Politics drive everyone insane. But I guess *someone* has to care. I sure don`t, but I couldn`t do anything about it anyway. ^~^;;
You mean "as a republic", don`t you?
Of course..because everone in the south loves it, wants the confedracy to rise again and are active members of the KKK..
Tell me, how many people`s brains turn off at mentions of politics, yet they continue to keep yammering?
I remember from his first election, there wasn`t controversy about these machines, it was all about hanging chads etc so although the flaw in this voting method is worrying, I don`t think it won Bush the election.
& SpoonFork, you should investigate everything, you only run into trouble when you believe something just because people repeat it over & over with no proof, basically it`s mind numbing you into agreeing
btw, the infected memory cards not used could be investigated with a different device to prove if this occurred, personally i doubt anyone has ever hacked a real one
any method that is used someone will claim repulicans cheated, notice how no one in the media ever claims a democrat cheated. i`m more interested in why that is true than how these silly boxes can be hacked. worse yet, too many folks believe what the media tells them without even questioning the facts behind the news, hows that for "1984" doublespeak.
Oh by the way, On what the Pope said...
What has Islam contributed to the world (Make sure that it is not Pre-Islam)?
I was just thinking...if you can crack into a voting machine...and manipulate the number of votes that each candidate were to receive...
By golly, you could probably change the entire results of an election altogether!
All of the IAB people are always ignorant f*ckers.
I`M SPANISH.AND 15, THEREFORE UNABLE TO VOTE.I`M NOT SUPPORTING BUSH, BUT TO SAY THAT HE HACKED THE VOTING SYSTEM IS IGNORANT BULLSH*T.
I bet if they had a software update memory card laying around somewhere, someone could easily swap them and you`d have an official installing the virus.
Heck. Whats to say that the officials couldn`t be in on it (if it were to happen, or did)
Give me a break. I believe the voting machines were hacked, yes, but providing a link to whatreallyhappened.com is a sure way to tell others that you have no idea what you`re talking about.
Honestly. The site claims you don`t need water to live. What a load of BS.
Now, I went and followed your link, and if you really want to give some evidence, might I suggest NOT getting it from that site?
The same site that claims that FDR KNEW about the attack on Pearl Harbor before it happened.
Jesus Tap dancing christ in hell
The point here is, that the memory card isn`t the problem when software updates happen, it transmits this message to other Diebold machines. Causing them to be infected as well, infecting ONE machine may infect hundreds.
That`s the problem, and do you think Bush really won the election? Come on, like it was said earlier, the exit polls have never been wrong before!
Kind of weird don`t you think?
The reason anti-virus software would be extremely hard to instal... is the Memory cards are used to give SOFTWARE Updates to the machines.
The virus acts like a malicious software update, in any case... this is the essential flaw in them.
Locks are actually incredibly easy to pick, with new not so widley known methods, check it out.
and no evidence is left as opposed to the case of picking.
The main issue, is that several million votes would have to be changed, and if the virus WERE put on a software updating memory card, (I`m sure they are used for both updates, and storage), say 6 months before an election so that the virus could spread significantly, it would 1 have to delete itself from all memory cards by a certain date, and two would even taking this into account have a 6 month detection window, knowning what we know that`s
Deserves repeating. You at least have to look into this. At least.
BILL GATES IS GHEY LOLZ!!!1!
You all assume that, just because it can be hacked, that that`s the ONLY way Bush won.
Maybe, just maybe, he did just like EVERY OTHER F*CKING PRESIDENT and won the usual way.
Get over yourselves.
I am sure that it wouldn`t be too hard to develop an anti-this-malicious-software programme that can be run when the polling station staff run their initial checks.
I called it? (woot?)
