    DDoS democratic election system...

    I recieved the attached text in my mail on April 1st. I just now saw it. I'm assuming it is a April Fools joke... but after reading it... I though some of you hear might like to see it too.

    I know there are several people here who really like political posts... if thats what this is?

    Security Experts, Liability Limited sent it to me.

    I figured as much! I just thought that it was rather interesting...

    I don't know much about the election system or the laws governing it... but sounds like it could work? lol

    Vendor parliaments can prevent this attack by establishing a convenient
    dictatorship or a monarchy, or becoming the 51th state. In the States,
    candidates outside the bipartisan system are usually listed just as
    a harmless prank, and would not be missed.
    This is a great idea!
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    For a joke, some one spent a lot of time and effort on this one! Very interesting reading.
