88. Frankly, I believe unintentional discrepancies would absolutely pale
into insignificance, so the ingredient of uncertainty is not in any way problematic, in my view.

However, that, of course, in no wise diminishes the absolutely pivotal requirement of transparency. Without total transparency, it becomes quite literally (and I know that term tends to be used figuratively) a charade. 'Cep we don't have to guess what uproarous entertainment the poor thespians who enter the polling booths are unwittingly staging, for the continuing delight of their Neocon masters.

Staying away from the elections, on the other hand would be even worse, wouldn't it? There is hope that one day they will all be brought to book and the system rectified. But for the present, it's Hobson's choice.
