No Tex the top 17 Intelligence Agencies including the FBI , CIA and DOJ have found strong and convincing evidence that Russia did in fact hack and influence our 2016 National Elections.

What do they know right ? They're only the smartest and most advanced Law Enforcement and Investigative Agencies in the World.

Ok  so instead of criticism  why don't you provide any ideas on how to resolve this issue, unless you don't think that the Russians actually meddled inthe 2016 elections.


Why don't you?  I didn't start this thread.

You have proof of the Russian hacking? Which party brought it up about that hacking during the campaigns?  You an expert on hacking?

 

Perhaps a better way would be for the Democratic staff to not open phishing emails.

 

And was anything said so far about Russian hacking?  This is about state's voting systems which wouldn't necessarily be hacked by Russians, but perhaps Democrats.

Will Your Vote Be Vulnerable On Election Day?

 

As America heads toward the 2018 midterms, there is an 800-pound gorilla in the voting booth.

 

Despite improvements since Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential race, the U.S. elections infrastructure is vulnerable — and will remain so in November.

 

Throw money at a problem, that's not a problem ?

 


Ok, why don't you describe how our voting system is so vulnerable and what corrective measures will definitely take care of that vulnerability?

 

Maybe throwing several hundred million to security experts would solve the problem, with cost overruns?

Isn't it ironic how the MAGATS will whine, whiz and moan about black people kneeling during the anthem, an anthem that was written during the height of slavery, but see no problem with a long-time US adversary manipulating our elections.

As usual, insults of all sorts, including loyalty to country.  And where have I posted all that? 

 

And what does it have to do with voting systems or what I posted?

 

You have nothing better to offer to the topic than that? 

 

Do you think that any of your posts like that would convince anyone that your opinion is superior to theirs?  It was those type of posts that convinced me that I was running with the wrong crowd here...a crowd that would prefer to demonize others than civilily discuss issues.

So, what is your solution?  Wouldn't the first step be insuring that everyone voting was entitled to vote?  And when using voting machines that there was a paper trail that could be audited?

 

There seems to be some resistance with insuring that every voter is entitled to vote by using positive ID...

 

Who do you want to protect democracy from? 

 

So this is all just changing the subject, the subject is protecting states voting systems, not the obstruction of the polls by Republican voter ID laws or gerrymandering.

 

Who do you want to protect democracy from? 

 

Fraud, even with the Republican obstruction and gerrymandering, voting systems are vulnerable to attack, hacking, fraud.
