MOT=  Margin OTheft = That area of action that lies past profit and before insanity. It is an area where theft takes place. Some persons are known to spend their entire 'working' lives within the MOT. Many spend much time testing the two boundaries of the MOT margin (profit and insanity), where estimates of fair profit end, and where insanity begins, with theft in between.

Margin of Theft =  Actions judged (polled) by readers to lie between profit and insanity

Beyond Slavery/Survival = Profit,  Beyond Profit = Theft,  Beyond Theft = Insanity

MOT Poll basis for Ballot conclusions on theft: It is considered here that profit in goods and services, including emotional profit, is the driving motivation behind politics, work, money, philosophy, advancement, family, religion, power, beauty, competition and creativity. Often this gain from work past mere survival is attained through an unfair margin of unfair advantage called theft at the expense of others in trade, sports, and the pursuit of power. MOT research indicates that it is a natural human need to desire something, or more, for nothing. And taken to extremes past profit, the result of this desire past profit can become theft and far worse. These extremes usually become manifest by the actions of people in society who have a history of producing little or no product or service to society. Instead they seek a permanent existence living within the Margin Of Theft, where positions of power and influence can maintain the unearned luxuries often associated with those positions. Also, few of them seem to have taken any civics courses during school years that show their responsibilities of action and behavior within American society. And more often than not they behave, as radio announcer Rush Limbaugh describes, "like spoiled-brat adolescents" who the MOT finds, forever and perpetually throw tantrums until they get their way, and then instead of being satisfied when they don't get their way for free power, influence, and money, they just move on, without apology, to the next opportunity for theft. MOT Dwellers rarely get laid off or fired, or actually have to work for products or services received.

Credibility of Poll Votes Being Counted: MOT Poll ballot vote counting is indicated on screen the instant that his/her vote has been 'sent' by the voter. The vote becomes part of an average weight, and that number can be seen by the voter changing up or down, on-screen, when the voter (sender) presses the ‘Send’ button. This is why the average weight of theft number is taken to four decimal places to the right of the decimal point. It can show a change that each single vote in every ten thousand votes makes to the average weight. And this average number only (not the voter weight number), for that voting instant in time, is recorded and locked in the 'Cloud' forever, and cannot be changed. 

Ballot Voting Risk: This is determined by the user, who may be concerned that someone is physically looking over their shoulder when accessing on their computing device. There may be some entity that thinks you are important enough to place a surveillance camera over your shoulder, or try and see who can possibly be voting from a WiFi in your restaurant, airplane, doctor's place, office, or home.

MOT Poll databaseThe MOT Poll database of Ballots is an educational and entertainment methodology. 

Voting times and locations: Votes ('Sends') are limited to people within the United States with access to WiFi's -  a coverage that carpets the entire country and most of the world. Votes are further limited to one per day, per Ballot, per US WiFi address, as in, 'one vote per 24 hours, per Ballot, per any single Starbucks Coffee Shop, home, office, waiting area, airplane WiFi, or store location'. Remaining time before voting again is allowed can be seen on screen when voting is attempted before the required 24 hours wait has expired at that WiFi location, for that Ballot.

Ballot Facts: Ballot 'Facts', videos, 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 'journalism' or opinions. For those Ballots that refer simply to the "President", please note the "Ballot Creation Date" 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.

Voter Agreement with Facts and conclusions: 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 US reader the personal range between agreeing with nothing presented and still voting 'insanity', and agreeing with everything and voting 'zero theft'/ 'no problem'. A voter can also not agree or not disagree (no opinion) with Facts and/or Conclusions, and still vote a weight of theft.

Statistics: Vote percentages of these agreements/non-agreements/no-inputs are provided in Ballots listed in Report 1 in the 'Statistics' section. Voters are unrestricted by age, gender, or affiliations. Anyone in the US who is aware enough to read and operate a computer keyboard or cellphone can be an anonymous MOT self-pollster/voter. These agreements/non-agreements/'no-inputs' are also statistics contained for each Ballot in the "Statistics" section, Report 1. Report 2 in “Statistics” lists all Ballots whose average weight of theft is ‘insane’…in descending order starting from ‘most insane’.

