Will it all come down to Florida again?

  1. Sure hope they can get things running smoothly there this time around ! It would be an embarrassment to the country (again) if this election got all out of whack down there yet again. And believe me, the world will be watching !


    Soooooooo.... perhaps this might be a viable option/alternative ? :chuckle

    I wonder if they will go for computers this time? No paper trail, and you can program the vote beforehand...

    Jnette found a voting system anyone can understand.

    Of course, after being a nurse, I'm sure there is someone out there who will manage to muck it up.

    Gosh, that is so true. :chuckle

    I've voted with the punch card system since I started voting and it ain't that difficult.

    We just started with computers and I have to say it is very easy but I long for the days of punch cards . . . . like Don says, no way to program something beforehand. Just toss out the cards with hanging chads . . .

    I always checked my cards for hanging chads and never found one.

    jnette...that's very cute!

    I find it a little ridiculous that in this day and age voting isn't SIMPLE. There should be more uniformity and it should be done in a way that is easily spelled out for every American.

    Gosh, how much simpler can you get than using a metal pin to punch out a circle? Just make sure to punch the little pin all the way through the little circle.

    I guess counting them can be hard though . . .I keep seeing that one guy with the magnifying glass bending over to look under the card to make sure there was no hanging chad. . . . . gosh that was funny.

    Maybe Jnette's idea has merit . . . .

    jnette's idea was circulated in email the year bush won the election. it's not new...but sure seems to have merit to me too. too bad stupid people can vote,really. imagine, someone too stupid to handle a punch card system is voting our LEADERSHIP FOR 2 to 4 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ZOINKS!
