This Back on December 21, 2009, a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) power-grab, illegally imposed strict, job-killing restrictions on the Internet. The move was no doubt fueled by Tea Party successes, and a growing fear among liberals that conservatives needed to be silenced. That said, the FCC move wasn‚Äôt widely reported. In fact, many are unsure as to what the new Net Neutrality rules actually mean. What is certain, however, is that in seizing the Internet Obama has also muzzled the greatest mechanism of growth in our history (under the guise of promoting "freedom" for all), and taken one giant step closer to controlling the unfettered access to news and information that we read.
Without the support of the American people and requiring no votes in Congress, the so-called Net Neutrality rules didn‚Äôt require any Congressional action. Now with the federal government seizing control, Grassfire Nation is moving quickly to amass at least 150,000 petitions demanding Congress to reverse the Net Neutrality ruling through legislation.
The Petition States:
As a concerned citizen, I am signing this petition opposing the so-called "Net Neutrality" regulations that were passed by the Federal Communications Commission, and similar legislation in Congress. Net Neutrality imposes government control on the free market of the Internet and is yet another statist power grab.
The FCC does not have the authority to force such sweeping regulations on the free market. I strongly oppose this effort and am urging Congress to fully investigate the FCC and their actions in taking control of the Internet.
Furthermore, I urge Congress to reverse through legislation any effort by the FCC or others to impose so-called "Net Neutrality".
The House as already passed Joint Resolution 6 and the Senate must act before November 20, 2011 to kill these regulations.
