Make no mistake Net Neutrality is obama's attempt to over throw the free flow of information on the Open and Free Internet. Washington through their puppet the FCC is seizing control of the internet by reclassifying the Internet as a public utility. The rules with which the FCC will RULE the Internet are Title II rules from the 1930's. Just like obama LIED through his Kenyan teeth when he sold America the pack of lies called obamacare he's doing it again by calling the FCC's draconian assualt on the Internet Net Neutrality.
Let me ask you..."How's your FREE Healthcare?" All of my medical expensiveness increased 200 to 300 percent after obama and his parasites in Washington seized control of America's healthcare industry. The powers that are pushing the lie of Net Neutrality are the major cable providers and content providers who want more control over the Internet.
The Internet is the driving engine of the 21st century and has been doing an incredible job all by itself with no government interference. The secret of the Internet working has always been "Hands off" from government interference. There is no problem with the internet as it is currently. The Administration Washington simply does not like the fact that people are no longer falling hook, line, and sinker for the propaganda on the mainstream networks.
During the Monica Lewinsky scandal with President Clinton, Hillary Clinton stated that the "Drudge Report" should be removed from the internet. Not because it was inflammatory or inaccurate, but because Mat Drudge has broken a story exposing the filth with in the Clinton administration. Hillary Clinton recently said in regards to 'Net Neutrality' that Washington needs to have some control over what type of information is allowed on the Internet. She went on to say.."that there are too many opinions and too much information on the Internet which make it hard to run a country." In essence what she is saying is that only 'PRE-APPROVED' sources of information should be allowed to have voices on the Internet.
Ajit Pai, a commissioner at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said Net Neutrality is "a solution that won't work to a problem that doesn't exist," says
Pai is an oustpoken opponent of expanding government control of the internet, including FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's plan to regulate Internet Service Providers (ISPs) under the same Title II rules that are used to govern telephone-service providers as public utilities. Under current FCC regulations, ISPs are considered providers of "information services" and subject to essentially no federal regulation.
He is also sharply critical of President Barack Obama's very public push to influence policy at the FCC, which is technically an independent agency. Last year, it was widely believed that Wheeler, a former head of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, would not push for Title II. Pai calls the president's actions—which included "creating a YouTube video of with very specific prescriptions as to what this agency should do"—unprecedented in his experience. Coupled with the fact that "the agency suddenly chang[ed]course from where it was to mimic the president’s plan," says Pai, "suggests that the independence of the agency has been compromised to some extent."
The FCC is scheduled to vote Thursday, February 26 on Wheeler's plan.
Pai explains his opposition to Title II reclassifcation to Reason's Nick Gillespie. Citing independent studies of American competitiveness and booming investment in telecommunications infrastructure compared to Europe, Pai argues that consumers are thriving and the market is doing its job.
Regulating the internet like a utility company, says Pai, will threaten the kind of innovation we've taken for granted over the past 20 years. "Do you trust the federal government to make the Internet ecosystem more vibrant than it is today?" Pai asks. "Can you think of any regulated utility like the electric company or water company that is as innovative as the Internet?"
The worst part is the FCC is going ahead with the vote which concerns ALL Americans without letting ANYONE see what they are voting on. The FCC at the behest of the current Administration is refusing to allow Congress to take 30 days to look at the Net Neutrality rules. This entire Net Neutrality is being done in the dark, against the will of the American people, and is even being rushed past the United States Congress. If this is so good for the American people then why is it being done in the dark of night behind closed doors? I can tell you for certain that Net Neutrality is obamcare for the internet.
One last thing I did contact my Louisiana Republican Senators David Vitter and Bill Cassidy and I was blown off like I was a mindless idiot. In fact I was told by one that..."The Senator Bill Cassidy has no position on the matter." The last I checked the USA was a Republic, which means the power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen by the behest of the voting public. Senator Bill Cassidy should represent his constituents not himself.
