    Do You Believe There Should Be a "Pay to Play" System on the Internet

    Do you believe the FCC should allow a "pay to play" system on the internet?
    A new FCC Chair threatens to let cable and phone companies create an Internet fast lane for companies that can afford it and a slow lane for everyone else who cannot afford it.

    There isn't a word for "no" strong enough to express my answer to this.

    Net neutrality needs to be amended to the constitution.

    Well, first, the FCC is over broadcasts, as in radio or the tv you get with rabbit ears... They have no claim over the internet.

    Net neutrality is what makes the internet as valuable as it is,if companies control the information then all unpopular opinions will get shut out. (Ie, no more debate politics, or you pay the premium).

    Bye bye free speech on the internet.

    Everyone who thinks a pay to play is a good idea should realize that if they like conservative sites and the ISP is owned by liberals then they can count on access to those sites being gone or practically nonexistent, if their ISP is owned by by the cable company then they can kiss access to netflix, hulu and other similar sites goodbye, and if your ISP doesn't like political forums then you can kiss access to those sites goodbye. I do not know about most cities but in my city the cable company provides the fastest internet and it has no real competition, so the idea you can simply go to someone else is idiotic.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What about the ISP's right to freedom of association?!

    **** no?
    Die in a fire no?
    Drown to death no?
    Tortured to death by clowns no?
    Chop your dick off no?

    One can get quite colorful with the word 'no'.

    The control (build, toll, and maintain) the "highway", they don't associate with the vehicles (information packets) traveling on that highway.

    (Apology if that was sarcasm)
