Unfortunately this is how

Unfortunately this is how the federal government grew at the beginning from 5% of the economy to well over 50%. Someone sees a problem and wants a government fix. This gave rise to the FCC in the first place which then created monopolistic positions and destroyed the free market.

If the federal government starts to use force in the internet, then it will just keep expanding until we can no longer freely communicate. What we should be striving for is an elimination of government involvement that creates these dangers to begin with rather than another government fix that ultimately will fail.

Do you think that you pull the government strings or that they are pulled by special interests who line up with big pocketbooks to sway politicians and bureaucrats? Your fears are being exploited to manipulate you into giving up freedom; same old story, just different title to the play, in my view.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Internet Regulation by the Federal Government Unconstitutional

Ron Paul is against anything that violates the U.S. Constitution. Since the U.S. Constitution no where gives the federal government the authority to regulate the internet, of course he would be against the government mandating net neutrality. Ron Paul is a principled and honest politician. He says what he believes and he does what he says he will do. I don't know of any other presidential candidate that is as principled as Ron Paul is. If politicians don't obey the constitution, there is no rule of law in this country.

re:RE: I'M NOT GOING TO STOP....EVER!

I hope you will come back and read this comment...

The reason the Ron Paul voted against net neutrality is because of the nature of the solution to the problem.

Net Neutrality is essentially asking the government to prevent the telcoms from restricting traffic over the internet...obviously no average consumer wants this, not even Ron Paul.

The problem with asking the government to bail us out is that it is a step in the wrong direction. yes, the government is responsible in some ways for the telcoms getting so big because they give them all sorts of money to expand their networks, monopolizing the market for those select companies.

As of now no restrictions that have been worried about have come into effect. However, if they do, it will be up to the american public to come up with an alternative way to access the internet. Their will instantly be a market for a "neutral" internet. Yes, the infrastructure to start such a network is breathtaking, but eventually good products force out inferior products in a free market, which Ron Paul is definitely for.

If you believe in Ron Paul's other theories on limited government and nonintervention, this should not be a surprise to you. Ron Paul is against government regulation of our goods and services, and although we are in a mess because of it, more regulation is not the answer.

Please consider this point of view before writing off Ron Paul as a traitor to the internet which is his greatest ally at the moment. It simply isn't true.
