Prelude to an ABSOLUTELY BULLETPROOF Voting System

It’s not for lack of understanding. We KNOW how to make an ABSOLUTELY BULLETPROOF voting system that would allow people their option of heading to the polls, kiosks, voting by mail, or voting online, complete with full but very economical multi-part paper trails, built-in automated and advanced fraud detection, and multi-level auditing.
 
The problem isn’t lack of know-how. We’ve had this licked for decades, and for electronic versions, including online, for more than a decade.
 
The problem rests with the fact that the Jet Propulsion Laboratory which landing the explorers on Mars is full of experts who know how to land explorers on Mars whereas state legislatures and members of Congress are NOT full of voting systems experts, but instead, are full of lawyers.
 
Lawyers are good at writing laws. They’re terrible at assessing the various designs of voting systems, much less designing them. They CAN’T design them. Their brains just don’t work that way.
 
But mine does, as do the brains of many other systems analysts, database developers, and security systems specialists.
 
The question isn’t whether or not we can build a a voting system the Dems can’t hack. The question is whether or not we will ever be allowed to do so.

How to ELIMINATE Election Fraud

Eliminating election fraud is neither difficult nor expensive, provided those developing the election system know what they’re doing.

Sadly, most election systems were developed by legislators, not auditors.  Only paper ballots can provide the requisite audit trail required for full and complete assurance that election fraud has not been committed. All state legislators who refuse to support both voter ID and paper ballots are either ignorant or traitors. Either way, get rid of them, as they’re a huge danger to our Republic.

Our country desperately needs a NEFDAPP – National Election Fraud Detection and Prevention Program.  This can not be staffed by government bureaucrats.  Not only do they not have a clue as to properly secure an election, but they also pose the greatest threat to election security.

When you gather a team of auditors (experts at detecting fraud), computer scientists, computer/IT security specialists, and information managers, you wind up with a very capable and highly secure system.

Here’s what such a system looks like:

1.  All ballots will be paper.  It’s difficult to miscount paper ballots when they’re secured and counted under the watchful eyes of properly selected monitoring teams.  It’s impossible to hack a paper ballot system that uses properly developed monitoring and auditing that has access to the original paper ballots.  Even an electronic voting system requires a printed paper trail verified by each voter in order to detect and counter voting fraud.  Bits and bytes are simply too easily hacked.

2. All ballots will be opened, tallied, and put in vaults by properly trained and supervised three-party teams, one Democrat, one Independent, and one Republican, supervised by a non-party-affiliated judge held in high esteem for his/her impartiality.

 
3. Original tally sheets are stored in the vault with the ballots. Tallies will be issued for each box, each district, and the state as a whole.
 
4. No individual has independent access to the vaults; vault access requires access codes from all three monitors and the supervising judge (or each of their alternates).
 
5. All tallies are verified by random samples. In order to achieve a 99% confidence level within +/- 1%, you need:
 
  • 1,000 ballots require a sample size of 943.
  • 10,000 ballots require a sample size of 6,247.
  • 100,000 ballots require a sample size of 14,267.
  • 1,000,000 ballots require a sample size of 16,369.
  • 10,000,000 ballots require a sample size of 16,613.
  • 100,000,000 ballots require a sample size of 16,638.
As you can see, the larger the collection of ballots, the smaller the percentage is required to be sampled in order to validate the tally sheets. Thus, it’s better for each state to secure, then aggregate the ballots before counting them.
 
6. No ballots or tally sheets should be destroyed until after all four conditions have been met:
a. Each state’s full collection of ballots has been audited and validated by independent non-state-specific experts.
b. The election commission accepts that state’s final tally.
c. Any and all legal challenges to the vote have run their full course through the legal system, including any and all appeals.
d. At least one year has passed since Voting Day.
 
Again, all four conditions must be satisfied. If any condition remains unsatisfied, the original allots and the original tally sheets must be kept.
 

7. If at any time the auditing process reveals a statistically significant probability of voter fraud for any voting district, then a full recount for that district will be accomplished under the eyes of the three monitors and the supervising judge, and members of the voting public will be polled via random sample in order to detect tampering (theft or changes) or the original voting ballots. Once all parties are satisfied as to the accuracy of the recount, a corrected tally sheet will be attached to the original vetted (signed) by the monitoring team as well as all senior members of the auditing team.

