Please no more American election posts ever again (and that includes the EFF).
One, it's in violation of the list charter. This is not a list for the discussion of the relative merits of the
political parties of the USA.
Two, it's not something that anyone on this list can directly affect, unless they are American then they can deal with
their elected representatives.
Three, it bears no relevance to computer security. Granted it's about putting excessive trust in computerised systems,
but that's an issue that's way outside the purpose of this list.
