Elections in the USA

Talking to people over here in New York about electronic voting I couldn’t help but notice how partisan the issue has become. I sense that most people that voted republican and that know about these issues want to close their eyes because they, at least somewhere deep inside, accept the possibility that their party came to power because of widespread fraud. This is such a fucked up situation.

Let’s hope we can beat black-box voting in Europe before we have such a culture of widespread distrust eating away at the very roots of the democratic process, because I’m not sure there is a way back from where the Americans have ended up now.
