128. Change We Can Believe In - Voting.
We need to use paper ballots followed by strict custody control of those ballots. They then need to be counted publicly/transparently with multiple official witnesses; representatives of each candidate and an impartial observer with no dog in the hunt, maybe from Canada or whatever.

It's been proven over and over that machines/computers can be tampered with all along the trail including during voting. There have been some shady custody hanky panky as well.

I am 99% sure that the 2004 Bush/ Kerry race was flipped as well as the Demint/Cleland senate race.

We're supposed to be a shining example of democracy yet among other things our voting processes are like a 3rd world dictatorship.

Again, old Joe Stalin was an evil SOB but he wasn't dumb, he was dead on about the power being with the people who count the votes rather than with those voting.
