    The claim that a republican congress FORCED Everyone to change to specific types of machines is also a repugnant lie espoused by people like Truthmatters.


    Here is a reminder of what the BILL actually did and its results...

    After the 2000 election debacle, Congress gave the states large grants to replace faulty voting machines, including the kind that produced hanging chads. But in too many cases, states and localities rushed to buy electronic voting machines that do not produce paper records. Voters have to trust the numbers they spit out on election night, but the numbers cannot be independently verified, and that is unacceptable.

    California is another hot bed of Republican conservative control as well...

    SPENCER MICHELS: In Alameda County encoders that format the electronic ballot for each voter failed so even supporters of electronic voting, like elections official Elaine Ginnold admit to the rush to buy new machines after the 2000 election caused problems.

    Heres your problem!

    I never said the Rs Forced the machines I said it was them calling for the machies.

    I did that to show that the statement "The dems screamed for the electronic voting machines" was incorrect.

    The Dems screamed to have all the votes counted ,the R party screamed to NOT go back and recount the vote for obvious reasons.

    So that leaves you with the Archer interview in the news of your first post.

    Archer is not a representative of the Dem party is he?

    Hes just some guy who may be a professor but is now very embarassed of that interview I bet.

    The R who campioned the Voter law which is greatly responsible for the majority of electronic voting machine systems which will now have to be scrapped because they are untrustable was an Republican congressman Bob Ney who is now in jail for corruption.

    That is a Fact!

    You wouldn't know facts from fiction with a score card to keep you straight. YOU claimed the republicans foisted on us the current systems when in fact they did NO such thing The press and the States demanded action after the 2000 election, INCLUDING Liberal run States, politicians and officials and Liberal run news organizations.

    Congress bowed to pressure and passed a bill allowing money for NEW technology, NO where in the bill does it A) require a State to use the money and change anything, B)Require the State to buy any specific machine or from any specific company.

    Your claims are simply horse shit. Your partisan crap is transparent.

    I will require Proof of all those statements.

    You see I provided you with some undeniable proof of what I submitted.

    The bill which is responsible for millions of dollars being given to each state to distribute amoung its districts to buy the electronic machines was sponsored by an Ohio Republican who is now in prison for corruption.

    At the time he sponsered this bill the only Cos who made these machines were right wing repbulican companies.
    Two owners were Brothers.
    One of those brothers Promised Bush the presidency in writing.

    Now how could this guy promise Bush the election?

    What did he mean?
