Ron Paul 2012! He’s running again!

 

So I guess the question becomes.. which is more important to you at this point in the USA current state of affairs?

Social policy (e.g.: Stance on abortion or marriage)

OR

Economic policy

If you’re more concerned about the economy (and rightfully so), then you won’t find a better presidential candidate. We can work on the social issues with enough participating constituents. But the economic issues we faced left unchecked WILL destroy us with inflation.

GOP (house) and corporate interests want to block netneutrality-Obama’s office says hello Veto

From the article:

The rule is part of “an enforceable and effective policy for keeping the Internet free and open,” and President Barack Obama’s advisers will recommend he veto the resolution if it reaches his desk, the administration said in a statement.

Ridiculous and completely stolen argument – house blocks funding #fcc #gop #netneutrality

Slashdot link here (great comments)

This is an incredibly easy argument to defeat.

Walden and other critics of the FCC’s net-neutrality order argue it will stifle innovation and investment in broadband

Yea? It will stifle innovation? How can you say that when that’s the current status quo? Perhaps you can explain why the US has been leap frogged in recent years in terms of technological advancement?

Hell, it’s gotten to the point now where people aren’t flocking to this country any longer from aboard because of it’s lack of technological dominance (opportunity). So you mean to imply that this will only get worse with the FCC rules?

I call bullshit – I cannot get any worse and this argument is stolen. This is the exact reason why we need net neutrality and STRONGER rules to protect it from corrupt politicians being influenced by greedy corporations.

What’s more innovative? An internet which is controlled by a free flowing stream of information? Or an internet which is sliced up for all the greedy corporations to carve up? Just another big fat pie full of money people already don’t have.

If net neutrality doesn’t pass the internet will be full of tolls (between providers), metered pricing for bandwidth (for consumers) and just become completely commercialized and over saturated (most like we’re already used to).

And where will the next Google or Facebook come from in an internet that’s not protected from the wolves who only care about themselves and their share holders?

Senator Al Franken makes a very convincing case of why the #comcast #nbc #merger is bad for consumers…

He’s 100% correct this is just a first battle and an important one. We will need at least somewhat of a bipartisan effort from the people to push against this. I’ve signed it.. http://www.alfranken.com/index.php/splash/fccopenletter

Please sign the FCC / DoJ petition, it’s quick and easy and they WILL hear your (our) voice. There’s lots of links on this blog about this issue and related issues. Please read up and take 5-10 mins out of your day to actually stand up and take some action. It’s time for some change!

IN CASE YOU MISSED THE DIRECT LINK ITS HERE AGAIN FOR YOU ONE MORE TIME JUST CLICK ON ANY WORD IN THIS SENTENCE!
