Not getting rid of them

The voting machines, that is.

A Fulton County Superior Court judge on Monday tossed out an attempt to ban the Diebold electronic voting machines used in Georgia elections.

Seems like there is no reason to get rid of them, but we probably need to redouble efforts to ensure vote integrity.

Should we have the paper ballot debate again?

    Fools.

    All fools.

    Complete fools.

    This is the 21st century for crying out loud.

    Paper ballot?

    How ignorant this must sound to those hip with the future.

    YouTube ballot, now that’s the ticket.

    You vote.

    You post it on YouTube.

    Red State Update will be secured to tally the votes.

    Anything else need be said?

    Ain’t ya glad you live in a Free Country?

    Computerized voting (as we have it today) is a perfect example of corporate fascism. Outsourcing this to a private company with proprietary software that can be hacked? Why all the secrecy? Why all the computer crashes and long lines. This stuff is rotten to the core.

    Computerized voting just doesn’t leave behind any material evidence that can be referenced in the event of a malfunction. My vote consists of a mere magnetic charge inside an electronic device.

    Even in the 21st century, we need to be able to verify an election in the event of any possible electronic malfunction.

  4. It a shame that we can’t even get the courts to protect the citizens against potential election fraud, just an auditable receipt to be placed in a locked ballot box in case a recount is warranted is not asking too much.

    If you ever check this stuff out soon you’ll be neck deep in fraud and corruption. And it’s not just the machines, it’s the people too. As someone who voted for Buchanan for president, I learned BEFORE computerized voting that the whole thing stinks to high hell!
