Would it be too much of a hassle if we switched back to pen-and-paper voting? :P


It wouldn't be a hassle at all, and in fact, most other modern democracies do use hand-counted paper ballots. But the political establishment (both Democrats and Republicans) would never want to get rid of a voting system that maintains their power.

What, do the USA have fully-electronic voting? Wow. In France it's still paper ballots and hand-counting. Also, the catch is that the USA count way more inhabitants than other European democracies.

and it's still possible to rig elections, no matter whether you vote by fancypants voting computers or by paper ballots or by shitting in the ballot box


anyway, we see the Right mindset and how nice it is.

you're poor? your own fault. the poor are poor because they want it. true winners always aim at becoming millionaires.

you're sick? your own fault, you're irresponsible.

you have no money? you don't deserve to live, because capital is the only and true thing that defines your value as a human being.


which would mean that Trump is one of the best persons you can find. obviously.

and Mark Zuckerberg. and Bill Gates. etc.

Yes; with few exceptions, all votes in US elections are counted by computers: they're either cast and counted on touchscreens, or cast on paper ballots that are counted by optical scanners. I've heard the argument that the US population size would make hand counting more difficult, but that's not really the case: each individual voting precinct can hand-count in parallel and have the results ready within a reasonable time.

That's true, but it's nearly impossible to systematically rig elections without computer counting. The level of coordination would most likely require too many people to be feasible. (That's also why "voter fraud" is a non-issue - you generally can't organize a sufficient number of illegal voters to swing an election) Computer code is inherently replicable and centralized, which allows election fraud to be employed across the entire country by a small group of people.

Trump has banned transgender people from serving in the military. I'm speechless. This is disgusting.

That's absurdly ridiculous and almost funny. Each day we see the real differece between the two douches who candidated for the White House last year : they were both horrible but one of them lacks a functional adult brain.

I on the other hand find it to be a shame, a real shame. And dangerous too! I mean not only does this mean more gender inequality, but we are depriving ourselves of protection just because you wanted to switch genders. Not that I think there's anything to really be defended from but you get the idea. :(

Is swearing like, not allowed here or something.

Anyways yeah this whole transgender ban thing is bullshit, and the only way I'm coping with all the idiots in the white house is by binge watching The Daily Show and Last Week Tonight.

Swearing is not not allowed, it's just not recommended because we have some younger users.

Am I saying this right?

no swearing allowed on this great christian forum

You're right. We can swear with no punishments, but it might negatively affect the younger ones, as you said. We could put rules against swearing, but that isn't a very good idea.

Yeah, after all, it's not like they had come to this website in the first place.

BACK TO TOPIC.

So anyway...This sounds sad and dangerous, too. Yeah.

this board isn't kindergarten.


as for younger kids:
a) they probably shouldn't be on this board
b) it's better if kids know badwords and know not to spout them at random and why, than if they're kept into ignorance to "protect" them


re: Trump

yeah, he's a bigot, film at eleven

he claims it would be too much medical expenses for the military. yeah he's not a big fan of healthcare either.


if there's anything interesting to this era, it's politics getting really clear, and radicalization resulting from that.

although we still have a bunch of "<direct action> is stupid and childish! you should get more involved politically and do <thing that is known not to work>". yeah, as if asking nicely would put an end to global warming.

and radicalization, of course, works both ways, towards far-Left but also towards far-Right.

so in the end this is kind of a mess, but it's interesting times to live.

you may have already heard of it, but pretty bad shit has been happening in Charlottesville

basically all sorts of fascists united there and were met with strong resistance, you can guess it didn't end well

this kind of shit can lead to civil war if it keeps happening
