2. Dismissing all concerns about remotely accessible voting machines
as the exclusive province of 'conspiracy theorists' is mean spirited and fallacious ...

FACT: There are groups of individuals that DO have long term plans for dominating the political sphere .... Hell WE do here as well ... To deny such groups exist is a ridiculous assertion - This is the goal of every political party - To gain power and hold it for as long as possible ...

FACT: Believe it or not, there are people who will behave without ethics to promote their own agenda .... The jails are full of them ....

FACT: The voting machines in use today have been PROVEN to be amenable to those who would wish to commit fraud, if given a chance to do so ...

FACT: The integrity of the vote depends on close monitoring of access - This aspect requires POSITIVE evidence that access has not been compromised .... Something that is rarely provided ...

Hence, it is perfectly rational for someone to question the validity of elections performed without proof of integrity .... That concern is completely warranted ...

Your comment seems more of an abusive ad hominem than a statement of fact ....