MOT Ballot Writers:

* US Citizenship is required for all MOT writers.

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

Search WindowTo see if the MOT Poll has any past theft reference to any current item of interest, type what is desired in the Search Window and see if there is a Ballot that applies. If one were to type in "Warren", for example, two ballots of the past will appear that mention Senator Elizabeth Warren. If one were to type in, "Ebola" today (2019), one ballot created in 2014 will appear to vote on if desired, and one can thereby be aware if anything significant has been done about it since. 

Some MOT terminology:

MOT culture: A parasitic infection dedicated to theft and not making things, or not providing a service for legal profit. It has been most associated with gangs, the Mafia, and pre-civilized tribes.

MOTsters: People of a MOT culture who are members of, or affiliated with, a cult, click, government, or religion. A full-time MOTster is one who is allowed to live their lives completely within the Margin of Theft where little or no product or service from them for society can be detected. They can often be identified by the use of unearned high quality items and services from society. Today in the US, many Congresspersons fall within the 'full time' application of this definition. 

MOT Squad: A group dedicated to ferreting out and identifying MOTsters. Squad theme song is, "The Monster Mash" (1962) by Bobby Pickett imitating Boris Karloff. "It is a graveyard smash, and caught on in a flash. It is the Monster Mash!!" ('Motster' and 'Monster' can become inter-changeable by those familiar with the website, 

MOT Dwellers: Those whose primary physical needs for food, shelter, and clothing are provided by government or parents/relatives for periods of time and coverage past initial human needs and welfare considerations. This includes many second and third generation full-time welfare recipient families, and many US Congresspersons.

MOTus Operandi: Methodologies particular to MOT organizations such as stealth, vague wordings, hidden agendas, sleight of hand, head fakes, double standards, and creating confusion, negative emotions, and division.

Castle-Potentate MOT Extortion Scam: A Medieval practice of people in high places taking things from passers-by in exchange for not throwing rocks down on them. It is a primitive method of extortion similar to those practiced by Principalities, Duchies, Earldoms, and many Mid Eastern countries today.   

Jabba the MOT: A MOTster with a secret desire to eat the planet.

Other 1: Insane and Crazy - To call or judge someone "Insane" or "Crazy" means little without an understandable and acceptable definition or reference from which the judger can judge. MOT Ballot judgements are largely based on a desire to recognize and avoid actions of 'insanity' in a society. MOT 'Profit ' is considered good for the individual and society. MOT 'Theft ' is considered bad for society, but can be considered good for at least some when they are not caught and punished. MOT 'Insanity ' is considered bad or evil for everyone eventually, both victims and thieves. "Evil" is herein more simply defined as something just really bad for the happiness of humans, instead of some bug-eyed general cosmically defined word meaning horror, terrorism, death and darkness to all 'good' people... 'insane' actions are also parasitic in nature, where eventually the described actions result in the host society being eaten or consumed both physically and spiritually by individual parasites until both 'entities' are dead or lifeless.

"Unique Website Holds the Government Accountable Through the Voice of the Masses

August 13 2018 - 03:30AM
PR Newswire (US)

NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Mot Poll is a new and inventive website that lets people weigh in and vote on contemporary issues and see their vote counted instantly as well as see what others think. Ballots on a range of topics contain information/facts that readers vote as truth or not truth, and then do the same for the analysis/conclusion reached. Drawing in part on the democratic and free model established by author John Macidull's book Election 2016 and the Margin of Theft, is an online forum that allows users to weigh in and help to statistically determine the Margin of Theft— or how much damage— the government and infiltrators' policies and practices are causing to the country, according to the site.

As cultural critic Jake Dilloway writes, "[this site] allows users to proffer their opinions and, through an easily navigable online form, have their voices heard in a meaningful, statistical conglomeration… thereby bestowing agency onto the public through a deeper understanding of the consequences of domestic and foreign policy."

While identifying the most important issues facing citizens today, presents a venue wherein one can simply go to the site, answer pertinent questions and, instantaneously, see how their beliefs match or differ with the consensus of their fellow users. Having the ability to put your finger on the pulse of the American consciousness with just one click of the button could not be more important than in today's political climate.
