2. AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY!
Put the public back into the vote counting system!

Put THE LIGHT OF DAY back into the vote counting system!

What we have now--corporate run vote counting, using 'TRADE SECRET,' PROPRIETARY programming code, with virtually no audit/recount controls (and in half the states, NO AUDIT AT ALL), with ONE COMPANY, with far rightwing connections that would make your hair stand on end, now MONOPOLIZING the system (ES&S, which just bought out Diebold)--is...

NUTS!
INSANE!
EGREGIOUSLY ANTI-DEMOCRATIC!
WRONG!
EVIL!
UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
ROVIAN!
SICK!
PERVERSE!
THE **NUMBER ONE** PROBLEM IN OUR COUNTRY!

and...

....still fixable, believe it or not, since control over voting systems still resides at the state/local level, where ordinary citizens and voters still have some potential influence--but it will take a BIG citizens movement to fix it.
