From Linux to the Republican party...

"Thanks for the laugh I haven't read anything more absurd in weeks."

I see you're amused, but you fail to state to absurdity. I obvisously don't see it, as I made the statement.

Please elaborate so that I can point out the folly of your logic. Or rather maybe you'll make an insightful remark?

I think that with the proper definition of "republican", my point is valid. It is my opinion that the title of republican has been coopted by the "neocons" and the religious right.

The GPL license is a grant of the author to release his copyright to the general public in return for any "improvements" to be given back. This emphasizes the individual's rights - a "republican" belief.

The BSD license gives the rights to the code away. This is democratic (socialist) in nature.

So without you expounding upon that which you find humour in, I consider you trolling.
