It now appears that Ohio's voting machine count can be manipulated using only a PDA and a magnet.

A study conducted over a two-month period this year found that Ohio's voting systems are seriously flawed. An 86-page report released by Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner says, "The findings in this study indicate that the computer-based voting systems in use in Ohio do not meet computer industry security standards, and are susceptible to breaches of security that may jeopardize the integrity of the voting process."

Everyone treats these stories like they are a bad thing.
Think of it as a new form of enfranchisement.
Originally the person with most swords won.
Then the person who bought the most voters
Then the person who bought the most advertising space.

Now it's the person who equipped with a screwdriver and a serial cable can hack fastest.
Is there any reason to believe that this won't produce better results?

The poll numbers for Congress and GWB say the public is at an all time disenfranchisement low.

GWB and his gang stole two general elections, this is not progress.

Yes, we should demand better!!!!

But those elections were stolen after the vote, the old fashioned way.

When you have electronic voting machines you will see a large rise in voter turnout -
I'm guessing the next election will be won by someone form google with a turnout of 2^32
