Congress is about to let large telecommunications corporations decide which web pages you can and cannot see. Don't think they won't use this to keep non-corporate and non-right-wing sites from being seen! You can see what has happened since the Republicans let a few large corporations take over all of the major news sources.
MoveOn is organizing people to fight this. Please visit MoveOn.org Civic Action: Save the Internet
Save the InternetPlease visit MoveOn's petition page.
Congress is now pushing a law that would end the free and open Internet as we know it. Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet's First Amendment and the key to Internet freedom. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. So Amazon doesn't have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer.
Many members of Congress take campaign contributions from these companies, and they don't think the public are paying attention to this issue. Let's show them we care - please sign this petition today.

Now it is all starting to fall into place. First these large telecommunications corporations agree to secretly give the neo cons all of Americans' telephone (and internet) records and, in return, the neo cons promise to give them control over the internet. What a deal! Come on folks. Isn't it time to take down this fascist regime by any means possible? ANY means!
