We, the Undersigned, DEMAND Congress Cease and Desist from Further Regulating, Taxing, or Eroding Online Privacy for the Following Reasons . . .

***  The internet is the single greatest catalyst in history for individual liberty and free markets;

***  Internet collectivism is now the greatest threat to the future of internet freedom;

***  True technology revolutionaries have little need for government meddling and never have. Microsoft ignored the government for years and changed the world by leading the PC revolution;

***  Today, companies like Apple are changing the world again with products like the iPhone, i Pad, iTunes, and iPod. Apple “Apps” alone have created more than half-a-million jobs over the past five years;

***  Technology revolutionaries succeed because of the decentralized nature of the internet, which DEFIES GOVERNMENT CONTROL. But statists are ramping up efforts to control the internet in several ways, including;

>>> Increasing taxes on the internet to slow down the technological revolution’s massive expansion of job creation;

>>> Destroying privacy rights of individuals with government snooping and efforts to abolish anonymity;

>>> Penalizing and intimidating companies in frontier industries that didn’t even exist five years ago with antitrust actions in the name of “fairness” and “competition;”

>>> Forcing telecom, cable, and broadband companies under collective rule via so-called “open-access” regulation, structural separation, and public ownership (i.e. GOVERNMENT ownership);

>>> Forcing internet infrastructure and wireless spectrum to be treated as “commons” subject to centralized government control;

>>> Virtually eradicating property rights on the internet.
ALL THESE INITIATIVES WILL LEAD TO THE ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION.

A FREE AND FAST INTERNET THAT RESPECTS ONLINE PRIVACY WILL DIE ALONG WITH IT.

As a Member of Congress, you are being put on notice.

Those who would increase seek increased taxes and regulations on the internet and seek to further destroy online privacy and anonymity will pay a severe political price at the polls.

Comments on: "Sign the Manifesto For Internet Freedom" (11)

  1. Just forwarded this important post to my Sister & Brother-
    -In-Law! Why does it seem as if the 1st priority for all on
    the left is to curtail the freedom of others? It’s one thing
    after another, a steady drum beat of a host of nefarious
    items on their agenda with troubling (& terrifying ramifi-
    cations) for all!

    • Elizabeth,

      Good for you signing it. The government wants to take over everything they should not own. I call this a tax and spy bill. it’s bad enough they have drones watching our every moves, now they want to watch every move we make on the Internet. They, the government, is so afraid it won’t get more taxes to spend our lives away.

  5. Pepp, know what is very interesting and telling? This was a hot topic for gays. who were onboard against that interenet bill a while back and then afterward they threw a hairy over how they could not use their support for such things. Just funny considering what they’ve done since.
