Senate Must Stop Obama Internet Takeover
The Internet is the greatest organ of freedom the world has ever known. Even countries in revolution around the world have utilized it to share the inside scenes of government horrors. Now Obama is threatening to restrict such freedoms with a “kill switch”.
Not only is the whole “government can turn off the internet” a problem. The very fact that the United States government will have a hold on the internet will lead to regulation, and eventual politicization, of the internet. Regulations like those placed on Amazon.Com and other e-commerce hubs will seem normal when compared to content regulation and enforcement. In this process, the government will require constant monitoring programs to search the entire internet – including YOUR internet – for content that may or may not be against such regulation. From this step comes tyranny and the oppression of free speech.
Were the United States to go against a regime that supports internet control, such as the Obama presidency, they might specifically go after conservative, right-wing, or common sense organizations. The everyday American could have their blog, website or web business taken from them as specific messages are quelled. My blog could be shut down, and my content not seen by anyone – all because of a current event that was seen from a common sense view. News organizations like the Fox News website above might be shut down.
We must stop ANYONE from restricting the first amendment. It is specifically made to stop a large, controlling government (that may actually follow the Founding Fathers) from regulating or interfering with free speech. Spread the news to everyone, or you might not see online conservatism again….
