(2012) Why SKYTL Matters to NC


SCYTL (see previous articles) has been flying under the radar for quite a long time.  Their involvement in US elections went virtually unnoticed in the 2010 election cycle.  Now, two years later and without the help of main stream media, the internet underground has discovered and is now in the process of informing the public.  Below is a list of SKYTL’s 2010 “News and Events” that pertain to the United States.  There is much more under the 2011 and 2012 tabs.  SKYTL’s website and news page can be accessed here. Again, this is a list of 2010 only.  Commentary continues after the list.

Clearly, Congress has passed enabling legislation that has set the stage for the cabinet level independent commissions to remove the American electoral process to foreign soil.  It is evident that the Constitution places these commissions under the EXECUTIVE BRANCH.
However, it is also clear that each state has a Secretary of State and an Elections Commission.  It is these bodies on a state level that either have contracted with or are anticipating a contract with this Spanish company.  These are the folks that we the people need to go after.  
Do not get a false sense of security if your state, for instance North Carolina, is not currently involved in this electronic internet voting platform.  North Carolina uses ES&S equipment (Forsyth County).  From Business Wire: “Scytl and Election Systems & Software signed an agreement in May, 2011
to jointly market solutions for military and overseas voters in the
United States and have been working together with election jurisdictions
ever since to demonstrate these initiatives.” 
SKYTL is aggressively marketing their Global platform to every state, including NC.  Unless we stop this at a state level, our votes will eventually go overseas…to be counted…at the expense of our national security.

North Carolina is in the process of electing a new Secretary of State and Governor.  The Candidates for SoS are AJ Daoud, Ken Gardner, Ed Goodwin, and Mike Beitler.  The candidates for Governor (who appoints 5 members to the state BOE) are Jim Harney, Scott Jones, Jim Mahan, Pat McCrory, Charles Kenneth Moss, and Paul Wright. These candidates need to be informed of this information.  We MUST determine which of them will stand fast and hard against this EXECUTIVE BRANCH attack on our electoral process. 

This is, in my opinion, the most important issue facing our state.  Without sanctity of our vote, we are no longer a free country.   

Please contact me with information regarding Secretary of State and Governor candidates on this issue.  I will also be doing my own research.
