post the relevant links, if you wouldn't mind. I know this may be old news, and I apologize if I'm not up to speed, but then again, it's never too late for me (and others) to learn (or to be reminded). What I've heard about electronic voting so far is its inherent problems with verifiability. I haven't heard anything specific tying Diebold to the Republican Party. Can you enlighten? I noticed that shamatha has an article about the alleged fixing of voter registration in Florida, so I will definitely be checking that out. I'm not necessarily saying that you're wrong about any of your claims. It's just that you throw them out there with very little explanation and laced with invective, and I really don't see how that helps anyone understand what needs to be understood.
