54. Here are his words:
Meanwhile, the conspiracy that is computer voting is the same conspiracy that brought us any other technological evolution. Doesn't make it OK. But it's as much a dark force as the one that brought TV into the home. The "force" that brought tv into the home was technological evolution. The "force" that brought electronic voting to the US, and now plans to sell it all around the world IS a very dark one.
It is not inevitable, simply a modernization. What is going on here is much much more than that. conspiracy, ok. not the word I would use, but an adequate word to describe the events of the past 20 years vis a vis elections. It was quite well thought and out and executed. And even when our side is in power, goes unquestioned.

The thing is that elections are how we exercise democracy. They are supposed to represent the people's voice. Our votes are counted, scanned, and tabulated by ES&S. with a federal mandate created by Bush. and oversight....... with oversight provided by people trained by ES&S. The Election Center is not a bipartisan non profit striving for democracy. The ELEction Center's interests are in privatizing elections, and making them more and more electronic, which makes them less and less verifiable, and easier and easier to steal.
I stand by that. firmly.
