I know that if you look at it from a distance, linux appears to be "the people's"; however, a closer inspection show's it to be "the individual's". It is the individual developers that make the choice to release her/his code under a specific license. It is out of respect of an individual's rights that we use her/his code. Linux is made up of thousands of individuals, and rarely communal groups as "the people" implies.

Linux (GPL) is for individual liberty (republican), where BSD is more for group rights (democrats).

Don't confuse Republicans with the Neo-cons that are impersonating Republicans (Bush/Cheney administration).

EDIT: I consider Romney a Neo-con.
