Not even twenty-four hours after the Iowa caucus, there is a document circulating around the internet with some pretty damning information. However, we at Common Sense Conspiracy try to stop things like this before they start, and this is another one of our patented bullshit alerts. The document that is circulating is a Google Docs file that claims to show the voting data from the caucus. As you can see in the screenshot above, according to this document, Ron Paul won the Iowan caucus, and not Mitt Romney. The document is fairly well designed, including all the counties of Iowa and going to painstaking detail to make sure that each column adds up and everything makes sense at a glance.
Most of you know that there are plenty of conspiracy theories out there that the Republicans don’t want Ron Paul and frequently find ways to quelch him during debates and public appearances. The conspiracy regarding Ron Paul is one for another article (coming soon), but this Google Docs file that will soon be viral falls firmly in our “Sometimes it is what it is” category. See, there are several glaring problems with this document.
Let’s start with the positive side. Is it possible that Iowa uses Google Docs to process election data? From one respect, it makes a lot of sense. Google Docs is a great application that allows multiple parties to access and edit a document in real-time. It would be a great collaborative tool for different counties to enter their information and allow the spreadsheet to tabulate the data. On the other hand, it makes no sense whatsoever. Google Docs is a useful tool for ordinary residents, but it is unbelievable that something like this would employ a system that could so easily be breached.
There’s also the small problem that the document being circulated shows a total of 19,294 votes total, with Ron Paul winning by a narrow margin. The actual Iowan caucus featured over 122,000 votes.
Best possible scenario…this is the real document they use and it was paused and distributed at a point where Paul was winning, with some 100,000 votes to be counted.
Worst possible scenario…it’s an elaborate fake that someone, most likely in the Ron Paul fold, took a lot of time to make the average bear think that there is a conspiracy.
And there just may be a conspiracy against Ron Paul…but you won’t find proof of it anywhere in this Google Docs file.
The state of Iowa’s caucus kicks off the real fireworks for the race to the Republican nomination. However, the state that supposedly represents a cross-section of Republicans throughout America consists of a 91% white population. Not exactly a fair sampling, huh? Get all the facts in this great article from the Christian Science Monitor. What does Iowa’s position in the nomination process say about the Republican populace? Furthermore, Iowa consists of mostly rural areas and has a high concentration of religious-minded constituents. Is Iowa really a good measure of the Republican mindset around the country? We’ll see.
We at Common Sense Conspiracy know you were worried about your Congressmen and women that represent you…I mean, times are tough, and the state of the economy has taken its toll on everyone. How noble of these people to keep working for the good of our country through these dark times. Turns out, you can put your fears aside… Congress is doing just fine…
We have briefly touched on the impending Sunday Law in a earlier post but here is another good video about the Sunday Law. You have to get past all the Vatican and Antichrist talk before it gets to the Sunday Law. The Sunday Law is going to be used as the long talked about Mark of the Beast. Anyone who doesn’t keep the Sunday Law will be put to death. Which day is the sabbath, Saturday or Sunday?
A neurosurgeon called in to the Mark Levin show to discuss the DEATH PANELS that Obamacare will have to determine whether or not you will live or die. Anyone age 70 and up with neurological problems will go before the death panels. They are no longer patients, they are called “units”. This neurosurgeon was very pissed that other people that do not have his level of education or his level of experience on the job will be dictating to him what he can and can’t do. And what does Sarah Palin have to do with all this? Well she was one of the people that first proclaimed the existence of these death panels under Obamacare. What did she get for it? She got mocked and ridiculed for her statement.
Watch this SHOCKING video of our President justifying the imprisonment, oh sorry, prolonged detention of civilians. Obama doesn’t want them classified as prisoners of war because that means they are covered by the Geneva Convention and are protected from torture. That is why there is such a fuss as to whether or not Obama will veto S1867. To detain or not to detain, that is the question.
There are some things that we all need to take for granted. All nations with the technological capability to do so spy on other nations, especially those that they perceive as a threat. That’s why the news that Iran has managed to capture a United States drone designed to fly over and transmit data should come as no surprise to anyone. The silliness comes in when President Obama makes an impassioned plea for the Iranians to return the drone to the United States. To us, this seems akin to the concept that a young boy throws a baseball through his neighbor’s window and then knocks on the door demanding it back.
We’re not proposing that the United States should apologize for spying on Iran. Nor are we proposing that Iran should apologize for spying on the United States. But come on… you were spying, they caught you. Game over. Naturally, this is a victory for Iran of sorts, but we only make it a bigger victory when our president makes a mockery of himself by politely requesting for his toys to be returned. And just how enthusiastic would we be to return an Iranian craft that was discovered flying over our nation’s capital. No chance in hell we give it back. Finder’s keepers.
Now, a similar incident happened when a United States spy plane crashed in China. The difference here was that the craft was manned. In an unfortunate turn of events, the spy plane collided with a Chinese jet running an ordinary mission. Things seemed to be working there way to fever pitch, but eventually China relented and returned the crew safely. But could anyone really blame them if they had chosen differently?
In the Iranian incident, it is a drone craft, unmanned. They captured it. Take the high road. Either deny any knowledge of it whatsoever. Stop acting like the United States has an inalienable right to spy. There were no American lives on the line. Move on. No doubt the United States has hundreds of these drones, if not thousands. Act like it was no big deal. Don’t give the Iranians a cause to rally around and a reason to feel like they have achieved a victory. Act like it wasn’t a big deal. A drone goes down. Sure they cost a lot of cash, but this is the same government that pays a hundred bucks for a roll of toilet paper, right? Act like it wasn’t a big deal.
Because it shouldn’t be. Which is what really makes Common Sense Conspiracy, and the world, for that matter, wonder.
