7. Yes, sometimes I think that the only reason we even hold elections is how much

Audience participation that the networks get during the Primary and election seasons.

Some guy called C Span about six months ago and stated that there is so little difference between the two Big Money Parties that maybe we should forget about elections, and Brian Lamb hustled to get him off the air like the caller'd said that Brian's Mom was so fat her house had broken in two.

The difference between the football game rankings and this issue, though, is that the sports stadium scoreboards are not hackable - and the voting technology we are forced to use is.

Plus if someone did hack the score, by the end of the game, the fans who saw the winning team lose would storm the field and tear the referrees apart.

In America, should we decide to storm the field, we would be facing the new anti-mob technology - one piece of which is an armored vehicle that can shoot like 500,000 bullets a minute.
