145. Obviousness
I became pretty paranoid when I saw democrat officials all over the country eagerly sign on to this easily tampered with voting system. I mean, what could go wrong? How dumb can you be......or is there more to it?

It has been proven time and again that anyone with the equipment and know how can easily tamper with the vote.

People always seem to forget the truism uttered by a man who knew of what he spoke, old Joe Stalin,who said that the power was not with the people who voted but rather with the people who counted those votes.

We need paper ballots, with strict above board verifiable custody afterward, and public counting witnessed by the contestants and also by neutral observers.

Just starting with the election of 2000, if this system had been in place, how different things would have been be in 2011...assuming Big Al lived out his tenure.
