GOP Has Been Getting Data Mining Information on People Throughout the US. It's key to their GOTV!

You are especially studied if you register Republican or Independent.

The Washington Post has an article in which the say the GOTV was the key to Chafee's win, and mentions the GOP's Voter Vault.

But the "Voter Vault" is really the result of data mining on Republican, Independents and "independent minded" Democrats and leads to harassment (as the Post article shows) of such voters during the political season.

Information on the Data Mining and the data base called Voter Vault was revealed in an LA Times piece called "The GOP Knows You Don't Like Anchovies".
It describes the kind of harassment Republicans and Independents get on election day and the massive data mining possible on all voters, but definitely on those of interest, Republicans, Independents and identified 'independently minded' Democrats.

And after you cooperate with them once do you think they will let you alone in the future?

Does the charity ever stop calling you for more if you've given them something in the past few years?

Does the church you visit for one Sunday forget to call or come by to make sure you wouldn't want to come again (and incidently drop in a nice donation when they pass the xxxxx).

Think about it.

Here's a post from another blog on that article. From there you can also get the link to the original LA Times piece that I see is still available for free.

Just remember that Big Oil gives 81% of it's donations to Republicans. The money they've been stealing from you is going to sponsor data mining, lies, and harassment on voters by the GOP.

Think about it. Should these people be in charge?
