I am very relieved that all the voting machines are fixed!!! There has not been one complaint of voter fraud. I think we are good to go for the next election in 2008!!!

We need a new government program for the thousands of lawyers who were in waiting to fight the election results. The loss of income from this should qualify them for food stamps at least.

Yes I'm glad they are all working properly too. Smooth sailing for 2008. Unless a certain Party doesn't win.

Default Oooops....read this...

In today's Washington Post is a report from the NIST, that NO computerized voting machine can be made safe from tampering.

Full story at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...113001637.html

Until computer security is make airtight against fraud, we should use the methods mentioned in the NIST report.

Oh then maybe the Dems did tamper with it. We do know they like to sign up dead people and felons.

I think paper ballots are safer and more reliable.

I tend to agree, assuming there's a point to keeping them if courts won't allow them to be counted.

We had a system in NY where you pull levers, then pull the main lever that locks it into the machine. How that machine records stuff I never knew the details. We never had problems with counting but some did have mechanical failure where levers got stuck (rendering the machine unusable & causing lines in some districts). Worked for decades with no arguments, though. I don't know about you but I'd rather not fix something that isn't broken. Florida chads & diebold machines are another story.

Computers= no matter how you slice it there's always an architect who will have the power to manipulate an election. Inherent flaw.
