Cyberattack on the voting system

March 19th, 2013 by Vader

It’s now come to pass.     

I do not know what to make of the fact that most of the fradulent ballot requests were received from overseas IPs.

I would happily do away with absentee ballots, period. I might be willing to negotiate absentee voting for deployed military personnel, but not if it means making exceptions for anyone else. The ritual of presenting oneself at the polling place to vote in person is important.

It’s all moot. The Democrats have fought every attempt to reform voting procedures, usually successfully.

His Majesty: “That’s because the Democrats have a larger constituency than Republicans among those too stupid to conform with reasonable voting procedures. Though I wouldn’t rule out a Democratic edge in voting fraud as well.”

His Majesty may not be a Republican, but he certainly isn’t a Democrat.

I like election day as a civic holiday, and the absentee and early voting drains away the shared experience. I never guessed that our governments’ ability fo carry out elections would come into question as it has over the last decade.

Even our polling place voting procedures are a joke. Add in absentee ballots, early voting, and electronic voting and the whole thing looks like a contest between fraud and incompetence with chance playing the referee. Fortuna imperatrix mundi.

During the last election, the UN brought in voting representatives from other countries to show them how we do our elections. They were horrified at the lack of security our voting systems had.

But if you try to discuss any of this in wider circles, everything argument is shut down as ‘racist’.
