How long before we find out that CAs are part of the whole spying industry also?

There is very high likelihood that they are . Verisign was founded by a group of ex CIA/FBI directors back in the 90's, who resigned to start Verisign. This happened after the Clipper chip program got canned. (The US government wanted to build a legal backdoor into every computer running the Clipper cryptographic system.)

Its the same reason that they bought Thawte from Mark Shuttleworth for about a $1 billion dollars. He controlled a significant amount of HTTPS encryopted HTTPS traffic via his start-up.

I suspect that Most HTTPS traffic can be decrypted on the fly by the US spy organisations.

The main benefit of a workable electronic voting system is that we will be able to vote more regularly on a range of issues, taking some of the power away from the politicians. I think that this may be one of the primary reasons why Diebold, who can produce near perfect ATMS, cant/wont build an accurate voting system.

I think the premise would be OK if it wasn't for the fact that a library full of statutes of actions that could put you on the wrong side of the law exists. In terms of the law, are all transgressors - all it takes is a little time, to find the charge to level at you.
