Clint,

While I think you're great, and you've offered a lot of good ideas as
well on this list, Ed is right on this one. The secret ballot is more
than a time honored tradition and American law, it protects our
democracy IMO, and it's a waste of time to make proposals that undo our
secret ballot, especially when it would immediately open up voters to
bribery and coercion. Lay off it please. There is plenty else to
discuss here that makes more sense than trying to undo one of the
protections of democracy in the form of secret ballots. What scares me
most is that you might succeed in undoing this protection, not the
practicality that we currently have it.

That said, keep up the good work Clint.

Kathy
