National Primary Your Congressman Day

Not sure what day is “National Primary Your Congressman Day”, so we’ll make it today.

At all levels of governance, if you believe your city, county, state, country are headed in the wrong direction, your jobs three:

  • Find the name of the incumbents
  • Educate your neighbors
  • Vote them out in the Primary.

…that is, if you still believe in your Party’s platform.  Should the incumbent win in the Primary, it’s your call whether or not to stick with them in the General Election.  Remember, you never waste your vote.

From Ed Martin…

Dear Friend,

http://www.whiteflagcongress.com

Did you know: today is National Primary Your Member of Congress Day!*  All across America, men and women are waking up to the fact that the Congress – both parties! – is in service of themselves and their special interest supporters … not the American people and the Constitution.  And regular folks – like you! – are filing to run for Congress against these incumbents who fail to do their duties.

One example of a failed Congress: last year, members of Congress gave themselves an automatic salary increase.  However, Congress also gave Social Security recipients receive no “cost of living adjustment” increase.  That’s right: your Congressman got more take-home-pay and you or your senior friends are told to keep living on last year’s social security even as inflation and costs go up.

So let’s get back to National Primary Your Member of Congress Day!  Is it really worth doing?

Yes, yes it is.  Because just last night refugees to America were arrested for plotting terror (the refugee program funded by Paul Ryan’s Congress a few weeks ago!).  Because Planned Parenthood announced yesterday that in addition to abortions, they will fund Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President (Planned Parenthood funded by Paul Ryan’s Congress a few weeks ago!).  And because the Paul Ryan-Obama Omnibus bill of 2015 includes quadrupling immigration visas (more jobs for foreigners, less for Americans, brought to you by Paul Ryan’s Congress!).

In this short email, we won’t try to cover this Congress’ betrayal on education (they funded Common Core!) and guns (they funded Obama’s background check gun grab!).  This Congress issues press releases, offers sound bites, and takes meaningless show votes.  To try to fool us into thinking they care about us or the Constitution!

It’s a disaster but you already know this.  So, NOW YOU HAVE TO ACT.

Please consider filing for office against your incumbent member of Congress.  People will help you run including me.  Even as we all work to elect a new President – one who actually abides by the Constitution – we need a Congress that puts Americans first!

Email me (edmartin1791@gmail.com) to find out more.  “Making America great again” seems far off because right now we need to save Americans from Congress. Don’t despair: we can do it.  File today.

All the best.

Ed Martin

President, Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum

* I am making it today.  I hope you will join me.

It makes me think of the song, Old McDonald (EIEIO)

Every Incumbent… …EVERY INCUMBENT… …OUT!

Voter Id

FROM FRIEDA’S DESK….

We all have heard about the need for Voter ID at the polling places. I have worked elections since 2010 and I appreciate the benefit of having proper government issued picture identification at the polling place. I will communicate more information about this topic in the coming weeks/months.

In the meantime, I am writing to let you know of an important opportunity to help protect our elections from voter fraud and to ask for your help. As many of you are aware, Missouri does not currently require a photo ID for voters on election day. In 2006, the Missouri Supreme Court declared Missouri’s voter ID law unconstitutional and our state legislature has failed to amend the Missouri Constitution for the last nine years.

This lack of proper identification of voters puts the integrity of our elections at risk. Examples of voter impersonation abound. Consider the case of Sharee Sizemore. In 2012, when she went to vote in Jackson County, she found that someone had already voted her ballot, most likely by using a discarded piece of mail. While Ms. Sizemore was able to cast a provisional ballot, it is unclear whether that ballot counted. A photo voter ID requirement would make it more difficult to perpetuate this type of fraud and would give authorities a photo of the impersonator.

In our society, there is little that does not require photo identification – from opening a bank account to entering a federal building. As such, it is understandable that the vast majority of voters support such a common sense approach to securing our elections. This editorial contains interesting statistics on voter ID.  Click here.

