Oct 1, 2015: A Plea From this Group -- us, at -- who forced the Iowa GOP to change the Iowa Caucus winner in 2012 from Romney to Santorum 2 weeks after that Caucus, a FIRST in US Political History
An Urgent Plea Primarily to
Donald Trump & Rand Paul,
and also Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee et al --

The Iowa GOP has a long history of cheating for ESTABLISHMENT-APPROVED candidates in the now-defunct Iowa Straw Poll AND the very important Iowa Caucus. It is proven beyond dispute that they cheated Patrick Buchanan in 1996 -- and Rick Santorum in 2012 (and probably Ron Paul and Michele Bachman in 2012)

Watching the TV News Networks, it is clear that as of late September 2015, Donald Trump is slated for "political annihilation" by phony "polls" and a rigged caucus in Iowa, followed by "defeat" by computerized votefraud in New Hampshire and the rest of the computerized Presidential Primary states, which is all of them.

MR. TRUMP and SENATOR PAUL, and other non-establishment-approved candidates -- We can tell you for absolute SURE how to stop the votefraud in the Iowa Caucus (perpetrated by the Iowa GOP headquarters, NOT by the people of Iowa) and how to perhaps stop the computerized rigging of the rest of the Presidential primaries. Computerized-rigging in Super Tuesday states was used to make Dole in 1996, McCain in 2008, and Romney in 2012 the "winners" of the GOP nomination for those years. If not stopped, this rigging will be done again in 2016 to "elect" an Establishment-approved candidate, such as Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, or Gov. John Kasich. Please scroll down just  a bit to the "Page of Analysis and Three Videos" section, and Please read and watch those. Also -- read "A House without Doors" here about the proven votefraud against Pat Buchanan in 1996 in the Iowa Caucus, published by Chronicles Magazine, and unrefuted by the Iowa GOP Headquarters for now 19 years. On January 19, 2012, the Des Moines Register finally wrote that many believed Pat Buchanan had won the 1996 GOP Iowa Presidential Caucus, not Bob Dole. Below, the 2012 story:

Below find the Facts on WatchTheVote2012, the Saga of Edward True, and why the Iowa State GOP had to change their published winner from Romney to Santorum two weeks after the Presidential Caucus of January 3, 2012

       Earth Shaking Affidavit

  Caught Screenshots
of the Error (?)


A Week After Edward True and WatchTheVote2012 Teamed up to publish his story and affidavit on January 4th -- Newsweek Senior Columnist John Avlon picked up the story in his column at -- and within hours was on Erin Burnett's CNN show, "Outfront", with Edward True as Guest also. All this publicity resulted in the announced winner of Iowa Caucus 2012 changing from Romney to Santorum -- Showing the POWER of one lone citizen Eye-witness in a transparent Caucus (like Iowa's). Such an "eye-witness is rendered impossible in South Carolina, Florida, and beyond - due to secret computer "counts."

CNN Reported at 6:30 AM, Jan 19, 2012:
 Santorum now wins Iowa Caucus by 34 votes
(kindof ) - as Iowa GOP Election Officials Pretended to be confused -- saying that the real count "may never be known."

All verifiable reports so far indicate that Ron Paul is winning in landslides in many places in Maine and Nevada, or coming in a close second in other locations. Romney was projected "winner" in Nevada as the Caucus opened, with no votes cast. This was a phony projection, not knowable at that time. Now Nevada GOP HQ says they have "mystery ballot boxes". Riiiiigggggggghhht! The Nevada GOP has not yet announced final results with days transpiring since the end of the Nevada Caucus. The Iowa State GOP Chairman resigned a few days after the "official" Iowa Caucus results were announced; the Nevada State GOP Chairman resigned within 24 hours of the end of the Nevada Caucus. Maine GOP HQ says they will not release results until Feb 11, 2012. While we insist on a fair count for everyone, it is obvious the main target of dirty tricks is Presidential Candidate Ron Paul.

