I don't understand why Pelosi and the dems didn't tackle this problem full on. We've still got people waiting for 8 hours in voting lines. And more to the point, people NOT waiting. Not voting. Which is what it's all about.
I didn't really understand it before. I knew that the machines were hackable (and that Kerry, not Bush, won 2004). But I didn't get that just having the damn things, even if they work perfectly, severely limits the number of people who can cast a ballot at any given time.
Canada uses paper ballots, #2 pencils and cardboard privacy screens. They have their results in by 11pm.
We need to BAN all voting machines and adopt Canada's system.
