On January 18, 2012 the voice of the people was heard all over the internet and what they said was “get the government out of the internet!”. Congress was looking to expand its power over the internet and proposed to use two pieces of legislation called SOPA and PIPA as a way to control and stifle free speech on the internet.
Thanks to the effort of the free market and majority rule the voice of the people was heard. Thousands of internet sites “blacked out” their sites as a form of protest. Internet giants such as WikiPedia and Google made their millions of visitors aware of the mess. Many congressmen turned on the legislation as they saw and heard the out pour of anger against it and the legislation was defeated… or so we thought.
Senate majority leader Harry Reid (Democrat from NV) has stated he is working on a new “cyber security” bill to be brought for a vote in 2013. Harry Reid is hoping that if Barrack Obama is re-elected and the Democrats win majority back in the House he will then be able to pass this legislation without opposition.
So a vote for the Democrats in November will be a vote for internet censorship. You won’t hear this on MSNBC or ABC leading up to the election, so you will have to educate yourself. Democrats in Washington want to censor the internet, will you support them?
