9. "Holt" is the bully on a public playground
In the past the Holt crew has forced everyone to play in a small corner of the public playground. We are so used to playing in that corner that when Holt and his cronies mention that they are willing to give us a little extra playground. Some of us are willing to go along with him and his ilk just to get the extra space, even though every one playing in that small corner knows that we should take the whole public playgroung back. Any "ballot counting machine," thats paperless or otherwise keeps us in that corner and the bullies in charge.

Every one in DU/ER knows we need hand counted paper ballots at the polling place, anything less is a meaningless fight to get out of the corner.


Im looking forward to reading the article.
