Guest Blogged by John Gideon of The voting news today has been dominated, not by tomorrow's primary news, but by an attempted takeover of Diebold by the military industrial complex in the form of United Technologies which also owns Sikorsky Helicopter and jet-engine maker, Pratt and Whitney. Diebold received the offer for takeover and has rejected it so far. Remember Dwight Eisenhower's warning: "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."...
