How do you expect to get elected when you are attacking the very people who
will be voting in the election?

Further, it would seem you have very little experience in actually
operating large scale networks, network equipment or softwarr. You do
realize that a LARGE number of devices on the Internet run operating
systems that are no longer vendor supported? So even if you could convince
ALL vendors to support IPV4+ (nearly impossible), how do you plan to solve
the devices I mentioned?Perhaps it's because you can't, and neither can
IPV6, except a subset of those devices already support IPV6, so there will
less devices left behind than with your solution.

The more you talk, the more uneducated you sound.
