The FCC will rule to make the Internet a Public Utility on February 26th. The more than 330 page report is already written, even though the public can still tell them to keep their hands off, they don’t care. 3 Democrats will vote for Net Neutrality, 2 Republicans against it. 5 total people decide the future, none of them elected. Note: Congress is on vacation.
Government wants more control. The Internet is the last free place we have. We are free to exchange ideas, get unfiltered news, and learn about virtually any topic. We can watch and post videos, and keep in contact with friends. It is the new frontier, that’s why government wants control.
Is education better since Carter started the Department of Education in the 70’s? He also created the Department of Energy to make us energy independent. How’s that working? The private sector has made monstrous gains, while government locks up our natural resources. How about Healthcare? Is Obamacare better than what we had before? The list of government interference in the private market is endless. It always results in bad outcomes they continually try to fix. The Internet exploded because it was free and open. Capitalism created the opportunity and innovation of the Internet. Government can’t stand it. A Department of the Internet only means more un-elected bureaucrats writing regulations.
Expect new taxes. Expect lack of innovation. Government never makes things better. Any problems with bandwidth and access can be solved by the private sector. Problems have been solved since the very beginning of the Internet by capitalism.
Capitalism equals freedom – protecting it is the one job given to government in the Constitution. Capitalism (and freedom) has been replaced by “friends of government” get special favors. Net Neutrality is the last piece of the puzzle – complete government domination of all aspects of our lives.
Guess who wants Net Neutrality anyway:
