Hacking the vote...NOT

We finally have someone weighing in on this issue who has some expertise. Yeah, its long with a high geek threshold (which I overcame), but it explains things most people don't really understand about computer programs.
Contrary to what the documentary [Hacking Democracy - PBS] implies: Technical vote hacking most likely did NOT occur in the 2000, 2002, 2004, or 2006 elections. Please note that I wrote technical fraud; there were other dirty tricks that the Republicans engaged in which I'll address later.

there was an article on rawstory yesterday. The gist of it was the votes/machines were definitely hacked this time. just not enough to overcome the anger that had developed in the several days immediately preceding the elections.

My guess is the truth is somewhere in between. Hacking did take place, but not enough to be detectable. Thus it didn't really sway the outcome.

Think of it as shoplifting. If you want to you can, but you won't do it if one of the sales staff follows you around. We were watching for fraud this time.

As my profile mentions, I've programmed and nothing programmed is immune to hacking.
