Residents of the City of Weatherford,
As I originally expressed during a post-election phone interview with the Weatherford Democrat, again during my Republican election-day precinct convention and during the 2010 Parker County Republican Convention, I completely oppose the use of electronic, programmable voting machines. Questioning the 2010 Weatherford municipal election was not entirely results-based. Average Americans need to understand the simplicity in which these machines can be manipulated, unless of course you trust politicians. Average Americans also need to demand the re-instatement of paper ballots, unless of course you trust politicians. Average Americans need to doubt, distrust and question what your elected officials are telling you. After all, it is the elected officials who LOVE the electronic, programmable, video-game style voting machines.
