 The Coalition for Visible Ballots
|“||We at the Coalition for Visible Ballots believe that the only way to restore fair and honest elections to our country is to set aside ALL machines, including electronic of any type, touch screen, optical scan counters--and use PAPER BALLOTS, HAND-COUNTED IN PUBLIC VIEW.||”|
 Freedom Force International
In 2002, Griffin founded Freedom Force International, an organization with members in countries across the world. Freedom Force International has an unusual membership fee structure: there are dues-paying members and non-dues-paying members. Mr. Griffin believes that such an organization should not require members to pay dues. In order to fund operations, however, certain bonuses are awarded to members who elect to pay dues. Until recently, the minimum monthly membership due was based on one ounce of silver.
