16. Cabal?
Edited on Wed Oct-20-10 08:01 PM by Bill Bored
The cabal theory is that there is a Christian reconstructionist movement that does not believe in representative democracy. They have invested in the e-vote counting industry for the purpose of controlling the vote to advance their agenda without anyone being the wiser. I don't think it's necessary for there to be a religious (or fake religious) component to this, but be that as it may, how far fetched is this theory given some of what we've seen of this movement in other areas?

And if someone did want to control the vote, what would be better than to switch it at the source using concealed software-driven voting systems "accidentally" designed to make that possible?

If you look at the way a lever voting machine is constructed (yeah -- without a paper trail), it's obvious that such vote-switching exploits are not possible. So why do away with that, and substitute vote-switching computers that will take more resources and expertise than are currently available to effectively police?

I'm not claiming there is a vast conspiracy either. But if there were, I can't think of a better way to go about controlling the vote than the status quo -- and that includes mostly unaudited ballot scanners. Can you?
