Why would the Russians hack in favor of Trump? I’ve never understood the logic behind this. Think back to when Regan was president. Not long after he left the White House, a Russian ambassador was asked what past president Russia feared most? The immediate response was: Regan. When questioned why, he said, “Because the Kremlin knew he’d push the bottom.” If the Russians feared Regan, shouldn’t they fear Trump even more? Didn’t his presidential speeches suggest hawkish, possibly violent behavior? When you start telling people to “punch that guy in the mouth” (protestor, mild-mannered, only holding a sign), doesn’t that suggest he’s a natural button-pusher? Either Russia has forgotten its history, or they want the button pushed. If that’s the case, I’d look for dark clouds ahead. Oh, and I do agree with paper balloting. I just wonder, though (and you’re the expert). Can’t the scanning systems be hacked?
