    So much for the claims they're different. That's a bit disappointing.

    Tea Party Allies With Telecom Industry to Dump Net Neutrality

    So dumping Net Neutrality and letting corps charge more for one site than another is congruent with what they preach, how?

    Someone said if these people got their way that a corporatacracy would ensue and we'd all be screwed. Hmmm. Looks like they were right.

    So, you guys get to yell "Hooray! We got less government!" while opening the door for MSN to charge more for visiting a Conservative site than a Liberal one. Brilliant.

    Go ahead. Tell me how less government is ALWAYS a good thing...

    The Tea Party claims to want more freedom, freedom from government, but all they are doing is trading freedom from government in exchange for being ruled by private industry. Getting rid of net neutrality is one of THE biggest freedom losses possible and these idiots are on-board.

    Yeah, they're for freedom all right, freedom for business to do what they want and when they want.

    Keeping the FCC away from the internet is a good thing.

    Nice talking point. Care to elaborate? Of course not, because thats all you "know" about the topic.

    Private business should be able to do what it wants within the law.

    The market will decide who actually gets the business.

    Example : Let's say internet company A says it is going to charge company Z $100.00 per hour of internet and internet company B says hey we will only charge you $10.00 per month for your internet, who do you think is going to get the business?

    Government is not the answer, the market does a great job of keeping business in check not the government, the government favors big business, the market supports the best service at the best price.

    So freedom of information is not important to you? Freedom to make a dollar trumps individuals rights to freedom of information. You realize you're a complete sell-out, right?

    Providing the government with a lever to control content on the internet is not consistent with tea party values. If you think whoever you support has never had a strange bedfellow in a political fight, then you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Keeping government's nose out of the tent is the prime objective, anything else is of relatively little importance by comparison.
