No county in the United States should ever allow any voting machines without a paper ballot trail. If you can't have a legitimate recount of the vote then every one of these paperless voting machines must have an 8 X 12 picture of Bush and Cheney with their middle fingers extended and laughing it up in the direction of the voter. The legacy of the Executive branch's 2004 style of vote rigging has continued to prevail. Americans lose again.
We'll take your vote away!

I voted in California in the '00 and '04 elections. The election there went fine as far as I was concerned. Bush did not win.

The '06 voter should take into consideration the following:
Bush the neoCon and the republican congress have plagued us with:
Lies, Iraq, Katrina folly, a botched Medicare/Medicaid drug plan, No Child Left Behind, a national economic surplus turned into a gargantuan debt, increasing lobbying crime, and endless war on terror which is in fact been a war on civil rights and liberties, a "Homeland Security" agency which is by all accounts a fetid swamp of corruption, mismanagement and ineptitude, "Patriot" Acts I & II have shredded our most sacred document, the Bill of Rights, the embrace of torture has cast the US in the role of a sordid, sadistic demon wallowing in the very "cruel and unusual punishment" forbidden by its own Constitution, NSA universal spy program has turned a nation founded on reverence for privacy, free speech and due process into a cynical Big Brother with utter contempt for individual rights or liberties, two consecutive corrupt presidential elections, mega lies, and record crime in government.
Accountability will become manifest if the republican majority is voted out, because it sends a clear message to Bush.

MadsenReport.com is reporting on the attempted coup of Equatorial Guinea and how British, Spanish and American people were behind it. Further it relates the president of Equatorial Guinea to Riggs bank (which might be today's BCCI) and to "lobbying" by Jack Abramoff. Oh what a twisted tale.
That the prez of Equatorial Guinea would meet with executives from large oil company in Manhattan in September and find himself the target of a military coup the next March tells us a lot about the American (and British) policy towards the world's oil countries.
Equatorial Guinea is apprently rich in oil.
Next we'll be hearing Jack Abramoff lobbied for Diebold.
Hey Brad, could we get a current list of all the states where major debates, actual court cases or legislation are going on with relation to electronic voting machines?
So far, North Carolina looks to be the leader in getting it right.
