And the key stumbling block in the elections is the use of easily hacked and hackable voting machines and computer systems that are even easier to hack. There is overwhelming evidence (almost entirely statistical evidence since no state, no politicians, no media reporter, NOBODY seems interested in dealing with the elephant in the room) that the results of elections are being shifted in secret by rigging, hacking, maliciously programming, or otherwise messing with the final vote tallies as Rove did in 04 in OH and as somebody else will probably do in OH again and and in many other places again and again until people decide that an UNVERIFIED election is inherently AN ILLEGAL AND UNDEMOCRATIC ELECTION.

The other problems with voter suppression or changing venues or limiting the number of voting machines or changing the party affiliation illegally by using computer hacking for the most part or any of the other multitude of illegal and fraudulent methods for turning the final count in the favor of one candidate or another -- these problems are equally or even (in this particular primary) maybe more important in shifting the vote. And all of these things will have to be addressed.

But the festering infection that is the source of it all is the use of the computer systems to manipulate and alter election results.
