If you look at my posts, what I've expressed is a desire to get more voters involved in the process. 

That's like saying we should lower gas prices before we invent cars.

If the results will be rigged anyway, there is no point in anyone voting.

If you knew your history you'd know that higher voter turnout has traditionally favored Democrats.  This isn't a Republican or Democrat issue.  It's about helping ensure we don't have one of the worst voter turnouts in the industrialized world.

I agree voter turnout should be an important issue.  But focusing energies on that before were fixed what is a very easily manipulated system is pointless.

I don't understand this.  There is an option which allows for e-voting, with a paper backup so that recounts are possible. 

How can anyone be against this?  You have ease of voting, the counting is instant... but a paper trail remains.  This means, if exit polls say that Joe Smith has 60% of the popular vote, then suddenly the other guy wins with 60% of the vote, a recount can be done in days using the paper trail.

Why would anyone not like this option?
I don't know for sure, but I heard someone talking on FNC that people could sell there votes since there was proof they voted a certain way on paper.  Huh

If that is the biggest worry the opposition has - that people illegally selling their votes will somehow be inconvenienced - I think they just strengthened the argument for going back to paper backups.

I think voting on paper is a no brainer.  Giant sky scrapers can be imploded by flying planes into them and we can't even count paper ballots???  Roll Eyes
