Voting Faux Pas, Blunders, and Lies - Part 2

More of my thoughts and rants on the U.S. Voting System.
When Iraq had it's first real voting election after the U.S. toppled Saddam, we instituted a system of the 'purple thumb.' In addition voting polls were open for 3-days giving every Iraqi time to vote.
Now if we think this is a good idea for the Iraqi's why in the hell don't we use it here?

Oh, before you ask, the 'Purple Thumb' is used after you vote. They make you place your thumb on an ink pad with purple ink, this prevents you from voting more than once. The ink doesn't wash off, and naturally wears off in about 7-days.

Dwell on this for awhile, comment if you can!
