Save Net Neutrality

Please act immediately to save the Internet.

The Internet represents one of the few growth areas of our economy since the 1960s.

In addition, the Internet when it is neutral and free magnifies democracy. That is, it is a source of affordable communication (speech and press), and affordable information (press).

It is said that knowledge is power; through the Internet anyone can look up encyclopedia articles or news archives, and anyone can set up these resources and help maintain them. If Net Neutrality is destroyed because access to and from the Internet is sold to the highest bidder, or the ones that have a deal or agree with the network providers, then our democracy's newest hope is greatly diminished.

If Network Neutrality is destroyed, this decade's emerging businesses like last decade's Yahoo! and Google, which pay well and employ many, will be stifled. Small businesses will not be able to be nimbler than larger corporations who will use the Network to outsource our good-paying jobs. Small businesses are the engine of our economy and of social mobility.

Save the Internet and save our democracy and our economy!

Sign the http://www.SaveTheInternet.com petition and they'll send your message to your Congressfolk. Our actions are making a difference!

I've signed the petition. It's also a good idea to contact your local reps/senators and tell them to support net neutrality.
