    No they won't. They'll blame Obama. At no point will it occur to them that supporting Obama's position would have prevented the situation that they would find themselves in.

    The only logical way I can see anyone opposing Net Neutrality is if they are in fact, Comcast or Time Warner. Like Cardinal said, leave it to a whack job like Ted Cruz to turn something that everyone should stand for into a Partisan issue. If you care at all about small business, stand for Net Neutrality.

    The Internet is working just fine as it is and requires no further government regulations to screw it up. Often, such as in this case, more government regulation isn't the best and only answer.
    But it isn't the government that is screwing things up, it is the ISPs and the big media outlets who are deciding that limiting bandwidth in certain ways can make them more money. That's at the core of net neutrality, not having the government stick their noses in things. Even if the government stays totally out of the picture, net neutrality goes out the window.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It was working just fine until these giant media conglomerates realized they could make more money by limiting bandwidth based on who pays them the most. That's the change, not government intervention.

    Technically yes, like you can technically shut off your water and electricity.

    However, this is 2014. Internet access is a basic tool of commerce and communication. And as much as we'd love the free market to come up with a substantial alternative to the form we have now, it hasn't.
