40. Showing the Facts

You demand of the poster: "If your claim iscorrect then show the facts."

May I ask a simple question. If the inner workings of the computer (what programs are running there, whether it gives an accurate count, who programs it, who updates it or hacks it or rigs it, etc.) are completely off limits to any impartial outside entity, what facts are you talking about? It's possible to give many cases where the exit polls didn't jibe with the so-called results. In fact, nowadays nearly all elections deviate from the unadjusted exit poll numbers and nearly always in a "red" direction.

I'm sure the poster would give the "facts" that you demand IF IT WAS POSSIBLE TO GIVE THESE FACTS. The whole point of the argument is that IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE THE FACTS ABOUT ANY ELECTION. THE VOTE COUNTING ON ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES IS UNVERIFIABLE!

Can you understand that?