8.  Monitoring teams will themselves be subject to independent monitoring, review, and auditing.

9.  All persons involved in the voting process must be thoroughly vetted, with no history of any criminal or other misconduct.

10.  Fines and prison times for misconduct during the voting process will be proscribed by law for each type of offense, and mandatory.

Election Fraud Alert – Trump is Correct – Clinton and the DNC ARE Rigging the Election

The reason Donald Trump repeatedly warns that the election is rigged, is because THE ELECTION IS BEING RIGGED.

Don’t believe me? Here’s sixteen minutes of hidden video of the Clinton and DNC staffers bragging about how the Clinton Campaign and DNC have been inciting violence at Trump rallies.

If you want more video, watch Part II, another sixteen minutes, this time bragging about how they’re creating MASSIVE voter fraud being perpetrated against the American people.

Hell yes, Trump is warning about “Rigged Elections” He’s doing so because both Clinton Campaign staffers and DNC staffers keep getting caught, on camera, bragging about how they’re rigging the election, their ties to Clinton, and their ties to the DNC, including the train of money involved.

Don’t you EVER believe the mudstream media when they say Trump’s claims are “groundless.”

These to videos are PRIMA FACIA EVIDENCE — PROOF — of Clinton and the DNC’s activities rigging the election.

Grow a brain, people. This election is America’s LAST CHANCE to throw off the CRIMINALS like Hillary and the Demoncrap party and go straight. Please do NOT be so STUPID as to elect the vicious enabler who harassed the victims of her serial rapist husband.

Her treasonous activities trading America’s future to our enemies in exchange for lining Clinton’s coffers is well-documented:

Even a summary list of Bill and Hillary’s many crimes comes to FORTY-SEVEN PAGES dating all the way back to the 1950s as detailed in Arkansas Connections.

And here’s an accounting of Hillary Clinton’s Top 13 Acts of TREASON against the United States of America.

Hillary Clinton couldn’t care LESS about YOU or the United States of America. The ONLY thing she cares about is continuing to build her power and wealth at YOUR expense. No country has ever survived, much less thrived, by electing CRIMINALS.

Again, people: Wake Up! Vote Trump!

*** POST EXCERPT ***

The fact that is this election is being rigged by Hillary Clinton and DNC staffers has already been PROVEN to be a fact, namely through twelve months of investigation, including more than half an hour of the election fraud criminals themselves bragging about how they’ve been getting away with it.
 
Only fools believe it can’t happen. It IS happening, right now, and here’s the collection of videos that PROVE it:

Proper Use of Voting Machines WILL Stop Election Fraud

If you were to listen to an average modern discussion about election fraud, you might only wait minutes before someone mentions “the obvious problem” and starts talking about voting machines, often citing them as a severe security risk, if not the root of all evil.  The problem of election fraud, however, existed millennia before humans first understood the nature of electricity, not to mention computers, modern election systems, and the Internet.  The fact remains that most people don’t trust voting machines because people tend not to trust that which they don’t understand.

Overview:  There are immense technical, sociological, political, and psychological hurdles which prevent individuals, society, and governments from trusting and using properly-designed electronic voting systems to eliminate election fraud.  Regardless of these hurdles, however, the fact remains that while all election systems are subject to many forms of fraud and bias, only a properly-designed electronic voting system provides the most safeguards, controls, and audit trails to minimize fraud while simultaneously providing various automated mechanisms to minimize the many biases inherent in paper-based election systems.

Before we get into the details, let’s touch on a few key concepts, namely the difference between a mere machine and a system, along with both types of voting fraud and bias which must be dealt with in any effective system.

THREE KEY CONCEPTS:

1) Machines vs Systems:  Although these two terms are related, they are not synonymous.  Not only can multiple machines be a part of a larger system, but multiple systems can be contained in a single machine.  Furthermore, for millennia various voting systems have existed comprised of nothing more complicated than a count of hands witnessed by the masses and recorded by a single numerical inscription on a piece of wood or stone.  Yet amazingly, such a simple system has many of the safeguards we seek in an electronic voting system.  We need only be able to identify what they were, what’s missing, and figure out how to safely, effectively, and securely incorporate them into our electronic system.

