While President Barack Obama and Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney continue to make headlines this election year, one man is stepping up to remind the American people that there is hope left for our nation's safety and security.  That man is Adam Benford.

The fictional President Adam Benford and the mentioned C-virus are important to the plot of the upcoming Capcom release "Resident Evil 6".  This is a unique way to tie into this year's election, so I applaud the clever minds from which it was spawned.  The live infection map offers social media members to join in on the buzz and play along with the anticipation of the game set to be released on Oct. 2 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. 

Warn people now!  Check out the website today!
