    We need to enforce our anti-trust laws on the isp's and internet providers. These bastards need to be broken up into 50 companies that are forced to respect their consumer or die.

    Want to talk about more competition and stronger capitalism republicans? Agree with me and we can make capitalism stronger while treating the consumer with respect.

    No internet provider can control more then 10% of the market of a region.

    The consumer should punish the hell out of any company that attempts to hurt them.

    The most important provision of this act however is the prevention of anticompetitive mergers. This occurs when a company buys a competing firm. While most mergers allow the companies to create better quality goods at less expensive prices, some mergers limit competition and make price fixing easier. This part of the act was designed to prevent mergers from creating monopolies.

    The Clayton Act was designed to supplement existing laws and prevent corporate greed from taking advantage of consumers and smaller businesses. It promotes free trade and prohibits business acts that may harm competition. The act also gives consumers more power over market demand. Clayton Act – Antitrust Laws

    Comcast, century link and the other greedy bastards need to be broken up!!! They take advantage of the consumer and destroy smaller businesses.
