118. Don't be silly! Activism was a result of the radical Bush regime and FL 2000.
If the regime had been more moderate Republican, and the election hadn't been close enough to steal in 2000 (and 2004), no one would give a shit. In fact, that's where we're at right now. We have moderate Dems in power after a not-so-close election, and election reform is a dead issue.

It will take another unpopular regime elected unfairly to get people to wake up about e-vote counting.

Maybe some unlikely implausible upsets in New York after the lever machines are gone and the courts deny the recount requests by the "sore loser" candidates.
