Senate Moves To Seize The Internet – Do We Need More Government Censorship?

A leaked memo from Sen. Mark Warner’s office details a plan for the US government to massively interfere in the Internet. They want to “protect” us from “fake news” and from foreign influence. Will the US government acting more like the Chinese or Iranian governments really protect us from “bad guys”?

They are censoring Alternative and Independent media of truth tellers activists. They FB have shut down a ton of Herbal, Natural cures. It is an outrage. We don't need Government being our babysitters and control our internet and minds like mainstream media.

Alex Jones was the guinea pig. Watch. .Ron Paul and others will lose their voice on social media. So like Hitler!

It seems to me that adding filters for people to decide what they want to see rather than heavy handed censorship would have been the path of least resistance to solving this problem.

I will vote for you Ron, but please stop bashing Bernie, that's why you lost a lot of support.

I am a web developer and have worked with several frameworks and technology stacks. It saddens me to see the internet used this way. I'd like to hear people's ideas on how I could use my skills to advance the message of freedom. Keep in mind I work for a startup and am pretty busy but still want to try and do a little here and there.

P.S. @Ron Paul and @Daniel McAdams thanks for the refreshing perspective!

I think these big corporations like google… are acting like tyrants. They have to be split into small entities, like it was done to AT&T …

Clinton is just part of the Blue Gang.
Government is Mafia.
This is a fight between two Gangs- The Reds-v-The Blues.
Makes no difference who you vote for as the result is always more of the same.
It's the unelected ones who decide who is President, not the people.
Trump has been hired as the great divider as the game being played is Divide and Conquer.
If voting changed anything it would be illegal.

Many people are using new tech and the censorship is leading people to it. The best thing to do is to get off of these old platforms first and onto the fast-growing ones.

End censorship. Freedom of speech and press.

Daniel, I have a lot of sympathy for you as you inadvertently got involved for defending a colleague. However, your worry that the US may “sink” to the level of China in terms of censorship is misplaced to say the least. If you have a chance to visit China, you will be pleasantly surprised that the Chinese people’s freedom is not as restricted as the distorted images the West’s mainstream media have managed so successfully to implant into the minds of their audience. You must also be aware that the US is engaged in a long-term destabilization program of China… Read more »

Mr Ron Paul I am sad to inform you that your government has censored us Swedish citizens since these social media platforms came to market and still continue to do so. So this is just shit which goes around, coming around. Just look at how your Western world has collapsed to a disaster in every way. But it is just karma, you do deserve this for what you have done to our people and your society will just get worse and worse until the day you start to make us right.

Report your phone and internet service provider to the public utility commission. They can't control the internet. Everyone report them to PUC.

Generally, governments are concerned with the well-being of those who are governed, to a similar though slightly lesser degree than the farmers who care for the well-being of their cattle. They need your 'milk and meat'.

The government is already doing it.
Facebook, YouTube and Google are the government.

Declaration of Internet Freedom | 23 August 2018
Petition: http://www.chooseliberty.org/declaration-of-internet-freedom/?sr=c11668043

The marriage of “Big Tech” and Big Government threatens the very foundation of our Republic.

Internet Giants like Facebook, Twitter, Google, and others are now wading deep into the business of censoring speech to carry out the bidding of government actors.

That’s why I’m counting on concerned men and women like you to TAKE a STAND and sign your Declaration of Internet Freedom right away!

We must act now to defend Internet Freedom before it’s too late.
For Liberty,

Dr. Ron Paul
Chairman, Campaign for Liberty

The ADL & SPLC, they are a few of israel's many corporatist puppet NGOs pushing for censorship and "hate" speech laws. Not just in the US, but worldwide!
It's not too uncommon knowledge that several politicians and silicon valley are puppets of AIPAC and israel.
I would suggest looking into Know More News a.k.a Adam Green and Johnny Gat. They have many informative videos on this stuff.

Follow the money

Dr. Paul,
There is a fledgling social media site called Steemit. It is a decentralized platform free from censorship and advertising . I would appreciate your view and investigation into this platform and the Crypto sphere.
Thanks
