 After the most recent presidential debates it has become clear that almost every candidate, on both sides, wants to ban encryption!  It's hard to believe that all these people who want to be president know so little about modern technology.  Do they not know that encryption is what keeps them safe?  Do they not know that every financial transaction in the world needs encryption?  Do they not know that most government communications are encrypted?

Banning encryption is the worst idea the US gov has ever had in its history!  And many of these candidates don't even seem to realize that their own arguments for gun rights is in contradiction. Unbelievable!

Even Carly Fiorina is for it!  I will not be voting for any of these candidates.

The only candidates on the right side of this issue are Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee. And possibly Bernie Sanders.

If the gov bans encryption that will put every American at risk from criminals, terrorists and out of control government.  It will make the US government an enemy to the world.  The terrorists will just switch to encryption outside the US.  All Americans should stand up against this!!  Contact your Senators and Representatives while you still have the opportunity.  Stop this insanity.

If there was evidence being able to bypass encription for the sake of preventing a terrorist act like San Bernadino, or trace down contact with know terrorist groups, you wouldn't be willing to allow that?

It's a tough call, though I would have to side with not banning encryption. How would businesses protect themselves from espionage? How would you protect your personal information? These things do get sent in emails and you have to have a way of protecting that information.Though admidingly nothing is ever guaranteed. I can see the government having the capability to bypass, but not ban.
