I noticed Politico trashed your link in your post.
Where can I get the truth on this net-neutrality scam?
I know the FCC is bad, it’s government bureaucracy. May as well be Iran.
I know big pipe companies (Qwest, Comcast et al) are wanting to rape consumers with tiered services. This is what monopolies do.
I know politicians are liars. That is what they do when their lips move.

What is going on and where can I find truth?
Thank you in anticipation…. Jon

It amazes me how many of my fellow conservatives have been duped in to believing that Net Neutrality is a free speech issue for the cable companies. Free Speech applies to the message not the pipe or the pipe owner. The tech that the internet companies use to “manage” their systems is the same that is used in Communist China to censor the Internet and crack down on dissidents. ISPs want to discriminate based on who is talking and what the message is.

ISPs have no business knowing WHO is sending the message and WHAT the contents of the message are. They should only be concerned about the amount of data, not the contents of the message.

Why do conservative Christians get upset if a baker is forced to bake a cake for a gay wedding but don’t get upset when a cable company can inspect your data and disconnect or slow it down.

Please do your homework and understand that market forces cannot work when you only have 1 ro 2 companies from which you can buy internet access. FYI, I will put my conservative credentials up against any in the Tea Party. Any.

Freedom of the Press = freedom of the owner of the press / conduit / technology provider to transmit the message to users, too. The Right would be meaningless if the transmission technology used to shepherd speech lacked this protection. Moreover, this transmission happens over private facilities. Forcing speech, without a narrow and compelling government interest, and without just compensation, indentures press owners to involuntary servitude. As to market forces, in any given market Americans have at least 3 different broadband providers – and in the majority of America, it’s 4 or more choices. As technology improves, this will continue to grow.
