The awkward American election dance
has now been more than laughable.
The votes in some states are now to be
re-counted by hand
for no more apparent a reason
than the whim of a losing candidate,
who admits that she wants a re-count
just to prove that anybody can demand a re-count.
She raised the money to pay for the re-count,
money which is more than enough to pay for the re-count.
Question is, who gets the surplus of the money
It is improbable that the vote tally could be hacked.
Thereby it is improbable that the results would be wrong.
To change the election results, the “hacking”
should be undertaken federally where the results would be final
and there would be a single computer to hack.
Tampering , if any, should have been done locally,
and in all the voting sites.
This would be impossible to do because
the large number of voting terminal machines
make hacking prohibitive.
Furthermore, inspectors for both parties
should be present to oversee the voting
and the final count within the precinct.
These inspectors should sign
for the validity of the count.
Also, the manufacturers of these terminals
do make final extensive tests for accuracy
and thereafter the machines are locked.
Otherwise, the manufacturers of the terminals
would be sued for vote tampering.
If tampering is done by changing electronic parts,
then further testing of the terminals would prove
that it has been done so.
It does take common sense
which sore losers do disregard.
