Open Letter To Donald Trump
(Below is the original “Open Letter” at the beginning of the 2016 Presidential campaign – still worth the read. But in the waning weeks of the campaign one must then read “Election Night Gatekeepers” tab on the menu.)
Dear Mr. Trump,
We are the organization Watch the Vote. Together with first time Caucus goer Edward True, we proved that the Iowa GOP HQ ANNOUNCED THE WRONG WINNER on the night of the Iowa Caucus held on January 3rd, 2012. When the facts emerged over the days that followed, the Iowa GOP HQ change the winner from Romney to Santorum. (To our knowledge, this was a first in American history. See CNN videos here.) This error by the Iowa State GOP HQ in 2012 resulted in Mitt Romney taking the bows before the worldwide cameras as the “winner”, with all the momentum that entailed for Romney in media coverage, polling, and fundraising.
The LAST THING the Old Guard wants to see on February 1, 2016 is Donald J. Trump ascending the winner’s stage before the worldwide cameras to take the bows as the Winner of the Iowa Caucus 2016. On the Menu above, we detail the EXACT INSTRUCTIONS for how to ensure a FAIR COUNT in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Back to the Iowa Caucus in 2012: After announcing the WRONG WINNER on Iowa Caucus nite, the Iowa GOP changed the winner kicking and screaming, after unsuccessfully trying to discredit the key witness, caucus attendee Edward True. The first statement out of the Iowa state GOP HQ after True came forth with the discrepancy he found, a Republican Party of Iowa spokesman stated that since True is neither a precinct captain nor county chairperson, he has “no business” talking about election results”. (!!!) This was carried in newspaper articles at the time, and is still on Wikipedia with references under “United States Presidential Election in Iowa 2012.”
We also caught and proved the 13% reduction in Patrick J. Buchanan’s real vote in the 1996 Iowa Caucus in Dubuque County. The Dubuque County Chairman posted the correct results, but despite his efforts at the time, and ours, the falsification of Buchanan’s numbers have never been corrected to this day. On January 19, 2012, the Des Moines Register carried that players in the 1996 Iowa Presidential Caucus thought that Buchanan had really won, not Dole, in the GOP contest.
We have also compiled ongoing tactics by the Iowa GOP in every contested straw poll and Caucus since 1988. On several occasions, when any “insurgent” candidate was threatening to defeat what seemed to be the establishment favored Presidential candidates, results were objectively falsified at the state level — after the local people had done an honest job at each neighborhood caucus.
The Iowa Caucus is the most open and fair contest in the Presidential season. If citizens watch the vote at each neighborhood caucus, and make sure the local numbers are accurately tabulated at the STATE level.
You, Mr. Trump, are being subjected to the exact same treatment as Pat Buchanan in 1996 and Ron Paul in 2008 & 2012. The Big TV News Networks are all pushing one theme: When will Trump fall? If Jeb, Christie or Rubio were drawing crowds of tens of thousands, and doubling and tripling everyone else in the polls, the Big TV Networks would be saying “it’s over”, and “we have our nominee”.
The general drift of all 5 TV Networks in their “news” segments is to prepare the public for your “fall”, which the Old Guard plans to make happen with their tried and true election votescam tactics. Watch The Vote does not endorse, but we can clearly see whom the Old Guard is targeting for electoral obliteration. In 2012, we said “we want a fair count for Ron Paul, and everybody else”. In 2016 we might say that “we want a fair count for Donald Trump, and everybody else.”
Please let us emphasize one thing: here we are NOT talking about “VOTER” fraud, which would be voters running around voting at more than once location. This is a problem and should be dealt with, — but it is a very minor part of the problem. The problem we are talking about in the 2016 Presidential contest is both alleged and proven ELECTION FRAUD, and more specifically ELECTION VENDOR FRAUD. It is the ELECTION VENDORS, hired by each county, that have the “motive, means, and opportunity” to alter elections via their software. (These dangers are exposed in the excellent HBO documentary, Hacking Democracy.) Those who control the software can possibly switch tens of thousands of votes in the blink of an eye, silently, invisibly — with no checks and balances on election day. In these states, such as in NH where 80% of the vote is “counted” on these secret software programs, no candidate, no citizen, no local press person is allowed to see or inspect any real ballots on election day.
