15. "Anything I don't understand or can't see on my own...I shouldn't believe?"
Edited on Mon May-16-11 12:20 AM by Bill Bored
Well not ANYTHING. But you raise a good point here, so see if you agree with this:

When it comes to elections, "anything I don't understand or can't see on my own, can't figure out on my own, I shouldn't believe."

If that makes sense to you, I think it should apply to knowing the election was unfair as well as knowing it was fair. We should NOT have to take anyone's word in either case. Elections are NOT supposed to be battles of experts. They are supposed to be true at face value. Transparent. Observable.

I would no more trust Charmin's exit polls than I would an electronic voting system. And neither should you.
