28. Just like healthcare we are doing this wrong

Just like with healthcare, in spite of numerous examples of how to do it right, we've chosen to do it the wrong way.

The reason for that? Are we just populated by stupid people? Is running elections the worst possible way an intrinsic part of the American way? Or might it be that doing it the way we do it gives someone or something an overwhelming advantage.

We've all been asking ourselves for years why do people keep voting against their own interests? What if that hasn't really been happening?

If you poll people on individual Republican positions they are against most of them.

Could it be that a whole series of elections have simply been stolen. Bush v Gore? We know that one was stolen. But what about Bush v Kerry? There was some really weird shit that happened in Ohio where a nakedly partisan Secretary of State ruled the entire voting aparatus.

What if that same party has moved on from just making sure that there aren't enough voting machines to actually just installing vote changing malware onto key state tabulator machines. This would not even require access via the internet.

The idea of conducting our elections with proprietary software from for profit companies that is unauditable is insane. It has been going on for decades. It has to change but most likely won't. Our rulers don't want it to change.
