Forum Post: The end of the open internet (CISPA)

CISPA, or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing Protection Act, is making it's way through Congress. It is essentially an internet spy bill and if it is voted into law, it will be one of the last nails in the coffin for American liberty.

Time to wake up people.

Write to your Congressmen/women that you are against CISPA.

Write to the President: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments

"CISPA’s creators, Reps. Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Maryland), insist that their bill is mindful of user privacy while providing important legal mechanisms that would encourage private companies to share information with the government in return for receiving critical help in fighting off cyber attacks."

Hmmm. Big benefits to corporations under CISPA. Very harmful to the American people. Who's more important?

I just wrote to my Congressman and the President. Everyone should or these crazy loons will not stop drafting and passing bills that erode our freedoms.

Alas, these "representatives" are so often beholden to and in the pockets of 'The Corporations' who perhaps can also get their chosen candidates into position despite the choices of the electorate at the ballot box.

Cryptic ?! IF so please watch :

This very disturbing documentary film is also viewable on 'YouTube' in six parts.

Thanks! Good point, but still worth trying to put pressure on them.
