First, if you want to tamper with paper ballots you have to do it one at a time, with members of both major parties watching.
That is different from tampering with voting machines.
Than, this thread did not start out that way, the guy was just immediately dismissed because he was presented on a left wing website, which is just plain partisan douchebaggery.
If there is one question however that goes far beyond partisan politics it is the democratic precess itself and the whistle blower is a republican.
I know that because he himself says so and it is the title of the thread which kind of gave it away for me.
The whole push to get electronic voting machines was caused by the hanging, dangling, dimpled chadded Florida ballot count. Everyone (read that whiny, little, bitch-assed democrats) screamed for the electronic shit.
And the dipshit was dismissed not just because of where the interview was found, but that the first words out of his mouth were that he had never even seen one of the machines in question.
SO we have an issue that was ultimately instigated by left-wing whining, and now a left-wing site is parading some nut fob who has never even seen the fucking machine as their star witness in their latest “right wing conspiracy”.
All the while the right loses control of the Senate, and gives up seats in the house. I know the republicans are the DC version of monkeys fucking a football, but even they can’t fuck shit up so bad that they cede power to the left by messing with the voting machines.
I wholeheartedly agree with almost your whole post, but you are not really arguing that the machines were a good idea because the Democrats wanted them?
So government fucked up and wasted tons of money.
Must you suffer for it through the next century because of it?
No. I am not saying that. I am saying that the dipshits on the left are whining because of a problem that their previous whining caused. They blame republicans, or the vast right wing conspiracy for the inaccuracies, and parade a fucking republican around as if it gives their position some credibility. They are spoiled little fucks.
I think the machines were a stupid idea from the get go.
But because of the bureaucratic black hole we have, you cannot undo goat screws nearly as fast as they can be created.
Why is it electronic ballot boxes are an issue in even number years? Seems to me that a certain group is just laying the groundwork for a huge-assed bitch session come the middle of November.
I’m with you guys on the electronic voting. The paper ballots were fine. I’m just tired of the endless parade of conspiracies. You know … karl Rove hacking the network while Cheney holds the laptop.
The democrats have a century’s worth of expertise on cheating with paper ballots in the South and in Chicago … but the potential with the digital is worse. It’s largely agreed that Daley threw the election to Kennedy in Cook County. But it’s very, very rare that that kind of stuff can effect a vote in a country with 300,000,000.
What’s possibly worse than the Diebold machines is all the motor voter laws, and the change from election day to election month. Frankly … most of the changes they’re making in terms of registration and voting are horrible.
