Big oil trying to trick Alaskans again

Posted: August 6, 2014 - 1:59pm

Yes on Ballot Measure 1. If big oil puts $10 million into advertising to trick you and buy your votes, historically they’ll succeed. If the vote is close, the usual voter fraud will kick in. They’ll tell you they’ll put a few more drops of oil in the pipeline and make a lot of jobs, but they are historically lying cockroaches. They can afford millions to fool you because they stand to lose billions that would otherwise benefit our state and people (where the jobs and benefits are definite). 

The amount of oil in the line will not change. Oil is in low demand, a worldwide glut, as well as other energy sources, have and will move in, including natural gas. Yes there will always be a demand for crude and its value will continue rising.

Alaskans should be supported by our oil like Norway, but we are not even close. It belongs to us and we are being ad-fooled again to sell ourselves short.

manufacturing consent

I find it difficult to believe Alaskans are dumb enough to go to the polls to support big oil and the looting of our state by a Governor and former employee of Conoco Philips/Exxon and two current employees of Conoco Philips.

What seems more to be the case is that the oil companies use the media to manufacture consent, that is, to make us all believe everyone else is dumb enough to buy the propaganda.

Everyone you might talk to can see right through the multimillion dollar bombardment by the oil companies to preserve their record profits while the state of Alaska hits record deficits, but all those media ads make you think 'well, someone must believe this'

Then on election day, when the diebold accuvote machines that count our paper ballots are quite possible manipulated, (as they were in 2004 when Alaska experienced an amazing 200% voter turnout!(see Shannyn Moore and/or bradblog))...then we will all just mindless believe the diebold accuvote data thinking 'I guess their propaganda worked.'

Two billion a year is a lot of money to just let Alaskans keep for their own purposes... hiring some IT guy to change a few numbers when the password is still 'password'....probably only ten thousand or so. Please watch 'Hack the vote' to see just how easy this is. Our voting system has been set up for fraud, and one has to wonder why.

After the last election, for the first time ever, election workers were sent a gift for their work in the mail afterward, a tea bag as a 'Thank you'.

We need to have paper ballots hand counted and posted at the precinct before they are put through diebold accuvote counting machines, then sent through the diebold central tabulator.

We really can't leave our democracy up to chance. As Ronald Reagan said "Trust, but verify"
