The Federal Government taking over the internet and making it a public utility is yet another example of President Obama’s (and Senator Al Franken’s) lust for a perfect Marxist utopia. Where someone else pays for what you want. But don’t let any of your Minnesota friends know that Al Franken is a left wing nutjob.
Internet is a service. You are buying a service, you do not have a right to it. If you use more than someone else, you should pay more. If your usage is causing a slowdown for everyone else, why shouldn’t the company protect other customers?
yes, there is room for debate about the tactics and ethics of all internet providers and key companies in the internet – Google for example. They’ve been censoring search results and promoting others in a pay to play scheme for years, but they don’t get punished.
Friends, Net Neutrality sounds so wonderful, but this is classic Marxism. Someone built a product (the internet and its wonderous way it gets to your home, work, or mobile device) and the Progressive left wants to steal their product and spread the wealth around.
Set aside your dislike for Comcast, Verizon, ATT, etc and think about it. Don’t use Government to punish someone or something you don’t like.
In a free society, you have to assume risk. In a free society, competition will drive better and cheaper goods and services.
This is another reach of Government. Once they control the internet, what makes you think they won’t tell you what you can and cannot see on it? They ruined health insurance. They ruined school lunches.
Wake up people. You’re being played by a Marxist. Think don’t feel.
There is no such thing as a free lunch.
