    Okay, so if this is the end of net neutrality and people's internet use worsens as a result, who will be to blame?

    We already were in "the arms of the benevolent state." That's why we had net neutrality up until last January.

    If the government takes over the internet and when internet service worsens, who will you blame?

    See? I can play that game, too.

    Is there any liberal left capable of honest debate? If so, please step forward.

    It's not a game. The government did regulate the internet until last January, so I don't need to hypothesize over the change because I already know how it would go (it would happen as it did for the last 25 years). But if net neutrality ends...that's the change. So if everybody's internet use worsens as a result, who will be to blame?

    So you didn't like the internet as it was for the last 25 years?

    Seriously apdst? Would you not prefer that every democrat, liberal, anyone from center/left/ to middle left/to far left be kicked to the curb?

    If not, it certainly is not the image you have crafted for yourself here at DP.

    Myself, I would prefer to have a minimum of 3 parties with pretty much equal power. That way, they would be FORCED to negotiate and compromise and work together to get anything done. But that's living in a dream world. Ain't gonna happen in my lifetime.

    No, I would not. In a one party system, there's no way to prosecute corruption. While I trust the Republicans more than the Democrats, I only trust a little more than the Democrats. Politicians are like children: they'll always push the envelope, to see what they can get away with.

    According to this article, the net neutrality legislation will stifle the profit making ability of the ISP's.

    Are they wrong about that?
