Guarding the Custodians

That's my interpretation of the old Latin phrase about who keeps an eye on the bosses. It's Friday, so I won't look it up.

Anyway, I like the recount campaign in New Hampshire, paid by the Dennis Kucinich campaign. Every election should have demands for a recount until the election system is finally made safe, transparent and difficult to tamper. Yes, the recounts are a pain in the butt, yes, they take money and time. But this is one of those areas where all that is necessary.

If we can't guarantee that votes are delivered as they were intended then we have no democracy.
