Send some faxes to Congress too.
Turns out Ted Cruz (the Zodiac Killer) doesn't accept faxes but resistbot actually sent it through the mail for me. Nice.
I sent off a nice letter that took up two pages worth. I may have to make this a daily event until the vote takes place.

I remember back when I thought my opinion mattered to the government too. Before the second Iraq war happened and all the anti-war protests amounted to nothing.
And yet the republicans were dealt a massive defeat in 2006 based largely on the Iraq War. Yep, the opinions of the voting public don't matter at all!
Screw this, I'll just make my own internet with blackjack, and hookers!

BTW apparently it's not EVERYONE at the FCC that wants Net Neutrality gone.
This woman apparently was with the FCC during the Obama administration and is still with the FCC, and she's trying to get everyone to "raise a ruckus" about Net Neutrality.

Let it get repealed. It's really no big deal. Were the ISPs f***ing us before 2015? Cause that's when NN went into place.
Oh, they throttled Netflix? Well f*** Netflix. That piece of s*** is just a degenerate haven for liberal propaganda, and I don't recall the internet being so censored before NN.

You mean the opinions they were propagandized into having by a lying media?
This would move the policy back to what it was in 2015. It is impossible for a private corporation to censor the internet.
I don't buy the idea that corporations are untrustworthy with the internet but the Government can be trusted to control the internet. I don't buy the idea that people who call for the President to be kicked off of Twitter really care about internet freedom. I don't buy that Facebook and Google who are instant cancer, are pushing for this so it must be good.
The "handful of people that are in control" of our country are there because we put them there.
Did we though? I mean sure, folks voted for those who were up for election, but how many individuals who've been up for senate, house, or presidential election were selected, even indirectly, by the people as a whole? For that matter, how many of the unelected officials who have a hand in controlling the US were put into their positions of power as the result of public choice?
As is customary, if an employee is not doing their job, they get fired.
How do you "fire" a public official mid-term when they haven't done anything, technically, illegal?
Imagine advocating for this. Let me guess yer favorite philosopher is Mao?
Not sure where you're getting the impression that I advocated anything by simply pointing out that violence is an effective alternative to voting. Hell, I even alluded to the fact that the effect caused by violence is potentially not going to be the effect that you desired to cause.
Yer a legit idiot for even hinting that violence is the answer here.
An, not the. Not sure why you're getting so upset over someone stating the obvious fact that violence is an effective solution to political problems. It may not cause the effects you want, but that it's effective is inarguable.
For f***s sake at worst we are talking about how much yer internet bill would be to buy the access you want and you want to blow s*** up.
Not in the least! I have zero problem with everything being handled in a sane, sensible, governmental (though not necessarily political) fashion.
At the same time, however, if the US public as a whole or even a majority expresses their dissent with governmental policies and have zero success in changing those policies despite changing political figures as often as they change diapers then further political action is likely to be ineffective.
What next; civil disobedience? Chances are better than even that that will work about as well as the political approach if the political approach has already failed. I mean if Comcast has bought 13 house representatives in a row from a given state so that no matter what their stance on "net neutrality" was before being elected they start toting Comcast's line post-election then I suspect that Comcast won't care about people hosting a "sit in" on sidewalks around their buildings except to have them arrested and prosecute and/or litigate them until they go bankrupt or have to issue a public apology.
Also, I didn't say a thing about "(blowing) s*** up." Frankly, I'd think that a few nice, friendly assassinations would be a much better way to start out. Making "powerful" and "rich" individuals fear for their lives is far less likely to cause a PR disaster than using explosives with their penchant for collateral damage and service interruptions.
Again, that's not me advocating anything. I'm simply making observations. But hey, you do you. If you've bought into the line that there are only political solutions to political problems and that people should just be patient and vote then you hold onto that line with both hands and don't ever let go.
Just um, wear some gloves so that you don't get rope burn if someone yanks it out of your hands.
Logic is the antithesis of faith, else why is it that faith defies logic while logic denies faith?

If you think NN has anything to do with giving government control over the Internet, you've been brainwashed. This is easily refuted FUD.
This is the bill that's getting repealed:
There's nothing in it that amounts to "the government controls the Internet."
I don't buy the idea that people who call for the President to be kicked off of Twitter really care about internet freedom.
Did it ever occur to you that Twitter isn't the Internet?
I don't buy that Facebook and Google who are instant cancer,
You just said you don't buy the idea that corporations are untrustworthy with the Internet. Did you know that Facebook and Google are corporations? Or did you just mean ISPs?
