Did Anonymous really Save-the-Vote in Ohio? .... REALLY??? [View all]

I don't care.
In the grand scheme of things, whether or not Anonymous stepped in at the last minute and prevented Rove and his minions from Hacking-the-Vote doesn't really matter.

Despite the internecine battles currently revolving around this issue on DU,
we will NEVER really know whether or not Anonymous Saved-the-Vote in Ohio,
and THAT is of the utmost importance.

We do NOT have the means to determine whether the vote was hacked or unhacked!
THAT should scare the pants off of everybody, not just on DU, but across the nation.
Let me repeat:
We do NOT have the means to determine whether the vote was hacked or unhacked!

The important fact is that elections in the United States have been removed from the hands of The People and given to private For Profit corporations. These corporations use secret, proprietary software to log, count, tally, and report how YOU voted. If you, as a private citizen, ask to examine the computers or software that counted the votes,
you will be told, "Sorry. That is a secret."

The most important of our Civil Responsibilities is no longer accountable to The People, but to a board of directors.
There is NO avenue by which The People can verify the vote.
We are told that we must take-the-Word of Private For Profit Corporations that our vote was counted fairly.

Elections in Venezuela, Iraq, and most 3rd World Countries are MORE Transparent and Verifiable than what passes for elections in the USA,
and THAT is what is important.

Whether Anonymous actually Saved-the-Vote in Ohio or not doesn't matter to me.
What matters is that because of his claim, people ARE talking about how insecure our elections really are.

Over 92% of the American People support Transparent, Verifiable elections.

WHY must we continue to have Secret Vote Counting and Unverifiable "Privatized" Elections?

Thank You, Anonymous, for helping to make public how ridiculously opaque and unverifiable our privatized elections really are!
