How to Steal An Election: Early Voting and Software Patches

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. In the land of the witless, the half-wit is King. So, being that this is Amerika, there’s an election going on, and it seems as though the Republican and Democratic candidates for President are both blind and witless…who will be king? It comes down to how many votes can be stolen for Candidate A and how many votes can be spoiled for Candidate B.

Welcome to Campaign 2012, where the voter fraud is almost as transparent as the candidates platforms. I see that Ohio, a major battleground state, apparently will not be able to finalize the results of the election on Tuesday due to a huge administrative cock-up with absentee ballots…convenient. I see that New York may extend the election up to twenty days after the fact, just in case voters in the area cannot get out to vote via Military Polling Truck on Election Day. I see that three to four of the battleground states are already contested, regardless of the vote, with armies of Lawyers ready to wrangle the election for their candidate, also regardless of the vote. I see that voting machines are haphazardly voting Obama or Romney, regardless of the voter’s choice. Above all, I see the reporting on these gross violations against the Spirit of Free Elections as marveling at the resourcefulness in which the Candidates can disenfranchise voters rather than publicly rebuking them for disenfranchising voters.

Remember when the Mainstream Media marveled at what a wonderful Liar Bill Clinton was when they should have been calling him out on his lying? Rather they were in awe of the man who could spin such tall tales and in return the Media repeated the lies, protected the liar, and demonized those who spoke Truth. What I see is an election being stolen, by both parties, right before the eyes of the American People…and no one seems to really care.

Early Voting should be abolished. I may sound unpatriotic to some, but the Constitution of the United States of America, our Founding Document, states in Article Two, Clause Four states:

The Congress may determine the Time of chusing [sic] the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

I see nowhere in the Fourth Clause “…and the first 14 to 8 days prior to the Day on which they shall give their votes they shall be able to give their votes…” Nope. Nada. Zilch. There is no Constitutional Clause that allows the extension of a national election for the purpose of “Doing whatever we can do to get our candidate elected.” No, no, no, I don’t think so sweetheart, not ever.

Electronic Voting should be abolished. It is anathema to an OPEN and HONEST election. Most electronic voting machines do not have paper backups…very odd how our elected politicians were keen to get that into law isn’t it? Another issue with Electronic voting is the need for “recalibration” which is, from an IT point of view, utter tripe. Touch screens do require calibration…initially. However, if the election process worked right up until the Obamney Choice…it’s not the touchscreen that is causing your selection to go for “The Other Guy,” it is software.

When a touchscreen gets calibrated, there are usually a series of twenty-five points of calibration for the initial setup. The calibration software marks a spot on the screen and the technician presses that point. This process will continue until all points of calibration have been entered in and the screen now responds with the accuracy of a mouse. To suddenly have only ONE election option screw up due to touchscreen calibration is, well, it’s a bullshit answer to say the least. Why? Because in the IT world there are no half-measures, there are no almost-sort-of problems sometimes. It’s either All In, or Nothing at all. When was the last time you knew someone who was “Partially” pregnant? Never, because something either IS, or it IS NOT.

If I went through five screens, selected my choices on each screen with no problems, and THEN and ONLY THEN when I get to the Presidential selection does the screen decide to turn tricks for me? It is purposeful manipulation not a Calibration issue with the screen. Why? Because in troubleshooting things either work or they do not work. If the calibration of the screen is off, then every selection should have been difficult to say the least, not simply the last step where you elect the President. If everything was good and right up to that point and THEN it goes wild, you have a SOFTWARE ISSUE, not a HARDWARE ISSUE.

When was the last time you had to reprogram the buttons of your mouse to work with your computer? When was the last time you had to “recalibrate” your keyboard for your computer? You should never have to, as these devices have a default profile that, once set up, is set for good. Therefore, in theory, once you have configured your mouse for your computer you should never have to again and it should operate the same all of the time, regardless of the program that is currently running, the motions of the mouse, the horizontal and vertical movements will remain the same always. Meaning, that just because you navigate to, does not mean that the mouse will suddenly change its default motion. The rate motion will remain static to the default settings.

Once a touchscreen has been calibrated, and some may require calibration at every power on especially if there is no internal storage for the voting machine, then the calibration is static while the Electronic voting Machine is operational. Meaning, that once the machine is calibrated, it is calibrated. If screens one through four worked perfectly well and screen five screwed up…Its SOFTWARE. This means that someone has been playing around with the software inside of the machine, not that the screen needs re-calibrated. This means that someone applied a Software Patch and there was a bug in the Patch. What you are seeing is a visible proof of a badly configured software patch, not a sudden attack of amnesia on the part of the Hardware. Software means People, specifically People manipulating the vote via software patching.

Just something to keep in mind this wonderful election cycle.
