    Help Stop the Government Takeover of the Internet.
    Contact Congress Now!

    Dear Fellow Conservative,
    Let me get right to the point. We need your help!

    The Obama Administration is moving full steam ahead with its plans to take over every sector of the U.S. economy. First it was the auto industry, then the health care, energy and financial sectors.

    And now, the Obama Administration is advancing a plan for a government takeover of the Internet, too
    That's right. On April 6th, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. made it clear that under current law the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has absolutely no legal authority to impose stifling and unnecessary regulations on the Internet. But instead of accepting the court's ruling, President Obama and his pals at the FCC announced recently that they are just going to ignore it.

    Specifically, the administration's plan now is to quickly side step Congress and arbitrarily change the law so that they can regulate the Internet using arcane rules written in the 1930s for outdated telephone lines.

    The FCC's announcement has already flooded the financial markets with uncertainty. And, if Obama's scheme to take over the Internet is successful, the result is sure to stifle Internet innovation, cost American jobs and bring to a halt the billions of dollars in private investment that American broadband companies are investing in high speed Internet networks.

    Take Action Now. Urge Congress to
    Stop the Government Takeover of the Internet

    The folks at MoveOn.org and other ultra-liberal organizations are euphemistically calling the regulations that will lead to a government takeover of the Internet "Net Neutrality."

    Don't be fooled. "Net Neutrality" is anything but neutral. Indeed, it is an unnecessary solution in search of a major problem.

    Specifically, Net Neutrality regulations, as proposed by President Obama's Federal Communications Commission, would virtually eliminate broadband companies' ability to manage their own networks, prevent web congestion and provide consumers with a safe, secure and reliable connection to the Internet.

    As the editors of The Wall Street Journal recently wrote, "FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski did their dirty work this week by announcing that he plans to reclassify broadband lines so his agency can regulate them under rules that were written for Ma Bell in the 1930s. This means subjecting the Internet to new political supervision--from the federal government and 50 state public utility commissions. The goal is to put one more industry under Washington's political thumb."

    Why make government bureaucrats in Washington the gatekeepers of one of the few bright spots of our nation's struggling economy - an Internet sector that continues to innovate, thrive, create jobs and provide enormous benefit for consumers?

    Urge Congress to Stop the
    Government Takeover of the Internet Now!

    Proponents of so-called "Net Neutrality" believe that all Internet infrastructure and online content should constitute public property - owned, operated and regulated by the government.
    And if the Obama Administration is successful in its efforts to commandeer the Internet's infrastructure, you better believe they will move to regulate Internet content next.

    Perhaps that's why Representative Marsha Blackburn appropriately calls Net Neutrality, "The Fairness Doctrine for the Internet."

    The failure of the Left on talk radio is well documented, so are they now turning to the Internet to solidify their political power and silence their critics - anyone who still believes in freedom and liberty?

    Fortunately, there is still time to stand up for growth and innovation and oppose yet another government takeover.

    But you must act now!

    We at the Center for Individual Freedom have launched the "Stop Net Regulation" campaign to engage the American people to oppose the Obama Administration's government takeover of the Internet.

    Please join the fight by writing Congress and contacting your elected officials in opposition to Net Neutrality today.

    Take Action: Tell Congress to Stop the
    Government Takeover of the Internet!

    Yours in Freedom,
