Follow the treason....

Honor the Constitution which set out the essential function of safe and certain mail delivery.
Or.... kiss up to Trump & his example of corruption, and "winning" the race to self-destruct America, its institutions, and values.

Hopefully, this will be next week's story rather than the delusional rants, hate, and divisiveness of next week's Trumpworld event.

Scoppe: This quirky little voting tweak could change how candidates behave. And how we behave. | Commentary | postandcourier.com

The potentially magical system is called ranked-choice voting. It starts just like a regular election, but after voters select their first choice, they have the option of picking their second choice, third choice and so on.

What is at stake in Spain on Sunday is whether its enemies, opposed to Freedom and Life, will continue to govern or whether there will be a change.

Tories Hire Facebook #Propaganda Pair to Run Online Election Campaign

Large scale, professional disinformation networks


This summer, it was revealed how Sir Lynton #Crosby’s CTF Partners used Facebook to run a large-scale professional disinformation network on behalf of paying clients including major polluters, the Saudi Arabian government, anti-cycling groups and various foreign political campaigns.

Documents seen by the Guardian show that #Topham and #Guerin, while working as contractors for #CTF Partners, had oversight of dozens of these pages which sidestepped Facebook’s rules on transparent political campaigning, reaching tens of millions of people on behalf of paying clients while appearing to be grassroots independent news sources.

Here is the important one 😉
Highlands

SNP 37.3% (+6.9)
Brex 18.0% (+18)
Lib Dem 17.4% (-1.3)
Con 9.9% - (-4.1)
Green 9.2% (+0.6)
Lab 4.0% (-10.0)
UKIP 2.1% (-9.9)
ChUK 1.6% (+1.6)
Inds x2 0.6% (+0.6)

(Changes from 2014)

Very similar pattern to elsewhere in Scotland. Highlands were a LibDem stronghold in the past, not so much now (for this election anyway). Labour in SIXTH place - remarkable!

#politics #EU #elections #Brexit
 
If these results were replicated across Scotland the SNP would be coasting towards that 3rd seat. In fact, with vote shares over 40% a fourth seat wouldn't be out of the question.

That would be dependent on the relative shares by the other parties.

Note: very early days.

Start of a trend?
Renfrewshire

SNP 41.6% (+11.9)
Brex 13.7% (+13.7)
Lab 13.3% (-21.9)
Lib Dem 10.8% (+7.5)
Con 9.4% (-3.3)
Green 6.7% (+0.6)
ChUK 2.1% (+2.1)
UKIP 1.9% (-8.5)
Inds x2 0.7% (+0.7)

(Changes from 2014)

Not going to do all the EU Parliament vote shares, but this one from West Dunbartonshire is facinating:

SNP 45.5% (+13.3)
Lab 16.0% (-22.1)
Brex 13.8% (+13.8)
Lib Dem 7.3% (+5.4)
Green 6.6% (nc)
Con 6.3% (-1.8)
UKIP 2.1% (-8.5)
ChUK 1.8% (+1.8)
Ind x2 0.5% (+0.5)

(Changes from 2014)

Big jump up for the SNP, but look at that Labour share, 22 points down. Wow!

The next #elections to the European #Parliament will be held between 23 and 26 May 2019. We want to make sure that as many candidates as possible are aware of our work to #empower users to control technology.

As it currently stands, more than half of the current Members of the European Parliament will leave the parliament. We need to establish new contacts to advocate for Free Software in the next term. For this we need your help in order to promote the "Public Money? Public Code!" initiative.

1) #Mail to #EU election #candidates

A mail is a good first step to establish contact with a candidate. If you want to contact your candidate by e-mail, here are some hints and tips for your mailing:
•use a concise subject
•introduce yourself as an interested voter
•introduce Free Software, talk about the four freedoms and why #Free #Software is important for you and the EU
•ask a question - i.e. if the candidate wants to support Free Software in the European Parliament, does the candidate shares our values, which we communicate in our "Public Money? Public Code!" Campaign
•ask if she/he needs any additional information or if she/he is open for a personal conversation about this topic
•include a link to our brochure, ask if she/he wants to have a hard copy

Once you have done this mailing you should also try to stay in contact with your candidate. If you do not get an answer within one week ask friendly when you can expect a reply. Once you got an answer please share it with us in order to discuss how to proceed.

2) Contact EU election candidates on social networks

If you want to contact your candidate on social networks here are some hints and tips:

•especially on social networks we highly recommend you to stay calm
•try to be precise
•use our share pics and videos

•use links to our campaign websites and news items
•ask a question - e.g. if the candidate wants to support Free Software in the European Parliament or whether the candidate shares our values which we communicate in our "Public Money? Public Code!" campaign

Please share your thread with us.

If you contact your candidate, please keep in mind that you are probably contacting somebody who is not familiar with Free Software yet and needs to be convinced. There are lots of arguments you can use, e.g.:

•#Interoperability thanks to #Open #Standards
•#Independence through Free Software #licenses
•#Collaboration shares risks and costs
•#Transparency by default
•#Involvement of local partners and economy
•#Auditable code

You will find all arguments on our FSFE website, on the "Public Money? Public Code!" campaign website, or in our new brochure. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Join our community of freedom fighters

Here are some general hints and tips:

•try to use your own words and do not copy and paste to much
•try to use a non-technical language where possible
•think about which arguments suit which candidate; economic arguments may fit better with candidates who care about the economy, fundamental rights or IT security arguments may fit better with digital rights experts
•do not get upset if a candidate will not follow your arguments, stay calm and try another argument or contact another candidate. There are many who are interested
•always be polite

Thank you for your support!

Best regards,
Alexander Sander
