176. You're Right!..."This is way bigger than Obama!"
"Explorer"?..."Chrome"?....I am barely able to post here & on my blogs, and barely able to write e-mails....I'm still a Beginner here on this computer & can only afford crappy dial-up, so I'm unable to even watch videos longer than 1 minute....

I read your other posts & I now agree with all you say...It IS way bigger than Obama.

I can't believe how naive I was to think that only the Repubs wanted DRE's with no's the Dems too.

Brad Friedman straightened me out in a long response to an e-mail I sent him....
He told me "even the
Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails", or VPATs, added to the Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) machines still do not make them any more verifiable..
A DRE with a VPAT is still a 100% unverifiable voting system."

He also told me that many Dems in Congress do not want verifiable DREs, including Rush Holt "who once told me he'd be happy if everybody in the country voted on unverifiable touch-screen systems." ...(and I thought Holt was one of the "good guys")

After spending a couple of hours in the DU Election Reform forum, I found some very disturbing information about the unverifiable DREs;.... but I also found a possible "temporary fix",... it's the last link that I list in Post # 172.,(HON,I went to DU Election Reform forum etc)
"Microsoft Researchers Propose Using Crypto-Technique As Temporary Band-Aid For Making E-Machines Secure"

Too bad we can't just throw out all the damn touch-screen & optical scan voting machines & bring back the good old mechanical voting machines where you pull down the levers,.... remember them?
