MOT POLL Information Page

Margin of Theft (MOT) Poll   Video:   Below is a conglomeration of explanations in support of the existence of this poll.

This is a poll by human beings in the United States of any of their gender, age, affiliation, or belief, and who desire to be polled on their evaluation of government and media actions. These actions may constitute the theft of things, including rights, from them. As with any polling methodology, the results can be manipulated by those who desire to cancel a vote from another, as with website 'shadow bannning', and the mis-use of voter identification. Therefore the MOT Poll does not require voter ID. The MOT Poll also minimizes cheating by restricting a vote on any action (Ballot) presented to one vote per day from every electronic voting place... every WiFi address at this time. Also, the voter can see his/her vote count instantly by the mere observance of the change in the average weight of their vote when the vote is placed, which comprises the Poll.

The MOT Poll collects related facts and histories on subjects of concern to provide more accurate analyses and conclusions derived from them. It then provides a free and accessable voting database for public feelings about these conclusions that can be used as grounds for making better, more informed, decisions for actions that are in the best interest of the United States and its citizens.

Readers receive current Ballot data and graphic quantifications on-screen in real time. (See reports 1 and 2 for detailed statistics.) Statistical inferences and "margins of error" are left to the reader. What is seen on the Ballot is what one gets within and outside the averaged Margin of Theft (MOT) for each Ballot. What the reader sees has taken place after MOT Poll personnel are out of the picture. Averages and percentages are done automatically and instantly upon each US reader's vote for all to see.

Theft herein includes the stealing from, or waste of, US citizens' tax money, health, time, lives including murder, work effort, security efforts, trust in government, and national integrity. The MOT Poll is a public theft and insanity identifier, used to collect and weigh harmful actions. Facts and conclusions are presented for the weighing of importance by US residents. These judgments  are sent from any US computer or cell phone, and are counted in the MOT (Margin OTheft) POLL for viewing, and for data in support of possible future actions. For actions already polled to be insane, go to Report 2 under Statistics in the Menu above. 

The MOT Poll is also an ongoing poll, where a subject can be voted on by any US Resident once a day after the Poll Ballot’s creation, and can provide trends of importance. It is for those who care enough about a subject to vote on how they feel about it, and also for those who want to see what others feel and have felt about it. The Poll measures the perception of theft taking place in the margin that is past profit and into insanity.

Ballot Voting Risk: There is no motpoll-known software/computer capability to determine how, or if, one votes on a Ballot. All that can be determined at this time is if a particular WiFi (geographic location) has been used to access the website, or any other website, for possible reading. Similarly, there is no internet or other capability to identify any individual who actually accesses the site. Currently, the only known way of violating the privacy of an individual acessing or voting on a MOT Poll Ballot is to spy on the indivuals' fingering and/or screen display when he/she is using a computer keyboard. This would be equivalent to eliminating the secrecy of our secret-ballot voting system. Therefore the 'voting risk' at this time is determined by the user who may be concerned that someone is physically looking over their shoulder when accessing             

MOT Poll database

MOT Poll Ballots show immediate and later feelings of US readers. The MOT Poll is an educational and entertainment methodology. It entertains the idea that exposed judgments about theft can better solidify and reveal individual feelings on issues that affect people's lives in the US. Some major US News programs have the saying of, "We Report, You Decide". But they provide no timely or individual means for you to "Decide" anything without cost and identification effort first. And even then, there is little to no reference to what was "decided" by you. The MOT Poll provides a methodology for you to instantly judge and decide, and for all readers to see their and other's "Decisions" on screen in real time.  

Votes are limited

Ballot votes are limited to one per day per US WiFi address, as in, 'one vote per 24 hours, per any single Starbucks Coffee Shop, or home, office, airplane, or store location'. If enough people in the US want to run around to vote more than once on one Ballot each day, then a small difference could be made in the statistics. However, many people voting instantly a day, and especially again over a longer period of time, would reasonably preclude any significant impact on general recorded feelings made by ‘run-arounds’. The time-location limit on voting eliminates 'leaning on the button' that could significantly bias the statistics.

Ballot Facts

Ballot reported 'Facts' and photographs are obtained from historical records, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NewsMax, and major US newspapers and radio stations, all in the public domain. 'Facts' in the MOT Poll are considered 'Facts' when reported the same in both the 'left-liberal' and 'right-conservative' public news sources, without 'journalistic' opinions. 'Opinions' are included for separate agreement  and data source by the user within the 'Analysis'-'Conclusion' protion of each MOT Poll Ballot. For those Ballots that refer simply to the "President", please note the "Ballot Creation Date" under each Ballot to determine who the President was at the time. On many Ballots, the reader can click on words that are blue in color for further references on the subject. Clicking on the 'back', pointing left arrow, will then get one back to the Ballot.

Ballot Voters

Ballot voters can designate whether they agree or not with the facts and/or conclusions presented, and still vote a weight of theft. This allows the reader the personal range between agreeing with nothing presented and still voting 'insanity', and agreeing with everything and voting zero 'theft', meaning herein, just profit or survival. Voters are unrestricted by age, gender, or affiliations. Anyone in the US who is aware enough to read and operate a computer keyboard can be an anonymous MOT voter if desired.

Ballot Researchers, Analyzers, and Writers

MOT Ballot writers/analyzers (limited to nine) are US citizens. Credentials include:

* Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

* Bachelor Degrees in Engineering and Science.

* Decades of experience in Government, industry, the military, and farming.

* Total of four US Military citations for heroism. 

