There are too many propositions to go through each one. And then there are the candidates, who I don't think any of the parties can legitimately say they have any principals based on their "choices". But they all have one thing in common. They all encompass the notion that it is okay to initiate the use of force against a group of people based on their own personal opinion.

- Forcing male porn actors to wear condoms.
- Outlawing the possession and use of a useful and natural narcotic.
- Severely restricting accessibility to ammunition for self-defense or otherwise.
- Extracting wealth from certain groups because they're wealthier or for performing certain actions.
- Outright banning of products or extracting wealth from business transactions.
- Forcing individuals to pay for things for which they fundamentally disagree.
- Enforcing the death penalty.

These are all assaults against the free choices of any person regardless of sex, gender, ethnicity, or wealth class who may disagree with such opinions. They are against the very concept of individual freedom itself.

If an individual disagrees with laws such as these, and acts in their own free will against it, members from a special class of people with opposite rules for themselves will threaten, steal from, kidnap, imprison, or outright put a bullet in their head. This is the simple fact of law imposed by the use of force.

When we enforce an opinion through the State, we oppress any dissenting opinion and we violently oppose any action otherwise. When you are filling out your ballot and marking down your opinion of how someone else must live their life, you had better make sure that you are okay with the ultimate action that will be used against them should they act against your opinion.

The State is violence. It is the initiation of the use of force. The further we support the belief that this is anything civilized, and any way to treat fellow human beings, the further we will fall closer to tyranny. If you feel that you must vote, then vote today to defend what you have left of your liberties, and not for limiting those of your fellow human.

I thought I'd just add a bit of my experience in quieting down my new (used) PowerEdge 2950 Gen III. I ran through the same steps with soldering resisters onto the red wires onto some extra fans I purchased on Ebay; 4 for $12.

 However, I went with 1w 33ohm resistors, which are consistently running somewhere between 3300RPM - 3800RPM. This has quieted the server down to a very bearable level, while still remaining above the 2025RPM minimum threshold, which spared me from making any modifications to the server's firmware.

Temps at idle are reporting around 45C and temps while at full load (compiling GCC on Gentoo Linux) haven't exceeded 60C; memory sticks have reached around 89C. I should also note that prior to modifying the fans, I removed both CPU heatsinks and cleaned them off as well as the CPUs and put some fresh thermal paste on, which alone dropped the temps down well under 40C with fans at full 8000+RPM.
