With every election, there are forces out there that want to assume control. Powerful organizations, companies, and individuals vie for the influence that’s up for grabs. Often it comes in the form of large campaign donations. If a rich group wants sway with a future president, all they have to do is give him lots of cash.
There’s another way these cabals try to assume power and that’s by manipulating you, the voter. They launch their own kinds of campaigns, aimed at motivating particularly young people to register and vote come Election Day.
They target groups that typically don’t care to vote, thinking that by getting them enthusiastic about the election, they’ll vote for the “right” candidate. But it’s another thinly veiled attempt by these companies to steal the election away from informed, honest Americans.
The latest group trying to steal the election comes in the form of Silicon Valley. These “innovators” are trying to use their social media platforms to encourage people to register to vote. But, as always, their interest isn’t purely patriotic.
From Tech Crunch:
With just 42 days left until the election, it’s crunch time for anyone who hasn’t registered to vote. The deadlines to register in most states fall throughout October, with only a few states allowing in-person registration on the day of the election.
The process can be confusing, and it’s one that tech companies from Google all the way down to small startups like Sam Altman’s VotePlz, which launched a million dollar registration sweepstakes today, are trying to tackle.
New tech-backed voting initiatives seem to be popping up every day, and, although most claim to be nonpartisan, it’s clear that Donald Trump’s unusual campaign has ignited investors and pushed them to act.
There’s Hunter Walk’s Take Off Election Day and Spotify’s new “Clarify” podcast series, CRV’s F**k Trump announcement that offers visa coverage for immigrant founders and Reid Hoffman’s Trumped Up Cards.
We may never understand why so many capitalist-driven industries are so pro liberal, given that they wouldn’t be successful had the democrats historically set up our economy. Yet from Google to Twitter, these tech giants are trying to not only get new voters to register, but subtly sway them in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Much like “Rock the Vote” of bygone years, these tech groups think that the younger generations will naturally support the broken, corrupt, and failed policies of the Democratic Party. Even after eight years of broken promises, these groups still champion the socialist banner.
But they’re not just stopping at that. They feel the need to find new, innovative ways of corrupting the election process.
And while tech is primarily focused on voter registration for this election, some industry leaders are considering making the idea of mobile voting a reality. Bradley Tusk, who said he felt “forced” to vote for Hillary Clinton this year because of Trump’s haphazard policy stances, told our audience at Disrupt SF that he’d offer funding and political support to startups that bring the voting process to mobile phones.
““This is probably a decade-long process to finally get there, but once we do, that’s the best solution to a lot of the dysfunction in our political system,” he said.
By “dysfunction” he means the will of the people having their say. These tech giants simply want to have dominance over our society. By creating a “mobile” method of voting, they can control results, because they have their hands on the system.
Make no mistake, big tech giants and startup founders are greedy businessmen, just like all the others. They back the democrats because they have these politicians in their pockets. They will benefit tremendously should Hillary Clinton gain the White House, because she will bend to their whims. Instead of listening to everyday people.
So take advantage of these voting initiatives. Register and declare on Facebook that you’re voting. But make sure Silicon Valley knows who you’re voting for, and that their scheme to rig the election won’t work.
