The origin of my Ohio Election Fraud blog was that in 2004 I was an eyewitness to massive election fraud by Secretary of State Blackwell, who is in my opinion a crook and a traitor to his country for what he did. His swindle caused Bush to be the victor in the election, even though the Ohio electors had not been legally appointed. The mainstream media suppressed the information. Hence this blog.
The present Secretary of State Husted appears, unfortunately, to be of the same ilk as Blackwell, doing everything he can to disenfranchise people of color, young people, and the working poor. He is so brazen about it that he contumaciously violated a court order, in order to prevent early voting in Democratic districts only. Only when his attorneys reminded him that he might be doing jail time for that, did he relent. After he wasted taxpayer resources appealing the judicial ruling, he then complied only partially with the Court's order, probably provoking yet another round of litigation, the sole purpose of which is to PREVENT people from voting. It is incredible that a person who has sworn an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution would behave like such a low life.
There is a big difference in the world, however, between 2004, and 2012, and that is the technology of social media.
We now have smartphones which act as cameras and as video cameras, cell phones which act as cameras and limited video cameras, flip cameras, texting, emails, social networks.
This time around when the first frauds are revealed at 6:05 a.m. on election day, the whole world can know about them, see them in graphic detail, and hear what people have to say about them, by 6:10 a.m.
It is imperative that the people of the State of Ohio prepare themselves, get their batteries charged, get their social networks in place and online, get their storage devices cleaned out and ready to collect data, get all of their devices and networks ready, get their email addresses in order.
Those of you who haven't yet gotten set up with mobile technology and/or with social networks, there will never be a more important time in your life to do so.
Also, it is imperative that you organize.
In 2004 Ohio did a great job of organizing (a) before the election to register voters, and (b) after the election to protest the fraud and disenfranchisement which occurred.
However the people were unprepared to detect and monitor fraud, or to challenge the legal violations in court. It would have been hoped that the Democratic Party would have done so, but it actually did precious little.
This time Ohio needs to prepare and organize even better, and to use the new tool that is available which was not available in 2004... social media.
One organization that is working on this is Video The Vote.
Their website is here: http://www.videothevote.org
Their twitter account is here: @videothevote
Work with them.
Also many of the frauds will involve computers. People are going to need technology-savvy geniuses to monitor and detect the types of frauds that will be going on.
If you know of, or are forming, voter protection groups which will be organizing to publicize fraud and disenfranchisement and/or to combat it, please send me a "comment" letting me know the details, and I will post their information right here, and will keep updating this post:
