John McAfee for President?

JohnMcAfeeSeems like everybody wants to run for President this year.  Now John McAfee has entered the race.  Yes the same McAfee that founded the McAfee security software company.  Not saying he is my candidate, but this statement of his sums up exactly what is wrong with the NSA spying on everybody in order to save us for terrorists.

“I’m protected by a government that invades my privacy so it can assure me that I am not the enemy it is protecting me from.”

He sold his company to Intel back in 2010.  What he says about the McAfee security software explains why this is the only security product I recommend against, and usually remove from the systems I find it on.

Under Intel, the product he created has “become the worst piece of [software] on the planet.”
