1. Any resistance to complete auditability
is inherently suspect in an open democracy.

"Proprietary code", "intellectual property" are important rights. Vital, in fact, to an economy whose prime driver is often creativity.

But, elections are no place for this. We don't sell sponsorships to elections, or guarantee a profit to private contractor for them...oh....shoot...Sorry, there is a profit motive here, but HEY, adding the profit motive to the voting process can only make it better, right? USA! USA!

Still, can't this be like library cards? Who better to watch the votes than librarians?
