The internet is merely one manifestation of free speech and freedom of the press.

We have other avenues, assuming we don’t stupidly dismantle our printing presses.

You’d think from this article that freedom didn’t exist till a decade or two ago.

Just as in many other things, they will never stop trying to control the Interrnet. We’ll defeat this one and then tehre’ll be another ploy, defeat that and they will think of something else.

Leftists have wanted government health care for 100 years. They are patient, persistent and they just keep slamming people with it. They’ve almost won.

Meanwhile, people have to work, raise their kids, shop, get the car fixed...and these b@stards just keep worming away year in, year out. And they have it all planned way, way beforehand.

What seems to have caused you to excerpt your blog?

What gave you the impression that your blog should be posted as “News”?

What is this great tool and why is it in danger?

John Boehner.

Whoops. Wrong kind of "tool".

We cannot allow the decision making for this great tool of commerce and liberty to be left to savages who do not even have indoor plumbing and who believe the answer to anyone who disagrees with them is an AK-47.

More often than the Internet, answering Tyranny with "an AK-47" yields results.

America's Founding Fathers did not have the Internet, but they did have muskets, shot, and powder that the British attempted to seize on the morning of April 19th, 1775.

Mordor-on-the-Potomac does not fear keyboard Patriots, they fear Citizens who exercise their Right to keep and bear arms and are prepared (often trained) to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The site owner's position on bloggers and pimping is spelled out here.

And for those of you in Rio Linda who don't know how to click on a link, here's the money quote:

"I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.

If a blogger can’t or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then I’d just as soon he doesn’t post here. It’s not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. That’s his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog."

Seriously? The 2nd Amendment has done, and will do more for Freedom than the Internet ever could. Only the useful tools will be affected by the propaganda affect and they are already hopless causes. The internet is a great and convenient source of information and a vehicle for discourse, but to paraphrase an old Spenser for Hire thought, it has the potential for a lot of good, but have been relegated to a vehicle for ready access to porn.

The internet is a nifty tool for the modern age. However, the prerequisite for a Free Republic is a moral population. A Limited government model will not work with a soulless rabble... as we are discovering, and as the Left has been pushing, for decades. Even if we could convince enough voters of the advantages of limited government, I'm not sure we have the kind of population to support it anymore.

Find me a nation or culture whose moral compass is still intact after the influences of the American Left, and THEY may have a chance... but I think it far more likely that we have a century or so of another Dark Ages. (I always wondered as a child how the entire world could lose so much knowledge, history, and culture... well we are getting one heck of a demonstration. Now that we are clearly entering into the Dependence Stage of the Cycle of Democracy, we have to try to hasten as best we can the path to Bondage, Spiritual Faith, Great Courage, and then Liberty. Unfortunately, the 4 Stages of Liberty, Abundance, Selfishness, and Apathy took us about 200 years, so I'm not sure the next 4 are going to happen any more quickly.)
