55. who said "inevitable"?
Technological evolution doesn't Just Happen, and the terms on which new technology is adopted don't just happen, either. That was true for television as well.

However, you do seem to think that electronic voting is -- not to put too fine a point on it -- a Republican (dominionist?) plot. That's a stretch. If Republicans or dominionists or whoever had carefully thought out and executed a plan to steal elections through electronic voting, I like to think that they would have gone to some effort to plug security holes that anyone can exploit. The Hursti hack is nonpartisan. All the other known hacks -- and there are oodles -- are nonpartisan as well. There may be additional, partisan hacks, but I see no reason to assume it.

It's tendentious to say that "Bush" created the EAC; as far as I can tell, it's tendentious to say that Davidson was trained by ES&S or by Diebold, and you don't seem interested in learning any more about that. In this thread, you're basically functioning as a loose cannon.

As far as I can tell, you have no idea whether the Election Center is bipartisan and no clue how to figure it out. But it's irrelevant. No one here is invested in saying nice things about the Election Center. And you don't appear really to know much about the Election Center except that you're agin it, so it doesn't matter much what you stand by, firmly. It can be useful to take sides, but it doesn't add much substance.
