111.  the implications of Republican electronic warfare
Edited on Thu Nov-04-04 10:01 PM by teryang
Crispin is right. Tab Julius is right also. The other commentaries about how stupid people are and the cultural fundie bullshit are true but the main issue, the lack of legitimacy in rigged elections is what this is all about.

Why people would accept electronic voting, voting with electrons is beyond me. Electronic warfare has matured into a very sophisticated form of warfare. Its been around for over 60 years. Recording votes by electron and reporting vote tabulations by modem is insane! There is a fundamental paradox in electronic voting that is insurmountable. It was published on theBell.com for months before the electronic voting remedy (sic) to the Florida debacle in 2000 was proposed. There is a fundamental conflict between voter identity and vote secrecy and the ability to audit or recount. These two constitutional parameters cannot and will not be satisfied by BBV. Current legislators, party leadership, and judges ignore the paradox. This means that democracy is lost because the voting franchise is now owned by the corporate masters of the electronic spectrum. The meaningless and totally illegal recount rules put out by the Florida secretary state are symptomatic of the unconstitutionality of these past two election cycles.

The last sickening operational indicator of electronic warfare being used on American voting processes is that the so called Republican evoting corporations are actually controlled by defense contractors. Although not one of those defense contractors, Battelle Memorial Inc., a biowarfare defense contractor sabotaged the media consortium VNS exit polling organization in election 2002. It barely received a comment in the mainstream media when it was announced the night of the election. No exit polling! What a coinkidink! ( BMI also makes, organizes and maintains mobile units suitable for distributing and containing anthrax at any location. )

Remember that there is a litigation and judicial strategy to ban inauditable electronic voting. I proposed it right after the 2000 debacle when evoting was wrongly proposed as a remedy for Florida 2000. It will cost tens of millions and take years to implement. One has to conclude that the Democratic Party leadership just doesn't give a shit.
