Electronic Voting Machine Problems Today

What with Watauga County and the rest of North Carolina headed for electronic voting by 2006 -- like the rest of the sheep -- and what with persistent and alarming warnings that the machines can be hacked, manipulated, and generally bitch-slapped into producing the election results that nefarious forces might want ... today's news about breakdowns in perfectly new machines in Maryland, security lapses in Georgia, and other problems in other states involved in Super Tuesday primaries should fill us all with suspicions if not outright dread. No paper trail, no evidence you ever touched the screen for Candidate A, B, or C -- don't say you're prone to trust this situation. Not us! Not now. Not ever.
