Protest and Voting

Doubts about our fair representation in government are not just "short-term damage" done to voting machine manufacturers which can be countered by a PR campaign! On the other hand, the article seems to indicate that (at least some) voting machine manufacturers are starting to take this Verified Voting thing seriously, and perhaps will respond by actually allowing voter-verifiable election systems. Now if only our local governments will act promptly to require such machines!

Concurrent with this glimpse of light, however, is a reminder that we are losing our right to peaceably assemble and our free speech rights as well. (Voting machine manufacturer Diebold is in on the free speech suppression too.) Read and be enlightened.
