Response to porphyrian (Reply #21)

22. What I don't buy is the "paper trails are expensive" argument. That's bullshit.

 

The majority of ES&S machines were originally Diebold boxes. A large portion of ATM and POS machines are Diebold. There's no paper trail on voting machines, but EVERY ATM and POS machine (including gas pumps) keeps a physical scrolling trail as well as a consumer receipt. Most of those get tossed out. You can't convince me that adding the same redundant (and serialized) paper trail to a voting machine is going to cost that much.

In a recount, the only thing the damn machines will do is spit out the first rigged number they spit out the first time. There IS no "recount". And yes, Diebold, PES, and ES&S are all Republican-run companies. Color me surprised.
