13. Hear, hear!
My gut tells me that there is something seriously wrong with the New Hampshire results. Why is is so inconceivable that the people that control the counting of the ballots via DIEBOLD machines might have a vested interest in changing the primary results for both Democrats AND Republicans so that they get their desired outcome (WHATEVER that may be and for WHATEVER reason!!)

If everything is on the up and up, why can't we have proof of it? I, for one, do not have any faith whatsoever in the outcome of any future elections that are not open and transparent to the public. This means that I don't have faith in most of the primary results, and I absolutely do not have faith in the upcoming presidential results. My God, voting is our most fundamental right and we're not allowed to see the results because someone else (and not an impartial "someone else" either) is in control of it??? Give me a break!!!

What's it going to come down to? Hoards of citizens standing outside polling booths, writing down the vote of the people voting and tallying it up ourselves later to make sure we aren't cheated of our most basic right? This makes me sick!
