    Of course it does. Once we have massive federal regulations in place there will only be innovation the federal government demands. Look at any other utility and give me examples of innovation occurring. It does not happen because companies cannot recoup their costs.

    The federal government, at this point in our history is the greatest threat Americans face. Banks, or for that matter corporations cannot tax you, cannot force you to buy or use them. And they cannot put you in prison.

    In every area that is regulated by the federal government a massive bureaucracy is created. Add massive new powers to control our lives and Big Brother will be hiring busybodies to enforce their laws and create new ones every couple of weeks. I know we will because I have had my eyes open.

    Nonsense. You have that backward. We have a fascistic federal government that controls nearly every facet of our lives, working and leisure, through hundreds of thousands of regulations.

    Can you name some specific parts of your life where this becomes an interference? Not generalities. You. Your life. Specifically.

    That's not what net neutrality is. That might be something they are trying to pass, but that isn't net neutrality.

    In fact, we'll all be better off. Net neutrality is a barrier to censorship and a barrier to the stifling of innovation.
    Yes, yes, we can trust the government. Don't worry, it's all for the common good. Is that how it goes? Okay, let us just take over the internet, so we can make it fair for everyone. The common good. Oh, you built that? Sorry, it's ours now. Oh, we don't like the content so much. There are some sites that criticize the government too much. Here are a few new rules, you can't say that anymore.

    Yeah, the government wouldn't get so deep into our everyday lives as to tell us what kind of light bulbs we can produce or what toilet we can buy, right?
