Do you think that George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and the rest of America’s founders ever imagined for a second that the Congress and the President of the United States they created with our Constitution would someday begin to delegate their important legislative powers to obscure government agencies, boards, commissions and other bureaucratic entities substantially beyond accountability to the American people?
Not for a second did any of them ever imagine such a government nightmare. Yet today by far most of the nation’s laws, rules and regulations are promulgated and decreed by fiat from the whims of legions of faceless unelected bureaucrats who have virtual dictatorial powers over our everyday lives. They constitute a huge parasitical fourth branch of government which was never contemplated by our revolutionary fathers. It’s slowly eating away at our liberty.
This Nazi like forth branch of government has wrapped its sticky tentacles around each one of our precious freedoms so that today they successfully control almost every aspect of our lives. With most of their activities we don’t get to vote; we don’t even get the opportunity to debate the matter before their whims become law.
This week the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted sweeping new regulations sought by President Obama for how Americans use and do business on the Internet. These Nazis are moving swiftly to take over the Internet. And they did it all in secret; no vote; no debate; no input whatsoever from the American public.
They call it their net neutrality plan. As with all of their dictatorial regulatory actions they want us to believe that it is all being done benignly and in the public interest. They want us to think that they’re coming to our rescue, making the Internet, in their words, a fairer and "open, unfettered network."
They aim firstly to bar Internet providers from creating paid "fast lanes" allowing us to pay more for better service. They want to level the playing field. They want a one size fits all approach to the World Wide Web. They’re going to do to the Internet what they did to the telephone system. It will now be treated as a public utility requiring providers to act in the so-called "public interest."
It constitutes a "monumental shift" to "government control of the Internet," said Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai. "President Obama told us to do so," he admitted. It will allow rate regulation and service fees. Ultimately, rates will go up and broadband service will slow. "The order explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes."
The European governments have already done the same and it has ruined the Internet experience for their people. Speeds have gone down and there is less entrepreneurial investment. "The Internet is not broken. There is no problem for the government to solve," Pai explained.
Congress long ago created this Frankenstein monster and therefore only Congress can drive a state through its tyrannical heart. Good luck with that. It will never happen. Instead the situation will only continue to get worse.
We’re stuck with the FCC Nazis