The three main election Vendors, — the three main suspects — are ES & S (Election Systems and Software), Hart Civic, and Dominion (which recently bought Diebold and Sequoia). According to reliable experts, such as Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org and veteran journalist, Ronnie Dugger, these three companies “count” approximately 96% of the US vote on any given November election night, and in all primary contests during the primary season. This unconscionable, un-American, illegal, and unconstitutional “election” system has been in place to steal Presidential elections since at least as far back as 1988. In all but ten of our 3200+ local counties, the local election officials totally abdicate their responsibility to one of a handful of Election vendors, whom they hire to run the “election” process.
It’s that bad — so bad that most people can’t believe it at first glance. In New Hampshire, they break their own state law which forbids secret counts. (All computer counts are, by their very nature, secret counts.) South Carolina not only breaks its own state law against secret counts, but also has the effrontery to have NO PAPER BALLOTS AT ALL!!! In SC, your vote is a bleep of energy supposedly counted at some computer somewhere. There is no way to check the count, and no way to do a recount. (Is this how Mr. 0%-in-the-polls Lindsay Graham gets “elected” and “reelected” Senator in SC? Our conclusion is YES.)
- Mr. Trump, if you do not deal with the election votefraud problem now, you will surely “lose”.
- If you deal with the election votefraud issue in the Iowa Caucus, then you will be on the road to the White House.
- If after the Iowa Caucus you also deal with the much more serious election votefraud issues in NH, SC, and beyond, then you have an excellent chance to become President of the United States of America.
(Please note the graphic below was made ten years ago, and demonstrates the essence of the problem of trusting our elections to a handful of private mega-vendors. In recent years a company named Dominion has bought Diebold and Sequoia. This “musical chairs” of names, owners, and locations has been going on for 40 years, since the dawn of computerized elections. Many astute observers believe that the ownership basically remains with the same crowd, the dark side of certain Intelligence agencies and a handful of International Banks, despite all the surface window dressing. You can order the original print edition of Votescam: the Stealing of America by the late Collier Brothers, or a new ebook version updated by Victoria Collier.)
Near the beginning of this Presidential Campaign you said that you “whine, and whine, and whine until I win”. Now is the time to “whine” about past documented election fraud in the Iowa Caucus perpetrated by the Iowa GOP State HQ, and the illegal, unconstitutional and criminal computerized “vote-counting” system that has been imposed on the American people since 1988.
However, it is clearly NOT whining to ask in advance for a FAIR, TRANSPARENT & CONSTITUTIONAL vote count! In fact, if a candidate is going to ask for time and support from his fellow Americans, is it not his duty to demand for them a transparent, honest vote count?
Before computers were introduced into elections in the 1970’s, everyone knew that it was an essential part of every campaign to Watch the Vote count. Every worthwhile campaign handbook in history carries a prominent section on the necessity of making every effort to prevent vote fraud on election day.
In his classic 1964 book, “How to Win an Election”, Barry Goldwater’s Senate Campaign Manager, Stephen Shadegg, emphasized the necessity of ballot security. In Chapter 14, entitled, “Don’t Let Them Steal it From You”, Shadegg admonishes all future campaigns: “This being an imperfect world, populated by imperfect men, it would be naive to expect that man’s sinful greed which prompts him to steal, lie, cheat and wage war would be submerged or held in check when the contest is for a political prize . . . To insure an honest vote and an honest count, observers, supported by all contending factions, should police the activities in the polling place from the moment the doors open until the last ballot is counted.”
While citizens can still watch the vote in the Iowa Caucus process, and in the ten smallest counties in NH which means only 20% of the NH vote, the Votescam Syndicate has made it impossible to observe anything in South Carolina and the primaries beyond, where elections have been computerized. This must be reversed if America is to remain at all free.
This is not a complicated subject, nor does one have to understand all the ins and outs of this issue, or understand computers. All the American citizen has to know is that a powerful group of people have worked stealthily for decades to arrange things so that they can count our votes in secret. When someone wants to count your votes in secret, you know they are up to no good.
Anyone in the 49 states, and in the ten largest counties in New Hampshire, can confirm with a simple phone call to their county Board of Elections that citizens, candidates, and local press people will be arrested if they try to see and/or count any ballots on election day in November, or in any of the primary states in the spring/summer primaries.
