Today's Voting Machines Story

-- by Dave Johnson

Bet on a Bet but Not on a Ballot,

It's easier to rig an electronic voting machine than a Las Vegas slot machine, says University of Pennsylvania visiting professor Steve Freeman.

That's because Vegas slots are better monitored and regulated than America's voting machines, Freeman writes in a book out in July that argues, among other things, that President Bush may owe his last win to an unfair vote count.

If you have voting machines that don't offer any way to PROVE who people voted for, it is a recipe for civil chaos. FIX THIS!

No, don't fix it. Just let me run the machines. Then we'll see how much the repugs (and the dems for that matter) like machines. PLEASE don't fix it.

I guess this shows that you don't mess with the Nevada Gaming Commision.

I have posted a comprehensive outline on how to reform the Federal Election system and level the field for campaigns while mostly eliminating voting and vote counting fraud. Seriously, nothing could be more important to our republic, so check it out at
