Not to be a nattering nabob of negativity but the Applachian Trail has many winding paths. It's easy for a "Family Values" guy to get lost.

This would be one of the rare instances in which casting a paper absentee ballot would be better than faith-based voting on what amounts to an electronic black hole, aka the ES&S iVotronic touch screen Direct Recording Electronic (DRE).
Unfortunately, eligibility to cast absentee ballots is quite limited in South Carolina.
Still Clueless About Touch-Screens in S. Carolina
An electronic vote count is not dependent upon moral scruples. For the machine, it is of no moment whether Sanford is actually guilty of criminal trespass. The machine will produce whatever numbers its hidden source code has been programmed to produce.

ernest, to be fair,we do not know if the pre determined results are programmed into the machines or the soe software that reports them...or a little into both
but since no person can double check either, both are unconstitutional

I'm not sure that this alone would be enough to definitely turn voters off (as if their votes are accurately counted and machines that have produced impossible-looking results in the past). It sounds like an odd domestic personal dispute, to be sure, but folks of all ideologies get into those. What I find more disturbing are the corporate deals polititicans that erode what is necessary for the well-being of a majority of citizens, and a lot of that is done in broad daylight with little press reaction or public outcry.

Mark Sanford is Family Values

This is all Jenny Sanford's fault. If she did not let her self go, then Mark would not have been forced to outsource their marital relations to Argentina.
Now his pregnant mistress, (another anchor baby), yells at him in spanish all day long. So he sneaked over to Jenny's to she if she wanted a quickie! Whats the big deal???

Democracy In Election Process

You keep trying to denigrate Alvin Greene's primary VICTORY with no proof whatsoever of fraud other than your own heartfelt feeling that somebody else should have won. Heartfelt feelings are nice, but that's not how elections are decided. Show us some real facts that the election was stolen before you find another excuse to run somebody's name into the ground.

The ironically self-named "Democracy in Election Process" said @ 8:

Actually, here's what I have proof for: Of votes that can actually be known to reflect the voter's intent, Vic Rawl defeated Alvin Greene. So, do you have ANY evidence that Greene defeated Rawl? Because the existing verifiable evidence suggests the opposite.
Heartfelt feelings are nice, but that's not how elections are decided.
Correct. They are decided by verified and authenticated votes by actual human beings. Or used to be. So, where is your verified and authenticated evidence that, other than your heartfelt feeling that Greene won, he actually did?
I'll be waiting for it. Have been for about two years. Lemme know when ya got something.
Show us some real facts that the election was stolen before you find another excuse to run somebody's name into the ground.
I didn't claim it was stolen. I don't make claims I can't back up with actual evidence. You, on the other hand, seem to be claiming that Greene won the election. Cool. Please provide the proof or tell me where I can find it! Because, to date, nobody has shown that to me, or to Vic Rawl, the man who was told he lost, but was never shown any actual evidence to support that. In fact, when he tried to look directly at the evidence, he was told he could not, that it was the proprietary property of the ES&S company.
So...still waiting. Lemme know. Until then, it's cute how you chose a name that is the opposite of what you apparently believe in. Nice work!