These Three Presidential Candidates Are in Grave Danger of being cheated on Iowa Caucus Night 2012 by The Iowa State GOP and the 5 Big TV Networks. - It happened to Pat Buchanan in 1996 -- Don't Let it Happen AGAIN!

Be a BraveHeart Grassroots Citizen:

Our Accompanying FaceBook Page, erected by intrepid freedom fighter Gavin Greer of California, can be found here:
You can also sign into Facebook, and then search for: Watchthevote2012
Use this Facebook Page to: 1) volunteer to be a "computer uploader" to help upload the results for one of the 99 Iowa Counties on Jan 3, 2012, Iowa Caucus night; -- 2: Volunteer to attend one of the 1784 local caucus gatherings on at 7 PM on Jan 3, 2012, eye-witness the results, and then post the results you see to the our facebook page, and also text, email, or call the results to the "WatchTheVote2012" person assigned to your county, as found on this website. An "eye-witness" can either be an Iowan voting in the local caucus, or someone from a surrounding state who drives to a local caucus gathering; If you're an out-of-stater -- contact the "WatchtheVote2012" leader assigned to your county to find out where eye-witnesses are still needed.
Here's a List of "WatchTheVote2012" leaders by County:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

You can make a big difference by volunteering for 1 of 2 tasks on
Iowa Caucus Night, January 3, 2012:

1. If you are an Iowan, or if you are within driving distance from Iowa on Caucus night, you can perform an invaluable service by going to one of the the 1784 local caucus gatherings and WITNESSING the actual count, which will be done by a show of hands or on paper ballots, counted in the open right after the voting takes place. (Videotaping the event is the best, if possible.) -- You can then take a video, or a cell phone picture of the tally sheet, if possible, or just record the results by handwriting on a piece of paper. Then you either email, text, call, or post on our Facebook Page -- the results you witnessed at your local caucus, with both the county you are in, and address of your local  caucus gathering included. For Iowans who are attending a local caucus anyway, this just amounts to a few minutes of effort on top of showing up and participating.  (You would then copy your results by email to, as soon as you are able to, even if it's later that night.) AND THEN --

2. We need volunteers for 99 "Computer Uploaders" -- who can be sitting anywhere in the USA at their computer. One of these individuals will be assigned to each of Iowa's 99 counties. That means each of these 99 "computer uploaders" will have a "vote monitor" (those who volunteer for task #1 above) from each of the 18 local gatherings (on average per county) in that county. The "computer uploader" will then upload the results to his section of this website for the local caucuses in his assigned county, and the results will go up on the internet LIVE in real time.

 SO, NOW, PLEASE, IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN, go to our Facebook page (above) and volunteer for task #1 if you are in or near Iowa, -- and task #2 if you are not (although technically Iowans could do task #2 also, but Iowans should be physically at a caucus that night if possible). - We'll get back to you with assignments.

* * * * * *

By the way, these resources / skills are also needed:

1. We need a list of the 1784 local caucus gatherings by county, and with address. These may have to be accumulated from the county newspaper in each county, unless a master list can be found. Surely a master list exists.

2. We will have to have the programming done so that on this website, as the totals for each local gathering are uploaded, that the results will automatically calculate for each county, and for the Iowa Caucus as a whole. Results will be kept on this website for: Bachmann, Gingrich, Huntsman, Paul, Perry, Romney, Santorum -- and "other." There will shortly be a tally sheet on this website that you will be able to download if you are local "vote monitor", or you can just make up your own.

3. The local logistics are: Iowa Caucus takes place on January 3, 2012 at 7 PM CST, in 1784 local caucus gatherings across Iowa's 99 counties. There has historically been an average of 50 to 60 people at each gathering. The local folks from that neighborhood or town gather, vote for their choice for President (amongst other action items), and the results are tabulated by a show of hands, or by writing each person's Presidential choice on a blank piece of paper. In either case, the counting of the ballots or hands can be witnessed by every person present. The Iowa Caucus is a perfectly fair and honest system, PROVIDED we are watching to make sure no one at the STATE or NATIONAL level ALTERS the results after the local people call them in.

