Paranoids have enemies, too

· long story short

Others have complained about the way the Bush administration makes them start wanting to put on a tinfoil hat and join the conspiracy theorists. We’re reasonable people and we resent having to seriously consider some of these scary tales of potential voter-fraud.
It’s bad enough if it’s already happened, but why does it seem so hard to make sure it never happens (again?) in the future? I can only hope that whoever is the eventual Democratic nominee will take the risk of unauditable, tamperable voting machines seriously as a threat to their chance of winning the election fair and square. If we roll over for this kind of thing, then we practically deserve to lose our franchise.
