Guess Who’s Setting Up The GOP’s New Vote Rigging System? Read more: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/08/29/gop-picks-karl-rove-to-run-new-voter-fraud-system/#ixzz2dMQKzs4t
The GOP is not out of the election manipulation business yet. Despite the uncovering of Karl Rove’s attempt to hack the election by the hacker collective Anonymous, the Washington Examiner has unveiled how the Republican Party is building a digital network designed to rival, and surpass, Romney’s vote challenger system Orca.
For those who do not remember, Orca was a centralized computer system which, on the surface, allowed for direct ties between the election headquarters and the poll challengers, using mobile apps. Orca was Romney’s attempt to out-do Obama’s election machine. As reported by Anonymous, Orca held a darker secret, and was set up to manipulate the election in a similar manner to what is theorized happened in 2004 with Ohio where a server went dead for 90 minutes in the middle of an election, and the tabulation miraculously flipped from John Kerry to George W. Bush.
This new system, being developed by former Facebook engineer Andy Barkett, the Republican National Committee’s chief technology officer, looks capable of allowing even more insidious poll and vote manipulation than ever before.
The plan involves intrusive data scrubbing through detailed observation, using set-top boxes such as those provided by your cable provider to analyze viewing habits on an individual household level. It also scrubs social media to selectively target voters for advertising. Combining the two, the GOP is plotting on becoming Big Brother, and they plan on having it ready for a dry run for the 2014 elections, securing candidates which have the approval of the party bosses while eliminating competition, such as Tea Party wildcards who all but destroyed Mitt Romney’s chances in 2012 though comments such as “legitimate rape.”
this speaks volumes about the character of the party that would be kings, what ever happened to go to the states plead your case, debate the issues and the better candidate wins, has that ever been the case or have our elections always been rigged some successfully others not, but truly absent is the political process as we are told it is. take another look above now do any of those ploys give signals of "yes that's the party for me" good old American secret values like republicans decision they did not need to change their values and we see here and every place that is not a winning plan.
they intend to manipulate, invade your home with Neilson like devices and target you remember this by G W Bush, "you can fool some of the people all of the time and those are the ones you want to concentrate on" . the right wing has been doing this since the 70's to you and anyone who looks at TV or listens to the radio.
a party with this much dissention within it's ranks can't stand for long, too many chefs cause unattended boil overs.

“Most people don’t talk about the fact that Martin Luther King was a Republican.”was that a disclaimer by saying most don't talk about it implies the proverbial covering of the ass, to explain why you had not heard that ditty, they would have wore that out he is to Blacks and to some Whites the the civil rights martyr of all time and as now they would have then destroyed his character and image.
That’s a quote from Ada Fisher, a Republican National Committeewoman from North Carolina, that was published without qualification or correction this week by ABC News.
Fisher is wrong on two fronts. First, many people talk about the “fact” that King was a Republican. It is asserted incessantly by conservatives on Twitter andelsewhere on the internet, especially in the lead up to today’s 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The claim is most prominently advanced by King’s niece, Republican activist Alveda King. Over the years, conservative groups havepurchased billboards making the claim.
Second, Martin Luther King Jr. was not a Republican. Or a Democrat.
King was not a partisan and never endorsed any political candidate. In a 1958 interview, King said “I don’t think the Republican party is a party full of the almighty God nor is the Democratic party. They both have weaknesses … And I’m not inextricably bound to either party.”
King did, however, weigh in on the Republican party during his lifetime. In Chapter 23 of his autobiography, King writes this about the 1964 Republican National Convention:
The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right. The “best man” at this ceremony was a senator whose voting record, philosophy, and program were anathema to all the hard-won achievements of the past decade.
Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal.
While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy.
In 2008, King’s son Martin Luther King III said “It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican.” Garrow claimed there is little doubt King voted for Kennedy in 1960 and Johnson in 1964.
