epresentative Mark Finchem, 11th Legislative District of Arizona, on Victory Channel's America Stands yesterday:
What we're seeing, folks, is the rise of the American oligarchy — and if you've got money, you can buy the government. It didn't used to be that way. It used to be you actually had a vote. But when we moved away from the counting of paper ballots, and moved into an era of electronic counting, we saw the opportunity to use automation to speed the process up. Alright, that's a noble pursuit — a virtuous pursuit. But when we moved from tablutation to calculation, that's the day that we lost our Republic. We no longer have, in my opinion, a free and fair election.
