From evilGOPbastards:

Hi Mark,

I was at a meeting with the chairman of the Harris County (Houston) Dems and three Congressional candidates. I raised the issue of electronic voting and the recent GAO report. None of the candidates had even heard of the GAO report, and the chairman insisted on changing the subject, saying that if voters thought their votes wouldn’t count we’d never get them to the polls — as if the casting of votes was the “end” instead of the “means” to an end.

I was flabbergasted. The Democratic Party can only be described as willfully ignoring this crucial issue. Their acquiescence in spite of their upset defeats (2000, 2002, 2004) combined with the sudden failure of previously reliable polling methodologies since the introduction of e-voting is inexplicable for a political party that really wants to win. Do they really want to win or do they just like doing a pantomime of democracy? What the hell is going on here?

I’m coming to the conclusion that, lacking a successful legal challenge or a legislative fix (neither appears likely), a coordinated nation-wide “Boston Tea Party” campaign of citizen action to smash the e-voting machines at the polls or where they are warehoused is the only thing that will save our democracy.

Regards,

J’ac
