 and worth the price. Remember Carter G. Woodson's remarkable work "The Mis-Education of the Negro." Come on my people we are survivors, folk have stole our ideas and not vice versa. We must vote, we have a voice, there is still hope and it begins with us, the blood of our ancestors calls out to us to do so…….Peace WF3.

  11. Obama told us that he would bring the troops home in 90 days of being inaugurated, but instead, he brought the troops home 3 years later just in time to kick off campaign season. Obama stated that he would remove Wall Street from the white house, instead he appointed Timothy Geithner as secretary of treasure. Obama stated that he would end unwarranted wire tapping of US citizens, instead he installed patriot act two. Not to mention, he voted for Bush's patriot act while he sat on the senate. Do your research! Obama promised that he would not sign NDAA, because it was unconstitutional. Instead, he signed it on New Years Eve of 2011 out of the public eye and his only statement on doing so was a written one. Under section 1021 of the NDAA, it states that any US citizen may be detained indefinitely under the "suspicion" of being a terrorist and done so without a trial. I thought that due process was one of the most important rights afforded to US citizens. I guess some of you don't think so. Obama loaned billions of dollars to bankers and huge corporations while thousands of Americans lost their homes due to the actions of these very banks. What else do you expect when Obama's top campaign contributors have been and will be banks. With all of the people out of jobs and out of homes, Obama administration sees it fit to send $25 million to Syrian rebels who are also comprised of al-Qaeda terrorist. Just as he supported the murder of Gaddafi buy funding Lybian rebels with millions of dollars. All the while, Libyan rebels were slaughtering Blacks by the thousands while Obama and his administration said absolutely nothing! So don't tell me it's important for me to support Obama because he's going to assist Black America. The only references Obama has made to Black America was his statement suggesting that Black America take their slippers off, and he song a few words of an Al Green song. Obama has not addressed the so-called failed war on drugs, or the privatization of prisons promising to keep their prison filled to 90% capacity. America has more prisoners rotting away behind bars than any nation in the world. I don't give a damn if Obama is Black, White, Blue or Orange….If he's done these things while ignoring the state of America's citizens, I don't need or want him to lead my country. Obama is no different from any other president that this country has seen. The last president to care about this country and it's people was Kennedy and he was assassinated for doing so. If America is still so racist, (and yes America is still racist) why hasn't there been a death attempt on Obama. The answer is simple…. Obama doesn't give a damn about Americans, especially Black America, so there's no need to attack him. People are telling me to wake up, but are ignoring all of the above facts that I've just stated. Don't take my word, do your own research. I did my research because I was lied to and persuaded to vote for Obama in 2008, but it won't happen again. People don't even find it odd that Obama is the first president in this country's entire history to chair the UN Security Council, but I'm the one who needs to wake up. NO POTUS has done this because it presents a conflict of interest, duh. Also, I won't be voting for Romney either because he damn sure does not appear to have an interest in anything other than his own bank account. Anytime a man has the chance to be president after putting Americans out of business while profiting from doing so, there is an obvious problem with our country's government. Don't you think? Probably not, because most of you are too fixated on the color of people's skin. If Ron Paul were still in the race, then I'd vote. However, Ron Paul was too concerned about the rights of the American people, so he was quickly silenced. He silenced so effectively that many people to this day don't even know who Ron Paul is! How pathetic is it that the presidential debate system is a privately owned system, so all presidential nominees don't even have to be invited to presidential debates? Yet people still want to participate in these shenanigans! Whatever….

I’ll be damned if I sit back talking about I’m not going to vote. How disrespectful can a person get. I don’t care what is what every African American in this country should be voting PERIOD!

  13. Well I am voting always have and always will. There were too many people who made incredible sacrifices for me to be able to cast my vote to not vote. Folk can hop on this "I'm not voting" band wagon all they want but please count me out. I guess not voting is the new style huh.

  14. Everyone has a right not to vote, but if you're in the number that's choosing not to vote keep all your gripes to yourself until you find a better solution to the problems that plague this nation.

