In at least the states of Arizona and Nevada, paid petition circulators for Americans Elect have been trying to get enough signatures to get this entity — at once both a corporation and a political party — a place on the the ballot for the 2012 presidential elections.
Because this corporation/political party is trying to orchestrate a bid for the most powerful position on the planet, because it has been funded solely from the contributions of one very wealthy man who is also the corporation/party’s Chairman, and because it has not yet revealed more than three paragraphs’ worth of information to the public despite being engaged in party activities for half a year, it is crucial that we citizens work together to find out as much as possible about this group.
Have you been asked to sign the Americans Elect petition to place it on the presidential ballot? If so, would you consider sharing what you know? In what state were you approached by Americans Elect petition contractors? How did the Americans Elect contractors describe the Americans Elect strategy, either in verbal conversation or in written documents? Was Americans Elect described primarily as a process in which all Americans would be able to participate, deciding for ourselves what sort of presidential candidate should be nominated? Was Americans Elect described to you as a party with a particular policy platform according to which possible candidates would be vetted> Or was Americans Elect described to you in different terms than either of these?
If you have any information along these lines to share about Americans Elect’s corporate/party ballot access efforts, I’d appreciate it if you’d pass that information along by adding a comment below.
