A PLAN FOR REESTABLISHING POLITICAL EQUILIBRIUM.
Nothing is more dangerous than one political party being in control of everything as is the situation today. In the past we have had a relatively balanced government where neither party had total control of all branches of power. But the last election upset that balance making it possible for the current insanity to reign. So what can we do as citizens to correct the current situation.
First we need to vote entirely Republican in the next two elections. Next, once we have established a balance between political parties, every voter should split his votes between parties.
But this alone is not enough. The bureaucrats have party loyalties that can & have adversely impacted fair elections. The Democrats have no problem endorsing affirmative action based upon skin color. SO WHY NOT HAVE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION BASED UPON POLITICAL LOYALTY WHEN IT COMES TO GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT THAT ASSURES A 50-50 SPLIT POLITICALLY IN THE BUREAUCRACY.
If we are ever to secure our form of government for future generations, this must be done. You know this is the truth.
A PLAN FOR SECURE VOTING
- LIMITED INTERNET CONNECTION:
Let me begin by saying, under no circumstances should the voter registration system be directly connected to the web or internet. However, post election voter ballot verification via the web/internet should be possible & safe.
With respect to manual ballot processing, it would seem the most efficient method would be an assembly line, where each station records the vote on each specific ballot issue. But then machine reading and issue separation and accumulation is more expedient. So when using a machine vote counting system, under no circumstances should the machine be connected to the internet. To report results, every polling center should have a direct T1 line to the state office. Either that or a dial-in system should be used.
- MAIL-IN BALLOT PROCESSING:
Now to continue on, lets see, you allow mail-in votes to come in and pile up for a entire month without counting them, and then you have in-person voting on election day which is required to be counted before all those piled up mailed in ballots. WELL DAAA, WHAT COULD GO WRONG HERE? WHY??? Why are the mail in votes not counted as they come in? And don’t tell me its more conducive to fraud, because it is less conducive to fraud.
Paper mail-in ballots for remote voting. Not a good solution. Unrealistic. Drop boxes, ballot harvesting and ranked-choice voting should not be allowed. With respect to signature verification of mail in ballots, it is absolutely asinine to wait to do that after polls have closed. At least do signature verification & start counting mail in ballots as they are received. And by no means allow ballots to be received after the in person polls have closed. Certainly, there is no excuse for not having the total count of the number of received ballots within an hour after the polls have closed. So there is no reason to not have a reliable projection after the received ballot count has been determined.
- REAL DIAL-IN VOTING:
But do away with paper mail in and drop boxes. Go direct call in voting with same day in person. I cant believe that, after the fiasco of 2020, nobody has developed a phone dial in voting system where voters can validate their ballot after its been counted. If you can call your bank and validate transactions, then there is absolutely no reason the same cant be done with voting.
Why phone and not the web? POTS, the “plain old telephone system” used(s) point-to-point circuit switched networking, not packet switching which is the internet. It is estimated that 40% of the citizens sill have land lines which may or may not be connected to a circuit switched network. However, long haul telephone connections have been or are being upgraded to digital transmission which is the internet . So it is difficult to avoid the internet. But the connections are still basically point-to-point & not accessible via the web with one exception, ie, voice-over-ip providers.
The web is a client server based network that uses internet connected domain name servers and is relatively less secure than a straight point-to-point connection. Furthermore, cloud based services are web based & to be avoided. This means your real telephone service provider is safer than a virtual phone provider that uses voice-over-ip.
Now all this may be well and good, but there is one thing to recognize when it comes to the internet and the digitizing of voice transmission. Unlike circuit switched networks, digital networks make it much easier to compress communications store them in files. So what you say over the phone today can be listened to years from now by those running the phone systems. The only real way to protect your communication is via encryption.