The local people do things honestly and above board -- it's at the STATE level that the Iowa Caucus will be rigged -- unless one or more Citizen Groups are DOUBLE-CHECKING the results by adding up the results from each local caucus INDEPENDENTLY form the Iowa GOP State Leadership and National Election Pool (the creature of the 5 Big TV networks). 

* * * * *

The Local Grassroots Iowans Will Do Everything "Above Board" and Honest at the 1784 LOCAL caucus gatherings on January 3, 2012 -- but Once The Local Folks Call in Their Results, The Iowa State GOP Riggs the Iowa Caucus -- IF no one is watching!

This is an emergency, grassroots "Internet Social Networking Effort" to monitor the vote on the night of the Iowa Caucus 2012 -- to be held on January 3, 2012.
The Iowa STATE Republican Party has a long history of rigging both the Iowa Straw Poll and the Iowa Caucus against populist, constitutionalist candidates like Ron Paul. The RHINO GOP establishment also hates Presidential candidates like Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum, even though these two are acceptable to the RHINOS in foreign policy matters. But, since Bachmann and Santorum ACTUALLY believe in their domestic and social issue agendas for the USA, they are also in danger of being cheated out of votes received at the state level. These three Presidential candidates are in grave danger of being election-rigged at the Iowa Caucus on the night of January 3, 2012. This is not an accusation against the Gingrich or Romney or Perry campaigns -- but against the Iowa STATE GOP, and whichever groups they are in alliance with to "count" the votes at the state level.
Truth in advertising: this website and our related Facebook page (near top of page) was started in mid December 2011 by Ron Paul supporters. BUT supporters of ALL the GOP Presidential campaigns are welcome to use this page and the Facebook presence to help monitor the vote on Iowa Caucus Night 2012!
We just want to know who the REAL WINNER is on the night of Iowa Caucus 2012, -- and what the REAL COUNT is, -- and not have Ron Paul, or Michele Bachmann, or Rick Santorum cheated out of votes they actually receive -- as happened to Pat Buchanan and his supporters in the 1996 Iowa Caucus (held on Feb 12 of that year) when the Iowa State GOP was rigging the Iowa Caucus that year for RHINO Bob Dole.

Pat Buchanan, circa 1996,  cheated out of 13% of his vote in Dubuque County alone that year.

The establishment GOP wanted Sen. Bob Dole in 1996, and local activists were watching in Dubuque County, and proved that 13% of Buchanan's vote in Dubuque County was stolen that night by the brazen collusion of the Iowa State GOP and Voter News Service (owned by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and AP wire at that time; FOX came into existence and became a part owner by 1998; in 2003 Voter News Service changed their name to National Election Pool, to protect the guilty; see at the link immediately below and learn what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, AP wire, Rush, Hannity, Beck, O'Reilly, etc. -- have been hiding from you: 

The sinister role of Voter News Service (VNS), now National Election Pool (NEP), is revealed in the book "Votescam: The Stealing of America", by James and Kenneth Collier, and in the article, "A House without Doors." -- For the full story on how Buchanan was cheated in 1996, read the short article "A House Without Doors" -- found here:


Activists supporting the Buchanan campaign were only monitoring the 41 local caucus gatherings in Dubuque County in 1996, and NO ONE was monitoring the other 1860 local caucus gatherings in the other 98 counties. So the Iowa State GOP, in conjunction with the sinister "Voter News Service", simply altered the vote AT THE STATE LEVEL, once the local folks had called in their results and headed home, in order to make the lackluster Sen. Bob Dole "the winner" in 1996. Both the Iowa State GOP leadership and New York based Voter News Service stonewalled citizen inquiries for months after the Iowa Caucus in 1996 - and have stonewalled to this day, rather than correct the vote totals.
Ron Paul supporters, and Michelle Bachmann supporters, and Rick Santorum supporters had better monitor all 1784 local caucus gatherings in all 99 counties this time, in 2012! (Supporters of the Gingrich, Romney, Perry, and the Huntsman campaign are also most welcome to help monitor the vote count, but these are the establishment GOP candidates, and one of them will probably be the beneficiary of caucus-rigging by the Iowa State GOP leadership -- IF the Iowa GOP Leadership can get away with it again.
THIS PAGE, and our accompanying Facebook presence (listed near the top of this page), -- is for those who want to prevent election rigging in the Iowa Caucus this year, in 2012!
Now, time is of the essence, -- go back near the top of this page and read the TWO ways in which you can volunteer to help, and then pick one, and contact us through our Facebook page.
FOR more in depth knowledge of the crookedness, and other realities about the Iowa Caucus over the years, go here:

