Policy in the Margins: Why Grass-Roots Politics Works

What follows is a generalized breakdown of voting in any given election:

People Percent for Victory
100%, all people 50%, plus 1
70% eligible to vote (excludes aliens, felons, and minors) 35%, plus 1
40% registered to vote (approximately 60% of eligible) 20%, plus 1
20% vote on election day (50% of registered voters) 10%, plus 1
7% almost always vote Republican
7% almost always vote Democrat
6% swing votes 3%, plus1

Three percent of the populations plus one voter is where politicians live and die.

In some local and state elections where turnout may be only 20 percent of registered voters, the margin may be far less than three percent plus one.

The average politician lives in constant fear of alienating any substantial portion of this three percent plus one voter he needs in a hotly contested race to win re-election, or to gain higher office.

What is the best way not to alienate these voters?  Do nothing to make them mad, which almost always means … do nothing.

This is why even when new politicians are elected, little seems to change.  Inertia — or the status quo — is the most potent force in politics.

However, by mobilizing and directing voters rallying around a specific issue, you can change the political environment for a politician or even a group of politicians.  One relatively small group can make it more costly for the politician not to act than it is for him or her to act as you want him to.

This is what is meant when it is said that policy is made at the margins.  Over time, the number and effectiveness of activists determines political success or failure.

This is also why the homosexual lobby, labor unions, and organized groups so often get legislation they want.  They have groups of voters who can, and will, vote on their issue alone.  And they often have workers and sometimes money to use against any politician who crosses them.

By becoming a grass-roots leader, you can, too.

That’s where the fun, and the danger, begins.

Misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution

Fred Elbel.

Website by Fred Elbel, Elbel Consulting Services, LLC

Quite simply, the Fourteenth Amendment currently is being interpreted to grant automatic birthright citizenship to children born in the United States of illegal alien parents (called anchor babies because under the 1965 immigration Act, they act as an anchor that pulls the illegal alien mother and eventually a host of other relatives into permanent U.S. residency). This clearly is contrary to the original intent of Congress and the States in ratifying the Fourteenth Amendment.

While it has been the practice to bestow citizenship to children of illegal aliens, this has never been ruled on by the Supreme Court.

Professors Peter Schuck and Rogers Smith have noted1 that:

“The present guarantee under American law of automatic birthright citizenship to the children of illegal aliens can operate…as one more incentive to illegal migration and violation by nonimmigrant aliens already here [.] When this attraction is combined with the powerful lure of the expanded entitlements conferred upon citizen children and their families by the modern welfare state, the total incentive effect of birthright citizenship may well become significant.”

Election Fraud

Below, I received the partial list of voter fraud examples from the November 2012 Presidential Election that most of us have seen over the past few months.  This time I received the list in an e-mail from an elected official with an earnest question of what to do about it.  I’m certainly no expert, but here are the thoughts I sent in reply:

There are many reasons that we lost the election, and voter fraud was part of it — but not all of it.I saw an article go by this week that said there are groups pursuing the examples you sent.So, hopefully, some of that will be flushed out soon

I don’t see it happening, but I’m praying that top-level Republicans (working with other conservative parties like the Constitution Party / Libertarian Party / etc) will see the need for an organized project to watch every vote at every voting precinct in the nation and ensure that voter fraud is wiped out as a potential for swaying the election.It needs to be a proactive effort — not a post-election litigation effort.

We need to:

  • Organize and train poll watchers in every state / township / precinct.
  • Organize and train Republican election judges in every state / township / precinct.
  • Video cameras in each voting location to record the entire day or events of concern by the poll-watchers (even if it’s just smart phone cameras).
  • Know how many ballots are taken to each voting location
  • Know how many ballots are completed / voided / spoiled / returned from every voting location
  • Know the vote counts recorded on each electronic voter machine at each voting location (where used)
  • Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any effort to commit voter fraud
  • Get rid of all electronic voting machines

The only thing that will wipe out voter fraud is having well-trained eyes on every voting booth the day of the election.

Plus, Brian Bollmann, a lowly chair of a county Tea Party, 3 days before an election, shouldn’t be running around begging for Republican Election Judges for the city of St. Louis.

But that all takes money, and who sees it as important enough to foot the bill?!?  It wasn’t in 2012; will it be in 2014 or 2016? I hope it will.

We will certainly continue to work to prevent voter fraud in our little corner of the world as best we can!

FWIW, I kept saying that Romney’s downfall would be that…

“Romney wouldn’t be willing to go to the mat.Obama would go to the mat.Romney wouldn’t.”

Romney had Obama down on the mat and let him back up.Too bad.

Below is the partial list of voter fraud examples that instigated the e-mail exchange:

From Bill O’Reilly’s message board:Most everyone suspected fraud, but these numbers prove it and our government and media refuse to do anything about it.As each state reported their final election details, the evidence of voter fraud is astounding. Massive voter fraud has been reported in areas of OH and FL, with PA, WI and VA, all are deploying personnel to investigate election results.Here are just a few examples of what has surfaced with much more to come.

