Ron Paul says "Stop Internet Censorship"

SonicSpike (242293) writes | more than 2 years ago

Censorship 2

SonicSpike writes "Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul writes "SOPA and PIPA actually do is force website owners to police the internet; create entry barriers to the only relatively free and open medium of communication; and threaten to break the technological structure of the internet itself. They also violate our 1st Amendment right to freedom of speech and our 4th Amendment freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures.....

"As is typical of so many bills in Congress, SOPA and PIPA were not crafted to make life better for the American people, but rather were written at the behest of big business trying to enlist the federal government as its strong-arm. For example, the Motion Picture Association of America spent more than $1.2 million so far lobbying for their passage."

Retain Freedoms? That's Crazy. (1)

With ideas like that, no wonder our Republican and Democrat caregivers marginalize him as a crackpot. Ron Paul is clinging to antiquated values.

Erosion of freedom is what's hip and now. All his peers seem to know the dance. Ten steps back, nine steps forward, raise your hands and do it again.
