Voting machines and the 2012 presidential election

I am reminded of the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 where voters were either discouraged or denied access to voting stations in the South, especially Florida. Votes had to be recounted in many counties, and it turned into a fiasco. The election of 2000 had to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. I am concerned that the GOP wants to win this presidential election badly enough to tamper with voters and vote results, enough to swing the election their way as was done in 2000 and 2004.

Mitt Romney owns a controlling interest in a vote ballot machine manufacturing company, Hart Intercivic, which will be used in at least one battleground state — Ohio. This smells very fishy — downright rotten. Worse yet, votes cast on these machines cannot be monitored or recounted.

What is wrong with this picture? Why are these ballot machines allowed to be used in any election if they cannot be monitored? How is it that there is no law against this?

A candidate should not be allowed to run for any office, who is a major share holder of the company producing the machines that his or her votes will be cast on. This is not democratic. This is despotic, dictatorial, incorrect, inappropriate and just plain wrong.

The name of the book is "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits" by Greg Pallast. Why is this report not in the mainstream media? There should be an investigation and a full report done on the allegations.
