“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Our carelessness let the Russians in

Why is everybody getting the vapors over Russia trying to "undermine our democracy" and "commit this cyber act of war" and "influence our free election"?
There are maybe 40 countries who are sophisticated enough to hack other countries and we all try to hack each other....all the time.
There was no propaganda disseminated, disinformation peddled, psychological ops perpetrated, or fake news trotted out as real news. The only thing that happened as a result of the Russian hack was that dark, disturbing truths about Hillary, Podesta, Huma, Weiner, Donna Brazile, and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz were revealed. Nothing was made up and no lies were told. No American voters were tricked into voting for Trump or not voting for Hillary.
Most importantly, none of it could have happened if Hillary and Huma hadn't communicated via her rinky-dink bathroom server, Podesta hadn't used "password" as his password, or Huma hadn't used her pervert husband's laptop for secure communication.
Putting the blame on Russia when you handed them the information on a silver platter is like blaming the guy who stole your car out of a city alley when you left the windows down and the keys in the ignition.