Please note: The Bachmann and Santorum campaigns have probably never had any of these thoughts about potential Caucus rigging by the Iowa State GOP HQ cross their minds.
But, in articles at the webpage linked immediately above -- you will find that in 2007-2008 SOME of the TOP paid staff of the Ron Paul Campaign in Iowa and NH were actively obstructing our "Watch The Vote 2008 - Vote in Sunshine" efforts to monitor the vote in Iowa and New Hampshire, -- and trying to discourage many of YOU, you who are the grassroots Ron Paul Supporters, from cooperating with a simple, independent "vote monitoring" effort like this one. We say: DO WHATEVER THE CAMPAIGN WANTS, but ALSO take an extra five minutes after your local Caucus results are announced, and contact our Watch The Vote 2012 system as explained on the Facebook page in the "Job description" link for Watch the Vote County Leaders and "boots on the ground" Vote Monitors.
We know we at WatchTheVote2012 are being stonewalled by the RP paid staff in Iowa, we just hope the paid staff is NOTdiscouraging Iowans from contacting Watch the Vote 2012 with the vote results in their Caucus at the end of the local caucuses of Jan 3, 2012 (a five to ten minute expenditure of time).

THIS IS NOT A CHARGE AGAINST RON PAUL OR SENATOR RAND PAUL, both of whom have called for sensible vote monitoring when the issue has been raised in their presence.

DON'T LET ANYONE DISCOURAGE YOU FROM MAKING A SIMPLE CALL, TEXT, OR Facebook POSTING of the actual vote count you eye-witness at your local caucus gathering.
As it stands, YOUR monitoring of one of the local 1784 Iowa Caucus gatherings, in cooperation with hundreds of our fellow grassroots citizens -- is all that's standing between AN HONEST REPORTING OF THE Iowa Caucus 2012 COUNT -- and a rigged result engineered by the Iowa State GOP leadership in conjunction with National Election Pool.
We will shortly issue OPEN LETTERS on the internet -- and REGISTERED LETTERS through normal mail -- to the IOWA GOP LEADERSHIP, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, AP wire, and News Election Pool -- that they are being watched, and that they will be CAUGHT this time if they try and alter the Iowa Caucus vote at the state level -- like they did in 1996. (Copies of these Open Letters will be posted on this website.)
BUT THE ONLY WAY OUR WARNING can be effective, is if 99 grassroots citizens volunteer to cover one county each at their computers on election night, so that a "vote monitor" from each of the 18 or so gatherings in that county can contact the "computer uploader" with the actual vote count they eye-witness. The "uploader", who can be at their computer anywhere in the USA, will then upload the true results to the internet on this website for all the world to see. Thus, the potential election rigging crooks will be CHECKMATED! And if Ron Paul really wins, he will be announced as the winner. And if Michele Bachmann wins, she will be announced the winner, and if Newt Gingrich wins, then he will be announced the winner, and so on.
OUR GOAL is to report to the nation the REAL WINNER, whoever it is. We strongly fear, based on history, that this is NOT the goal of the Iowa GOP, or National Election Pool (NEP), owned by the 5 Big TV Networks and AP.
Again, time is of the essence, -- go back near the top of this page and read the TWO ways in which you can volunteer to help, and then pick one, and contact us through our Facebook page.
With the internet and Social Networking sites -- we can make it happen!
Calling all BraveHearts and Warrior-Poets who want to save our beloved Nation!
