Ron Paul’s Anti-Net Neutrality ‘Internet Freedom’ Campaign Distorts Liberty
Friday, July 6th, 2012

The libertarian super-duo, Congressman Ron Paul and his son, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, launched an “Internet Freedom” campaign this week that has come out swinging against net neutrality, branding it as a clever attempt at more government intervention. “The Technology Revolution” manifesto decries any attempt to regulate private Internet service providers as an affront to liberty, yet seems to ignore that powerful telecommunications monopolies can wield as much coercion over the future of the Internet as the government. A world without a level playing field of Internet bandwidth allows powerful companies to favor their well-endowed corporate friends over the scrappy startups that power the most vibrant innovation on the web.

After awhile, it’s hard to know what’s good and bad.
We can only say that ANYTHING that opposes the Gooferment is good.
If “the Gooferment” tells us that sky is blue, we should ask for evidence.
