There's a reason that we shouldn't trust our politicians, and THIS is it, right here. According to the article, it is COMMON practice for legislators to

  • rig voting machines to automatically vote for them, regardless of what the vote is for.
  • allow OTHER legislators who are present to vote on their behalf.
  • not commit hari-kari when exposed.*
*Well, ok - that last one is mine. What I don't uderstand is why these people have not been fired, ousted, sued, beaten, tarred and feathered, etc??? Is the Democratic process such a fucking joke that even those who make our laws don't even bother to have the decency of keeping up the image that they're thinking about what laws they pass?!?! The article says these practices may skew the voting record! It doesn't just skew it! It means that nobody is behind the wheel. This is unbelievable, and completely reprehensible. I'm glad that I don't live in Pennsylvania, but I have to wonder if the same problem isn't going on right here in the great state of Virginia where I live, or in the Federal Government.
