Eliminate the voting machines

Mike Malloy is right.  We must get rid of the voting machines.  Already I was in favor of paper and pen ballots counted by hand.

But Malloy is right, that certain people, extremely scary people, like you wouldn't believe (the equals of Hitler), are using these machines to slowly take over the country.

People who know me probably can confirm that I do not latch onto conspiracy theories.  I am inferring from facts, not from the absence of facts, which is the root of conspiracy theories.  I come by my conclusions progressively, not all at once; as facts develop, not before.

I am a computer programmer.  If I punch up a straight Democratic ticket, with checkmarks confirming my choices, and then I get to the review page and the checkmarks there are straight Bushist ticket, how can that possibly happen?  Making this happen is too easy, so why is it happening sometimes?

My theory has it that the appearance of flakiness is a built-in feature of the machines.  The machines are turning Democratic votes into Bushist votes, but it is done in such a way that the stealing seems no more than computer programming bugs.  Only some of the machines need to be compromised, and it would take only one developer to make the necessary modifications or include the necessary module.
