DON'T LET DICTATORS CONTROL THE INTERNET: KEEP THE WEB FREE
ACLJ ^ | April 1 2014 | ACLJ

Posted on 04/01/2014 10:03:22 AM PDT by MeshugeMikey

The Obama Administration is giving up American control over the Internet, handing over its most important technical functions to a “multinational” body – perhaps even the U.N.

But do we want Russia or China influencing whether we can create websites?

Do we want the U.N. controlling key aspects of the world’s most powerful mode of communication – our free speech?

America has kept the Internet free. Don’t let our nation sign over our freedom to dictators.

This would be a permanent transfer of controlling power

Obama won’t be around forever.

The feds are as bad as all but the worst dictators.

The sheeple just aren't yet aware because we still have “other people's money” left to spend.

The Obama Administration is giving up American control over the Internet

And, for WHAT? What problem will this alleviate? What need will this address?

Don’t let our nation sign over our freedom to [foreign] dictators.

But they've done it already.

This issue needs to be picked up by Congressional candidates. Why aren’t the current Congress critters raising hell about this?

If anything will stir the sheeple to action it’s the Internet.

It's understandable why Obama did this, isn't it?

After all - Its not as if the US was special or exceptional...

This is being done so this government can attempt to distance and isolate themselves from the regulation, censorship and control which it supports and is certainly coming.
