Disturbing Truth
17 November 2006 | by patrick_j_durkin_iiiSee all my reviews

Please watch this and think about how your "vote" might go... This documentary is an eye opener to the corruption of what is supposed to be a "pure" given right of our vote and voice to be heard. But when your voice (vote) can be manipulated, then democracy is not there. This movie shows how there are three companies who provide these machines and all the so called security and accuracy they have. But the truth is shown that these machines can easily be tampered with. I just heard that there are devices you can get so that when you go up to the computer and vote you can manipulate the system as you vote. We have chosen this high tech system which leaves no paper trail to the truth.
