Did you ever notice.... 

We live in an age technological marvels. We have satellites than can read the license number of a car from space. We've sent machines to explore far away planets and send back pictures and data. The Hubble Telescope opened up space with spectacular pictures. Super-computers can keep track of every call made in these here United States. Communications can be monitored by sophisticated equipment that baffles the mind. Our televisions are high definition. TIVO can store programs allowing us to stop viewing mid-stream and resume where we left off. Home computers can play and record video, have massive amounts of memory and unprecedented computing power at a very low price. Our cars, our banks, our government depends on the reliability of the electronic marvels in our every day life. So why can't any of these companies, like Diebold, make eletronic voting machines that work properly, leave a paper trail and are tamper resistant?
