Save the Internet

Understand, the internet is just as essential to our liberty as the Bill of Rights, letting big business dictate that freedom, is like letting them re-write The Constitution.

As everyone knows, public schools have failed, library hours are drastically reduced due to funding, and the gap between the rich and poor grows daily. True, the internet will not solve theses problems of itself, but it gives everyday people the power and opportunity to get an education, to access information vital to their potential, and to create and communicate wisdom and ideas.

The network is the only technology force holding back the rich and powerful from dominating our media. The network is vital to democracy. It is the last economic frontier most of us will ever see. Without using the FCC powers to insure Net Neutrality and guarantee that future generations have the chance to educate themselves, we are lost.

Net Neutrality is essential to free speech, equal opportunity and economic innovation in America. Since the FCC removed this basic protection in 2005, the top executives of phone and cable companies have stated their intention to become the Internet's gatekeepers and to discriminate against Web sites that don't pay their added tolls.

This fundamental change would end the open Internet as we know it. It would damage my ability to connect with others, share information and participate in our 21st century democracy and economy. The FCC must ensure that broadband providers do not block, interfere with or discriminate against any lawful Internet traffic based on its ownership, source or destination.

Stepping on Network Neutrality stifles democracy, education, and liberty. Do not let that happen.

Save the Internet
