And if the voting process is not secure, neither is America's democracy. The timely, cautionary documentary HACKING DEMOCRACY exposes gaping holes in the security of America's electronic voting system.

The recent Diesel Sweeties comic about voting machines is sad in a "it's funny 'cause it's true" way: "the future of evil is in manipulating information." Thank you DIEBOLD.

Thanks for the funny link to Diesel Sweeties and yes, you are indeed correct. The future of evil is the manipulation of information. On the other hand, the future of good fortune and improvement in our world may well be the open sharing of information.
