Democracy is a sham never more in evidence than the elections in Florida.
It works like this: If the elites don’t get what they want, then a recount is in order.
Of course, the recount in Florida is only coming about because the “last minute ballots found” trick didn’t work.
It won’t matter anyway.
We delude ourselves so badly.
We are are willing to believe anything.
Our current delusion is the supremacy of technology.
We want to believe that an unscrupulous person cannot link their computer to the voting machine and add in 37,543 votes supported by an equal number of registrants complete with bogus addresses, birthdates and signatures.
Well, as it turns out these voting machines can be tapped into via the Internet through a variety of ways. They aren’t foolproof.
Here is to the Pollyannas.
We don’t really need an opinion from a computer analyst, though, do we?
No, we only need to understand that human nature has not changed.
Machines may not lie, but we still do.
Now, here is a fact to consider: I have had numerous bank accounts, equity and credit, for the last 45 years. The bank has never made one mistake on my various accounts in that period of time. Not even a penny.
I’ve had many, many mortgages held by many, many banks, and never once has a mistake been made on my mortgage.
I keep hoping that there will be a glitch in the system and that my mortgage will disappear.
I’ve had no such luck.
How is it possible for a government to regulate a financial system that never makes a mistake by even a penny on my banking, credit cards and mortgages over decades, yet the same government can’t come up with a foolproof voting system.
They can’t because they don’t want to. They want the corruption at the voting booth.
A corrupt voting booth is instrumental for putting into office the people who they, the corporate elite, who control both parties, have chosen.
Sure, authorities. The system is sound.
Whatever you say.
