Whatched it on HBO last night. Worth the watch if you don't mind gettin pissed. Does it really matter who we vote for anyway? They`re all rich, lying, crooked thieves who have no idea what it`s like to try to survive with normal paychecks.

Yeah, I know. With all the people on here who bitch about George Bush, and express their liberal sentiments toward the voting process, I'm not surprised at all that none of them bothered to watch it. Just guess at the way GB could have `stolen` the election, without any grasp on the means with which elections might be compromised. Now the democrats won, so I guess they don`t care as much. With all the whining I hear from this 13-17 democrat category though, I guess I can`t say I`m surprised that they`re all talk and no chalk.

The real problem was monopoly. None of these things were tested, nor was there any room for competition BECAUSE of this secrecy. I did use the qualifier of "most," because there are certain things that only a monopoly can accomodate, and in that case the monopoly should be funded by the people. However, the difficulty is in finding out through trial and error which method is preferrable in each given case. In the market, you can always tack-on new regulations, and create more collusion within the government. When STARTING with the a state of (gov't) monopoly, however, there is usually no going back short of wholesale revolution. Remember, it was the public OFFICIALS who BOUGHT the voting systems, and certified their acceptability for use; even after the final blow vis-a-vis memory card trials. Any bumpkin can pitch a faulty product to the public office - it takes an EXCEPTIONAL bumpkin to buy into it, and you only see that kind of incompetence in monopolistic institutions.