A system is a set of interacting or interdependent component parts forming a complex/intricate whole.  Every system is delineated by its spatial and temporal boundaries, surrounded and influenced by its environment, described by its structure and purpose and expressed in its functioning. The term system may also refer to a set of rules that governs structure or behavior.

Put simply, a system is a “black box” that accepts inputs, does various things on the inputs, and produces outputs.  The human body is a system.  A teacher’s method for determining class grades is a system.  Our national election process is a system.

A machine is a tool containing one or more parts that uses energy to perform an intended action. Machines are usually powered by mechanical, chemical, thermal, or electrical means, and are often motorized. Historically, a power tool also required moving parts to classify as a machine. However, the advent of electronics has led to the development of power tools without moving parts that are considered machines.  Computers themselves are considered machines that process and move information.

2) Bias:  A bias results in a failure to accurately perceive reality.  It is an inclination or outlook to present or hold a partial perspective, often accompanied by a refusal to consider the possible merits of alternative points of view. Biases can be learned implicitly within cultural contexts. People may develop biases toward or against an individual, an ethnic group, a nation, a religion, a social class, a political party, theoretical paradigms and ideologies within academic domains, or a species.  Biased means one-sided, lacking a neutral viewpoint, or not having an open mind. Bias can come in many forms and is related to prejudice and intuition.

In voting systems, the mere placement of candidates on a ballot sheet can introduce bias, with candidates listed first or higher on the sheet or monitor tending to receive more votes.  In science and engineering, a bias is a systematic error. Statistical bias is an unfair sampling of a population, or to an estimation process that does not give accurate results on average.  For example, when less than the entire population votes, it introduces statistical bias that results in election results that may reflect the will of the voters, but not the will of the people as a whole.  Similarly, requiring a group of people to show their hands introduces more than one major bias with the potential to severely distort election results.

Eliminating biases is an important concept in the proper design of an election system.  However, attempts to correct biases are often fraught with complex issues, not the least of which includes one faction blaming the other of attempting to influence the election.  Generally speaking, while it’s entirely appropriate to eliminate front-end biases such as name placement on a sheet or monitor, or ensuring that all voters have reasonable access to the polls, attempting to correct even known biases after the voting has take place is usually prohibited.

Major categories of bias include cognitive bias, conflicts of interest, statistical bias, contextual bias, and prejudice.  Reducing or eliminating the many kinds of bias in an electronic voting system requires understanding the detailed and sometimes complex nature of each of dozens of specific biases.

3) Fraud:  Electoral fraud or vote rigging is illegal interference with the process of an election. Acts of fraud affect vote counts to bring about an election result, whether by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both. What constitutes electoral fraud under law varies from country to country.

While bias is usually the cause of inadvertent skewing of voting results, fraud is intentional in nature, an attempt to change the outcome to reflect something other than the will of the people.  Although minimizing or eliminating election bias is desirable, it is absolutely imperative to freedom itself that nations combat fraud on all fronts.  A failure to do so results in a wide range of problems from general voter apathy to civil unrest, and if severe, has been known to result in revolution and the overthrow — if not physical elimination — of the offending government or political party engaged in fraud.

As with bias, reducing or eliminating fraud in an electronic voting system requires a thorough understanding of the many avenues through which fraud can be introduced.  Only some of these techniques are electronic in nature, while the rest involve policies, monitoring, along with the many highly effective tools, techniques and procedures developed to mitigate and even eliminate fraud.

We cannot rely on any machine to provide this protection by itself, whether that machine is a lever-pulled, chad-punching machine of paper and steel, an electronic voting kiosk, a website, or a phone app.  A properly designed, fraud and bias-mitigating electronic voting system incorporates a many-vectored, multi-layered approach combining interleaved elements of both human and computer validation, authentication, encryption, and auditing designed to both prevent fraud as well as detect any evidence of fraud both during and after the fact.  When such a system is properly designed, these complex safeguards are almost entirely transparent to the user, no more difficult than making a withdrawal from an ATM or your bank.  The system is also designed to make it very simple to be implemented by minimally trained agents in the field, essentially as simply as pulling the machines into power, then the Internet, and turning it on, much the same as one might relocate their Ooma Telo, a VoIP internet telephone, while maintaining the rigorous security protocols inherent in these devices.  Field inspectors and auditors, however, would have significantly more important duties to ensure the integrity of the system, and their own backgrounds would subject to the same scrutiny as the machines and the election processes themselves.

