You keep hearing that voting is the most important thing in the world. That this is your moment, things are going to be better this time. In reality, things are the opposite, Democrats and Republicans talk a good game but they don’t deliver.

  • Change We Can Believe In
  • Make America Great Again
  • Yes We Can
  • Read My Lips, No New Taxes
  • You can’t complain if you don’t VOTE!
  • Your vote counts.
  • Vote: It’s your right.

What you also keep hearing is how broken the voting system is. Year after Year the same issues, both sides complaining that it must be fixed, but guess what… it never is. No matter who is in power they don’t fix the voting system and the people just take it, like sheep.

  • Long lines
  • Lost ballots
  • Outdated equipment
  • Human interference
  • Confusing policies
  • Location changes
  • No standards

So, to put this in perspective, we can land on Mars, make AI, split the atom, and track down (to the penny), what each person in America owes on their electric bill, but we can’t fix voting. What if the goal wasn’t to get you to vote? What if the goal were something else?

  • Divide Americans
  • Create Strife
  • Frustrate Voters
  • Increase Anger
  • Start Fights
  • Distract Attention
  • Strip Rights

I will tell you a truth that you will not want to believe but it will one day be a fact. The cell phone is the perfect voting machine. This is going to happen, it is inevitable. 

  • The cell phone is trusted with your Bank
  • With your Credit Cards
  • With your Medical Records
  • With your Mortgage
  • With your Home Security
  • With your Biometrics
  • With your Children

Voting could be the easiest thing in the world and best of all we could have independent tracking systems publicly owned to verify that each vote counts. (Not controlled by the government)

  • Instant registration
  • Zero lines
  • Zero wait for results
  • Maximum security
  • Instant verification and recount
  • Zero rejected ballots
  • Zero lost ballots

They Are Scared Of You Having That Much Power!!!!!!!

  1. Nope, nope and nope. That would be horrible and it would also require everyone to have a smartphone. No sir Lander, there is no reason for that.

    Convenience is how our country got to where we are today.

      Do you want to know how wrong you are?

      It has already started:

      Even I didn’t know, I was just predicting the most logical outcome.

      Agree. This is a stinking bad idea. The risk far outweighs the benefits.

      There are two big problems with computers.
      1. We cannot just look at a computer and verify it is secure. When we deliberately put a computer on a network, we multiply the security issues. Because they are complex, it is difficult to prevent hacking into computers.
      2. Computers facilitate work. That’s great! Computers also facilitate errors.

      Anyway, it is stupid to put any of our voting systems online. Just asking for trouble.

        Exactly, what else in the name of convenience are we willing to lose?

      • You stated — “big problems with computers” in respect to voting.

        My response — This thinking is a bit dated since we now use computers for every aspect of our secured data (banks, medical, taxes, military, etc). You have the option to be fearful of it but technology marches on regardless.

        It reminds me of when older people talked about doing taxes online years ago and how they couldn’t trust it. What a fleecing we got from those tax offices, I’m so glad we ignored all those naysayers and took control of our own taxes. No need for corporations and government to control everything.

        You can keep your party ran paper ballots and long lines, have fun with that outdated unsecured system. In the past you knew how unsecure the current system is, given your own blog post titles:

        “MAKING VOTER FRAUD ABSURDLY EASY”
        “EVIDENCE OF VOTER FRAUD”
        “REGISTERED TO COMMIT VOTER FRAUD?”
        “OVERCOMING VOTER FRAUD”
        “PROTECT THE VOTE”
        “VOTER FRAUD”

        LOL

        You are recommending online voting based upon our experience with our tax system? You cannot see the mess politicians have made of that?

        There are plenty of examples of hacks into both private and government computer systems. Some of the hacks have been traced to foreign governments. So it is stupid to put our voting systems online. The idea we can trust politicians to implement a reliable and secure system is just dumb.

        So why would politicians want our voting systems online? It would be easier for the states and later the Federal government to assume control an online system. Voter fraud would be easier.

      • You stated — “You are recommending online voting based upon our experience with our tax system?”

        My response — That was an analogy, not a recommendation. I was comparing past comments on fears of technology taking over traditional services in respect to concerns of privacy. I thought that was obvious.

        I also wasn’t indicating any form of recommendation since I stated, “technology marches on regardless”, to clarify I am saying your getting on board is irrelevant. This should be clear since cell phone voting has already started in Virginia.

        The recommendation to use online voting is arguably inspired by people like yourself rightfully pointing out how corrupt the current system is by parties such as the Democrats in your case and of course Republicans in the other bloggers cases. You guys have convinced me we can’t trust what we currently have.

        Your posts speak for themselves:
        “MAKING VOTER FRAUD ABSURDLY EASY”
        “EVIDENCE OF VOTER FRAUD”
        “REGISTERED TO COMMIT VOTER FRAUD?”
        “OVERCOMING VOTER FRAUD”
        “PROTECT THE VOTE”
        “VOTER FRAUD”

        You stated — “There are plenty of examples of hacks into both private and government computer systems. So, it is stupid to put our voting systems online.”

        My response — According to your articles (and using your logic) I guess it would also be stupid to use the current system since it has shown to be fraudulent and corrupted. So, no difference there. Your posts prove that successfully.

        You stated — “The idea we can trust politicians to implement a reliable and secure system is just dumb.”

        My response — Like the one we are using now that they implemented…… O.o

        I will go with what you said earlier: What solutions can you contribute to the voting challenges? One I would guess, from what you said, that doesn’t have the government rolling it out (that would be dumb)

        Why are we having voter fraud issues now? Voter fraud is a moral crime. We have put people in charge who put winning ahead on morality. No system can be made honest if the wrong people run it.

  2. Electronic voting provides a huge opportunity for rigging.

    • and yet it’s far more secure than a stack of paper entrusted to a handful of people.

      Time to accept that the old way is a mess and completely unsecured.

      • No, I think the “new way” is worse. In the 2016 US elections there were complaints about the electronic votes being rigged for the Democrats. Even a Republican congressional candidate had his vote changed to his Democrat opponent! This resulted in 3 or 4 states (traditionally Democrat) going entirely paper, due to the rigging complaints in those states. VERY curiously enough, Trump won those states. There were also reports in 2018 of electronic voting machines changing a vote from Republican to Democrat. In 2012, there were claims of a voting machine changing a vote from Obama to Romney.
        Oy vey…

        My response — I have no interest in parties or their fears. Technology will move forward whether you like it or not.

        The recent voting using cellphones will grow every election. Those who don’t want to use it can fear it, distrust it and even try to stop it but it won’t matter.

        This same argument was used for online taxes, medical and banking back in the day and it didn’t work then what makes you think it will work now?
