We here on Slashdot tend to be too cynical, too willing to accept the fact that bad laws will be passed and there's nothing we can do about it.

Teddy Roosevelt once said: "A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends upon the character of the user."

Otherwise, we'll all be bystanders as this entire class of legislation is forced upon us.
