      OWNING a car is considered–by them, and I’m not so sure they’re wrong–to be an act of personal vanity. RIDING in a car is not. I was about to quote the old saw “They’re crazy, not stupid,” but I think I’ll just stick with the “not stupid” part.
      I will say this: until the 1950’s, one in four Americans lived on a farm, mostly in cohesive, mutually-supporting communities similar to the way the Amish live today. I was fortunate enough to witness that America which once was… and I miss it dreadfully.

        Here’s another example of the “not stupid” business: many (not all, they’re not monolithic any more then treepers are) Amish communities ARE now allowed to use computers and the Internet. Why? Because it is almost physically impossible to comply with &(^% federal regulations (the income tax is only part of it) WITHOUT a computer!!!
        If that doesn’t tell you something about how invasive, pervasive, and persuasive the federal gub’mint has become, you must be hiding in a hole somewhere.
        Come to think of it, whereever di you find a hole that private? I may ask to join you if–god forbid–Trump doesn’t win! (LOL)

          I’m still fuming because I was denied a paper ballot to vote with. I spent almost a whole day in Texas, calling the Governors office, my local elections and the powers that be who support vote fraud, demand that every one who has a voting machines at their precinct must must that and not a paper ballot. I suspect they do this all over the country to promote vote fraud. I have read those voting machines are rigged and I believe I know too many people in Texas that have had a problem with them.

            I had same concern, issue and comment. Took a pic of my ballot confirmation, but it will do no good as there is no physical evidence of a vote. Also, there were at least 2 people in my local neighborhood (reported via the NextDoor app) that they did straight Repub ticket and the Trump vote was switched to Hillary. Personally, I took the time to look up each person and voted some Libertarian candidates and none of my votes were altered on the confirmation screen…now what happened afterwards is what scares the bejesus out of me as there is no way to confirm a recount without physical evidence if a recount is requested.

          Granted, they have to do it in a way that holds to their life of avoiding luxury as much as possible.

          But as you say here, the Amish are actually very keen on making sure they have just the right amount of technology to not fall too far behind in current news.


      • I don’t miss it since I live in one of those communities. What a pleasure after almost 30 years in NOVA!!!!


    • Yes mouse they can. My mom and dad drive them here in Colorado.

      Amish are kind of weird in that they cannot actively interact with modern technology in most cases but can benefit from it…..some communities even allow phones (landlines) now but they are normally located at the edge of the property and often shared with neighbors

    I don’t live in PA, but this gives me a great idea. We have a rather large community of Amish folks in our area, and we have forged working relationships with them. Upon getting to know them and gaining their trust, we have found that they are much more aware of what’s going on in our nation than we ever dreamed of. We will reach out to them about providing rides to polling places on election day.

    Sending this out to contacts through several of the Central PA counties, Lancaster, Lebanon, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, York, etc. The Trump rally Friday is here in Hershey in the ice hockey arena, which holds 10,500, plus you will have the floor space. If anyone in the immediate area needs signs, reply back. MAGA !!!

    I am a Western Pa resident that is familiar with the Amish community. We have a strong population of Amish in New Wilmington, Pa. My family makes yearly trips to the Lancaster, Pa area as well (go if you have never been). These are great, hardworking people that could make the difference in a state like Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, I work and will be working on behalf of the Republican candidate for State Rep. in my district on Election Day, but I implore anyone who is able to help get the Amish community to the polls.

    Why don’t they do absentee ballots?


    • Marc says:

      PA has strict requirements on who can vote absentee by mail and there’s no early voting in Pennsylvania either so in person on election day is required. I think that’s best anyway as there’s less of an issue or time to commit voter fraud. Request a paper ballot if they use machines at your local polling place.

    Is therea federal law requiring states to provide paper ballots, if they are requested?


    • Article 1 of the US Constitution gives the states the responsibility of conducting elections for representation to federal government offices. It’s up to your state’s legislature. That’s why we have such a variety of ID laws, and so many different systems for tabulation and recording.

      I’m with you all on the comparative safety of paper ballots though. I live where it’s ALL vote-by-mail only. We have to sign our ballots, and provide a contact phone # in case of problems. Registration is in-person, and those forms are compared to the ballot signatures before certifying a result.

    I will pass this along and try to get the day off. Lancaster is about 1 hour from me and I know allot of people who live out that way. Trump is going to be in Hershey PA tomorrow night. We may be able to get a hold of the campaign HQ and get some people out there. I will call the Malvern HQ and ask them. Will keep you posted. The Amish have Billboards up and signs everywhere. They know the stakes are high. Hillary would love to get her hands on their land.
