Hardware, Embedded Systems No matter where you look these days, there's a profound sense here in the west that the people no longer having any tangible control over what our governments do. Sure, we are allowed to vote every once in a while, but effectively, most of our countries are governed by backroom deals and corporate interests. If matters really do get out of hand, how do we fight this? Well, with technology of course!

Ron Paul is the only guy in the States that is worth voting for in this upcoming presidential election.... We do have a choice here in America, Ron paul is that choice. Sorry, I don't mean to sound like a campaign ad, but RP really is one of the only politicians that is truly honest and sticks to his principals, and his principals are that of freedom and not corrupted by coorporate interests.
