Maine GOP Recounting Votes ( ! )

The Maine Republican Party, under fire from Ron Paul supporters for its mishandling of the state’s recent caucuses, is now re-canvassing counties and municipalities to recount vote totals.

POLITICO obtained an email from the State Republican Party asking local chairmen to send them the vote totals from their local straw polls.

Here's what I take away from this Yahoo! story:

'Ron Paul is just getting what he deserves as a Libertarian...' Complete ignorance. Utter condescending malice. This Jon C. Hopwood guy must have been paid by the GOP to write this piece of 'journalism'. ( http://news.yahoo.com/ron-paul-cheated-victory-poetic-justic... )

"The Supreme Court has ruled that in its private affairs, a party can do what it likes to ensure the candidate it nominates reflects its philosophy, according to law professor Richard L. Hasen." That is a murderous sentence from this Yahoo! article. Murderous.

I must ask, even if the above is accurate, how is this a'private affair'?!?!...

Absolutely backwards

Every member of the Republican Party, whether you call it private or public deserves to have their voice heard. So this logic doesn't pan out. The GOP elite (who decided there gets to be GOP elite anyway) aren't the ones who should be deciding the candidate, the people of the party who spend their time caucusing and voting should. Duh.

People will sure twist logic anyway it suits them to be corrupt without having to call it corrupt.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

And if the "private" party refuses

to allow all its voices to be heard, those voices MUST take their vote and party affiliation elsewhere.

Make a statement to the corrupt GOP: count our votes, or count us out of supporting your party.

Does that mean

Voter intimidation would be okay? What if the GOP said "no blacks" can vote in the primary? the Ron Paul voters are being disenfranchised and are the blacks of the GOP. if this republic is going to stand the ability of the people to trust the system to honestly count their vote must be upheld and supported. When people see the system is rigged against them, then they give up on non-violent forms of activism...............

Bugs in the machine's picture

I read somewhere

That there were additional caucuses that were still yet to occur after this weekend.

Plus there are also some smaller towns that did not caucus at all, but still could before a deadline in March.

Is it possible that these towns might be a secret weapon that ole' Charlie and his gang are going to pull out at the last minute to counter any gain we achieve in Washington and Waldo County totals?

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

all this bs in Maine has even caught the attention of liberals at DU

Will count for what? Maine's

Will count for what? Maine's caucus is meaningless. The winner has been declared and it does not matter anymore.

According to Jesse Benton?

"The Maine GOP has a lot of important work to do, and we won't waste their time investigating the meaningless, partial caucus straw poll," Benton told USA TODAY, in response to a query about the Bangor newspaper's story.


Is WINNING a state "meaningless" too Jesse? Oh yea, I forgot it is ONLY about winning delegates. I think your boss needs to speak to you because he has stated in recent news interviews, that it is not only about picking up delegates but also wants to WIN Presidential Straw polls!

The Ron Paul supporters have kept up the heat on Charlie Webster and this fraud in Maine dispite the lack of support from the Campaign.

Ben Swann - NEW UPDATE!!!

Ben Swann just did another segment on the Maine Caucus Fraud.


Seriously, somebody get this guy a show on National TV already...

dearest Mods, or Blake, would you be kind as to add

this NEW Rachel Maddow breakdown of this?


this isn't the same one featuring Doug Wead, from yesterday. this one is from today, Thursday Feb. 16, 2012.

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Oh goodie

I guess they worked out the bugs on how to hide the fix real good this time....

If it ain't a Ron Paul victory I'm going to have to call BS.

Hey Archons', we are taking our planet back and there's nothing you can do about it!


Keep the FIRE ON TO RELEASE THE RESULTS FROM SATURDAYS CAUCUS NOW!!! NOT IN MARCH!!! TRICKY CRAP AGAIN??? NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T ALLOW IT!!!!!!!!!!!! GIVE THEM HELL UNTIL THEY TELL THE TRUTH!! DON'T ALLOW THEM TO WAIT TO RELEASE IT!!! That's another form of FRAUD!!!! If this doesn't smell to you I don't know what else does!

SO WHAT? How do we know there aren't FIXED?