  15. Vote? when you vote for “A” or “B” you still get “F’d”…

    More prisons, no jobs, more corporate and congressional corruptions…

    JFK said “Do not ask what your country can do for you, but you can do for your country”…

    Your country do not want you to have equal access to jobs, housing, financial loans (assistance), medical (insurance), etc…

    But yet, your government allow their own kind to commit crimes of every type under the son while continuing to build more prisons…

    If we voted to privatized every government agencies, nothing would change because we do not have the money or the weapons to control anything, so the same companies who do not want to hire you now, definitely would not hire you is we privatized all of government…

    Obama’s dream act is designed to get votes since he knows he cannot depend on you…

    If he is re-elected, I hope you understand that you cannot depend on him…

    If his opponent wins the elections, then you should already know the outcome, nothing has changed…

    The theme for this year election to all Black people is “I GOT YOUR BACK”…but yet, there is not one person who is Black, that is on Obama’s paid campaign staff…

    The only way to hurt the White Devil is in his pocket-book, but we would never do that to Jesus again…

  16. People need to wake up period. I will not vote ever because we are and have been under admiralty law. Look at any flag in any court house or government building you will see that the flag has yellow fringes. The original flag does not have yellow fringes. It’s a shame that so many peopleare asleep. The united states of America is a corporation and the POTUS is the CEO period. He follow through the commands of the monarchy of queen Elizabeth and fellow Rothschild, and the powerful 13 families that own the world monetarily. It is about world domination, a one world government. This is why they must destroy the U.S this is the reason why they save the banks so the people can lose their homes so that the banks can take them again and continue their fraudulent loans that are null and void from the beginning. Your votes never count the establishment picks who becomes the CEO of America. The voting process, debates, democrats, republicans are all smoke screens to keep the American people distracted. Going into Libya was for oil and setting up a central bank there. This is what is going on in all of these so called terrorism wars. It will be or if not already Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan. The US gov is responsible for the 911 attacks. To lead into invading Iraq claiming mass destruction and not finding even a fire cracker. Autism is from vaccination that they give the children, they experimented on people with syphilis and especially this bogus HIV which used to be called SIV because it was taking from the chimps in Africa that carries it but doesn’t harm them. They took the strain and use put it in the polio vaccination and that is how it started to spread. The cure is very simple because it destroys the immune system. The gov is the son of perdition amplified. Here is the cure, it also cures all other type of other diseases.

    1. Soak 3 average sized non GE/GMO lemons for about 10 minutes in water with some vinegar or plenty of see salt added. Then scrub each lemon to rid it of whatever the growers have sprayed on it.

    2. Cut the lemons with skin and pips in pieces and put them in a strong mixer blender

    3. Add 3 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive oil and 3 cups of water

    4. Add 3 tablespoons of non GE/GMO local garlic

    5. Add 3 tablespoons of non GE/GMO local Ginger (Double this amount for people with Lung problems/ Asthma)

    6. Add 3 teaspoons of cold pressed Hemp Seed Oil (Double for Epilepsy & nervous diseases)

    7. Add 3 teaspoons of cold pressed Flax Seed Oil

    8. Add 3 tablespoons of Aloe Vera extract (with no preservatives)

    9. Add 1 teaspoon of tumeric

    10. Add 3 tablespoons of a natural Multivitamin/ Multi Mineral supplement (Foodstate multi mineral & Vitamin)

    11. Add ¼ teaspoon of Stevia powder.(or less)

    12. Add 3 cups of ozon enriched filtered water (We recommend OASIS water 0861 762 747)

    13. Blend for 35 minutes. (or less if its a very powefull mixer blender)

    14. Drink 1/3 in the morning, 1/3 after lunch and 1/3 in the evening. Repeat this for 6 to 24 weeks non stop, depending on when you feel that you have fully recovered. Then you can maintain your health by eating organic and wholesome. You can also use Umlingo WamaNgcolosi for maintenance by having one bottle twice a month.

