Well Biggs, it's like this.
In a nation which is governed by an allegedly elected body of people, the public must be informed of the serious issues, so that they can vote for
candidates who want the same things they do.
In this case, let's say that candidate A wants to ban all but the top five most secure bio labs in the country, from handling anthrax, and candidate
B thinks everyone should be allowed a sample, the people can choose between them, based on their attitudes toward serious matters like these.
However, I really would not worry about that, because you can trust a campaign promise right up until a government is elected, and not one bit after
that, no matter what party gets in. It's the same over here in the UK. People have been protesting about chemical weapons research and nuclear weapons
around these parts for longer than I have had a pulse, but the government never listens to its citizens, and probably never will, unless they end up
with a knife up one nostril and a pistol barrel in the other.
