Just Thinking Out Loud about Vote Counting and the INTERNET
if it wasn't for the INTERNET the voting machine companies by now, Would have convinced us that we dont need machines at all. If we say the candidates name out loud three times on election day that they will telepathically record our votes. Some would of paid them to do that. :rofl:

The Houdini type election of the past props and all. Just go behind that curtain push them levers, and don't worry about it just go home and watch the ten o'clock news for the election results. :rofl:





The Copperfield type elections





How do Voting Machines Work? They don't, machines can't vote :rofl:

:)

So why are the machines there? To put the counting of the ballots or in the case of touch screens and levers, ballot less counting into the hands of a FEW. And we allow this.

Voting machines Mechanical or Electronic are an ILLUSION.


Joseph Stalin quote
It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.


Hand Count E'm If You Got E'm. :)

1. Please answer , which paperless mechanical/electronic voting is better
and wouldn't paper ballots that everyone can count, see, and witness at the polling place feel more American?

Just asking.
