12. Many questions have been brought up about why aren't the
candidates speaking up about this. My question is, why isn't Howard Dean speaking up and demanding these machines be shut down until there is a way to audit. This is such a huge issue one has to wonder why ALL THREE PARTIES are not unified on this front and join in ensuring the integrity of the election process, our vote.

This is something every citizen would support.

This absolutely just stinks, because you know there's going to be an outcry after this election. There is just too much that has been proven for any of us to have one shred of belief in the system. There are a slew of things that could be done to win back our confidence and ensure every vote is legitmate.
