So I was just reading a story about the well-known vulnerabilities with electronic voting machines, ones by Diebold in particular. In 2004 Black Box Voting revealed that a semi-trained chimpanzee was able to hack a Diebold machine in 5 minutes. Imagine what an actual hacker could do. It’s disgusting, there’s no way to prove it, but the likelihood that the 2004 election was stolen using intentionally inaccurate voting machines (with no paper trail) is very real. So reading this story I struck upon an idea, and this one is very important- I want you all to start spreading it, because it could honestly change the world as we know it:
In 2006′s congressional election, I want hackers, real hackers, to hack those machines and hand the Dems the vote. that’s right, use the devil’s pitchfork against him.
Only when their tools have been turned against them will the Repubs be willing, in fact they will spearhead a move, to make it so that every vote has a paper trail, and the security of the machines counting the votes is assured. Spread this word far and wide- your personal future rests on what happens in 2006 and 2008- will you allow yet one more election to be stolen by the far right cabal?
