    Default Koch-backed activists use power of data in bid to oust Obama from White House

    I became rather speechless and then angry reading this article. I am glad I don't live in Ohio.

    AFP's ground operation in Ohio and other states is built around an interactive online network that links its volunteers with a centralised database of information on millions of American voters. The database, called Themis after the Greek god of wisdom, was created with the help of seed money from the Kochs.

    The database draws information on voters from a range of public and commercial sources to create a profile of their likely political behaviour. What you buy on Amazon; the magazines your subscribe to; your friends on Facebook; your age, neighbourhood, occupation and house value; what petitions you have signed; what church you belong to; whether or not you own a gun – all such data points and many more go towards the creation of your personal, albeit anonymous, voter file.

    I thought I had read about a Bain Capital subsidiary doing the same thing nation wide.

    Then there is the voting machines...

    These people should be treated like you treat a rattlesnake.
