Wow, we are getting national attention with our GOTV effort and seem to have really struck a nerve with the Democrat Party. I wanted to update each of you on the ongoing media hype regarding our GOTV calls and inactive voter surge. On Friday and throughout the weekend a series of automated calls were made to thousands of Republicans who were already registered but have been placed on the inactive list by the Secretary of State.
The voice message was simple and direct: ““Voter registration records have been reviewed in your county and there is a possibility that you or someone in your household may have had their voter registration marked inactive. If you have not received your ballot yet, this may be the reason. The Oregon Republican Party wants you to be able to vote in next Tuesday’s election. In the 2010 election, Republican Chris Dudley lost his race for governor by just over 1 percent. Last May, another Republican race ended in a tie vote, and was literally decided by a dice roll. Don’t let our state’s future be determined by a roll of the dice. You may be the deciding vote. Contact your county elections office immediately. By going directly to the elections office, you can reactivate your registration, pick up your ballot, and vote on the spot.” (Some early calls used a slightly different script)
Incredibly, Secretary of State Jean Atkins has tried to spin this as voter suppression, with the liberal media echoing her false narrative. But Oregon voters know better! They are thanking the ORP for alerting them of their status and providing information on how to get their ballots to vote!
Our plan is working and people are engaging. County elections clerks are reporting a burst in phone calls and increase in ballot pickups as a result of being notified that they were on the inactive voters list. These calls never told callers their vote wouldn’t count or that they were not registered. This was a complete fabrication on the part of the Secretary of State and the Democrat Party.
We need your help. If any of you recorded the KOIN 6 news broadcast where the Secretary of State asked people to “just ignore the calls” please let me know. That IS voter suppression and it needs to be addressed. Kevin Hoar and I were watching when the video was pulled down and the narrative was changed. It really is important to get a copy of the original video if anyone has it recorded.
Today is a very exciting day for Oregon Republicans! We have great candidates for our statewide offices, our federal offices, House seats, Senate seats, county commissioners, mayors, city councilor, and on down the ballot. Many have worked very hard on the Defeat97 campaign. The ORP has sent out over 200,000 mail pieces for candidates, thus saving them thousands of dollars.
Each and every one of you has had a part in our successes and we can’t thank you enough. The time has come to start turning this state around and we couldn’t do it without your support.

Compare this “I am royalty” approach of modern politicians to Harry Truman, a man of character.
Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.
The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri. His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.
When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.
After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.
When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.”
Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.”
As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.
Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale.
Alex Jones is of course correct on this issue. One has to admire the passion.
