It is not about liberal & conservatives. Nor Republican & Democrat.
It is about the need for open source software in our voting machine
systems. Without that, liberty and the will of the people are too easily
It has been the radical conservatives that have had the shrill over-

ones that accuse others of the very same unacceptable behavior.
Your reaction is uncivilized, and unintelligent. I doubt your thought
processes are any more organized.
