Basically, just because many current implementations of electronic voting are failures, don't blame the concept of electronic voting. As the polulation grows, electronic voting has the potential to make voting more accessible, fair and efficient. Paper voting does not.

You can cheat using either paper voting or electronic voting.

Just because you can cheat in any particular system does not make it undemocratic.

Indeed. It is like Pascal's Wager.

The downside of wearing are:
1) The child receives early training on how to be an electronically emprisoned parolee
2) The child grows up as a prisoner
3) The child grows up without trust
4) The child learns that activities with no pay-off but that costs a lot of energy end effort are good, perpetuating the faulty logic of Pascal's Wager that made a prisoner of people like you.

- All cars do not consume fuel at the same mileage ratio
- Fuel efficiency cannot be "promoted". Cars use fuel according to the laws of physics. The average car owner cannot improve the car's fuel efficiency, only the car manufacturer can do that. All cars cannot be replaced because they are not fuel/tax efficient.
