America’s voting machines have serious cybersecurity problems. That isn’t news. It’s been documented beyond any doubt over the last decade in numerous peer-reviewed papers and state-sponsored studies by me and by other computer security experts. We’ve been pointing out for years that voting machines are computers, and they have reprogrammable software, so if attackers can modify that software by infecting the machines with malware, they can cause the machines to give any answer whatsoever. I’ve demonstrated this in the laboratory with real voting machines — in just a few seconds, anyone can install vote-stealing malware on those machines that silently alters the electronic records of every vote.
I get it. I do. I voted third party in the last presidential election. Even when it’s clear that third party votes steal thunder from the most viable (sane) candidate, it’s a struggle to vote for someone you disagree with when a candidate that aligns better with your views is on the ballot. When ideals clash with pragmatism it’s incredibly painful to have to decide which way to cast your vote.
So on the one hand, I absolutely get it. But on the other hand, screw you.
Do you see how fucking close these margins are? 2% of a state’s vote might not seem like much until you look at how close Trump and Hillary are running in some of these contentious states. 2% is a whole hell of a lot when we’re dealing with a fucking sociopathic rapist con man running half a percent or less above his main opponent in battlegeound states.
TL;DR–I respect your idealism, and I hope you’re fucking happy. Now I’m gonna go sit in a corner with my bottle of wine and stress cry.
one thing i think a lot of the shitty liberals who say “the far left steals votes away from the democratic party!” don’t consider is that a lot of the people who defect from the democrats to the far left were so disgusted with the democrats that there was zero chance of them sticking with the dems anyways, and the democrats should honestly just be thankful that they defected to the far left instead of to the republicans.
Trump’s team defends Jeff Sessions by citing a story accusing “black Democrats” of voter fraud
Donald Trump’s team is defending attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions from accusations that he unfairly investigated black activists for voter fraud in the 1980s, citing an article alleging that “black Democrats” really did steal votes. At day two of the attorney general confirmation for Sessions, a Trump transition staffer stopped by the reporters’ table and dropped off a dossier of stories defending Sessions’s record. Read more
Did you hear that little flutter followed by a soft fluff. That was the last fig leaf cover what was once called the “Worlds Greatest Democracy”. And the way they did it hurts the worst. The alleged Super Delegates that came over to Hillary want to “Remain Anonymous”, There is NO EVIDENCE that anyone decided to support Hillary, but now many “Fence Sitters” will jump aboard with a winner. This is the “Winner Syndrome”, or “Everybody loves a winner” and :Defeat is an Orphan”. It could easily come out 20 years down the road that this is a “PR Stunt” by Clinton Staffer. If this was the Media of the 60s at least a few “Reporters” would be demanding names. No one can prove that Supers did or did not throw in their support. This calls for even Hillary supporters everywhere vote tomorrow for Bernie, just to prove that you want Democracy and even your own Candidate should not think they can freely steal your vote and slap you as worthless.
