2. The example you give of 2000 goes to prove that Repubs will do anything they can to win,
legal or illegal -- which just underlines the importance of having a way to verify the results of every election in every precinct. The EVMs as presently used offer the easiest, safest, most undetectable means of cheating yet devised. Many if not most of the active Repubs are cheaters and criminals already, the hard core of them. Finding a way to cheat w/o the slightest fear of being caught is a veritable gold mine for them. Witness SC, where the Repubs, some group therein anyway, just did whatever they damn well pleased no matter how ridiculously obvious the scam and as you point out nobody gave a damn about fairness or about preserving democracy.
