Obligatory xkcd; as a programmer I completely agree.

I wouldn't say "hack-proof" but maybe more "hack-resistant". After midterms there were a lot of videos of Dems trucking in boxes of ballots in Broward county from who knows where. So you know, whether there's anything nefarious there, who's to say? But that kind of thing is certainly possible.

I favor a hybrid approach. All paper ballots and keep them for the record, but count and record them by machine to make sure the same paper isn't being passed around multiple polling locations.

Just as another example of problems with paper ballots, in France a huge number of Marine Le Pen ballots were delivered torn (invalid by French law). But, much like the yellow vest protests, there was virtually no coverage on it at all in mainsteam media.

I wouldn't call that hacking. That's ballot box tampering.

Same result whatever you wanna call it.

Well, you still have Serco printing the blank ballots, meaning they can always produce, as needed, after one sides' votes are already counted.

Some Americans may have thought that tyranny would never come to the US because the rich, celebrities, media, politicians, and American people would resist.

Who would have thought that the rich would loot the country by getting bailouts and subsidies while being the ones conspiring and building the police state by paying actors, singers, and atheletes to distract Americans with bread and circuses, using reporters to push propaganda, real crises, and false flags, and buying off and corrupting politicians with campaign donations and cushy job promises to start wars, import refugees that weaken and divide the US, drive up the debt, make laws that enslave Americans, and throw crumbs to pacify the 99% in the form of food stamps, Obamacare, Obamaphones, and public housing?

The destruction of the USA is nearly complete.
