opednews.com Headlined to H4 11/3/12

The truth is that we've never had a shortage of academics who publicly support (often served with a big dollop of "expert" condescension) the continued use of concealed electronic ballot counting, with minimal safeguards, like 3% random "spot-checks" (when we're lucky) and the useless Touchscreen paper "receipts" that have proven insufficient to truly protect our votes.

On the radio, Rosenfeld specifically mentioned academics as the elite class voters should rely upon to determine what is appropriate for our voting system.

I couldn't disagree more.

Keep in mind that there are also plenty of "expert academics" who will publicly deny that climate change is real.  In my Harper's article, I also cite numerous academics - those who have proven the extreme vulnerability of our voting machines, including reports from Princeton, Yale, the Brennan Center for Justice, Johns Hopkins, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Argonne National Laboratory, among many others.

But I believe that what really matters is not what any academics or "experts" say - what matters is whether voters know that their voice is being heard, and their ballots are being counted, and counted accurately. The only way that can happen is if we end concealed electronic ballot counting - not by blithely assuring voters there's nothing to worry about. We are not children, and the facts clearly state otherwise.

Facts matter.

Elections should not be "faith based," and whether our votes are counted is not a matter of opinion.

And on that note I'm going to end with Brad Friedman's brilliant smack-down and call-out of Chuck Todd at MSNBC . You know, "Mr. Conspiracy Theory Garbage"?

Read the following list (which is just a drop in the e-vote-fraud bucket) and decide for yourself whether American voters have anything to worry about.

BRAD FRIEDMAN CALLS CHUCK TODD TO THE MAT!

Friedman writes:

To misinform your 272,035 Twitter followers, not to mention your millions of viewers on television, that concerns about oft-failed, easily-manipulated electronic voting and tabulation systems are little more than "conspiracies' which "belong in the same category as the Trump birther garbage' is an extraordinary disservice to your readers, your viewers and the U.S. electorate as a whole.

They deserve a much better understanding of our electoral system from someone such as yourself, who is relied upon by so many as an expert in these matters.

Again, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss these concerns with you on your Daily Rundown show on MSNBC any time. If, in fact, you are correct, that these concerns are little more than 'conspiracy garbage', you will do the electorate a great service by having me on, and putting me in my place once and for all by explaining why."

[Friedman requests that Todd answer the following questions]

" Was it 'conspiracy garbage' when paper ballot optical-scan tabulators made by Sequoia Voting Systems in Palm Beach County declared incorrect results of three different races last March , including declaring two losing candidates to be the "winners"?