Conclusion:  Taken together and implemented properly, with multiple layers of security and safeguards, protecting an electronic voting system process would be a relatively inexpensive yet immensely powerful accomplish, one that is many times more difficult to break than even the most secure of banks.

ADDENDUM:

Here’s another workable solution:

1. Start with paper copies of all ballots, even if it’s a small, voter-verified printout. If electronic voting is used, all votes SHALL be initialed by the individual voter.

 
2. Each vote cast SHALL be given a unique alphanumeric identifier known only to the individual voter, who shall be supplied a printed copy of this identifier, along with a list of their selections. They can check their selections online at any time for a period of between immediately and up to 10 years after casting their vote, and the full status of their selection will be given (accepted, flagged, denied, etc.) by the same system that’s automatically counting the votes.
 
3. Conduct properly-devised exit polls (mandatory, non-attributable)
 
4. Using three-person identification, with one person fror each of the two leading parties and on registered independent, with two county commissioners as a separate authentication, perform random sampling of all printouts at all voting stations and individual kiosks/booths.
 
5. Compare all electronic summary reports with the random samples. Wherever the various exceeds a certain very tight tolerance, say, 0.5%, increase the sample size to achieve a 0.1% C.I. and count them again, this time with three additional regional overseers, again, one from each of the two major parties and an independent.
 
6. Record all, both scanned and sampled results and note any discrepancies.
 
7. Publish 100% of ALL voting records beginning the moment the polls close, but certainly the moment they become available.. This includes all scanned results, all randomly samples results of the original paper copies, all exit polls, by each and every State, county/city, district, poll location, and down to each and every voting booth.
 
8. The names of each and every voting monitor, their affiliations, credentials, backgrounds, etc., shall also be published online.
 
9. Personal identities may be protected, but will be available for legal action by any persons or entities through the courts; all defense costs to be paid for by the state.
 
10. Appeals will be subject to review at the federal and Supreme Court level.
 
11. Each voting district shall be required to post the results of their own audit, on their own websites, linked next to the results as reported on the national results board, as direct evidence to all voters that the national tally matches that from each of the individual districts.
 
In other words, ACCOUNTABILITY, people, at ALL levels throughout the ENTIRE voting process, with both controls and audits. This is standard Auditing 101, people. College students majoring in accounting learn these basic principles (and many more) each and every day. Done right, they CANNOT be “hacked” by anyone without such hacks being detected.and subject to subsequent redress.
 
Seriously, people, this is NOT very complicated. To test this, I created a mock database of 200 million voters on my laptop, casting votes for 5 presidential candidates, one member of the Congressional House, and two members of the Congressional Senate.
 
Time to tally ALL votes for ALL candidates by ALL voters: 22.25 minutes.
 
Done right, even a laptop can handle inputs from ALL 200+ million voters on election day.

Open Letter from We the People

We the People of the United States of America have serious grievances against Barack Hussein Obama.  These grievances range from his own self-admitted ineligibility for the office of the Presidency to the many high crimes (felonies) and misdemeanors he and those he has appointed have committed while in office, most of which are grossly un-Constitutional, and several of which have directly or indirectly resulted in the unlawful deaths of Americans both at home and abroad.

This letter requires action from all of us.  A fellow patriot put this letter together for all of us to distribute on our blogs,Facebook walls, e-mail and mailing lists, and to send to your elected representatives at both the State and Federal levels via e-mail, fax or snail mail. Tweet a link to this page, along with terms such as “Obama impeachment.”  Forward it to your local and national news agencies, demanding they cover the story.

Together we can make a difference. So lets get it done!

To Whom It May Concern:

We The People find ourselves in a very uncomfortable place and we look to you as the representatives of our country for the answers we seek. Please know that there are many millions who share these feelings, and if the elections had been conducted in a fair and non-fraudulent manner, the results would have reflected our concerns.  Below, you will find a collaborative list of questions, and we would greatly appreciate receiving your answers in a timely manner. We will make our decisions accordingly, as this is still the land of the free, and our country’s future is at stake.

