Voting suggestions

We citizens are the CEOs of this country (USA), so why are our employees not giving us at least monthly reports and why do we not have a direct way of approving or disapproving what they are doing with our money! I really believe we have the technology to accomplish this.

While I’m on the subject of communication, regarding voting machines, which are one part of this process: Josef Stalin said, “The people who cast their votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” Our voting machines should be made operational by a fingerprint (absentee ballots would contain a scaled ink pad for that purpose).

For the citizen who votes via an activated legal machine, the machine would produce a readout showing exclusively the voter’s choice. If the readout is correct the voter would place the readout in a scaled ballot box to be counted at the end of the election as a verification of the voting machines’ totals.