  • In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).
  • In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney.  (Another statistical impossibility).
  • In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.
  • In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.
  • The National SEAL Museum , a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.
  • Palm Beach County , FL had a 141% voter turnout.
  • In Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

Re: Election statistics

We are currently in the process of analyzing last week’s election—what went right, what went wrong, and what we can do better.

While obviously we did not accomplish everything we set out to do, I wanted to pass along some of the highlights, which include Mitt Romney’s historic win here in Missouri, as well as our overwhelming victories in the General Assembly and at the county level.

I’ve also attached the county-by-county presidential margin map and maps of our seats in the State House and Senate.

A more complete analysis is expected in the coming weeks, and I welcome your thoughts and input.

Finally, I’d like to thank you all for your hard work this election cycle on behalf of all of our candidates—those who won and those who came up short.

2012 General Election Statistics

President

  • Despite Mitt Romney’s loss nationally, Missouri solidified its position as a red state in presidential elections.
  • In fact, Missouri has gone for the GOP nominee for president in 4 consecutive elections for the first time in state history.
  • Romney won the state by more than 263,000 votes—the largest margin of victory by any candidate in a presidential election since 1984.
  • Romney won 111 of Missouri’s counties. His largest margin of victory came in Osage County, where he won 77% of the vote (a margin of nearly 56 points).
  • Romney won 107 counties with at least 55% of the vote.
  • Romney won 96 counties with at least 60% of the vote.
  • Romney won 34 counties with at least 70% of the vote.

U.S. Congress

  • Republicans will now hold a 6-2 advantage in Missouri’s congressional delegation—and half of Missouri’s GOP congressional delegation is now made up of women.
  • All 6 of our victorious Republican candidates won their district with at least 60% of the vote.
  • Across the state, more than 1.4 million Missourians cast a ballot for a Republican congressional candidate. By contrast, just over 1.1 million votes were cast for a Democrat candidate—a difference of well over 300,000 voters.
  • 108 out of Missouri’s 114 counties are fully represented in Congress by a Republican representative.

Missouri General Assembly

Missouri House of Representatives

  • Republicans increased the size of our historic margin in the State House—netting 4 seats and increasing our majority from 106 to 110.
  • Our 110-53 margin is the first time in history Republicans have held a veto-proof majority in the Missouri House.

Missouri Senate

  • Republican candidates won 4 out of the 5 competitive Senate races, including our open seats in SD 25, as well as Districts 3, 17, and 19, which have MRP ratings below 50%.
  • In addition, 6 GOP candidates for Senate had no serious Democratic opposition.
  • In the Missouri Senate, Republicans hold a veto-proof 24-10 majority.

Other Races

  • Lt. Governor Peter Kinder defeated his Democratic challenger by more than 105,000 votes.

County Races

  • We are currently in the process of compiling a list of our victories at county courthouses across the state. This is a time-intensive process; however, according to our early findings, it is clear that dozens of Republicans won seats previously held by Democrats, while only a handful of GOP officeholders were defeated.
  • This is in addition to our significant gains during the 2010 cycle, when Republicans won 96 new seats at the county level. Republicans now hold a commanding majority of county offices across the state.

Just Happened To:

By Don Fredrick
September 30, 2012

Obama just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.

P.S. If Obama just happens to win reelection on November 6, remember that hyperinflation just happens to be the inescapable consequence of printing trillions of dollars to cover massive government deficits.

Those Who Cast The Votes Decide Nothing

By David O.

“Those who cast the votes decide nothing.  Those who count the votes decide everything.” 

Joseph Stalin

I’ve been saying it for the better part of a year.  His majesty, king Obama will not, he cannot allow himself to be defeated!  If he cannot get us into a declared war (in which case he stays in…watch closely what’s going on in the Middle-East), he will so corrupt the election process using fraud, and just down-right stealing of this election, that his re-election will be assured.

Now, there’s this…

http://yourdaddy.net/2012/04/08/how-barack-obama-will-steal-the-2012-presidential-election-vetobama/

(which slipped by me at first, but was brought to my attention today by my son)

So now, a Spanish company, with no US citizens on it’s board, and zero accountability to US voters will count some of our votes in in 4 states (plus DC) in November.  This will include votes cast by our military based overseas.  Spain BTW is mostly controlled by a liberal, socialist government.  The country is in financial crisis, and is begging for bail-outs.  Obama has been going to bat for them, putting pressure on lenders.  Do you see a connection?  Do you really think their count will be unbiased?  Do you wonder who really owns this company?  (we will probably never know)  The current CEO of this Spanish company was previously the VP and CFO for a telecom company based in…Chicago! (imagine that)

h/t yourdaddy.net

Pile that on top of the George Soros “SOS Project”, where he (and others) piled millions into getting liberal Democrats elected to Secretary of State positions in many states.  Why?…because the Secretary of State determines how votes are counted in all states, and in a close election, they decide who is the winner.  Don’t be fooled, this project is not dead…just in hiding.

Both sides have thousands of lawyers lined-up to challenge the election results in November.  With good reason! This will likely be the most corrupt election in US history.  Watch closely!

Now, read that quote from Joseph Stalin again!
