    And the owners of almost every manufacturer are rabid donors to Republican and conservative causes.

    It ain't the making that's important. The "fine-tuning" is done by the last guy to touch it.

    Actually, the Diebold paperless voting machines are paintained by loval election staff. The provide no audit trail and can be easily configured to rig the vote with no more tools than a scewdriver. Diebold is a major contributor to Rpublicans and has locked up contracts in a number of swing states. See, for example, http://www.openvotingfoundation.org/...hp?articleId=1 and http://motherjones.com/politics/2004...itical-machine. The machines are not maintained by any giant union, they are maintained by political appointees. The lack f better security and of any audit trail is a scandal.

    Why would it be hard to lock out the calibration portion of the machine so only certain people had access and then require a log sheet of some sort to keep track of who calibrates. Then you have much tighter security and a paper trail of who touched what...That would seem like it would completely get rid of fraud.

    It is locked out but election workers need access since it needs to be adjusted on site and may need adjustment during the day.

    So have a log sheet and bam you have a paper trail of who was in and out. They can make it an electronic paper trail so that it wouldn't be tampered with.

    the voting machines are probably manufactured by the same company that makes the slot/poker machines and we know how tamper proof and reliable they are

    You are arguing my point.

    It's not the manufacturer of the machines that does the calibration or whatever you want to call it. Diebolt and the others make a machine that is in accord with the specifications that are put out for bid. If the local folks spec a machine that will be a problem, why are you blaming one national party or the other? It's the politicians for that unit of government that are at the root of the problem. The rest of us nationally may have to suffer for their hackneyed and childish behavior.

    Going back almost 50 years now, Prof Brinkley in a PS 201 class was heard to point out that ..."both parties cheat. The Democrats cheat on a more massive scale and the Republicans cheat in a more subtle manner."
