RUNNING AN “ELECTION” ON CLOSED-SOURCE VENEZUELAN VOTING SOFTWARE: That voting machine software in America is not open source and auditable is such a preposterously obvious security and hacking risk that the only reasonable conclusion is that it’s meant to be insecure and hackable. There is no commercial value in closed source voting software (it’s the machines themselves they’re selling; as software goes, it is trivial and nobody wants weird innovations or updates) unless part of the value proposition is that the vote can be rigged. The media and politicians can gaslight us all they want on this, but something this “stupid” doesn’t happen accidentally, even today and with our incompetent ruling class.
