Rigging the Vote

A post I missed about the New Zealand reporter who discovered that the Diebold “black box” voting machines being pushed in so many jurisdictions are easy to hack and change vote totals.

I’ve been collecting links on this issue for some time now. I’m always alarmed by the reaction of conservatives to the information, as if rigging a vote is nothing unusual. Why worry?

I never was one to excuse such offenses especially when committed by a party or candidate I have supported. I hold the people I vote for to a much higher standard.

If this new system is fine-tuned, the people who support these deceptive practices could forever be the ‘majority’ because the ‘machine’ says it’s so.

So I worry.
