the internet is not a public utility, no matter how much you want it to be. so the comparison to barely drinkable water vs. premium yum water is irrelevant. there is no inalienable human right to high speed internet.

on the other hand, businesses do have the right to sell their products and services for what the market is willing to pay for them. petitioning government to curtail the rights of others for your own convenience is ignorant as if flies in the face of freedom of association.

"freedom on the internet"? dont make me laugh. your every web search and every keystroke is able to be monitored, logged, and scrutinized by the websites you visit, your isp, and multiple government agencies. take facebook for example. anyone use the book of faces? they monitor every word you type, build a profile out of your identity, and sell that to advertisers. and google? their tracking software is installed on tens of millions of websites. you dont want to pay for the internet, so they pay their bills by selling you. youre not the customer, youre the product, and "net neutrality" is the reason.


My apologies. I apparently was misinformed by our friends the Libturds. xP I should've looked this up on Info Wars before posting. Sorry for the false alarm.


Gamer gamer gamer, what are we going to do with you... Haha
In all seriousness though, don't worry about it. You brought up discussion and learned from it! If more people would do that we wouldn't be a nation of sheeples. I would never apologize for posting an unpopular opinion, especially if I don't have the facts, because then I can be corrected and learn. The problem many liberals, and even republicans, have is that they argue without any facts, which just exacerbates the situation.

re: My Apologies

I keep thinking that the Internet thrived, and free choice on how it would be used by consumers also thrived prior to the introduction of Net Neutrality laws under Obama. For example, how many of you remember America Online and it's array of "channels?" Their home page was basically a big wall of buttons to popular websites on AOL's proprietary network, while in the middle of the toolbar across the top sat a small blue wire-frame globe symbol, their hotkey to the Internet itself.

Anyone still use it?

I rest my case.

Net Neutrality was just another way for the left wing liberal nazis to intercede on the behalf of all people so everybody gets common internet and no one gets great internet. This country has thrived on freedom and the best way for America to become great again is to reduce the government footprint and give freedom back to the people.

Keep in mind, Socialism looks fantastic on paper (Star Trek) but in reality it is oppression under another name.
