108. The really big problem here
is that this is NOT tinfoil -- not in the least. There are numerous prominent computer scientists from all around the country who have attested to the myriad problems with computerized voting. NO TINFOIL REQUIRED. SOME of them have examined the code and were horrified. Some of computer professionals right here at DU have nearly fainted upon hearing just a few of the simplest and most basic of FACTS, such as the fact that the database is Access, and obviously the whole thing uses Windows platform, about the last thing you want where security via modem is essential.

I could go on and on about the irrefutable FACTS which make these voting machines the WORST possible solution for a democracy. If you need some convincing, there are plenty of very mainstream, very upstanding, very professional, very irrefutable resources out there.
