Hi, Ken: Sounds like you're a good candidate for the "secret research"
door-in-order-to-control-would-be-terrorists issue. :)
Just because we're a country that is being controlled by fiat through
executive orders, rather than congressional legislation, I don't think
we should overreact, here. After all, the Help America Vote Act enacted
in October of 2002, specifically calls for suspending paper ballots and
public scrutiny of election results until 2006. At that time, we can
have our paper ballots back, and public scrutiny if we want. Of course,
Bush and gang will have everything in place for the shift to a Republic,
as it should be [they think].
