Howard Dean: " I ask you to put paperless e-voting machines on the shelf until 2006 or until they are reliable and will allow recounts. In a democracy you always count the votes no matter who wins. To abandon that principle is to abandon America."

Hillary Clinton, Oct 15 Rally: Kerry will win, "as long as every vote is counted and we have no problems ensuring an honest and accurate election."

Al Gore at the Dem Convention: "Let's make sure that this time every vote is counted."

John Kerry to the NAACP: "We're not only going to make sure every vote counts, we're going to make sure that every single vote is counted."

John Edwards Election night: "John Kerry and I made a promise to the American people that with this election, every vote would count and every vote would be counted."

John Kerry to the Black Caucus: "Well, we are here to let them know that we fight tooth and nail to make sure that this time, every vote is counted and every vote counts."

Hey, look, it's the black caucus again...I wonder if the democrats will stand up for them this time(unlike 2000)...maybe kerry would of been the "senator from massachesetts that exposed the 2000 election fraud"...just think, he might of won this year...but then again, that would mean he would have battled Gore...good thing he waited untill 2004, ABB seemed like a winner...

if electronic voting is a problem because it doesn't leave a paper trail, why not make the machines print out something like a receipt that the voter can take after voting in case it is needed in a recount? that way there would be a paper trail and the would be proof of the vote.

believe it or not

Many people have suggested exactly that, including the fellow who designed the machines! However, neither Democrats nor Republicans saw fit to object to the paperless machines. Yes, it's nuts, it's outrageous, and I wonder how many Americans will happily accept the new totalitarianism.
