Is encryption a tool for terrorists?

Keywords:  Candidate competence, Voter competence

Neither Republicans or Democrats have a lock on technical ignorance.  I loved the term “staggering ignorance” in a December 2015 article on Venture Beat.  “Loved” in terms of being vivid and accurate; not in terms of it being good that the candidates are so ignorant.

This issue of encryption isn’t tech versus security.  It’s a case of people that understand versus those that don’t.

Maybe candidates for Leader of the Free World should have to pass an PAT (Presidential Aptitude Test) before they can run.
