Small brother to bust election riggersSubmitted by tumetuestumefai... on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 11:05
I follow Ron Paul campaigns since end of 2007 and after having read now Ron Paul is favorable to 93% I wonder even more just why he is polling so low in official straw polls and then anyway his supporters sometimes pick a bulk of delegates.
For example: Ron Paul and his supporters clearly won already the very first state Iowa big time - so far 14 delegates out of 28 and that is still not the final number - yet establisment and media deceived (not only) American people with the never certified and non-binding straw poll, hastily claiming victory for Romney and then after weeks of mess for Santorum... Imagine what a devastating initial momentum the Ron Paul campaign would have from the very beginning of the GOP candidate selection process if the Iowa crushing victory (so far 14 to 1) would be widely known back in January...
I might have an idea how Ron Paul voters can find out whether their votes were counted properly or not. A "video exit poll".
what is needed for this:
-The (local) volunteer(s), Ron Paul supporters with a tripod and camera able to be at his local polling place for the whole day. The camera could have a nice sign with something like "Ron Paul Voters Count" on it.
-Ron Paul voters should spread the word and be wearing any visually identifiable Ron Paul gear (T-shirts, badges, hats...) when going to the polling place to vote.
The volunteer arrives early outside the polling place, points and focuses camera at the entrance for a stable shot, switches date and timestamp on and continually records all people coming in and out, having made sure he/she has enough memory and batteries to record for the whole day.
The video may be reviewed at later stage and one can count the people wearing Ron Paul gear. Alternatively after having voted, the RP voters can come in front of the camera with the banner "Ron Paul Voters Count" on it and say a statement to the meaning "I, [name], just voted for Ron Paul at the poll in [name of the place]" or something along those lines. Date and timestamp is provided by camera and the record then becomes evidence - I believe something like a "video affidavit" where your signature is substituted by your face stating on record you have voted for Ron Paul.
After the poll is closed the video is be reviewed and the Ron Paul voters counted. If Ron Paul gets counted substantially less votes at the poll than the number of people on your video wearing RP gear or saying the statement to the camera, then you can spread the word, get them sign affidavits if needed and get the election riggers busted.
This of course can be combined with the affidavit and exit poll action at the place as i.e. proposed here: http://www.dailypaul.com/236316/libertyusa-pac-will-stop-ele...
A picture is worth a thousand words, and especially in the age of TV being substituted by YouTube and such like, a video can be even worth of saving world from the hands of fraudsters who want it destroyed using their puppet politicians (s)elected using fraud.
Many people now have digital cameras with sufficient memory to record many hours of video, let's use them for something really important. It can be fun too.
This of course can be used in any future election where an "establishment unfriendly" candidate is in the race and election fraud is likely. I believe you can legally record video in a public place anywhere in the USA.
I think all the money donated to the campaigns and all the effort and enthusiasm will get wasted if the voters are unable to control the key thing - make sure the election itself is not rigged as many indicia suggest. The evil prevails if good people do nothing.
What do you think? Have you any suggestions of improvements?
If you like this idea and find it viable make sure it does not get burried.
