Thanks for the Memory to TacJammer:
When I read this essay at Eject! Eject! Eject! I was immediately reminded of the quote attributed to George Orwell:
"We sleep peacefully in our beds simply because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence upon those who would do us harm."
Read it. It really should be required reading before entering the voting booth on November 2nd. It actually choked me up. An excellent essay.
