Should The Internet Be Considered A Human Right? (PODCAST)

Keep Your Stinking Regulations Off The Internet You Damned, Dirty Liberals!

President of American Commitment Phil Kerpen joins the Freedom Report podcast to discuss liberal's campaign to regulate the Internet like a public utility. His new campaign to stop Internet regulation by the FCC is aiming at sending a message by gathering 250,000 petitions in support of his fight. Should the Internet be considered a human right?


From the campaign:

At every turn, the Congress and the Courts have told the Federal Communications Commission to cease and desist in its efforts to regulate the Internet. Rather than heed these warnings, the Commission is doubling down, threatening to place the most onerous regulations imaginable on the Internet, subjecting it to 1930s-style regulations meant for telephone monopolies. 

The Internet is not a monopoly or a public utility. The Internet is a massive network of networks that has arisen, not by government fiat, but through free, spontaneous arrangements by investors, engineers, businesses and the consumers they serve. The FCC should heed the sober warnings of the two branches of government that have instructed it to cease and desist in this reckless, destructive effort to regulate the Internet.

In this episode, Kerpen explains what would happen if liberals were able to regulate the Internet the same way they do water and electricity. You can help stop them by clicking below and sending a message using your social network.
