Regular readers of this site know my opinion about
computers counting elections
. But so that my position is clear to all
new readers I'll make it simple. The only condition under which I would
even think of giving any credibility to an election of any type that
was counted on a computer would be with a manual validation of the
results immediately after the election of a sufficient quantity of
randomly chosen voted paper ballots (which eliminates touchscreen
voting all together) to determine the accuracy of the computer reported
results. I could get more detailed but it really isn't that difficult.
Arizona just passed emergency legislation for the 2006 election
addressing this very issue. But I had to sue to get them to even
pretend to implement the law while I was running for Secretary of State
to bring attention to this issue, and there are still lawsuits pending
in Arizona that will have many election officials having to stay after
school when it is all over.
I know all of the bullet points given to those on the
front lines by the puppet masters and I can tell when I am being
bullshitted just like most Americans can. For days I have been
following up on leads given me by election integrity activists and GOP
activists her in Iowa that have been directed to me on this issue or I
I have seen the wide support for the Ron Paul
campaign but I know what is going to happen. The Military Industrial
New World Empire Order of (fill in the blank here) will not allow the
people to deny them the ability to finish with the largest bank robbery
of all history,... In My Not So Humble Opinion.
I just talked to Aaron Russo today (his battle with
cancer continues, warm thoughts and prayers are due him for his efforts
and accomplishments), Aaron Russo is the producer of the movie
"America: From Freedom to Fascism". I've known Aaron for years and he
has been committed to sharing what he believes is at the core of what
has gone wrong in America. I called him today to share with him what i
have witnessed across the country as I travel for the
RonPaulRevolution. In every city I've been in where Dr. Paul speaks in
several states, the most cheered position of Ron Paul is the
elimination of the Federal Reserve. Even more than the Iraqi War issue
(a close second,... but still clearly second). This has been a surprise
to many first timers to these events. I started to notice it when it
was pointed out to me at the Las Vegas Rally in early July. Last night
in Fairfield, Iowa I heard the same response from hundreds of people
living in the middle of a state with nothing but cornfields around them
as far as the eye can see.
I think Aaron and Dr. Paul, and many others that
understand what has happened to America, are right, the most
productive country in all human history has been plundered to the bone
and it is time for another r3VOLution.
Aaron's movie has doe exactly what he had hoped. It
has provided an historical record of what has happened, how and the all
important WHY. The courage of Congressman Ron Paul to be even a small
part of the film, long before he made the decision to run for
president, is just another testament of his character. His willingness
to take on the biggest and the baddest is the trait most required in a
any type of revolution.
I want to take this opportunity thank both men for
what they have already done. Aaron, you have already accomplished what
you set out to do. You were were right to take on this project and see
it through. You will live forever in the hearts of those that
understand how important it was to help educate so many that were
needed. Thank you!
But I am of the opinion that the bad guys have no
intention of "playing fair". I am amazed at the resistance to the idea
that the same people that would wage needless wars, spy on innocent
people, steal property, counterfeit money (to name but a few things) in
an ever increasing spiral of domination and plunder, would somehow be
ethically restrained from committing the election fraud that helped
make it all possible.
I am very comfortable sharing my opinion about the
Iowa Straw Poll being held this Saturday, August 11th 2007..... 'If the
'bad guys' _can_ get away with reporting results that show less support
for Ron Paul than is really there, _they will_!'
I did my best to determine the method of validationg
the election results and could get no "official" response until today.
Mary Tiffany is the Iowa State GOP Communications Director. After
finally getting her on the phone and introducing myself as a visiting
radio talk show host from Phoenix she was kind enough to take my
questions seriously and promised to get back to me today. I had planed
to arrive at their downtown office in Des Moines should she not call me
by 4:30pm Iowa time. I was on my way to the Iowa State GOP HQ when I
received Mary's call at 4:35pm. She was clear and straight to the
point. Each campaign was welcome to have representatives witness the
feeding of the paper ballots into the counting computers but that there
would not be a manual count of any kind. I then asked what would happen
to the original paper ballots. She asked me to hold for a moment while
she checked. In our earlier phone conversation she said that I needed
to talk to "Eric" the Iowa State GOP's Political Director so I can only
imagine she was likely getting directions from him. She came back on
the line to say that the paper ballots would remain with the machines
and would not elaborate further. I asked if the paper would be
destroyed and she would not/could not answer.
So there you have it. The same machines that
California just decertified 3 days ago and Florida is in the spot light
about as well, are going to be used to determine the future of the very
people behind the computer printouts for the election results.
It has become very clear to me why a small state like
Iowa is made the first state. The local party charges $35 for _any_
Iowan that is old enough to vote in the 2008 election to cast a ballot.
This fundraiser for the Iowa GOP is worth millions in direct and
indirect revenue for the GOP here and the businessmen and rocking the
boat that brought the money isn't going to happen.
So what should be done? I am of the opinion that the
education of the people of Iowa and the country has already started to
happen and the net benefit for the revolution is worth all of the
effort no matter what is reported by the Live Free or Diebold
Computers. But I encourage us all not to be deterred by a muted result
of the people's voice. The Bad Guys hear us and they are very worried
that their time is near an end. But their fear also makes them very
dangerous in too many ways to count. So the only advice I have is for
us to keep doing exactly what we have been doing,... ignoring them.
Their rigged polling, their rigged elections, their bias media, their
fearmongering and warmongering are all signs of defeat and I am very
encouraged by the awareness of most of the activist supporting Ron Paul.
However, there are still some that seek some kind of
sanction from the very people that would suffer greatly from a Ron Paul
presidency,... Why? Their opinion matters to me far less than almost
any Junior High School student. Heck,... it'll likely be an 8th grader
with some inside information and a Blog that will be the final straw
that breaks through the mind fog of an entire generation.
For those of you that have not been to an event where
hundreds show up with only 24-48 hours notice of a Ron Paul appearance
that has every demographic represented, I encourage you to go to one
when you have a chance. You'll understand that you are already free,...
you just have to work to make certain that the Bad Guys realize it,...
Heh, I didn't say it'd be easy, nothing worth while is.
