2. Oh, but lever machines aren't "AUDITABLE!" Can't have THAT!
Edited on Tue Nov-23-10 02:12 AM by Bill Bored
I'd much rather spend millions on "auditable" machines that we can't afford to audit, wouldn't you?

That way we can say our elections are "100% auditable!" In fact, they're so auditable, we don't even have to think about auditing them! Just say they're "auditable," that the ballots will be "available" for an audit or recount, that the 3% "audit" found "no discrepancies," and that there's a "rigorous certification process" for the "auditable" machines that ensures that their full "auditability" will be fully "available" in the event it's needed.

Then blame the whole thing on the federal government because they passed HAVA and after all, we took the money, so we had to buy the "auditable" machines because no one just gives back money they decide not to use, even if it costs less to give it back than to use it.

There's more and at some point there might be some light at the end of this tunnel. No point speculating about that on this thread though. :patriot:
