Election 2008: Do the right thing

Posted by Zeh Fernando on 8/February/2008 at 10:16

I don’t live in the United States and obviously I don’t vote there, but I believe the decisions of its leader have ramifications on a global scale and, as as many other earthlings do, I hope the best candidate will be picked by voters.

In that vein, I’d like to suggest actual voters to read CNET News’ tech-friendly candidate comparison and see how their candidates stand on a number of different tech- and internet-related topics.

Furthermore, CNET also has a special section for coverage of the 2008 elections. It covers tech-related news about the candidates, and has a number of different links that may help one deciding on a candidate worth a vote.

Well said, Zeh!

I live in Minneapolis, MN, USA, and we had a record turnout for our Democratic caucuses last Tuesday, which went 80% for Obama.

Hopefully our next President won’t be such a world class A%#@#%E! :)

BTW: Thanks so much for all your work with Tweener! Our Flash professors at the U of Minnesota are using it as one of the foundational elements of teaching Actionscript. Just thought you might like to know!

Toby: thanks! And yes, it’s very flattering, thanks for the heads up.

No need to bash our President. It is okay to disagree with him – but show some respect my brother.

Yeh, if any tech people in the US are voting any other way than Obama I am not sure why they are trying to hurt their own industry. I prefer a libertarian but that will never happen in the US. If it comes down to Clinton and McCain, then please Bloomberg run. Probably only Bloomberg or Paul can actually save our financial situation but Obama is the best that is left with a chance. Because the others are not in the devised two party system they will be slim chances. Paul is really a libertarian. Obama!
