  •  There is no such thing as a perfect system. (0+ / 0-)

    But fraud involving machines can be centralized -- meaning that it can be completed over broad areas with complicity from just a few people.

    Fraud involving paper requires you to be where the paper is -- it won't affect people in the next township or the next state.

    Let us discard all this quibbling about this man or the other man, this race or that race...Let us unite as one people declaring that all men are created equal

      Electronic voting machines allow a small group of criminals (mostly in Republican-owned voting machine companies) to subvert a large portion of state and national voting systems. Evidence indicates that has been happening for at least the last decade.

      Voting on paper, while still somewhat vulnerable, leaves tangible evidence of your vote, which requires a much larger conspiracy to subvert, which in turn is harder to hide. However, as long as the voting apparatus is in the hands of the Republican party, the system will be subverted in various ways that all help suppress the output of Democratic votes. It is the final factor in Karl Rove's "permanent Republican majority" that must be foiled with tireless vigilance and constant legal pressure.

      Reinstate the Fairness Doctrine!
