WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 16: African American Civil War reenactors march down Pennsylvania Avenue during the Emancipation Day parade April 16, 2014 in Washington, DC. A public holiday in nation's capital, April 16, 1862, is the date President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act for the release of certain persons held to service or labor in the District of Columbia.

US SUPREME COURT SHOULD SUGGEST TO CONGRESS A LAW ALLOWING VOTING BY COMPUTER,SMARTPHONE, ETC.


How long will we  be condemned to the states’ mishandling of elections, irregularities and voter suppression, etc.,  which foster a burden on the people?  The Supreme Court is reviewing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  47 years of these laws have not giving us elections that free from fraud, suspected criminal activity, etc., all of which embarrass the one country other countries invite in to observes their elections for irregularities.  Our latest election is over and the world has seen the truth of voting in America.  They see the unfair laws, long lines,lack of polling places and ballots, etc.  They see the racism they would suffer should they immigrate to the US.  They see that the “American Dream” might be more myth than fact. Are we going to just sit on our couches and take it?  We vote for senators and representatives to go to Washington and improve our lot.  Yes, they have been doing little of that lately.  But, we are partly to blame if we do not let them know how we feel about the job they are doing…or not.

I hope that the Supreme Court will suggest that Congress will devise a federal election system. And, one which allows 21st Century technology: Voting by home computers and smartphones.  Today, I pay my bills by computer, order my food by computer, pay my taxes by computer, renew my car registration by computer, make appointments by computer…  Get the message? VOTERS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO STAND IN LINES FROM 4 TO 5 HOURS (OR LONGER) AND THEN HAVE TO FILL OUT A 12 PAGE BALLOT!  Computerized voting can be safe,  secure and efficient.  I mean, do we believe in high-tech, or not?  Congress should fully embrace the 21st Century, give us this voting system and end the national disgrace.  —By GoodOleWoody
