"Republicans have made a habit of bashing "Big Tech."
Which is making more and more tech people appreciative of Republicans.
Democrats won't do it, which is probably why the Republicans do :-/. Regardless, I remember the pictures of Obama chumming it up with the 2 Google men thinking how blatantly sold out can you be? It was the open support of the Democrat party that turned the internet into a spy machine. California is clearly to blame. For example, letting cops use your private camera(s) which, is complete totalitarianism. Of course both Democratic and Republican parties are under that totalitarianism, so I guess the majority of the blame lies with California.
