A Libertarian Future accuses presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry of “cheating and buying votes for online polls”

From A Libertarian Future, April 11th, 2016:
Darryl Perry Cheated In Our Poll And Bought Fake Votes 3

If you have been following along with our bi-weekly polling you may have noticed that our most recent Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate preference poll was hacked. Thousands of illegitimate votes were cast that completely skewed the results in a way that we have not seen before. Using live Google Analytics we were able to see that the majority of these votes were cast in the middle of the night and thus likely not by humans. We therefore reset the poll and will now require a social login and record IP addresses to prevent future cheating.

The most suspicious thing was that these votes were cast for a candidate who had not previously seen more than a handful of support. Candidate Darryl W. Perry lead that poll ahead of Gary Johnson, Austin Petersen, and John McAfee. It was blatantly obvious what had happened but at first we had no tangible proof that Perry himself had done the cheating.

Now we do thanks to a fan who sent us this link. The embedded screencast video and screenshots from Fiverr.com proves that Darryl W. Perry has been cheating and buying votes for online polls.

Fiverr.com is a gig website where people sell a variety of services for – you guessed it – five dollars. Apparently they even offer fake votes for online polls. According to his Fiverr profile – which has been verified by Facebook and email – Darryl W. Perry has had an account with Fiverr since 2012. This is not some fake account that popped up last week but a legitimately
Darryl Perry Cheated In Our Poll And Bought Fake Votes 4verified and longstanding profile. It even has a short bio!

Check the link and see for yourselves that Darryl W. Perry has bought votes from this service and cheated in online polls. You can see his review and view his profile for yourself. The review was posted was posted twenty one days ago which is shortly after the Libertarian Party’s last poll was made live. That poll saw an unusually high vote total for Perry just as our hacked poll did.

In the first Libertarian Party poll, taken in early March, Perry only got 145 votes. But then, in the last poll, Perry managed an astounding 469 votes. That’s an increase of 324 votes – quite a suspicious jump when you recall that the Fiverr gig is for 300 votes. It’s clear that Darryl W. Perry cheated in the Libertarian Party’s poll as well.

What’s most astonishing is that after Perry cheated he had the audacity to leave a review of the vote buying service! Without that review we may have never known that Perry had been cheating. Thank goodness for stupid criminals. Perry has been caught red-handed.

We will of course be excluding Darryl W. Perry from all of our future polls. We encourage the Libertarian Party to do the same as it is clear that he has cheated in their polls as well. This is shameful behavior for a Presidential candidate. It’s outright disqualifying and Darryl W. Perry should be ashamed of himself. He does not deserve to call himself a Libertarian Party Presidential candidate nor be a member of the Party of Principle.

Darryl W. Perry responded:

I can assure you that I did not buy votes for any poll on A Libertarian Future. The votes I did buy using Fiverr were for something completely unrelated, and I did it just to see if the poll I suspected of being hacked was hackable

Darryl W. Perry: Unlocked iPhone opens privacy debate

Darryl-headshot-2015-sq

Darryl W. Perry is seeking the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination. The following was published on FPP.cc on April 10th, 2016:

The FBI recently dropped a lawsuit against Apple that sought to force the phone manufacturer to unlock the iPhone used by a shooting suspect in San Bernardino, California. Before the suit was dropped, Apple said they did not have the ability to unlock the iPhone adding that creating a program to unlock the phone would be arduous and create a back door which would essentially nullify the encryption meant to protect the private information of the phone’s user. The lawsuit was dropped because the FBI claims to have found a way into the phone, though no one at the FBI is saying how they unlocked the phone.

Reuters reports, “Apple Inc has said it would like the government to share how it cracked the iPhone security protections. But the [FBI], which has been frustrated by its inability to access data on encrypted phones belonging to criminal suspects, might prefer to keep secret the technique it used.”

Lawsuit dropped, phone unlocked, case closed, end of discussion, right? Not so fast. The San Bernardino iPhone was just one of the phones the feds wanted to access and since Apple says they don’t have the ability to unlock the phones, some in Congress now want to compel the company to install a back door on their devices.

UPI reports draft legislation filed by Senators Richard Burr & Diane Feinstein would “effectively requires tech firms, in accordance with a court’s order, to hack into devices involved in criminal investigations when authorities can’t do it.” This would most assuredly require software on every device to be preloaded with a back door the feds – and only the feds, don’t think for a moment that hackers could access the back door clearly marked “for federal agent use only” – would be able to use to access encrypted data in an “intelligible format” (i.e. encypted data must become unencrypted data).

Kevin Bankston, the director of the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute,told Wired “this is easily the most ludicrous, dangerous, technically illiterate proposal I’ve ever seen.”

Wired notes the legislation is dangerous because it does not limit the legal obligation placed on tech companies “to ‘reasonable assistance’ but rather ‘assistance as is necessary,’ a term that means the bill goes beyond current laws that the government has used to try to compel tech firms to help with data access.”

Bankston adds the bill would also require all “license distributors [such as] Apple’s app store, Google’s play store, [and] any platform for software applications somehow has to vet every app to ensure they have back door[s] or little enough security to comply.” Adding the proposal “seem[s] to also be a massive internet censorship bill.”

This is not the first time that Diane Feinstein has tried to force tech companies to do the government’s bidding. Luckily her previous attempts to stifle free speech and privacy have failed. This legislation will likely have the same fate. Privacy advocates say this bill is so bad that it has “almost zero likelihood” of passing. And that is good news for everyone who supports the right of people to develop, sell, and use encryption technology and distributed software that allows users to protect their privacy.

Christopher Cantwell: A Muslim Vice President?

In a video uploaded to YouTube on April 7th, 2016, Christopher Cantwell, a controversial libertarian activist, talk show host and writer, talks about Libertarian Party presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry’s selection of Will Coley, an American Muslim, to be his running mate for the election. The video lasts 13 minutes.

Video of the Libertarian Party of Florida’s presidential debate

From IPR, April 10th, 2016:

Below is a video of yesterday’s Libertarian Party of Florida’s presidential debate featuring candidates Gary Johnson, Marc Allan Feldman, Darryl W. Perry and Austin Petersen. The video was taken from Petersen’s campaign Facebook page and re-uploaded to YouTube. It lasts for an hour and 16 minutes.

One testy moment of the debate came at the 40 minute mark in the video, when Darryl W. Perry said,  ” I would be doing a lot better than at least one candidate on this stage, who still owes about $1.4 million from his 2012 campaign.” Johnson immediately interrupted, saying it’s “it’s not true, it’s not true.” Perry countered, saying “that’s what the FEC filings say, Governor.”

Johnson replied that the FEC would not allow him to take “it” [campaign debt] off the books. Johnson added that every penny donated to his campaign goes to the 2016 campaign. As he was talking, the moderator yelled “order!” saying this was not the time for a campaign response. Johnson angrily responded: “when there is an outright lie or an outright misrepresentation,” before being cut off by the moderator, who told the former New Mexico governor  that “you are out of order.”

The moderator then proceeded to say that “money would still be owed to the 2012 campaign,” continuing the point Perry was making. A beet-faced Johnson retorted: “what…you as the moderator are saying what?” to which some of the audience responded with faint laughter. Johnson continued, saying “you are out of order” to the moderator.” After that, there was some more laughter followed by applause from the debate viewership,
