Whats all the fuss about ?

 We should know by now the government controls everything in our lives from the time we come screaming into this world and get a govt. issued  birth certificate till the time we die and our next of kin gets a govt. issued death certificate. The hospital you are born in has more govt. regulations and licenses than you could possibly dream of. When you leave the hospital as a baby you now have to ride home in a  govt. approved car seat, in a car the govt. approved and licensed and driven by a govt. licensed driver. All the food you buy in the supermarket has to have a govt. seal or mark saying it's approved to eat.
Everything in your home is approved by the govt. every electrical component in you home has to have a seal showing it is govt. tested and approved, the paint, wood, shingles, plumbing, heating, A/C, windows...everything has to be govt approved for safety, storm rating, chemical content etc. There is nothing you do that the govt. does not have their fingers in. You pay taxes all your life, you can save and buy a house or land and pay it off but guess what....you never own it, you rent it from the govt., you don't think so? stop paying your property taxes and you will find out who owns it. The govt. tells you what kind of guns you can and can't buy and when you do they are marked by a govt. mandated serial number. Your car has a govt. mandated VIN, you have a govt. issued serial number. Everything you buy is govt. controlled or approved. They control the banks, your money, the fat content of your food, the roads you drive on, the beach you walk on the forest you hunt in, the things you do on your property, the restaurant you eat at, the airlines you fly on, the security at airports etc. etc.,.......  I think you get the point. The government controls your whole life in one way or another. You think you have freedom, I beg you to find something the govt. does not have some control over. You have as much freedom as they allow and not a bit more. The more you think about it the more you realize it is true.

 This brings me to the point of this post, what is all the fuss about the government wanting control of the internet ?,  to be honest I don't see what has taken them so long, they control EVERY aspect of your life and they will get control of the internet as well. We have stood by and let them have all this power so It's not a question of if but when.

  2. This is so sad when you see everything listed as you have. It is silly to think so but I wonder, since we've lost everything else, if the internet will be the line drawn in the sand.

  7. I never thought about it like that, but you are absolutely correct... All we have left is free speech, in my opinion, take that away and we are in China, North Korea, Venezuela, or Cold War Soviet Union

    1. Jack, You are correct but even some speech is censored, they have laws about 'hate speech' which will surely spread to other areas.

  8. Yes, if only there was a "home of the brave" or "land of the free" to turn to for answers and relief.

    2. Duke: I don't much G.A.S. about other countries if YKWIM?

      I intend to stay and fight for restoration of the republic as intended by the founders.

      WE THE PEOPLE still have the power, we just need to get THE PEOPLE off their collective gluets and engaged in the process.

      Imagine IF millions of Americans went to their financial units and changed their monthly deductions so ZERO $ was withheld each month (therefore none sent to D.C.) AND then had the courage to refuse to file tax returns.

      If MILLIONS AND MILLIONS participated, they do no have the resources to round up, arrest or prosecute and would HAVE TO OFFER AN AMNESTY of some kind in the future.

      In the meantime, I bet that would get THEIR attention.

      Imagine if millions and millions of americans would just do what I did: GO GALT!

      I shut down my RE brokerage after 27.5 years simply because I refuse to work for the lazy and corrupt. My wife and I are having to get by on much less but we're getting by and it feels GOOD to be doing SOMETHING!

      Just sayin'

    3. Diamondback, It would be great if we could get everyone to do as you suggest, but at best I think we could only get a small percentage to go along. Although it might be enough seeing that only a very small group pay the majority of taxes.

  10. The only problem with election is, it is dictated to us as well. Our votes are opinions, the electoral vote is the final say. Wonder who runs that. This is the perfect, most well written article I have seen to date. Wish all true Americans could read it!
