How fascist is HAVA?
I don't think I've seen this discussed previously and it really just hit me today...amid myriad indications of fascism's creep even back in 2002, HAVA is a fantastic, sensational, maniacally evil bit of legislation that connects government and business in a way that is a hallmark of fascism...I mean really, is HAVA anything more than a strong arm tactic of the federal government, forcing local governments on the county level to do business with partisan corporations?...the disabled voters HAVA purports to support are just another scapegoat like Osama, Saddam, commies, gypsies or any other minority group...scapegoating, of course, is another of fascism's hallmark traits as are bogus elections.

1. HAVA is brilliant.

They set it up (showed us a bad election) in 2000, and crafted it to make things infinitely worse.

3. RFK JR says
HAVA is not the "help america vote act," it is the "help america buy diebold voting machines act"

that spells it out pretty clearly.

4. HAVA is the
"enforcer" or the "strong arm" for getting ES&S and Diebold Sequia in to place. But I believe that the whole criminal empire including HAVA is slowly crumblng, Like Ion Sanchez said "we caught multi billion dollar corporations, and they don't like it"

5. While we are on this subject
Doesn't HAVA require atleast one DRE for the disabled voters, couldn't that wipe out alot of votes, if they were to tell the voters that didn't have a disability that they could go ahead and use the DRE, instead of waiting in line?

6. HAVA does NOT require DREs
Big misconception. Vote-PAD is a suitable alternative to meet the disability requirements and it may just be the thing that spares my county from Diebold TSx machines.
