Don't Let the FCC Regulate the Internet!
The free-market Internet has been a remarkable engine of economic growth, freedom, innovation, and creativity.
Reducing the Internet a government-controlled "public utility" would be a tragedy.
The lead group organizing the "Internet slowdown" day that generated calls to your office earlier this week is called Free Press. It was founded by a liberal college professor named Robert McChesney who once admitted: "the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control."
Destroying private investment and forcing government to take over the Internet would cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars for a network run by the same federal bureaucrats who can't even keep their own website online.
Finally, there is no problem that needs to be solved. The very fact that websites had to FAKE an "Internet slowdown" proves it isn't actually happening.
I urge you to oppose the radical "public utility" concept and protect the free-market Internet from regulation.
