E-Vote Tin-foilers Get Judges Approval for Tin Hats
Edited on Sat Oct-30-10 08:25 PM by BeFree
The state Republican Party and North Carolina elections officials may have worked out an agreement

Judge orders additional instruction for touchscreen voters (NC GOP suit)

********************

Why couldn't they just leave things be? Now the GOP has sued. And a Federal Judge is looking at our machines. This is bad, bad, news.

7. Yep. We've been caught with our fingers in the black boxes.
Blue handed. It took years, and we thought the court would never take a close look, but now, they looked!!

6. Um... I don't think so. This is good news, Votes should register correctly, regardless
of the person being voted for.

10. If there may be something wrong with the machines, why is that bad?
For years now, there have been hundreds of articles and countless threads about voting machines being bad. I don't see why this is a problem.

12. Bad now
Because this time the glitches were going our way. After millions for them we finally get a few and now the court catches the glitches. Bad luck, dude.

14. So it is OK if we encourage a system that cheats, but wrong for the Republicans...
to do it?

If the good guys cheat, that is OK?

15. See post #4
Besides, the good guys never cheat. If they did we'd cut them to shreds.

Bad guys? Not so much.
