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.

Ah! Another libertarian? I really wish we could shake up the 2 party system in place. I vote for libertarians locally whenever I get the chance, but... they rarely, if ever, make it into office. It HAS to be a democrat or republican... anyone else are crazy fringe politicians... (or at least that seems to be the mindset).

Sometimes it all feels hopeless.

I am indeed. ;)

I do what I can as well, but any politician that isn't a Republican is classified as being part of the crazy fringe here in Oklahoma.

I feel you, but we have to keep speaking up to keep from getting over looked.
