If you missed the previous posts, please check out the "MISSION STATEMENT" below.
I know lots of us are upset about how AZ is going, but this is meant to be the ONE THREAD on the site that's entirely focused on finding peaceful, legal solutions to the political situation we find ourselves in. Obviously, you can write whatever you want, but we could definitely use your ideas and support.
One thing we could discuss this week is figuring out what we can do to help expose the steal we all know they are going to try and pull off in Georgia. We know their techniques, we've seen them over and over again. It seems like we have enough of a head start to lay some traps. What can we do to pull a massive "James O'Keefe" on these people???
Anyway, here's a recap of what we've come up with so far:
========RECAP OF IDEAS========
#1 - DEMAND FLORIDA-STYLE ELECTION REFORM EVERYWHERE WE CAN
We must demand election reform laws everywhere we can. Unfortunately, this is probably a non-starter in many swing states, but if all the red states can follow Florida's example, we will shore up lots of votes and probably gain many House seats in the process, if cities like Houston, Cleveland and New Orleans can't manufacture votes like they've been doing:
It also helps draw the contrast between crooked elections like AZ, and fair elections like Florida, and will help people realize what's really going on.
Last weeks u/snoman made the point that we should be demonstrating at state capitols, burning up the state GOP phone lines, and threatening to withhold donations and votes until this gets done in all "friendly" states:
It's a no-brainer...
Also, u/MasklessMarvel points out that Virginia might have better election laws to copy than Florida:
#2 - PURGING VOTER ROLLS
We need to support the incredibly effective "STREETFIGHTER PROJECT", which many are crediting with saving Ron Johnson's Senate seat in Wisconsin earlier this month:
This "fractal team" is expanding to all 50 states in 2024, so it may be worthwhile to contact them and see if we can volunteer or donate funds.
True the Vote has a similar project you can volunteer with:
and you can also just volunteer at your local county GOP office for voter roll cleanup:
Finally, another great idea that would definitely be worth sharing with the organizations above:
"In 2022, innovative Republican candidates, a very few, mailed postcards to every voter in their congressional district. The cards that came back = NON-DELIVERABLE ADDRESS. They challenged ballots sent to these addresses, and perhaps they sent volunteers to find some of those accumulated ballots."
#3 - BALLOT HARVESTING
Last week we had discussed seeing if Scott Presler could be convinced to shift his efforts to ballot harvesting... He was way ahead of us!:
Scott is always looking for volunteers to make calls and knock on doors, but we might also encourage him to focus on replicating himself: training dozens or even hundreds of Scott Preslers to do similar work all over the country.
Also, please let him know he should start accepting donations from the public to help build his organization. Every dollar we could send Scott would be 100X as effective as one sent to the GOP. If he had a PayPal or GiveSendGo, I would happily send a bunch of cash this second, and I know many of you feel the same way.
#4 - WIN THE "CURING" BATTLE
We must also focus on "curing". The Dems are apparently beating us 9/1 on curing ballots, and are likely stealing our votes:
If we could get it in to everyone's head that their job (unfortunately) isn't done after voting - that they must now verify their ballot was cast as expected - that could go a long way to shoring up our votes.
#5 - DO WHAT JAMES O'KEEFE DOES, BUT FOR ELECTION FRAUD
We should all encourage James O'Keefe (or someone like him) to set up a special unit dedicated to finding and exposing election fraud, with dozens or even hundreds of dedicated investigators:
I know everyone here would happily kick in a few bucks for this.
#6 - GET DROPBOXES IN MAGA FRIENDLY PLACES
u/Emodius and a few other made the point that most dropboxes are in "enemy territory" because we've been against them for so long. Obviously each state has their own laws on these things, but it's likely worth pursuing how we can expand dropboxes to places that are "MAGA friendly":
#7 - GO LAWFARE ON ELECTION FRAUD
Getting someone like Tom Fitton or Harmeet Dillon (with some crowdfunding help from us) to use the clear pattern of voter disenfranchisement that's been established in '18, '20, and '22 to sue BEFORE the '24 election begins, to try and change some of these corrupt election laws back to the '16 standard. One of the main problems is that we've been suing after the voting (and the cheating) starts. Courts have historically been VERY reluctant to interfere in the operation of a state's election:
#8 - PROMOTE EARLY VOTING
u/diana and many others pointed out last week that we need to break the taboo on early voting that our side has developed. Election day is now a "choke-point" that people like AZ will exploit - they know if they have election machine malfunctions, we will be disproportionately affected.
#9 - BECOME AN ELECTION VOLUNTEER
We need every Pede possible to be our eyes and ears behind the scenes. I know a few people here have already done so, but if even 5 or 10% of us volunteer and get behind the scenes access (especially in blue states or counties), we will have an unprecedented opportunity to expose the fraud and abuses destroying our electoral system.
============MORE DETAILS AND CREDITS============
Please see this thread for more details and credits on the ideas above:
I think we now all agree that 2024 will turn out badly for us and President Trump unless we drastically change strategies. A lot of people are dooming right now (totally understandable) because we were counting on our "Republican leaders" to take election fraud seriously this time after the 2020 shit-show, and also because things have obviously gotten so bad over the last 2 years. However, it's clear that our electoral system has now become a "post-reality" game of "ballots" and not "votes":
Instead of just making memes and spreading facts and knowledge, if we could have one centralized thread a week where we focus exclusively on positive yet realistic actions we can take to both combat the fraud we know is coming in '24, and to also emulate (to the extent allowed by law) the Dems' ballot gathering operations. If we work as hard on this as we did memes and shitposts in 2016, we can overwhelm them again and have much, much better results.
That's it! We've got 24 months till '24 - that's plenty of time to do some fucking damage!!!
