Question by Rick S: EVERYONE SHOULD BE CONSERVATIVE ON THIS ISSUE?
Net Neutrality. It means that no one website gets preferential treatment. The Internet, as it is right now with the FCC rules allows anyone with an idea and cash to setup a website and offer a service. Everyday people with great ideas can compete with big companies. Even the ones that provide the internet service. (e.g. Free Market) I’m not for big government but this is one thing the government should regulate. I, a conservative independent consider the Internet part of the “free market.”The internet is fine the way it is. If you want faster service, you pay for it. I want to conserve the way it is right now. Google and Verizon are trying to reach a deal to regulate the internet. This could hurt smaller companies from competing with them or the companies they partner with. They could do this by slowing down the service of their competiors while making their websites ultra fast or just keeping you from seeing their competior’s websites. Again, the way the Internet is now gives everyone an equal playing field. Also, if they don’t agree with your stance on the issues they can do the same. If big companies are allowed to regulate the internet, it could potentially hurt everyone. What do you all think?

The internet is free speech and should never be infringed upon by the government.
That even should include Obama’s cutoff switch.
