Little Hawk, you speak truth.

That's exactly why the American people MUST speak out against insane notions such as:
-- e-voting with no paper ballot trail
-- state laws (e.g., Florida's) that don't allow a recount unless the oficial results are "close"
-- destruction of provisional ballots -- ANY ballots or raw data -- for a period of at least 6 years after an election, or until ALL interested parties have signed off on their destruction
-- the use of "proprietary" software for recording and/or tabulating votes
-- ANY use of modems for transmission of precinct dats
-- any non-transparent procedures for ballot counting
--overtly partisan people, e.g., Katherine Harris, Glenda Hood, Ken Blackwell, being in charge of state election policies and procedures
-- and a few other idiotic notions.