    In addition on a daily basis the patient should eat 2 large Beetroots/day, 2 Brazil Nuts, 1 Tablespoon of Pumpkin Seeds, as much non GE/GMO organic Fruit and Veggies as possible, drink 2 liters of Filtered water, expose the body to sunshine in the mornings and late afternoons and breath deeply. If the patient feels like drinking Tea, it should only be natural herbal tea like green or Rooibos tea without sugar. (You can use Stevia powder to sweeten)

    Incase of Asthma, Do the following breathing exercise a couple of times per day: Breath out, till all is out (bending even over). Breath in on the count of 8, hold your breath for the count of 8, and breath out again, bending over. Singing songs where you have to use up your air is also a good way to do this exercise

    Avoid the following until you are free of Symptoms and beyond:

    No “normal” tea, no coffee (instant or bean), no alcohol, no juices (even the “natural” ones or the no sugar added ones), no fizzy or gassy drinks, no diet drinks, no milk or yoghurt or any other animal products. No sugar, no refined foods, no bread, no wheat products, no pasta, no flour, no potatoes, obviously no cakes etc., no diet products. No red meat till you are healthy, and than you can eat occasionally “green” meat (from cattle raised organically). Stay away from all processed meats including sausages, and also meat from pork like bacon and ham etc. Do not use artificial sweetners, as they were designed to kill ants, so if you want to get rid of your ants in your garden or house, just sprinkle artificial sweetener powder and the ants will die. Heating oil and frying food make the food and the oil toxic. Avoid especially when sick. Later on you can use Palmflower or Coconut oil to fry occasionally.

    NEVER stop your medication on your own (unless you have 100% faith in your own decisions based on real knowledge) – it can be dangerous. Have yourself monitored regularly by a doctor (or a registered nurse who is allowed to adjust your or terminate your medication) for insulin, high blood pressure medication and cholesterol medication should you have doubts. You will need less medication as you stay on Umlingo WamaNgcolosi untill all medication may be stopped. You can reduce medication like painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs yourself, but for example cortisone or steroids (often prescribed for arthritis and asthma are drugs you have to be weaned of, depending how long you have been on it. Although you will not need your asthma pump anymore, keep it with you till you know for sure you will not need it anymore. Don’t just throw it out when you have not used it for a week or two.

    Once you are well, you can reduce Umlingo WamaNgcolosi to twice per day. Keep on monitoring your ph so it stays in the normal range, and than you can reduce the Umlingo WamaNgcolosi to once per day. You will notice that when for example you have eaten many things you should normally avoid, like cakes, puddings and meat, your ph may drop and you may feel sluggish the next day. Just for one or two days take again 3 cups of Umlingo WamaNgcolosi, so you can get all the junk quickly out of your body. Do not see this as a diet but a lifestyle change. The saying “You are what you eat” is so true. You eat junk, you become diseased!
    Umlingo WamaNgcolosi juice will bring your body back to balance. When you have eaten something that makes you feel nauseas, or causes you to vomit or have diarrhea just take 2 tablespoons of activated charcoal every 2 hours till it has stopped. You can also grind some burned wood or plain charcoal into a powder and take that. We advise on many other diseases like Lupus, cancers, autism, strokes, heart, emphysema, etc. The basic Umlingo WamaNgcolosi juice is than still used but with other things added. You can e-mail us on informationclinic@gmail.com to find out what to add. Keep smiling, 1love

  17. @ PB Short Hopefully you’re a paid Republican operative trying to discourage Black people from voting. If not, you either need to be educated or you’re just stupid. Giving you the benefit of the doubt, allow me to educate you.

    Your vote counts! If your vote doesn’t count, why are REPOUBLICANS working so hard to keep Blacks and poor people from voting? Whay are REPUBLICANS passing laws to prevent or make it harder for people to vote!

    As for the President’s “dream act” either Hispanic citizens will vote for President Obama or the won’t. The “dream act” will not get President Obama one additional vote because the people covered are not citizens and are not eligible to vote. You do know that the Dream Act didn’t pass, don’t you?

    Deport every Hispanic migrant worker if you want. Food will be so expensive that you could starve unless you are a rich Republican. Hispanic farm workers are the people to pick the fruit and vegetalbes in the grocery stores. Most are not citizens and cannot vote. You “dream act” argument is BS!

