Please sign this petition now against the UN takeover of Internet Governance!

The internet and our national sovereignty are again at stake as the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) arm of the UN is holding a closed-door meeting in December to increase censorship and regulate the internet!

From a technology perspective, governments are far too shortsighted to understand the extent that their regulations will be holding back the entirety of humanity. Left free and open, the internet will ever rapidly transform humanity in ways that are beyond comprehension today. Government and especially international government is likely the only force that can slow or even stop this progress. We cannot allow this to happen!

From a Liberty perspective, we must do all we can to prevent international governing of the internet as it is a violation of our national sovereignty!

What is the agenda of the ITU? Mo Money by Double Dippin. The ISPs are making a power play. I pay my ISP for access to the internet. Google pays the ISP for access and the data flows freely between me and Google.

Now, the ISP wants to make Google pay more money for expanded access to its users. That means certain businesses will have more access to your data because they pay more money.
