The next time you see somebody trying to revive the long-discredited claims that I was some kind of foreign agent because they don't like what I represent, show them this clip of the NSA's Deputy Director—the man who actually ran that investigation—trash-canning it.
It’s so reflective of how shitty is our discourse that political officials in both parties and media stars feel comfortable asserting evidence-free and false accusations about @Snowden — he works for China/Russia, etc. — that even a top NSA official has renounced.

Contact whoever your legislative representatives are and tell them to oppose electronic voting. It's insecure, unreliable, and not trustworthy, even in its best forms. In some countries you may need to contact your provincial/state/regional/local representatives, in others your national ones.

I'm seriously considering getting rid of phone contracts/sim card. Preaching about privacy but using the cell network on a daily basis feels hypocritical.