In response to this need, Jay Ashcroft recently filed an initiative petition to amend the Missouri Constitution to allow for a photo voter ID requirement in Missouri. The goal is to collect enough signatures to put the amendment on the ballot in the 2016 election.

Please visit the website http://www.ProtectTheVoteMO.com to read the proposed ballot language and answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the petition.

A successful initiative petition requires a minimum number of signatures be gathered in six of Missouri’s eight Congressional districts. The signature requirements have been broken down by county to determine how many are needed from each county. In most counties, if we can get 20-30 people to collect signatures from their friends, family and neighbors, the goal will be met.

In the coming days, Jay Ashcroft or someone from the “Protect the Vote” committee will be contacting you to ask for your help collecting signatures in your county or even serving as a county chairperson.

Allow me to encourage you to help with this worthwhile project and get photo voter ID on the ballot in 2016.

Thank you, in advance, for your help. Working together, we can make sure Missouri remains a great place to live!

Help CNN With Debate Questions For Tonight’s Debate

CNN is looking for help w/ questions for the Democrat debate.

Their unbiased, crack, fair and balanced staff has come up with:

  • What’s your favorite reality show?

  • How cool is it to be as cool as you are?

  • What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

  • When you become president, will you fly in a jet fighter?

  • In your past, were you more? …or less awesome?

  • Can you name a Supreme Court case?

  • How many letters were in the alphabet when you were born?

  • Aren’t Republicans just real meanies?

  • What’s your favorite color?

Maybe that’s why they had to shorten in from 3 to 2 hours…

Voter Thoughts On Missouri 08/05/14 Ballot Questions

From Missouri Voter Jason:

Here are my thoughts about the proposed constitutional amendments.

#1. “Right to Farm.”  The language is so broad that it is, to me, meaningless.  There are statutes on the books (Section 537.295 of the Missouri Revised Statutes) that address the issue of “nuisance suits” that seem to be the core argument in favor of the amendment.  I’m leaning against the amendment, but am open to argument in favor.

#5 “Unalienable Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”  While I think the language of this amendment has been poorly drafted, it aims to solidify the right to keep and bear arms and removes an impediment to concealed carry. I favor the amendment.

#7 “Increase Sales and Use Tax for Transportation.” I am opposed to this tax increase.  I’m taxed enough already.  More philosophically, I question whether sales tax should be used for transportation expenditures.  I generally prefer charging service users, and a fuel or tire or other ratable tax more directly associates the funding source with the expenditure purpose. (The advent of hybrid and electric vehicles, however, foils the purpose of the gasoline tax in making road users pay for roads; so, another (fair) way of apportioning the cost of roads to users needs to be developed.)  If more money is needed for roads (and I must be persuaded of the need), then a roads-related tax needs to be proposed.  I am opposed to using road-related funds for mass transit projects, aviation, ports, and the other transporation systems that would be funded by the proposed sales and use tax amendment. Again, philosophically, I would generate funding for these type projects from the users of those modes of transporation.

#8. “Veterans Lottery Ticket.”  I am opposed to the state operating a lottery, so the specification of a particular kind of lottery ticket to fund the state veterans homes, etc., is not something I support.  I believe these expenditures should be covered by everyone in the state (which means sales and/or income tax sources), not just those who gamble.

#9. “Security of Electronic Communications and Data.”  I support the amendment to include “electronic communications and data” in the list of protections against unreasonable search or seizure.  This amendment, incidentally, is consistent with the recent US Supreme Court ruling (Riley v. California and United States v. Wurie) that held a warrant was required before a cell phone could be searched by the authorities.  This ruling essentially extends Fourth Amendment (US Constitution) protections to at least some forms of electronic communications and data.  Amending the Missouri constitution to explicitly include electronic communications and data brings the state constitution into the modern world where we have not only papers and effects that are safe from warrantless search, but electronic information as well.

