94. You got it right.. I was annoyed at how fast HAVA was passed
It was "the other shoe" dropping after 2000. The repubes knew that we "knew" they stole the election and would be EAGER to vote for election reform, and they were only too happy to oblige us.. So just like a poisoned patient asking for help, they generously gave us more "medicine"..)(the same poison they had been giving us all along).. Our short-sighted legislators puffed out their chests and darned near dislocated their shoulders from patting themselves on the back. The states greedily scarfed up all the "time-limited" money they were offered to buy up those black boxes, and the BriarPatch Voting System was loved by one and all...(except for the candidates who get cheated out of their hard-won elections)..

This is the same method that worked "so well" during the post 9-11 panic. The Patriot Act was another "quickie" that has hurt the US longterm.

In fact we can almost predict just how bad the legislation is by the breakneck speed with which it's rammed down our throats. Like Mom always said when we have to take icky medicine.."Swallow it FAST, and it's easier to take"..
