"Give a damn about the world you live in? Give a damn about what you and I both know
is one of the most shameful and destructive periods in American history? If so, do something
about it. You can start by reading We Do Not Consent."
— Brad Friedman, Creator/Editor, BradBlog.com; Co-Founder, VelvetRevolution.us
"If in the future we have vital elections, the "no basis for confidence" formulation that
GuvWurld is popularizing will have been a historically important development. This
is true because by implicitly insisting on verification and checks and balances instead
of faith or trust in elections officials or machines as a basis for legitimacy, it encourages
healthy transparent elections. It’s also rare that a political formulation approaches scientific
certainty, but this formulation is backed up by scientific principles that teach that if
you can’t repeat something (such as an election) and verify it by independent means, it
doesn’t exist within the realm of what science will accept as established or proven truth."

"Dave Berman has been candid and confrontational in challenging all of us to be "ruthlessly
honest" in answering his question, "What would be better?" He encourages us to
build consensus definitions of "better," and to match our words with actions every day,
even if we do only "the least we can do." Cumulatively and collectively, our actions will
bring truth to light."
— Nezzie Wade, Sociology Professor, Humboldt State University and College of the Redwoods
"Dave Berman's work is quietly brilliant and powerfully utilitarian. His
Confidence Resolution provides a fine, flexible tool whereby any community can reclaim
and affirm a right relation to its franchise as a community of voters."
— Elizabeth Ferrari, San Francisco, Green Party of California
"This is an important collection of essays with a strong unitary theme: if you can't prove
that you were elected, we can't take you seriously as elected officials. Simple, logical,
comprehensive. 'Management' (aka, the 'powers that be') needs to get the message. 'The
machines' are not legitimizers, they're an artful dodge and a path to deception. We've had
enough...and we most certainly DO NOT consent."
— Michael Collins covers the election fraud beat for "Scoop" Independent Media
"What's special about this book (and it fits because there's nothing more fundamental
to Democracy than our vote) is the raising of consciousness. Someone recognizing they
have no basis for trusting elections may well ask what else is being taken for granted."
— Eddie Ajamian, Los Angeles, CA
"I urge everyone to read "We Do Not Consent", and distribute it as widely as possible."
— B Robert Franza MD, author of We the People ... Have No Clothes: A Pamphlet for every American
