Just found this..
October 26, 2012 -- as the Presidential campaign winds on, reports have surfaced that members of candidate Mitt Romney's family, through their
investment firms, hold ownership in America's third-largest voting machine company, Hart / Intercivic. Machines from this company are used in
elections in many key swing states including Ohio and Pennsylvania.
See my previous post from Forbes...Can't make this stuff up...Hart Intercivic provides the machines for PA...the machine in the video...Hart
Intercivic was the 11th largest donor to the Romney Campaign...and members of it's Board of Directors were sitting at that dinner table in Boca Raton
when Romney made his famous "47 percent" comments
Sidenote: Touch-screen voting machines are similiar in hardware and software to VLTs...Video Lottery Terminals or Casino Gaming Devices, the same
engineers do both. The point is that it is just a line or two of burried code needed to sway an election, just like Gaming touch-screens are
engineered to payout only Xth percentage of the time. The voting machines can operate perfectly normally for 99% of voters and rig the vote only the
1% percent of the time randomly...spread that over several machines and you win a district, county...state. It's a stats game.

This is quite interesting in my opinion. All of this is really, although I feel that the problem in the video of not being able to select Obama
correctly is nothing more than a systems problem. And I really dislike Romney, so it would be easy for anyone to throw a tantrum about fraud, which
still could be the case...I just doubt it.
Anyway, what I am wondering is if the post I quoted above has anything to do with why Romney did not release his tax returns...At first I thought that
it was possible that he did not want the public to know how much money he made, which is still the likely reason. Then I thought about how Mormons
tithe to their church, and I figured that he was not giving the full amount of his income to his church, thus he did not want to divulge that
information. Now it seems like he may not have wanted to divulge income from a company that was linked, in a huge way, to the voting machines in
Actually, all 3 of these reasons probably made withholding these documents a no-brainer. It would have absolutely ruined any chance he had of winning
this election, which as we now know, was not very big. I underestimated, like he did, the bulk of the Latino vote, which will likely increase a fair
amount by the next election. Thus I foresee the democrats holding the presidency for a long time to come. This will also eventually spill over into
both the House and the Senate, and eventually the era of breaks and incentives for big-businesses will decrease dramatically. IF we can make it until
then. IMO we need democrats in both houses, as this is the only way we are going to get the government to cut these trillions of dollars we are
spending on our military overseas. But it seems that all of the businessmen who are getting richer from the "rebuilding" of locations overseas are
republicans, thus there is GOP support for these actions over there, under the guise of "freedom and democracy." Ya right.