The ballots are whisked away from the people at closing time and “counted” behind closed doors, and behind police guard, on computer programs which have been programmed by persons unknown, with the officials at your Board of Elections FORBIDDEN BY THE CONTRACTS THEY SIGNED WITH ONE OF A HANDFUL OF MEGA-VENDORS to examine the source code that is telling the election computers what to do on election night.
ALL Americans HAVE A RIGHT to a verifiable and transparent count in line with THREE standing Supreme Court decisions.
One of those US Supreme Court decisions, Westbury v. Sanders, 1964, stated that all other rights, even the most basic, are illusory if the right to vote is undermined.
The other two relevant US Supreme Court decisions, namely, US v Mosley (1915) and Reynolds v Sims (1964) say that our right to vote consists of two parts:
a) the right to cast a ballot;
b) the right to KNOW that our vote has been counted accurately.

Paraphrase from the movie, Braveheart: “Help Us All, Mr. Trump. For Heaven’s Sake, Help Yourself!
Our suggestion to you, Mr. Trump, is — after reading this website, watching the two CNN videos, and the other short videos, — consider TWEETING out to your millions of followers to go to www.OpenLetterToDonaldTrump.com so they can evaluate this information. We promise that you will be surprised at the explosion of support that will follow from Everyday Americans. The public will overwhelmingly support you, and thank you, for raising this “votescam” election fraud issue. The Big Media will have nothing to say, as they have depended on staying in the shadows on this issue, and are up to their necks in enabling computerized election fraud since the 1970s.
When the Votescam issue is exposed, GOP primary voters will suddenly realize how we got McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012 as the GOP nominees. And Obama again in November 2012. The answer in all three cases: easily-rigged computerized elections where tens of thousands (or millions) of votes can be switched silently in the blink of an eye.
Please alert the media that, due to the fact that the Iowa GOP State HQ announced THE WRONG WINNER on Iowa Caucus night 2012, you are directing your supporters to watch the vote at their local caucus on Feb. 1. And then direct your supporters in Iowa to plan on taking a cell phone picture of the Official Tally Sheet at their local Caucus gathering, and then emailing that picture to Watch The Vote at WatchTheVote2016@gmail.com where our volunteers will post the pictures on our public website, making it impossible for the Iowa State GOP, or anyone else, to falsify the Iowa Caucus Vote in 2016.
If you would rather erect your own website as part of your Presidential campaign to accept these cell phone pictures of the official tally sheets on Feb. 1, we will tell your designated tech people how to erect such a website quickly and, of course, at no charge. We don’t want your money, we want a fair and honest count for Donald Trump, and everybody else. (The same offer is extended to Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and every other Presidential candidate. ALL campaigns should be effectively watching the vote on the night of the Iowa Caucus 2016.)
Secondly, and just as important, begin preparing to sue the Secretary of State in NH, SC, and the subsequent primary states for conducting illegal, unconstitutional computerized elections. The lawsuit would demand open, transparent, constitutional vote counting in all future elections, primaries, and Caucuses.
In the ten largest counties in NH where secret computer counts are held, the NH Secretary of State is not only violating the three standing US Supreme Court decisions explained above, but is also violating New Hampshire state law which requires open, transparent vote counts, and forbids secret election counts. Computer election counts, by definition, are secret counts.
In South Carolina, the election process is even more of an insult to every thinking person, if that be possible. In SC, there are no paper ballots! Every “vote” is merely a bleep of energy! (Ha! Ha!) The Secretary of State of South Carolina is also violating both the three standing US Supreme Court decisions AND South Carolina state law. See the 2008 ten minute Youtube video “South Carolina, Super Tuesday, and Ron Paul” for a thorough explanation of this aggressive election law-breaking in South Carolina.

- Coming soon: a youtube video where the Ohio Secretary of State, John Husted, confirms that all 88 counties in Ohio, and his office, signs contracts with election vendors that NO ELECTION OFFICIAL is allowed to inspect or see the source code that instructs the computers what to do on election night. (!!!!) And he acknowledges that this is a problem. (Ya think?) Husted should be applauded for his honest answer to this question at a Tea Party gathering at “The Farm” event hall in Cincinnati, Ohio in October 2012. Note well: this deplorable and unjustifiable situation prevails in 100% of 49 states, and by now 80% of New Hampshire. ***
