My father was a
U.S. History teacher, so I grew up with a healthy respect for
America and her history. I believe, as every American should, that
voting in every election is the greatest privilege we have as
American citizens, and the single most important act that we will
ever do for ourselves and our posterity.
As a Reagan Conservative and a
Tea Party Member, I am proud to have attended the first 9-12 march
on DC, the first National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN, the
Glenn Beck American Revival training in Phoenix, and the Glenn Beck
Restoring Honor event on the National Mall.
Linda: Most of you have
heard about ACORN, SEIU, party hacks and others involved in election
fraud-- stealing our votes- disenfranchising people-- illegally
altering the results-- robbing us of fair elections. A case study by
Sharron Angle of the Nevada 2010 election highlighted that. The
number of fraud cases reported by her group- some 5000, were said to
be inadequate to warrant action. Numerous California incidents were
reported. Nothing much happened, partially because we weren't
organized enough to identify, document, communicate and follow up to
help make things happen.
Not long after that. Linda
Paine, a founder of the Santa Clarita Valley Patriots, founded
Election Integrity Project, to deal with those sort of issues. Since
that time, EIP has grown to encompass efforts in quite a few
counties, working on purging voter rolls, working with election
officials to improve procedure and monitoring elections, The June 5
Primary will be the first election to have an EIP effort in force.
Local Poll Observer training
sessions were announced and held May 19 and May 26. I was fortunate
enough to attend the Ventura session this weekend (READ about it
here). Although I previously completed a training session held by an
election law attorney, I would say that this one was actually better.
