Would it be such a bad thing if the voting machines were hacked? In my books, anyone smart enought to hack such a machine should have more control of the figureheads leading this country than the average guy that votes based on the names he can pronounce or has heard more commercials of, completely unaware if the selected politian stands for any of before said “guy’s” issues or values.
In the words of Scott Adams:
I believe those worries are totally misplaced. Now don’t get me wrong – there’s a 100% chance that the voting machines will get hacked and all future elections will be rigged. But that doesn’t mean we’ll get a worse government. It probably means that the choice of the next American president will be taken out of the hands of deep-pocket, autofellating, corporate shitbags and put it into the hands of some teenager in Finland. How is that not an improvement?
Statistically speaking, any hacker who is skilled enough to rig the elections will also be smart enough to select politicians that believe in . . . oh, let’s say for example, science. Compare that to the current method where big money interests buy political ads that confuse snake-dancing simpletons until they vote for the guy who scares them the least. Then during the period between the election and the impending Rapture, that traditionally elected President will get busy protecting the lives of stem cells while finding creative ways to blow the living crap out of anything that has the audacity to grow up and turn brownish.
Have a mentioned lately that Scott is one of the more rational individuals in America that can put just about anything into perspective and add comedy.