    Next, as for the privatization of prisons, it is REPUBLICANS who support locking Black people down for profit. If REPUBLICAN prison privatization becomes widespread the REPUBLICANS who own the prison industrial complex will make millions off locking Blacks and poor people down. Everyone watch out!

    It is President Obama and Attorney General Holder who support reducing the unfair sentences under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. You Know, the sentences that require to low level non violent BLACK offenders to waste away in prisons for twenty and thirty years? The Obama Administration wants to shorten those sentences. Under President Obama the sentencing guidelines have already been lowered to reflect more fairness.

    Now, since most Black and poor folks are not criminals, we all benefit from access to basic preventative healthcare and life saving treatments. Healthcare is a life and death issue! Black people have already started to benefit from President Obama’s plan to insure ALL Americans. Romney has vowed to cut off healthcare on day 1.

    As for your false statement that if Romney is elected, “nothing has changed,” you lose. A lot will charge. Poor sick people will die!

    Another thing that will change is access to college educations and trade schools. Romney will cut Pell Grants and low interest student loans. Fewer Black and poor people will go to college or trade school. They won’t qualify for anything but minimum wage jobs.

    Romney will gut Food stamps and social programs, including Head Start, job training programs, temporary aid to families and unemployment benefits.

    If you working, Romney will raise your taxes and give tax cuts to rich REPUBLICANS who close plants and send high paying American jobs to foreign countries where workers are paid $1 a day. Then rich REPUBLICANS bring the poorly made slave labor products back to the US and sell them to Black and poor people for outrageous profits.

    Under Romney, banks, Pay Day and Tile Loan Companies and Rent to Own Stores can charge more interest. Romney wants to unshackle these REPUBLICAN owned companies so they can exploit Black and poor people even more.

    Know anyone losing their house because they got tricked into a bad mortgage that they didn’t understand? Romney will allow banks and mortgage companies to do more of that. President Obama is working to stop the fraud and stop exploiting poor and Black people.

    Romney does not support equal pay for equal work or women being treated fairly in the workplace. President Obama signed a law, The Lilly Ledbetter Act, that require people on the same level doing the same job to make the same money.

    Under Romney, credit card interest and student loan interest will go up. Credit card companies will not be required to tell customers how their payments are applied. Credit card companies will not be required to post payment in a way that benefits the customer.

    Romney plans to cut Social Security and Medicare. Grandma and grandpa may end up homeless, starving, eating cat food or living with you. When Romney turns Medicare into vouchers, poor seniors may die if they can’t afford healthcare. Remember Section 8 vouchers? They aren’t worth the paper they are written on if you can’t find a house that accepts Section 8. Now Romney wants to give Black and poor granny’s vouchers?

    Speaking of Section 8 and housing assistance programs are gone under Romney. No social safety net for people who fall on hard times.

    People on Social Security disability, look out. That’s getting cut too. No matter how sick or disabled you are, work or die!

    Lost your job? Unemployed? Get another one. Unemployment benefits cut under Romney.

    When we vote, we vote for judges or the people who appoint judges. What more fairness in the court system? Elect President Obama. Romney judges will lock you down and allow REPUBLICAN prison companies to make money off your lockdown.

    No good schools in your neighborhood? Romney will cut education funds. President Obama will invest in education and better schools.

    President Obama works for us! Want the President to do more? Vote! Vote out every REPUBLICAN who BLOCKS President Obama from working to better our lives. Vote in people who will work with the President. Vote in massive numbers. Vote!

    Finally, a lot of the people who are discouraging you from voting are paid by Romney and REPUBLICANS. They think you are
    stupuid. Show them you are not stupid. VOTE!

  18. @ erica

    Tea and beet juice won’t cure cancer. A mind is a terrible thing to waste!

  19. Our votes count! If our vote did not count, why are REPUBLICANS working so hard to keep Blacks. poor people and working class people from voting? Why are REPUBLICANS passing laws to prevent or make it harder for you to vote?

    If you want President Obama to do more, Vote! Vote out every REPUBLICAN who BLOCKS President Obama from working to better our lives. Vote in people who will work with the President. Vote in massive numbers. Vote!

    A lot of the people who are discouraging you from voting are paid by Romney and REPUBLICANS. They think you are stupid. Show them you are not stupid. VOTE!

