Guaranteed Parrot

Fraud-Free Guaranteed Vote Keynote

If you want to vote, you should be able to easily get a voter ID and have guaranteed access to a mail-in ballot that will be counted. Welcome to Keynote Saturday, when we wrap up the week’s reporting on our top solution to resolve voter rights vs. voter fraud.

Spoiler
Alert

If you’d prefer to role-play this week’s puzzle, first, now would be a good time to swoop over to PolicyKeys.com. You can read about this week’s political flap in our Monday Puzzle Drop article. On Tuesday we untied the knot of difficult-to-call roles in the Tiebreaker. Wednesday we dish on all the odd couples for and against this week’s solution with our Politically Strange Bedfellow article. Thursday, your political digital twin quenches your thirst for key reasons for and against this week’s solution. Friday, like in baseball, we give you the BOX Score from this week’s big game.

What’s a 
Fraud-Free
Guaranteed Vote?

Frictionless Voter IDs and 
Guaranteed Access to Mail-In Ballots

Almost everyone does business with their State. If you pay taxes, have a permit, driver’s or marriage license, and are not in jail, you should get an almost automatic voter ID. Just check a box on a form and even upload a photo. Guaranteed bar-coded mail-in ballot access protects against fraud. Everyone has the right to vote or not.

Political Table’s
Four Sides

Abundance

A Fraud-Free Guaranteed Vote would unlock the full potential of our democracy, inviting more citizens to participate. With easy-to-get IDs and reliable mail-in ballots, we can ensure that the voter pool is as large and diverse as possible, echoing the abundant spirit that America is built on.

Thrift

By streamlining the voter ID process and making mail-in ballots more efficient, we’re also being economical. A simplified system could reduce administrative costs in the long run, fulfilling the principles of thrift without sacrificing the quality of our electoral process.

Commerce

The business sector thrives when society is stable and governed by the collective will. Guaranteed voting rights through effortless IDs and trustworthy mail-in options not only encourage civic participation but also create a more predictable social contract, which is good for commerce. No one is being forced to vote which aligns with liberty.

Governance

The ultimate aim of governance is to represent the people accurately. A Fraud-Free Guaranteed Vote—where voter IDs are easily accessible and mail-in ballots are a guaranteed option—ensures that everyone has an equal opportunity to influence the decision-making process. This strengthens the legitimacy and efficacy of our governance structures.

Tuesday’s
Tiebreaker Recap

POLI THE AI looks at over 16 million variables to determine a general bias for change or status quo for each of the 128 roles per puzzle. We call these loose ties to beliefs, attitudes, values, and ethics. POLI called the following roles a tie. Here’s how the editors broke the tie.

A Fraud-Free Guaranteed Vote would require a frictionless Voter ID and guaranteed access to mail-in ballots.

First Half: Tiebreaker Score

YES 4 v NO 0
for a net 4 YES

Second Half: Overruling POLI THE AI

YES 0 v NO 24
for a net 24 NO

Conclusion:
By the Numbers

The Two Tiebreaker Rounds ended with a score of YES 4 v NO 24, so the NOs picked up 20 roles overall.

POLI had support as nearly unanimous. Our editors were a bit less convinced. Nevertheless, we predict an 81% ±3 near consensus of roles in this country to support the Right to a Fraud Free Guaranteed Vote, including a majority of each of the four sides of the political tablemaking this US Public Policy Leaderboard (US-PPL) worthy idea. 

Congress’s approval rating is 21%, the Supreme Court’s is 40%, the media’s 27%, and the average score of the policies on the PolicyKeys™ US Public Policy Leaderboard (US-PPL) is 73%, with many above 80%—Politics 4.0 is already 2x to 3x better model of US political sentiment and direction than politics as usual.

Commentary

On this topic, POLI was a bit pollyanna in the initial nonpartisan rating. In POLI’s defense, it has more trust in American’s sense of fair play than our human editors. To POLI’s detriment, it appears that the 20 YES roles we overruled tend to see politics more from the First Law of Public Policy Formation: Those with short-term focus naturally protect their wages, jobs, status, profits, and wealth.

You can read all the tiebreaker details in our Tuesday article.

Wednesday’s
Strange Bedfellows

Politics make for odd couples. When you look at public policy through a role-based lens, it becomes clear why specific roles are for or against a solution for what’s best in their own self-interest, not just what the political parrots tell us.

Four Odd Couples 
IN-FAVOR

Caregivers &
Gun Owners

Rank and File Democrats &
Digital Republicans

USA Made &
Importers

Unions &
Entrepreneurs

Four Odd Couples AGAINST

Urban Part-time &
Founders

Democrat Doves &
Republican Hawks

Activists &

Rural Part-time &
Private Equity

We dish on each of the couples, how they met, their first fight, and why they kissed and made up in our Wednesday Odd Couples article.

Thursday’s
Political Digital Twin

On Thirsty Thursday, your twin quenches your thirst for the key reasons you may be for or against the solution of the week. All your roles are fighting for control over your mouth. Which will win and why?

Only you can decide, but your twin’s here to help. We use a random individual to demonstrate the Personal Public Policy Advisor Tool. We’ll have one you can personalize soon.

