18. I did address your point.
Edited on Mon Feb-23-09 09:27 AM by Wilms
I wrote, "You look at the levers you flipped". I meant it. That there is no lasting record of your "individual" vote after that point is beside the point in a system as robust as the levers. In a secret ballot system, that's ok. In fact, the illusion of said record gets even more obvious when you consider verification of individual ballots from Marking Devices. (I know. I know. We're all so special. We want a record of our personnel little vote because since the 1970's I'm soooo special as an individual, and an ATM gives me a receipt.)

If the machines in FL2000 or in OH2004 "didn't count it, there is no way I will ever get my vote back", either. Take your veri-fiable vote and shove it where it came from and goes to...which is nowhere.

And since DREs and Optical Scams have been proven foolish, your point is academic. Are you arguing for HCPB??? Why not, Mr. Transparency Argument??? :shrug:

You don't understand why people call levers "transparent" because you refuse too. Have you examined a lever machine? Have you stuck your head inside a microprocessor? Would you consider pulling it out of the sand?



You're making an argument because you think you can. I'll get you your very own special individual personal gold star for debate class.

Now, please take your seat.
