You got questions, they got answers

A followup post on Redo Voting addressing a whole slew of questions and concerns about it—including some that were raised here. I like the very first one the best myself, devotedly sarcastic old contrarian that I am.

I recently published an article about Redo Voting, a transparent, unhackable way to vote, or shall I say, a way for legal voters to cast a ballot. It is a Democrats’ nightmare and everyone in Washington, D.C. is talking about it.

Our loyal PJ Media readers have overloaded us with comments, critiques, and questions regarding Redo Voting. The dedicated Americans at Redo Voting have taken the time to address the concerns in your comments. Here are the answers to some of your verbatim questions. Here is my personal favorite:

Q. They’ll find some excuse to call it racist.

A. Probably, but it won’t be a valid excuse.

Great answer! I love the crew at Redo Voting!

It’s longer than the usual PJM post, but in light of the goodly number of comments on my first one I figgered y’all might find this interesting.

Thanks for linking this. Interesting reading, even if I am still very skeptical that it would work. The answers still seem to depend upon a hypothetical “secure, unalterable” database — no such sparkly purple unicorn exists. They are also reliant upon the state-issued ID being real and secure, which is another pipe dream. Many blue states are freely issuing “real” IDs to illegals, and they are not all that secure anyway.

Among the million things impossible, securing the data is one of them as somebody has to have access. “Somebody” can be bought, threatened, or broken. And then there is the fact that the access can be hacked. Billion $$$ corporations spending tens of millions on security and still they get hacked.

I do love the idea of an ID preventing vote fraud. I wonder just how many drinks/beers were purchased with fraudulent “state issued” ID in the last year…

Even paper ballots can be cheated upon if the watchers are corrupt.

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go.
