No Evidence of Voting Machine Altering Elections
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Wed Jul-20-11 10:39 AM by BeFree
People get all worked up over the fact that 80% of America's votes are counted in private by one company.

So what? They are just part of our capitalist system and deserve a profit!

And they are upset because the machines used to count votes are known to make monumental errors, are prone to being "listened too", and are made overseas.

So what? They count faster and to fix mistakes you just click, click and go back.....

These people keep pointing out that many computer experts claim it is NOT a good idea to use computers to count votes. The experts say the machines are too insecure. Then they go on to say that several experts have easily hacked voting machines and altered votes and then closed the program leaving no trail of their actions.

So what? These are experts and people working at the companies that program the machines are experts too, and they wouldn't steal any votes!!

Besides, it's not like the vote really means much. And all politicians are the same. But one thing we can count on is: politicians would never allow crooks to alter elections.

No worries, mate!
