Now they want your Internet …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans are against federal regulation of the Internet and believe that government regulation would be used for a political agenda. Ya think! The only folks that are for the regulation of the Internet are Liberals. Of course these people want to regulate your hopes and dreams as well. Only 21% want the Internet regulated while 54% appose. So much for free speech.
American voters believe free market competition will protect Internet users more than government regulation and fear that regulation will be used to push a political agenda.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 21% of Likely U.S. Voters want the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to regulate the Internet as it does radio and television. Fifty-four percent (54%) are opposed to such regulation, and 25% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey was conducted shortly after the FCC decided on a party line vote to impose so-called “net neutrality” regulations on the Internet world. Republicans and unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly oppose FCC regulation of the Internet, while Democrats are more evenly divided. Those who use the Internet most are most opposed to FCC regulations.
Liberals want to regulate what you eat, what you earn, what you pass on to heirs, what you think, what you listen to and now your web-surfing habits. … basically they want to regulate you from birth to death. So much for your free speech, Big Brother will be watching. Good point made by Wake Up America, its always the 21% that are against everything and as coincidence would have it, 21% = Liberals.
Let’s see how this issue plays in 2012 with so many against net neutrality.
