Conservative magazine Insight finally reports on a subject that was widely known well before the 2000 presidential election - Diebold voting machines are easy to hack.
Electronic voting machines should not be used with or without a paper receipt. It is too easy to program computers to say what you want them to say.
Our primative electoral department in lowly Westland, Michigan uses a long paper ballot that even provides a paper receipt. It doesn't create any longer lines than our touchscreen voting system did during the 2000 election, and I am confident that when I darken the circle for Ralph Nader on my ballot, it will read Ralph Nader when it comes out the other end. I had no such confidence in 2000.
By the way, did I say Ralph Nader for president in 2008? Or maybe Jesse Ventura...
