Of course it's political. Because in 2016/17 the people who are highlighting this now weren't remotely concerned. And of course voting machines are not connected to the internet. There are of course election related websites such as voter registration that are so that's the real potential problem.

If you've ever gone to a Def Con convention, they are quite scary. These are the best hackers in the world. Still, this was a closed environment with no security watching the machines. This exercise is the equivalent of hiring bank robbers to secure your bank. They know how to spot vulnerabilities. My cousin wrote a well respected book on cyber security, amazon.com/Network-Security-Ch...36643604, He once said that allowing any computer chip to talk to any other computer chip opens the door to a hacker. Think about how many devices in your home that have computer chips in them, and more are coming out every year. Now they even put computer chips in refrigerators. Voting machines that either allow electronic voting, or that tabulate paper ballots are open to hacking, but if they are not online, then it requires physical access in order to hack them. In this case, all of these hackers were given physical access, which they would not have - unless they got certified as a voting volunteer at a precinct, and even then they would be watched constantly. Still it would take a lot of them to have any meaningful affect on an election. If the machines are connected either hardwired to the internet, or via wifi, all bets are off.

You can run a vote disconnected from the internet. That does not solve all problems of course, but it keeps out hackers and foreign interference.

We COULD have:
Vote in person with verified photo ID, which eliminates voter fraud, on paper ballots which can be verified and never hacked, which eliminates hacking and digital tomfoolery, but noooooooooo.

That helps with actual voting, somewhat (do hanging chads ring a bell?) But the voter registration information is all stored on networked computers.  This was one way the Russians interfered in 2016.

Not hard to have voting machines connect to the net. Just have nefarious person or persons turn the WiFi on, on their cellphone and have just one cell acting as a hotspot. Then auto sync the voting machines to look for and connect to any available WiFi signal.

How is it the dead are regularly resurected long enough to vote? All these years, we've been told of only one being resurected from the grave? indecision

Religion AND politics!

The LOCKDOWN clock starts now!

Politics is a GREAT example of the old adage about "All people are scoundrels, except me and thee; andof late, I have begun to wonder about thee!"

I heard a joke in 1963, where a young child was crying, because he missed his daddy, who had died a year or so earlier.

The punch line was

"....but when he came back from Heaven to help re-elect Mayor D****, he didn't even stop by the house!"