This week’s Random is a vibrant 40-year-old single parent pulling double duty as both a managerial force in a Corporate Lobby firm and an insightful Digital Republican blogger. Between high-stakes discussions about Renewables and E-Retail, Random faces the domestic challenges of raising kids, mastering the art of self-sacrifice by forgoing personal walks and reading sessions. Living in a scorching 110° State, home is a sanctuary filled with the soothing tones of instrumental music. Random takes on the role of nurturer, balancing an investment portfolio as skillfully as school homework. The family is diverse: an Urban Part-time restaurant worker, another sibling in Logistics, and one who is Non-working, while a C-Suite boss offers mentorship.

Switching gears at work, Random is often across the table from Underrepresented Democrats and Justice Independents, navigating the tough-love world of lobbying for Hospitals and Robotics. It’s a tightrope walk between social justice and corporate interests, requiring a keen understanding of how to give and take. This lesson in compromise and assertiveness isn’t lost at home, where Random instills the same values in the kids.

Yet, amid the chaos, Random finds moments for self-love. Late-night walks become therapeutic journeys set to a playlist of calming instrumental music. Despite missing out on some of life’s simpler joys, the happiness derived from a well-executed policy or a child’s innocent laughter is the ultimate reward.

Drumroll Please

Wow, a whole lot is going on inside Random’s head, huh? Each one of the roles is struggling to control the decision. When you add up the roles’ forecasted opinions, the score is…

YES 14– NO 3 = net +11 YES

The possible scores here are +17 to -17, so +11 indicates that Random is strongly leaning in favor of a Fraud-Free Guaranteed Vote, barring one or more of the NO reasons being way more important than all the YES reasons. Since these are made-up people, we’ll never know. 

But You Will

Are you making up your own mind or marching to the beat of a political parrot? While we finish testing our Political Digital Twin Tool for your Personal Public Policy Advisor Report, you can add your role’s scores from this week’s puzzle here and do your best impression of a public policy wonk. Amaze your family and friends with your super nonpartisan ways. 

You might be thinking, why would these individuals care about what their family and friends feel about this topic? Here’s the thing: there are four kinds of love: self-love, nurture, tough-love, and self-sacrifice. Are you only ever just one of those? What percent of each are you on your best day? Caring about what the people you love care about is what families and democratic republics do.

Friday’s
BOX SCORE

Conclusion: By the Numbers

POLI had support as nearly unanimous. Our editors were a bit less convinced. Nevertheless, we predict an 81% ±3 near consensus of roles in this country to support the Right to a Fraud Free Guaranteed Vote, including a majority of each of the four sides of the political tablemaking this US Public Policy Leaderboard (US-PPL) worthy idea. 

Congress’s approval rating is 21%, the Supreme Court’s is 40%, the media’s 27%, and the average score of the policies on the PolicyKeys™ US Public Policy Leaderboard (US-PPL) is 73%, with many above 80%—Politics 4.0 is already 2x to 3x better model of US political sentiment and direction than politics as usual.

Politics 4.0 Methodology

Our One-Page Narrative Tool, game board, and AI are based on a ground truth: There’s a time to save and a time to spend, a time for freedom and a time for laws. Where can we agree?

We search for solutions with the highest hypothetical nonpartisan rating. Something that would solve 80% of the problem with the simplest 20% solution.

Then we search the eight Information Walls for Key YES and NO Reasons, no cherry-picking.

The Key Reasons are sorted using our EMIT format, Emotions, Money, Information, and Timespan. We search for the key signals in the political noise.

Key Reasons can look similar so we edit for redundancy and look for errors, omissions, and innovations.

We look to filter out the GRIFTERS, Gaslighting, Red-herrings, Idolizing, False-dilemmas, Tunnel-vision, Exclusions, Reductions, and Straw-man arguments. 

Birds of a Feather AI

Once the Key Reasons are set, we prescore the puzzle using the Birds of a Feather AI for loose ties to beliefs, attitudes, values, and ethics. Over 16 million combinations are possible for the 128 roles. The game board starts balanced at zero, with an equal bias for change and the status quo.

We then prescore the puzzle using 56 arch-type roles that embody each of the 56 loose ties the best. This yields a general bias for change or status quo and reveal ties.

The editors review all 128 roles for specific reasons and overrule the AI where necessary. These are noted in the Tuesday Tiebreaker article.

Then, we score the puzzle on all four sides of the Political Table: eight Information Walls, sixteen Subcultural Windows, sixteen Bias Columns, and sixteen Influence Rows.

SAT9 AI

When the scoring is done, a second AI looks for inconsistencies using the SAT9 AI filter. This is 256 ‘supreme courts’ where each role is the chief justice in a presumed 5-4 and 4-5 bench. This generates a ± error margin.

This is all done on a One Page Narrative Tool (OPNT) that we gamified for role-playing at policykeys.com. We call our AI, POLI for Political Omnibus Leadership Initiative.

Imagine an America not paralyzed by partisan squawking. A Parrot-otopia oasis in a desert of division. Where the sounds of the silent super-majority drown out the droning of the hyper-partisan parrots.

We’ll be freed from the cages of entrenched ideology to fly higher in the big sky of American beliefs, attitudes, values, and ethics. To boldly go where no political parrot has gone before—rating solutions with a nonpartisan score.
