179. Wow! I really have a problem with this.
If my job was making voting machines for the American people I would most likely bend over backwards to not be a partisan. I don't mean just not give the appearance of being partisan, which I also think is wrong.

If the party in power wanted one type of voting machine and the other party wanted something else, I would try to get to the bottom of it. I know I would. I would have a duty (patriotic duty even) to do so.

My ethical standards are not really that high. Believe me. I guess we can agree to disagree.

I keep saying no one would buy this crap for voting and you counter "well, people did buy them". It's like me saying that someone who makes couterfit prescription drugs is a criminal. No one would buy them. And the rebuttal is "well people did buy them so he can't be a criminal". It is exactly the same argument.

Why were these pieces of crap built in the first place? Because they knew the fix was in and they could get away with it. Honestly, until I hear some other plausible explanation of why someone would manufacture this crap.
