Votes Automatically Changed from Trump to Clinton!

By Jay Guy – Re-Blogged From IPatriot

Social media reports of votes being automatically switched from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton are flooding in this morning as early voting continues in 37 states.

Lisa Houlette, a resident of Amarillo, Texas, outed this latest attempt at Democratic collusion and corruption on Facebook and was shocked to see her vote for the Republican nominee change to the Democratic nominee.

“Gary and I went to early vote today,” said Lisa. “I voted a straight Republican ticket and as I scrolled to submit my ballot I noticed that the Republican straight ticket was highlighted, however, the Clinton/Kaine box was also highlighted!”

“I tried to go back and change and could not get it to work. I asked for help from one of the workers and she couldn’t get it to go back either. It took a second election person to get the machine to where I could correct the vote to a straight ticket,” she added.

In a Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump race — which, the Beltway keening aside, seems the probable outcome of the primaries — what are the odds the GOP can take the White House, Congress, and the Supreme Court?

If Republicans can unite, not bad, not bad at all.

Undeniably, Democrats open with a strong hand.

There is that famed “blue wall,” those 18 states and D.C. with a combined 242 electoral votes, just 28 shy of victory, that have gone Democratic in every presidential election since 1988.

The wall contains all of New England save New Hampshire; the Acela corridor (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland); plus Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin in the Middle West; and the Pacific coast of California, Oregon, Washington — and Hawaii.

A Tech Manifesto for the GOP Field, Part III: Government Surveillance

By – Re-Blogged From The American Enterprise Institute

Government surveillance represents one of the more challenging technological issues for the Republican field to address because it pits one set of crucial conservative values (national security and a robust homeland defense) against another (privacy, personal freedom, and restraint on the federal government’s power).

What would a principled, appealing Republican stance on surveillance look like?

Fixing Primary Elections

cropped-bob-shapiro.jpg   By Bob Shapiro

After the 2008 Presidential Primary, some people told me they had registered Democrat at the polls (and then back to unenrolled) so that they could vote against Hillary. Others said they had registered as Republican so they could vote against Huckabee.

So, what is a primary election anyway? Very simply, it’s the process that official political parties use to decide which of several of their
