The left is insatiable in their thirst to centralize power through levers of the bureaucratic state.
It’s not enough for Obama and the left to destroy the world’s greatest health care system. Now, they are moving secretly to control, and heavily tax, the Internet.
There is nothing wrong with the Internet that suddenly needs fixing or regulating. There is no Internet crisis that demands government intervention. The left manufactures crisis after crisis in order to advance their radical ideology.
In fact, the Internet is an unqualified success, a boost to freedom and the free market.
Take a look at repressive regimes all across the globe. They use the machinery of government to regulate and control the Internet.
Three of the five FCC Commissioners are Democrat operatives, thus Obama’s internet power grab is almost sure to pass without the American people—much less Congress—ever getting the opportunity to read and debate the 332 pages of regulations the FCC will use to control the Internet.
In fact, the Democrat majority in the FCC refuse to release the 332 pages of Orwellian regulations to public scrutiny.
They will pass it before you get to see what’s in it.
This is how tyranny creeps into the fabric of a Republic.
A Republican member of the FCC, Ajit Pai, is so alarmed by Obama’s power grab via the FCC that he is stepping forward as a whistle blower.
On Wednesday’s “Mark Levin Show” Pai said that proposed Internet regulation “mimics Obamacare” both in process and substance, and was “adopting a solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn’t exist using legal authority we don’t have,” and would lead to “billions of dollars in new taxes”.
It comes down to this:
If you like your Internet, you can keep your Internet.
If you like your provider, you can keep your provider.
