Will abundantly back up my comment to any middle of the road or 

If you are of the Liberal.. er, uh I mean Moderate political persuasion 
then you would prefer hearing "The organization that sponsors Ubuntu 
is, just like the United Nations, concerned with the political well 
being of all nations and the environment in which we all exist and they 
take an active political role in the world to promote their concern".

I really didn't want to start a political discussion, just to point out 
that the Ubuntu organization exists to further Liberal ideals.  That is 
a bit unique among creators and maintainers of Open Source.   Not that 
it is unique that they are Liberal but that they are a political 
organization that just so happens to have their own distro.

I imagine Al Franken would want to know if his favorite distro was 
rolled by and only available at RNC.com.
