as a US citizen I (and many others, particularly those involved in
freedom-loving groups like FSF, EFF, FLOSS projects, etc.) do not like
our policies either but the masses here are less interested in freedom
these days. So I understand those objections and can only hope that the
next leader, with our insisting, will travel back on the road to sanity
and freedom. Hope to see any many debianites as possible.
