Seriously dude, the mental gymnastics required to turn everything under the sun into a conspiracy of Russians has got to be exhausting.


This does not appear to be a conspiracy. It appears to be factually correct.

Indeed. You posited that "Russians!", so I replied regarding a large US producer of voting machines that are nation-wide deployed there and have had "problems". You do see how this works, right?

The conspiracy angle here is "Russian investor is invested in election software used in Maryland, so the system is obviously compromised,"

I'm honestly torn here... as an isolationist, I want to agree "Yep, kick all foreigners, investors included. out and lock down the system to prevent any foreign investment." as a realist, I know that won't happen and calls to do so directed at a country we're not presently at war with strike me as a bit dumb.

There has not been integrity in any US election since the first dollar bill was printed and the first lobbyist took it off the press and passed it under the table to the first politician he ran into.

How about this US based company. Scroll down to the Controversies. Still Russians?


Chaning the subject?


It’s not exactly a complicated tactic — any grade-schooler can master the “yeah-well-you-suck-too-so-there” defense.


If the issue is National Election Integrity, as the title suggests, how is discussing rigged voting machines changing the subject?

Welcome to Europe! (Netherlands here) I am not allowed to be in public without a valid state-mandated identity card. It is an offence that can get you fined. You also have to pay for the card, it's 50 euros for 5 years.

In America we have a constitution which guarantees every citizen the right to vote without having to pay a poll tax. It's embarrassing how many forget that little bit and think the left simply don't want voter ID laws. Having to pay for an ID to vote, no matter the cost, is unconstitutional. In the case of free voter ID's making them unreasonably difficult to get isn't much better.

I do not think anyone has said it is obviously compromised.

Perhaps I missed such a statement. Could you link it?

And as a realist it should at least raise an eyebrow for an individual to be invested in such things such as elections systems/servers, considering recent events that have evolved in regards to our elections.

Wow, another leftist thread and its ilk dismantled ☺️


So non-leftists are not in favor of open and transparent elections without interference from outside influenece (business, national, religious...)

So you don't care about accurate elections so long as you feel like a winner. Any principles at all?

Because without being able to trust the veracity of your methods of registration, vote tabulation, system security and a fully (read PAPER) auditable vote trail - you cannot have confidence that the 'results' reflect the WILL OF THE VOTERS.

www.nbcnews.com...

In general, US Intel agencies have used the word "compromised" in virtually all alleged cases of Russian meddling. I'm not going to sit through the OP's hour+ long podcast listening for them to use the word "compromised," if that's the semantical game you're looking to play at.

Clearly you are missing the point if you think this is about the use of the word "compromised".

I want to know where you got the claim about the conspiracy angle.

Who has said "Russian investor is invested in election software used in Maryland, so the system is obviously compromised", or anything similar to that, that would indicate an unfounded conspiracy on their part?

Considering recent events, ownership or connection by Russians to anything related to the US election system is a legitimate cause for concern, or at least worth looking in to. Not conspiracy.

It's not a matter of opinion.

You said: "The conspiracy angle here is "Russian investor is invested in election software used in Maryland, so the system is obviously compromised".

I wanted to know if that was something that was actually being pushed, or if it was something you made up as a form of a straw man.

It appears you made it up.

There are a lot of straw man arguments here. They seem to never die.
