Goodlatte Predicts $11 Billion In New Taxes, Fees From Net’s New Rules
I’ll bet that when all is said and done “Net neutrality” will result in a lot more than $11 billion in new taxes. The directive from the FCC constitutes a federal “virtual land grab.” Too much goes on in the free and open Internet for the government’s liking. The Feds want a piece of it and to ultimately control it. Control the Internet and the information traveling on it and one can institute things like the anti-free speech “Fairness Doctrine.” And probably, eventually much worse things.

Yet many Internet freedom folks still consider “Net neutrality” a win.

Do you really think that a proposal which comes from this White House is actually about EXPANDING the conversation? Do you really think this president wants FREER information?

If you do, no offense, you haven’t been paying attention for a long time. This president has gone after whistle blowers and journalists like no other president ever. Nixon doesn’t compare. Obama is not interested in open debate and the free flow of information.

Net neutrality is about Net control. But it may take a few years for many current advocates to realize it. It will probably be too late then though.
