Shoot them! Shoot them now!
They were just getting the GPS coordinates of your house so the black helicopters to find you more easily.
the first guy was lying, I’d be he had nothing to do with the GOP
Here’s my election fraud file:
Do you know if he had actual absentee ballots with him? I’m asking, because I thought you had to request those from your county clerk’s office, at least that’s the way it is here.
You are right to suspect something. This smells to me. The lesson is to ask anyone knocking on your door to show ID. Write their name & license number down and tell them you are doing this for your protection since you’ve had some strange people asking uncomfortable political questions.
You must be on the lookout for zombies.
Why not call the FL GOP headquarters and ask about it?
You are right to be suspicious. Call your local GOP headquarters and tell them what happened and ask if this is something they are sponsoring. If not, just make a report to the police. They won’t do anything, but at least you will have it on record. And who knows if others have had similar experiences that might be on record. Do it while you remember the descriptions of the men who visited you.
“We all bundle! Puppy?”
Could be as simple as strangers casing your house for burglary later. Or even an armed home invasion robbery. What better excuse for robbers to check if anyone is home and how old they are. They already know if you are a repub, you may have some valuables in house.
I spent 6 hours today working for R and R in Ft Lauderdale FL. Your first visit sounds like what we were doing. Your second visit is from creepy town and id nothing that was sanctioned by the campaign.
I would not trust someone offering absentee ballots door to door. More likely trying to disenfranchise you by having you fill out the ballot and then dump it, not mail it in, preventing a vote against Obama.
The door to door election study is likely a scam. I’ve received phone surveys several times for my view on the election. I’ve been in focus groups by colleges for political opinions. In all cases, such as stopped in the mall, started with “I’m XYZ, with such and such university, and we are doing a political survey of likely voters, would you like to participate.” No one has come to my door, and it certainly wouldn’t be an “election study” without a clear and up front statement of the credentials. I deliberately join these surveys to ensure that Republicans are represented and even took follow up surveys specifically for Republicans. All surveys started with the person’s name, here’s my supervising professor, I go to this school.
I think you’re getting targeted because of the Romney sign.
I did door-to-door today, too. I already had the names and addresses of registered voters. People were very willing to tell me who they planned to vote for, which surprised me.
However, I don’t think I would be willing to tell anyone who I voted for if they already had my name and address. Who knows what the leftists will do with this info if Obama is “reelected”?
I had a young woman come to my door regarding absentee ballots. I told her I didn’t like them & thought people should go to the polls to vote. She left.
I wouldn’t open the door to strangers — you never know whether it’s real, voter fraud, or a robbery attempt using election as an excuse to get into your house.
I would make sure to vote, but wouldn’t even open the door to talk to anyone.
“......making sure everyone was familiar with voting precincts and offering absentee ballots......”
Nothing wrong with this if he was offering APPLICATIONS for absentee ballots for you to send to your local board of elections. If he was offering actual absentee ballots, it was some sort of scam or attempt to make you think you had already voted and trick you into not going to the polls on election day.
I suspect you meant he was offering to give you the APPLICATION forms. If so, he was legit.
Josh Thompson said it best:
“Our houses are protected by the good Lord and a gun And you might meet ‘em both if you show up here not welcome son”
Just because there is an upcoming election, that doesn’t mean strangers are now allowed to trespass on private property. If they want to make appointments for their visits, fine, but do not show up unannounced.
