Submission + - Online Primary for US President Failing->

What makes the most sense to me is not that we opt out of cookies, but rather that we all use the same cookies.

We need a repository of tracking cookies and a plugin that sets all of our cookies to the same thing. That way there is no dependence upon the trackers to be good or ill. We just all pretend to be the same "person".