Missouri Senate Bill 375 And House Bill 773

From Laura Hausladen:

I am sending you this email to ask you to help with the effort to pass the “Making paper ballots the official ballot in MO” bills.  These are companion bills–the Senate one is SB 375, the House’s is HB 773.

.

What the Bills Will Do:

  1. End the use of the touch screen voting machines (called DREs) for all but the handicapped.  (No more DREs could be purchased and the old ones could only be used by the handicapped.  Ballot marking devices would replace them for use by all handicapped voters.  (These machines create paper ballots so that there is a physical ballot that can be used in recounts and audits.)
  2. Require that there be hand-counted publicly viewable audits of at least 5% of the ballots before the election is certified. (This is not much of a change from what is already required. However, it is extremely important because the opti-scan machines, which count the paper ballots in essentially every county in Missouri,  have also been proved to be hackable just by tampering with the memory cards that get inserted into them.)
  3. Ensure that the public has the ability to gain access to the election records and ballots after the election has been certified, without having to first fight and win a battle in court.

.

Why We Need These Bills:

  1. A knowledgeable computer expert with access to JUST ONE of the DREs in St Louis (or one of the other counties throughout the state) could change the outcome of a statewide election.
  2. If the vote were tampered with in some way, it would be virtually impossible to prove that this had been done.
  3. Right now if a re-count is necessary, all of the votes cast on the DREs are not actually recounted, because there is nothing tangible to recount.  The program is just run again.  (Interestingly enough, when this was done in one MO recount, the re-run submitted a vote that was one vote off from the original count.  How do you explain that?!)
  4. Right now there are vendor programmers whose lines of code are not able to be viewed by any of our state’s county clerks or legislators or members of the computer programming literate public, and these ‘unknown’ programmers are responsible for how vast numbers of Missourian’s votes are cast and how virtually ALL of Missourian’s votes are counted.
  5. Computer viruses could change the results of elections and no one would even know that this had happened.
  6. Missouri’s Constitution provides for open elections.  Our elections are NOT open if the general public doesn’t have access to a process which they themselves can understand/verify the means by which their vote is recorded and counted.  Paper ballots and publicly viewable hand counts are the only way to achieve open elections in Missouri!

.
What You Need to Do!  Steps 1 & 2 are ESSENTIAL and only take a couple minutes. 
(Don’t worry if you don’t have time to do more! But DO THIS!)

  1. Fill out witness form for SB 375 BELOW by clicking the link  and recording your name and address.  Add comments as simple or as thorough as you would like.  (Copy them before you submit so that you can use them on the next witness form, and in case your submission returns the phrase “database not selected”.  If this happens, just wait a bit and try again.)
  2. Fill out witness form for HB 773 BELOW by clicking the link.
  3. Forward this email or one of your own with the links to the witness forms and ask people to fill them out. The more there are the more likely this bill will get passed out of committee.
  4. Send email (preferable), or call the Senators (listed at the end of this email) to tell them you want them to support this bill.  (Or do both!)  They are the ones who must vote it out of committee so that it can get scheduled for a vote on the floor of the Senate.) REMEMBER, if you are one of their constituents, be sure to let them know!
  5. Send email (preferable),  or call these Representatives to tell them you want them to support this bill.  (Or do both!)
  6. Write Sen. Brian Nieves to thank him for sponsoring SB 375; write Rep. Sue Entlicher to thank her for sponsoring HB773 and hearing it in her committee; write Sen. Wasson to thank him for hearing it in his committee.
  7. Attend the hearings on Monday March 25th at 2:00 p.m. in the Senate Lounge for SB 375, and on Tuesday March 26th at 8:15 in Hearing room 5 for HB 773

.

Witness form link for HB 773 — Paper Ballots <- But do this too!

.

CONFERENCE CALL:

Feel free to join the Conference Call this evening with the non-partisan citizen group who are spearheading the push for this bill.  We will attempt to answer any and all questions.  We will also outline what we need to do to get this bill passed.
TONIGHT! Wed. March 20th at 8:30
