Speaking of which, I would think the U.S. presidential election
choice would be a difficult one for an Extropian. On the one
hand, you have the obvious ZOG-type problems with Gore, but on
the other hand, you have, with Bush, not just the potential for
expanded police powers (which doesn't bother me too much), but
also the possibility of severe restrictions in stem cell
research -- and not just the federal funding thereof.
