13. This was a legendary project that had a great run
And "defunct" doesn't mean dead, it means "currently on hiatus."

People on this thread who have a shared sense of community through this board, hopefully you think of me as part of the group. To whatever extent this is true, I believe you will all consider this utterly consistent and the natural extension of what I've always done. This is the beginning of my latest campaign...

Paperless electronic voting +
Corporate vote counting guarded as proprietary secrets +
Nonsensical results such as negative vote totals =

"Election" results are UNPROVABLE.

Tell the media not to report as fact what can't even be proven and what hasn't been independently verified. The media should be the greatest advocates of hand counting paper ballots because this method of counting allows media greatest access to observing and documenting the process, affording their reporting the greatest credibility. Transparent coverage of a transparent counting process would create a basis for confidence in the reported results where none currently exists.
