    I promise not to misunderstand Mr. Cutlass today. Check this shit out;

    Protect Internet Freedom

    Dear Friends,

    Obamacare, the VA scandal, the IRS scandal--these are just a few examples of what happens when we give government huge power without oversight.

    It's about to happen again--the Obama Administration is fighting for a government takeover of the Internet and the Federal Communications Commission is going to vote on it February 26th. That's why I am writing you today--I need your help to stop this.

    President Obama came out a few weeks ago urging the FCC to vote to regulate the Internet the same way that it regulates public utilities under Title II. What this means is that, for the first time, billions of dollars in fees will be attached to Internet service just like they are to telephone service.

    You see, under Title II if someone wants to own a telephone company, there are fees baked into the law--fees companies pass on to customers.

    Now, under this new regulatory regime, Internet service providers will be subject to these fees as well, and then pass them on to you, the consumer.

    This is essentially a massive tax increase on the middle class, being passed in the dead of night without the American public really being made aware of what is going on.

    The Internet is built on speed and dynamism, it’s always changing, there are always new and better ideas that are exploding onto the scene, and part of the reason for that is that innovators are not having to go ask Washington, DC for permission every time they want to do something new.

    What this really comes down to is a fundamental question:

    Who do you want in charge of the direction of the Internet: people at dot-com startups that brought us game changing companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon and Uber; or nameless, faceless, unelected bureaucrats in our nation’s capital?

    There is another aspect of this that gets overlooked: the Internet is an incredibly important force for freedom, for liberty, and the rights of free speech that we hold dear. It is an existential threat to tyrants in countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Russia who seek to keep information from their people.[and America....right?]

    We must preserve the high ground for the United States to stand up to these countries and tell them to keep the Internet free and preserve free speech on the Internet throughout the world. We cannot do that if we are regulating the Internet in a similar manner ourselves.

    I am not accusing anyone of sinister motives here, but I am deeply concerned about the idea of any government bureaucrat having the power to tell companies what they can and cannot do. In the long term, this could have a chilling effect on political speech, in ways that today we could not even begin to imagine.

    We do not have much time left to stop this gigantic government takeover of the Internet. The FCC is voting on February 26th and the Left is mobilizing to support their effort to do so. We cannot let the conversation be totally one-sided. The FCC needs to hear from us today--not tomorrow or next week or next month. Today.

    Please join me and go sign the petition to keep the Internet free. We must stand for liberty and preserve the Internet free of government interference.

    Thank you for standing for Internet freedom.

  2. the above sounds like it's from someone on Comcasts' and Time warners' side. I've been following the situation since it began about a year ago. Obama just recently got involved to make it appear that he's doing something for everyone. The FCC chairman IS actually on our side to stop all the bullshit that Comcast and TWC are doing.

    oh,by the way,there's plenty of representatives and senators speaking up for Comcast and TWC because of contributions they've received,FCC commissioner is from contributions.

    It doesn't appear, to me, that the anti-christ has quite given up on internet neutrallity just yet. Another middle class tax assault and a little tighter noose around our necks if he succeeds. Everything he has done, in the last 6 years, falls right in step with the OWG's plans to beat us into get us ready for the heavy-handed tactics now employed by our police ready us for a NATO take over of our country. This is not crazy conspiracy theorism, it's becoming a greater reality every day.

    He can't seem to disarm us so, he is using G. Bush's tactics of making our lives more regulated every day. The Patriot Act was the beginning of our loss of freedoms, another conspiracy that i believe, the OWG orchestrated that massacre just to create an enemy that all of America could hate. The original and largest tool they use for our beating. Hopefully, with our now conservative congress, we can begin to repeal this law(tool,beast) that has very efficiently began the reduction of our civil liberties.:flag:

    Protect Internet Freedom

    Dear Conservative,

    Big government can’t seem to keep its hands off of anything.
    The latest insult: President Obama and the Federal Communications Commission are going to take over the Internet on February 26th if we don’t do everything we can do to stop them right now.

    A plan deceivingly referred to as “Net Neutrality,†involves declaring the Internet a “public utility†and gives the FCC the power to decide what Internet service providers can charge and how they operate. This is not only a direct attack on the free market, but it will also result in an increase in Internet access fees for millions of consumers in America. It’s a massive tax on the middle class, plain and simple.

    The details are complicated but here’s the truth: If "Net Neutrality" is passed, for the first time ever, the Internet will be under the rule of an antiquated regulation designed for land line telephones. President Obama wants to take something that’s working just fine, and tie it up in red tape--sound familiar? We've seen this movie before--it's called ObamaCare.

    The FCC plans to vote on Feb. 26th on whether or not the government should take their usual heavy handed approach to controlling the Internet or do the right thing and leave it alone.

    I need your help to tell President Obama and the FCC: "Don't mess with the Internet!"

    An unregulated Internet has been the single greatest catalyst in history for individual liberty and free markets on the planet. It has created the greatest revolution since Henry Ford invented the Model T.

    Let's get this straight--technology has progressed because it has been driven by a free and open Internet--not because of DC bureaucrats. This latest attempt to regulate the web threatens to interrupt that positive innovation, set the market back, and kill jobs.

    A free, flourishing Internet is as important as anything man has ever created. But those freedoms are under assault.

    Please, stand with me and help protect Internet freedom by signing this petition today.

    These attempts to regulate the Internet are a direct attack on the freedom of information and an innovative market. The government needs to stay out of the way.

    Free markets are worth protecting. Please tell your friends, your families, that there’s nothing neutral about net neutrality. We have to stop this aggressive, invasive, and harmful regulation and we need all the help we can get to do it.


    Senator Rand Paul