      Youtube ‘Romney and Obama the same’ and you will witness them sharing the same remarks and “promises”.

  21. Im gonna vote EVEN THOUGH IM ALMOST CERTAIN IT DOESNT MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

    Between the electorial college and and DIEBOLD voting machines?

    Im inclined to believe this is all a game.

    If you have been paying attention, nothing ever changes no matter who the president is..

    Did Obama change anything??? (crickets)

    We are still allied with Israel, the Saudi’s and Pakistan..

    Bin Laden is supposedly dead, but the wars keep on rolling as if Bush is still in office.

    Economy crashes and nobody on Wall Street goes to jail… No they get bailed out with our money and they get to crash the economy all over again…..

    But If my black azz goes to Zuchotti park to protest? I go right to jail for bothering “the elite”

    This is an oligarchy at best…. At worst? this country is turning into a Fascist Police state…

    Like I said, I’ll still vote if for no other reason than simple due diligence, but I dont believe it means anything..

    It certainly doesnt provide direction for our politicians and government… They are already bought and paid for by corporations

  22. @ Rasheed7

    Our votes count! If our vote did not count, why are REPUBLICANS working so hard to keep Blacks. poor people and working class people from voting? Why are REPUBLICANS passing laws to prevent or make it harder for you to vote?

    If you want President Obama to do more, Vote! Vote out every REPUBLICAN who BLOCKS President Obama from working in our interest. Vote in people who will work with the President. Vote in massive numbers. Vote!

    A lot of the people who are discouraging you from voting are paid by Romney and REPUBLICANS. They think you are stupid. Show them you are not stupid. VOTE!

    • @sue

      Believe me… I am not falling for any of Romney’s lame tricks.. My point is that the democrats are not any better. Niether group answers to the American people and voting isnt gonna change any of that… I know there is alot of power and prestige involved in the presidency, so it isnt necessarily true that our votes count..

      Each day I see more evidence that the votes dont matter because the status quo will remain the same no matter who becomes president…

      But like I said, I’ll vote if only to keep a f’ed up situation from getting worse RIGHT NOW…

      but come 2016 we’ll 2 more puppets running for president like these two we have running now, and nothing will change…. more war, more jail, more poverty

  23. Dem and Rep, same animal, both controlled by the bankers and oligarchs who now have the world on the verge of a worldwide Holocaust that no one will escape.

  25. anybody and I don't care what race, who doesn't vote just because Obama wasn't the 'Super Negro" folks expected him to be because of this appointment as president. Do you seriously think he was going to be able to do all thingsives he said with a plethera of racists packing the government seats? It is so true about people not being educated enough in politics that they think being president gives you a magic wand to fix everything. He had 4 years to TRY to fix some things most that took more than one term to develop and with the resistance of the entire house and senate who obviously wanted to make him an example, I don't think he would've been able to do what he wanted anyway. Blacks and minorities, senior citizens, veterans, etc. will get exactly what they deserve for not voting if they let that idiot Romney into the white house by not voting. You think you had it bad this term? Wait until there is no more medical care for the poor or disabled, no jobs unless you are some corporate clone and a lucky one at that or if you don't want to go to China to work. Let's see how many babies you can take care of if you have to pay for contraceptives or abortions out your own pocket. Things can get worse as the other candidate has already written you off before the elections, and they don't think you will vote anyway which is why this wicked GOP party is so confident of winning that they don't even care how many fuck ups their guy does. Vote now because the only reason we have the issues we have is because you probably haven't voted before. These treacherous politicians wouldn't be in office if you didn't make it easy by not voting or just voting for presidential elections. But if you think Obama is not a better choice than Romney abd you are part of his non concern, then buy yourself a journal and take notes on the incidents that will happen with that Freddy Munster fool in the President seat.

    *One tax; The FAIR TAX (abolish the European IRS).
    *No drones.
    *Legalize Marijuana; a plant that jails over 1.2 million a year w/ a higher imprisonment rate of any countries' criminals combined which also has medical value and cures Cancer (in many recent studies one more).
    *Less government control and more for the people (and world).
