    The British government was considered tyrannical by the colonists, not because it past laws they didn't like, but they had no representation in Parliament.  They were powerless to change the laws without resorting to violence.  The only reason US citizens would be justified in taking up arms would be if their right to vote was restricted or if the elections were fraudulent.  But, of course, restricting the franchise or rigged elections don't happen in the US.

      when you can just hack the electronic voting machines?

      Paper ballots overseen, guarded and counted by representatives of both parties are largely secure. So why replace them with computerized voting?

       Who the hell can know what is going on in an electronic box.  Our banks have had millions stolen from them-- and just try connecting to the Internet without a firewall and anti-virus software.
