How could this be? Could it have anything to do with the fact that the technicians for the voting machines are members of the SEIU, the Service Employees International Union? The same Union gave over $60 million to the Democrat Party in 2008. The head of that Union, Andy Stern, was the most frequent visitor to the White House in 2009. He is well known for having said, "'Workers of the World Unite'? It's no longer a slogan. It's the way we need to do our work'" and "[If we can't succeed by] using the power of persuasion, we'll use the persuasion of power."
The SEIU is the largest Public Employee Union in this country. They represent government employees. Therefore, they have a direct interest in encouraging the expansion of government power, spending, corruption. They have way too much power, as evidenced by the fact that they've managed to block the people's attempts to lower their own tax rates as well as cut their own spending, in states like Oregon in 2009, for instance. When you have a government run by Unions, you are dealing with a government structural model that, at its core, is the same as the Soviet government's structure.
Whatever your political beliefs are, please tell me why we should ever allow a group that has a strong alliance with 1 of our 2 major parties, and an aggressive interest in boosting that party, to be the technicians for the machines with which we cast our votes?
