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….
Obama has finally called for the US to go against Israel. He calls for the lands received during the 1967 Six Day War to be given back to Palestine – before the war, Jewish and Christian graves were desecrated, and members of non-Muslim faith disrespected. Even common sense would dictate that it would go back to this past, as the entire region has vowed to destroy Israel. An article on Yahoo! News tells the account in detail, Obama wants to resolve a land dispute fought since the dawn of time by becoming even further involved. We are going to BEGIN by investing an initial 2 Billion dollars overseas. The Jewish homeland is beginning to be dismantled, and we Americans are continuing to display our ignorance in the face of international and domestic affairs. STOP THE INSANITY!
As government looms even larger over America, our middle class is being crushed with regulation and taxation. Many small-business owners do not have the money or time to devote towards appeasing the government, nor the resources to head off unions. We need less regulation now, as the times have led many to hopelessness and poverty.
