diebold is worse than suss. diebold and other commercial US voting
machines have so many security holes in them that it goes way beyond
mere incompetence - they could only have been designed deliberately that

to summarise:

they're in power, and they're going to make sure they stay in power from
now on, even after the australian public realise just how much they've
screwed themselves. whatever it takes. and e-voting is far easier to
manipulate in bulk than the current paper ballot system.

and they're using the same "voter fraud" lies that they used this
election to try to disenfranchise voters, and the last election. the
same kind of likes that have been used very successfully in the US for
decades to keep poor, non-anglo, and non-white people from voting.
