RFK Jr and Pap: "Is Your Vote Safe?"

RFK Jr and Pap: "Is Your Vote Safe?"
By Ring of Fire

Bobby: "There are about 30 scams the republicans are deliberately
using, particularly in the swing states to get democratic voters off
the rolls. These scams originate in the so-called Help America Vote
Act which was passed after the Florida debacle in the year 2000. It
was originally suggested by democrats and republicans but it was
passed by a republican congress with a republican senate and a
republican president. And instead of reforming what happened in
Florida it basically institutionalized all the problems that happened
in Florida. And institutionalized a series of impediments that make
it very difficult for democrats to register, for democrats to vote
and then for democrats to have their vote counted.

"One of these requirements under HAVA is called "the perfect match"
and what that does is little known but it is devastating. A quarter
of the voters in Colorado have just been removed from the rolls
because of this--just this one scam. And what it does is they use a
computer system to compare your registration application to all other
government records of you in the state. So they'll look at your
social security records, your motor vehicle records and any time
you've had any interaction with the government and if there is any
information on your voter registration that is different than the
information on another government record that they find they remove
you from the voting rolls.

"For example, if I registered as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and yet my
motor vehicle license said Robert Frances Kennedy Jr. I'd be removed
from the rolls. If your initial is different, if you leave an initial
out, if you leave a "Jr." out, if you leave a hyphen out in your
name. And what they've done is a study in New York that said 80% of
the errors are errors that were done by state clerks who are taking
down this information. And particularly immigrant communities that
people tend to vote democratic, people have names…spell Muhammad with
an "o" instead of a "u" (crosstalk)

Pap: "Are the democrats suing to stop this?"

Bobby: "No, the democrats are doing nothing to stop it. In New
Jersey, which is a swing state, 300,000 voters in New Jersey were
just sent letters saying that they are now ineligible to vote. New
jersey is nice enough to actually notify them--most states will not
even notify them. And New Jersey intends to send out 870,000 letters
so that is three quarters of a million people off the voting rolls in
a state that could decide this vote by 50,000 votes. And these are
democrats that are being pushed off the rolls.

Bobby: "Let me tell you about one other of these scams people should
know about. If you're a newly registered voter--and of course the
democrats have done these gigantic registration drives--12 million
people on registration--if you're a new voter you MUST include your
license or some other state I.D. when you come to vote. What that
means is that if you're a college kid (and college kids now--they're
sending in absentee ballots--they're not going to the voting place,
they do everything online or they do everything remotely--they don't
dream of going to the precinct house voting on election day and
waiting in a long line) so if they send in the absentee ballot and
they don't include a color copy of their license their vote is going
to be thrown into a trash can. And none of these people know this
because you have had to read the law in order to know it. So there is
no notification for when you fill out your registration form, so all
of those 12 million people that the democrats have registered: those
ballots are going to be just thrown out.

Pap: "And if democrats won't talk about this how the hell's anybody
gonna know about it? I'm involved with this kind of thing every day--
I didn't know that until you just told me. The media is not talking
about it. How in the hell is somebody gonna find this out? It's just

Bobby: "Hopefully--Obama is getting 66 million dollars a month--
hopefully somebody in the democratic organization is going to pay
some attention to this before election day.
