I think there are plenty of Libertarians who think that Romney sucks. If you ask them what their biggest complaints are with Obama, they sound a lot like those on the left (drones, undeclared wars, etc.). Those folks weren't too fond of Bush either (drones, undeclared and really stupid wars, etc.).

In general, though, my guess is that while there are plenty of Libertarians in the tech field, they are outnumbered by Progressives. It is just that their numbers in the tech field are much higher than in most other fields.

"a vote for Romney is a vote for the worst of AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast"

Speaking of dystopia... "Unleashing" American corporations, like the Republicans propose (and they really mean the largest corporations, because that's whose lobbyists pull their strings) would lead us closer to some "Blade Runner"-esque nightmare of concentrated wealth and power, with rot, decay and limited prospects for everyone else.

Was going to check out the Verge, however..

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.


Democrats are forever claiming that republicans are in the employ of special interests, and many believe them however it is quite easy to prove that it is the Democrats who will support one technology or the other but somehow make it look like their self interested choices are done with the countenance of Mother Teresa.

Hence you find that battery cars are the salvation of the world, but fuel cells cars are not..yet it is GEs Jeff Immelt whose company would stand to gain from that technology who has been an Obama advisor for the past few years.
