Where is the RNC's VoteBuilder Software?
Americanthinker ^ | November 7, 2013 | Peter Wilson

A friend went to help another friend who is running for the local School Committee. I'm being coy because my friend did a little undercover work and showed me screenshots of the software the candidate was using, something called VoteBuilder, "a partnership between the DNC and the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee."

It was as sophisticated as anything I have seen while volunteering for Romney and McCain. The software provides the voter name, age, phone number, the voter's polling location, a script for the caller to read with questions like, "Do you need a ride to the polls?" Nothing revolutionary here, but it was thorough.

More importantly, it was a website (protected with sign-in and passwords), which means that a group of people with laptops and cell phones in a living room becomes an instant call center. To make calls for Romney and McCain, I had to schlep into downtown Boston and sit in a harshly- lit rented space where phone banks had been installed at significant expense. I had to take the subway down because there was no parking. I went down by myself and didn't know anyone there. It really wasn't much fun. Compare this experience to joining a team of friends in the comfort of a private house within walking distance of home.

Obama's technological superiority during the presidential election is no secret. According to VoteBuilder's creator NGP VAN (Voter Activation Network), "During the 2012 campaign cycle, VAN/VoteBuilder powered more than 329 million door and phone contacts with voters throughout the country."

And yet with all that superior technology, they couldn’t manage a website for Obama’s healthscare!

It’s as if they hired Romney’s ORCA people.

Still stuck on robo-calls which piss people off and call centers which require people to man them.

The DNC wants elections to succeed. They do not want Obamacare to succeed - they want it to the the private sector for medical services then be replaced with single payer socialized medicine.

Too busy building the Obamadatabase that Maxine Waters was bragging about to get the A-list team designing the Obamascare website. Doesn’t matter, critics are just gonna get death paneled anyway.

Yes, the democrats want to win. The GOP, not so much. Their goal is maintain the status quo.

Seems to me that Romney paid tons of money for a company to do this sort of thing and in My opinion they deliberately sabotaged him on election day.

The GOP had a similar program that I used in the 2004 election it was called Voter Vault IIRC Karl Rove implemented it.

Accurately explains the origination of RebupliCAN’Ts.
Time for an alternate true conservative party not bound by this legal nightmare. No wonder the GOP is run by surrendership vice leadership.
Otherwise: BOHICA, BOHICA, BOHICA, .................

I need to remind everyone that even with this software they can only win, on their best day with a 50% to a 52% majority. This speaks volumes about how shallow their support levels are. If conservatives had a tool like this we would be cleaning up but the GOP-e don't want this tool as they would loose their money and power. Just my 2 cents.

The RNC software needs to ask users questions like the following. Are you aware of the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers, and that the states have never delegated to the federal government, via the Constitution, the speciifc power to regulate, tax and spend for public healthcare purposes?

What he describes isn’t that big of deal. The GOP has had that for a decade.

This losing campaign philosophy designed by the GOPES (gop elite snobs)is to promote “bipartisanism” showed up in Virginia’s campaign when a reported 30% pro-lifers voted for McAllife. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3088649/posts