Stuffed or rigged again?? You can't trust them now.

Back to the

count room.

Old lying dogs dye hard

Looks like Charlie isn't going to give in, he will probably fall on the sword instead of giving in. Maybe if a couple dozen Paul supporters dogging him with signs saying (count the vote) would do some thing. Unless he feels real pain or embarrassment over this he is not going to reverse. He believes he is king and probably likes the controversy.

He is already blaming everyone but himself.

The headquarters of these caucuses need to install a recording system that records every call that comes in from the precincts. This would stop all fraud and would be cheap to install. Anyone can recheck figures immediately after entered into system.

All these guys....

...are paid handsomely to do the mittneybama agenda.

They have already cashed the checks months ago so going back now is not an option. Of course, death is a way out, but the button that gets pushed is not theirs to push. It only gets pushed when the puppeteer thinks they will talk to the fbi or someone who is already investigating this corruption and fraud in Maine.

There's A Special Place In Hell

For people who commit voter/election fraud.

Along with five-term Senators and people who breed dogs for profit.

I live in Iowa. I caucused for RP and I know he won our state, but the Iowa GOP were so concerned about their first-in-the-nation status that by declaring RP the winner Iowa
would somehow lose it's importance, or reputation...?


This has got to stop. Enough is enough!

The fire rises.

Regarding Iowa, it's a shame,

Regarding Iowa, it's a shame, really: they could have made history.


even when Ron Paul is leading the count with more than 30% of the total votes shown, it would be impossible to 'predict' a clear winner.

After all, there are no media out there that could dare predict 'any' winner with such a low percentage of votes tabulated.


but seriously..... AHHHHHHAAHHAAHHAA

Freedom is the answer !!

Shocking Report, but is it really?

Hello to all who value our electoral process.

This might be shocking to some but to most, it is the same ol same.

Here is more evidence produced by someone who knows what they are doing. We have been told by the programer below the vote can be flip-flopped or manipulated and no one would know. Read this report below and watch the video again.

The 2012 GOP Primary: Unmasking the Vote Manipulation

"Upon reviewing the Greenville County Precinct election vote data from the 2012, a disturbing
pattern arose: Ron Paul averaged 24% in precincts where less than 250 people voted; he averaged less
than 12 percent in precincts with more than 800. A spreadsheet was created to help me understand
how this could be. Why was Ron Paul’s percentage in large precincts half of that in small precincts?"

Continued here:


This is HUGE and people must shine the light on electronic vote manipulations or "fixed elections" as it is called here.



Things to do:

Some things to do:

- For the local party members: Ask the local chairmen to also make their numbers public. (Provide a place for them to post the numbers.) See if you can get hold of the address list of the party email and use that to email them. B-)

- At any future caucuses: At the start move to modify the rules of necessary so the votes are counted publicly at the caucus, posted at the site, and announced to all attendees (who may then make a copy to check against the state tally).

= = = =
"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Recording system

would be cheap and simple to install, to automatically record every call from precincts. This is a permanent record that could not be tampered with. If a computer is set up then it could be recorded off site as well.

To verify just listen to the tape and compare with results tabulated. The person doing the audit could have a column to check off when results match, no match red X.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed


Dr. Paul gained 37 votes in the two counties leaked (Waldo, Waterville) and trails Mitt by just 157 (was 194). If this trend holds (about 17 more counties to report), Ron Paul will win Maine clearly.


Washington County Released at March Convention!

That's unacceptable. It doesn't take that long to add those results to a total they are already verifying. Keep the pressure on this one!!!

Time to Fudge the Numbers

It gives Maine's GOP leadership enough time to fudge the numbers so they appear less irrational. ;)

How do they take back the media damage

The crime has been commited. Its good to go back and fix it but not the same criminals that cheated in the first place, let the count be open and transparent, let the count be done by other people than the criminals that cheated last time.


Take a good look at Chuck Webster

Would you buy a car from this guy? Ladies, if you were broke down and Chucky pulled over to lend a hand, would you be grateful or terrified. The guy oozes creepiness and guile. Trust Chuck, he'll get it right. LOL
