Coincidence? Australia Able To Vote Out Pro-Bush PM Howard, And Their E-Vote Machine Software Is Not Secret Like U.S. E-Vote Software!

(Ousted Australian PM Howard, and PM-elect Rudd)

When Australia designed their electronic voting machines, they chose to make the software running their system completely open to public scrutiny...even though it was made by a private company. The code is posted on the internet for anyone to see and scrutinze. It also runs on open-source Linux software that is free to anyone on the internet.

In the U.S., voting systems have proprietary, secret software written by private companies...and we are not allowed to see it!

We say we're trying to spread democracy around the world, and here we are voting on e-vote machines made by private corporations running secret software we, the voting public, are not allowed to see! Funny, how Australia was able to oust pro-Bush PM Howard, and their electronic voting machine software is transparent for all of their citizens to see on the internet!
