which we are offered great convenience...but at a cost. We have
become accustomed to giving away privacy and autonomy over and over
again. Technology enchants us. But here is where the price is never
ever worth it: in the process we use to elect our government
representatives. Our only non-violent power as citizens over our
government's actions is, after all, our vote. If the power to put them
into office as well as to remove them when we are dissatisfied is
taken, then what is the incentive for government to pay any attention
to us? We then become virtually helpless.
Voting is different from any other computer transaction that we engage
in. It is incomplete, as we can never follow it as we do with say a
bank deposit. Because of that incomplete nature of casting a vote,
total and complete transparency in the count become essential. Trust,
hope and faith just will not do. What is at stake here is just about
all the money and all the power in the world, and with such
temptation, we may expect vulnerabilities in the system to be
exploited. The only workable election system must be cheat proof.
Jonathan Simon shows how to make it that way in a simpler, cheaper way
than you can imagine.
In this marvelous book, Jonathan Simon points to a way to fix what
remains of our Democracy. Democracy starts with and absolutely
depends on an open and honest system for voting.
Once you take the time to read this eminently readable book, you may
well find that your assessment of our current political system has
changed. Now it becomes clear that right here is where remedy
starts. The system in place used to count our votes can either
sustain democracy, ....or kill it.
Remember, right-wingers don't hesitate to use every dirty trick to distort elections--dark money, purging voter rolls, costly and restrictive ID requirements, and gerrymandering district boundaries. Since they own and control the voting machine companies, and do so with secret proprietary software, would they really hesitate to distort the results? This book shows conclusively that it has been done.