Why with wide-spread voter fraud, can this election not be contested? Why are we bound to an agreement reached in 1981?

On Benghazi:

Why were security teams actually removed in the months and weeks leading up to 9/11 when the violence was escalating and the people on the ground said more was needed?
We can prove Obama had knowledge of the attack, as well as the resources to send for protection but he still denied vital help. These are impeachable offenses. What is your stance on this? Do you agree that this President needs to be impeached? What are you doing about Benghazi?

Regarding Obamacare:

There is so much that is being enacted behind closed doors. We request that there be no more secrets. We should be able to know the stipulations in their entirety and We the People should be able to vote on it. We need the specifics. The doctors have no idea how they will be paid/reimbursed after January. The hospitals are flying blind, unsure of what they will be fined for. It is hard to run a business, as many know, without a business plan. Do the States have the right to reject Obamacare? We need specifics about ALL taxes we will incur, including 1% on every banking transaction on all bank accounts. We also require specifics on the Over 70 Group.

Concerning our Military:

How do you feel about Obama firing 20,000 Marines so he can give $6 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars to Muslims for ‘green’ energy’? What accountability does this President have? How about the debt ceiling? Raising it will give this Administration more funds to waste on our demise. Is the House going to hold true to their promises?

The FCC is directed by five commissioners who are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. This is a serious problem, as you know. Do states have the right to secede, as Texas is in process of attempting to do now?
Finally, we have condensed the list of grievances down to those we feel are most important and would like answers to the following, as to what is being DONE to remedy these atrocities in our country.

Dept. Of Interior, Green Energy Fraud…. what is being done here?

Fast and Furious- what is being done about this? Gun running?

Seal Team 6 shot down
College transcripts of Barack Hussein Obama
Record number of Generals, Admirals retired.
Give-away of Alaska lands to Russia
Retirement of 20,0000 marines
Give away of drilling rights in the Gulf
Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the White House
Hamas training bases on the border
Surrender of sovereign lands in Arizona to drug Cartels
Drone attacks on American Citizens, arrests of our troops on the battlefield for taking out targets of opportunity to appease host Muslim nations…. and the lies about Libya during the NATO operation…

Why do we have a Taliban lawyer in the Justice Dept?
NDAA, and the UN making decisions AGAINST the U.S. Constitution, most notably with the NDAA’s “indefinite detention of U.S. citizens” in violation of Constitutionally-mandated due process of law and the U.N.’s Gun Ban Treaty, a direct violation of our 2nd Amendment rights.
The use of the Foreign Desk to buy our own debt to generate fees for Goldman Sachs.

What is the status of this process?  Why has Congress refused to bring charges against the criminal currently sitting in the White House?  Why would we let anyone like Obama get away with committing such a large number of high crimes and misdemeanors, most notably of which was his lying about his country of birth, a fact which he later admitted, in public“First of all, it’s true, I’m not an American.  I was not born in Hawaii.  I was not born in the United States of America.  I come from Kenya.” – President Barack Hussein Obama, shortly after he was elected in 2008 (short link:  http://youtu.be/edyJ4oS8kz0).  This self-admitted fact alone is a gross violation of the Constitutionally-mandated requirement to be President of the United States of America and grounds for immediate removal from office:  “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President…”Article II, Section 1.

I realize this is a lengthy list. However, it does not even cover an eighth of our concerns, and was difficult to condense. This will be widely publicized, along with your response.

The American people need and deserve answers, and we would appreciate you taking the time to give them to us. We ask, however, that your responses be clear and concise, and that you spare us from a long drawn out diatribe that has little to do with the questions being asked, as we will take that as you do not think we are important enough to take seriously, and act accordingly with our support!

By the way, Speaker Boehner, having your flunkies hang up on me mid-sentence when I called your office to ask you or your staff just one of these questions is totally unacceptable.

Thank you for your time and attention to this urgent matter! We believe that you take these issues as seriously as we do, and for that, you have our deep respect and heartfelt gratitude.

Respectfully,
The American People
