INTRO: Stop the Ballot Madness! Today's US electronic vote system, used in Trump v. Biden, including swing states, was originally designed, funded and deployed in communist Venezuela. Co-owned by the Venezuelan government and state-owned Bitza software. CIA reported in first use, Smartmatic falsified an election for dictator Hugo Chavez to stymie a recall. Says NY Times: “Smartmatic was a little-known firm with no experience in voting technology before it was chosen by the Venezuelan authorities to replace the country’s elections machinery ahead of a contentious referendum that confirmed Mr. Chávez as president in August 2004.” Does Smartmatic still sabotage elections?
