    Check it out. A couple of hackers and some determined citizens managed to hack a Dibold voting machine (40% of electronic voting machines in the USA) to provide false results with no trace of tampering. This is scary:

    HBO has the journalistic credentials of the Weekly World News.

    Plus, the machines that account for like 40% of California's voting machines have a yellow button on the back you hold for three seconds to reset the ballot. Wanna vote 10 times go ahead.

    Besides, with no paper trail, who's to say WHO you voted for. How do you recount nothing?
    Computers can't be hacked, never heard of it.<-sarcasm

    Just makes it easier to steal elections.

    Hateful...I don't think thats really called for. Cel, you have to admit that you pull a LOT of shit out of your ass. You also have to admit that you LOVE to play devil's advocate. I know you like to argue, and I know you'll piss all over the thread, but I figured maybe some people would get something out of it, so instead of just attacking it becuase you saw the title, how about you watch it and then make a decision about the quality. I didn't feel that it was all made up, and there's a lot of good footage. At the very least it brings up the issue that we need to reasses our system of voting for the people of this country to actually trust that they are being heard.

    Goodnight everybody!

    Hard dose of reality: my eight year old daughter could hack a Diebold voting machine. The encryption is laughable (READ: less than 5 minutes to fully crack), the system itself is such a piece of shit and because of the system they backend the whole thing with, changes outside of what the voting machines make are untracable.

    Give me 200 dollars in gas, a day off of work, a laptop with three wireless cards, legal immunity and Jesus Christ will be the next senator of your state.

    No, B, this documentary was made after the 2000 election. The documentary aired sometime recently on HBO, but I don't think that HBO produced it.

    If you guys still believe, especially after Election 2000, that ANY of the voting results aren't tampered with, you're an idiot. America stopped being a democracy a long time ago.
