91. I agree with you. I'm just saying it is wrong to say "making a bad system worse"
it would be more correct to say "making a bad system a little better, but still not good enough."

we still have a ton of DRES out there and we have to get rid of them. We need 100% voter verified paper ballots and we need good audits. I think we agree on that.

I'm willing to take a step by step approach, especially if the alternative is doing NOTHING. Tobi seems to think doing NOTHING is better than making some improvements. That's pure bullcrap in my book.

Tobi and her entourage are partly responsible for ambushing legislation that could have ensured we would have all paper ballots aready, today, as we speak. I'm very tired of the "100% HCPB or DIE" attitude to tell you the truth. It is preventing meaningful steps from being taken.

100% paper ballots and less-than-perfect audits on every election is better than 50% DREs and no audits. Anyone who argues otherwise has lost their sense of reason.
