24. welcome to DU "United Voters" and please do tell us more...
First, you clearly don't know Ellen Theisen or the work she has done.

Second, more of your attack:

"WYVBC, what's this about your state North Carolina somehow having to get new machines if the bill passes? So it sounds like you are ready to screw the rest of the country over to get these machines or not get them... whatever, who cares

Third. UnitedVoters, if you had read my statements, you would see that I stated I am
"ambivalent" about the Holt bill.

Perhaps you don't know what ambivalent means so lets post the definition -

Main Entry: ambivalence
Pronunciation: \am-ˈbi-və-lən(t)s\
Function: noun
Etymology: International Scientific Vocabulary
Date: 1918
1: simultaneous and contradictory attitudes or feelings (as attraction and repulsion) toward an object, person, or action
2 a: continual fluctuation (as between one thing and its opposite) b: uncertainty as to which approach to follow
ambivalent \-lənt\ adjective
ambivalently adverb

Fourth, a good activist doesn't stop being a good activist.

Which accomplishment of mine would you try to tarnish?
creating a grassroots organization?
getting legislation drafted, introduced and passed?
fighting special interest groups lobbyists, including the NCACC?
launching a 100 county push for paper ballot/optical scan?
beating Diebold in Court?
By the way, we modeled our state legislation on an earlier Holt bill.

And after the paper ballot law,
passing legislation to improve post election audits
passing legislation to eliminate the "no match no vote" rule?

So "UnitedVoters", by being ambivalent about the Holt bill, how does that negate the above?