Ballot Weights

Ballot weights are instantly averaged to four decimal places in order to show the immediate and unaltered inputs for each reader vote at the instant of voting. (Watch the average weight change up or down in numerical value when you click on the 'send' button, which thereby transmits your judgment on that date and time to the rest of the world.)

Ballot weights put a numerical measurement/intensity of how the voter feels about the magnitude of theft, if any, the Ballot presents.

The Margin of Theft (MOT) is defined on a weight-of-intensity scale decided by the voter averages between '0' (No Theft), '5' (Some Theft),'10' (Much Theft), and '15' (Insanity). An averaged Ballot weight below 5.0000 can be considered "Profit" or "No Problem" relative to theft. An averaged Ballot weight between  5.0000 and 10.0000 can be cause for concern. An averaged Ballot weight over 10.0000 (Listed in Report 2) is cause for alarm and possible action. 

Profit and Theft Parameters

"No Problem" or "Profit" in various forms is considered good, necessary, or not harmful, with an average MOT Meter theft weight of '0' to '5'. Theft is herein considered bad, even when good for the perpetrator if uncaught or unpunished, with a voter assigned theft weight of '5' or '10'. When an action is bad for both the victim and the perpetrator (Killing the goose that lays the golden eggs, destroying either the short or long-term hand that feeds you, or when help and compassion is used against those providing help and compassion [being a jerk]), it is considered insane or evil with a voter assigned weight of '15'. (There are other medical and varied uses of the word, ‘insane’. Einstein said it consisted of doing the same thing over and over again with the same bad rusults, and then expecting a different result when doing it again. The dictionary has many definitions including ‘utterly foolish or unreasonable’. MOT writers use a ‘victim and perpetrator’ application of ‘insanity’ to more easily associate the word to the action of theft where the results of action is bad for both, either soon or in the long term.)

Translations: The MOT Poll can be translated into any of 103 languages by utilizing the translation box in the upper-left corner of all pages.

US Congressional terminology: The US Congress is comprised of the two Houses of Congress, the Senate (100), and the House of Representatives (435). All members of the Senate are called Senators, regardless of sex. Members of the House can be called Congressmen, Congresswomen, or (seldom used) Congressperson. Members of Congress can be used as reference to both Senators and Congresspersons collectively, but is usually in reference to the House of Representatives.

MOT Poll Motto: "All the crap that's fit to print." US MOT Poll voters generally consider Government as hired hands that they warmly and gladly pay for with taxes. Most MOT readers and voters do not have the time or desire to themselves be vigilantes or accountants, and much appreciate those who do provide these public services of defense, protection, and economic stability.

Other 1: When was the last time you were polled? Who are the Poll people who ask the questions? Do you know any one of them? Do you ever wish a poll would call you to put in your two cents? Do Gallup, Rasmussen, Quinnipiac, Washington Post, Real Clear Politics, etc. polls ask questions other than for predicting or perhaps swaying elections, or for valuing candidate credibility and personalities? What about a poll that asks what you might think about specific actions that might harmfully affect you and your society now, and into the future? The MOT Poll places actions, including past concerns, that apply to the present, up front for current judgement… and this allows all persons, by polling themselves on many questions based on known facts, to then better make their determinations on candidates and officials who represent us.

Other 2: The MOT Poll is different from other polls in that US residents herein poll themselves for entertainment and information. It can give them pause to both evaluate their views given major facts in existence, and also to see what others think about things of national importance. Credibility of facts presented are determined by the reader based on information from all sources, including libraries and dictionaries, that are in the piblic domain. Voting anonymity is determined by the voter.

Other 3For an overall and more comprehensive view of theft trends in the US, it is best to read all MOT Ballots as chapters in a book. Also, many Ballots of even years-past creation dates remain viably current for consideration upon which to make a judgment.  

Other 4: The MOT Poll does not currently choose advertisers. Google does.

Other 5: The MOT Poll was partially inspired by two books that were published in 2013 and 2016, "A Margin of Theft: Getting  the Mind Around Government" and, "Election 2016 and The Margin of Theft" by John C. Macidull

Other 6: Appreciators of fine food will appreciate the difference between MOT Poll lemon and Liberal sugar. 

Other 7: Largely because of the Main Stream Media and educational institutions, much of the US population has been taught not to think. The MOT Poll helps people to both research and think for themselves.

MOT Poll basis for Ballot conclusions on theft:

MOT Poll Ballot writers of analyses and conclusions consider that profit is necessary to all in successful and happy human societies as follows: Profit is beyond survival, slavery, and serfdom. Beyond profit is theft. Beyond theft is insanity, which is bad for both victim and perpetrator. In the business of being human, most people cannot pursue happiness without profit, or the conserving of profit to enable them to later enjoy more happiness. Profit, including emotional profit, is, by human experience, the driving motivation behind politics, work, philosophy, advancement, family, religion, power, beauty, and creativity. During the first years of sustenance and nurturing after birth, when a child gets everything for physical and emotional survival for nothing 'given' in return except esteem, pride, and hope for parents, a time eventually arrives when they (we) are required to make efforts themselves. For many, there is a reluctance during this transition to have to work at things they don't like to do, or think, and a propensity can evolve to steal in lieu of working much, or not working at all, especially when wealth without equal work or fair trade, and social esteem, can be gained in the process. For this reason, bounds are normally placed on children by their parents and cultures to halt theft for the purpose of physical survival in their part of the world. Free societies fade into darkness when its people do not weigh, or are not allowed to weigh, profit versus theft in the lives and actions of their leaders, their representatives, and themselves.
