Hacking Democracy - Bring this to the attention of Barack Obama!!!

Hello friends and supporters of Barack OBAMA, the Presidential candidate for America,

I am a Singapore citizen whom resonates with Mr. Obama and I want to see him elected as the new President of America. From my point of view, he seems to be *the* only candidate that has the ability to LEAD, to MODERATE, to QUESTION issues and to THINK deep about issues that are plaguing the world and America policies.

However, I am concerned that a similar incident of Presidential election could happen again which made previous Presidential candidate, Al Gore did not win the presidential election.

Recently, I saw a documentary produced by HBO entitled "Hacking Democracy" which shows that the electronic election system developed by Diebold, Inc. is probably "hackable" and easily tampered with!!! It only took 10-secs to "hack" the system to change the data of the e-votes from the memory card on the e-voting system!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, do you know how this could change the result of the election? Could someone be responsible for Al Gore's lost in the last presidential election?

Folks, we need to bring this information to the attention of Mr. Obama and his team of campaigners. How do we make sure that they received this info? I would like to be in touch with him before it is too late.

Summary of the Documentary:

Hacking Democracy is a 2006 documentary film by Russell Michaels, Simon Ardizzone, and Robert Carrillo Cohen, shown on HBO. Filmed over a period of over three years, it documents American citizens investigating anomalies and irregularities with 'e-voting' (electronic voting) systems that occurred during America's 2000 and 2004 elections, especially in Volusia County, Florida. The film investigates the flawed integrity of electronic voting machines, particularly those made by Diebold Election Systems, and the film culminates dramatically in the on-camera hacking of the in-use / working Diebold election system in Leon County, Florida.

In 2007 Hacking Democracy was officially nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism.

This cautionary documentary exposes the vulnerability of computers - which count approximately 80% of America's votes in county, state and federal elections - suggesting that if our votes aren't safe, then our democracy isn't safe either.

As I Google, I found more info about "Hacking Democracy":
I also got several videos from YouTube courtesy of a friend, Hazrul whom commented to my Facebook postings. The videos are linked here:

I look forward to your support and replies and I look forward to Mr. Obama winning the election and being the new President of America. If I can be a catalyst of change to warn him of this possible issue, I want to bring it to his attention and I urge anyone of you readers to assist me.

Stay driven!

Making Optimum Choices in Life

I was asked by one of my business mentees I am currently mentoring, "How do I make the most optimum choice in life when I am bombarded with possibilities all the time?"Life is full of choices. This choice, that choice, both choice or none of the above. THAT's a whopping 4 choice!  Choice can open the door to a whole new possibilities, not only at cross-roads on our path in life, but in each moment, giving us access to the bountiful of possibilities with which we can paint our world any way we want it to be.  We can choose a new action, thought or feeling at any time, and create an entirely new reality as a result.  Every choice has an impact or consequence, to a greater or lesser extent, each one like a pebble dropped in a pond; the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into your future and other areas of your life. Even one small choice made today that shifts your life by a minor degree can take you to an entirely different future than the one you are heading, opening …

The 4 Essentials of Effective Leadership

I read this article written Mark Raciappa, ActionCOACH and I totally agree. His communication is clear, concise and it resonated with me. Mark says;
I remember a bumper sticker: “Either Lead or Follow—But Get Out of the Way!”
Interestingly, in my company, I say something similar and it goes like this "If you can lead, lead. If you can't lead, follow. If you cannot lead or follow, get out of my way!
Mark continued to write that, when our role calls for the former, here are 4 important things to keep in mind:1. Great leaders communicate. Realizing that good communication is a 2-way street, we must be responsible for our part. That being said, true communication is the response that you get. Whatever form you choose (verbal, mail, e-mail, etc), if you don’t get the outcome you seek (from a “willing” recipient), the responsibility lies with the sender. Great leaders confirm, gain commitment, and solicit feedback to improve the process.2. Great leaders make decisions. Far too ofte…
