Net Neutrality - Act now!

Below is a well-written email that I received from an out-of-town reader. It's too easy for many to overlook the importance of taking action immediately. Now is that time.

You know the old saying - once the horse is gone, it's too late to close the gate.

Read this message and then contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative today! Go to  Near the top, click on "Take Action". Click on "Comment". Click on Proceeding 14-28. It's pretty embarrassing that only 2,234 comments have been filed in the past 30 days!

"The comment period for the FCC regarding net neutrality ends Feb 28. Here is my comment. 

"I DO NOT WANT MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION. If you agree, please add your comments to the FCC site. The Constitution provides for 3 branches of government, not four. Administrative agencies investigate, make their own rules and then enforce their rules. Thus, agencies, such as the EPA and the FCC can destroy individuals and their rights. 

"I am against Tom Wheeler's net neutrality's proposal. The internet is working perfectly fine as it is. I do not want the government to regulate it. We do not need another gate keeper to our free speech rights. We do not need the government to withhold information, or people to be reluctant to express their views. I want to know what others think. I may not agree with them, but I will know their views. 

"Without the internet the we would never have discovered that NBC's Brian Williams lied regarding his experience in Iraq. Already taxes are too high and allowing the FCC to regulate the internet will lead eventually lead to speech controls, extra taxes, (such as the phone taxes, that never were removed). Keep the government out of regulating the internet! 

"Also, reign in some of these administrative agencies. Do this by legislation. The legislature created these agencies, you can stop their funding and rein in their abuses."
