In the News "This election won't hinge on technology issues. Just look at prevailing discussions this year at the national level: major candidates have sparred over Iran's nuclear ambitions, the role of government, inane comments on the female body, and to nobody's surprise, the economy. Despite that fact, many decisions will be taken up by the next US president and those in Congress that will affect the world of tech, and by consequence, the real lives of citizens and human beings around the world - from alternative energy, to the use of killer drones, the regulation of wireless spectrum, and policies that aim to control content on the internet. Your chance to vote is just around the corner. Here's what's at stake in tech this election, and how the major candidates could influence our future." Happy voting, American readers. Whatever you pick, please take at least a few minutes to consider that the implications of your choice do not end at the US border.

Looks similar to the situation in France: pretty much every major party seems to have the same neutral to despicable opinion regarding stuff which I care about a lot, only leaving me with smaller parties that have no chance to get elected ("for the sake of honesty") or picking candidates based on stuff which I don't care about.

The larger political parties get, the most shallow their programs seem to become, probably so as to please the largest number.
