The mood was joyous in the months before and the months after the election of 2008 in Coatesville, PA.
A black man was the candidate for president.
Although the mood was joyous, a man standing outside of Coatesville’s First Ward, hired by Republican State Rep. Tim Hennessey to pass out his election handbills was inebriated and pushing Hennessey’s material onto the chests of voters.
On Election Day this year, no matter who you are for or against the mood is fear.
Poll watcher is a legal term. Anybody can stand outside of a polling place.
“CLEVELAND, Ohio — An order released Friday afternoon by a federal judge in Cleveland overseeing a voter-intimidation lawsuit brought against Donald Trump and Republicans reiterates that people must obey Ohio's law when going to polling places.”
In Pennsylvania a “poll watcher” is a legal term for someone certified by a County or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a “poll watcher”. The “poll watcher” is inside of the polling place with a view of everything happening inside the polling place.
“I will be there to render assistance to my fellowcountrymen, and prevent them from being disarmed, and I will fight and I will kill and I may die in the process,' said Mr Hill, who founded the militia several years ago."

"A movement made up of sheriffs claiming to be the highest law enforcement authority in the country is growing nationwide as it exploits hot-button issues such as gun control to encourage sheriffs to defy federal laws they don’t like, according to the Summer 2016 issue of the SPLC’s Intelligence Report, released today.
The cover story, “Line in the Sand,” details the growth of this radical ideology since 2009. The movement, formed around an organization called the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), is a phenomenon rarely, if ever, seen in the United States – a concerted, long-term effort to recruit law enforcement officers into the antigovernment “Patriot” movement."
"The following summer armed militiamen rushed to defend Oregon gold miners who were in dispute with the government. They were backed by Oath Keepers, a group of tactically trained former military and police officers.
For six weeks they turned the hills surrounding the mine into a patrol base. They were ready for war. These events may have happened far from your community but no area of the country is immune."
