From Campaign For Liberty:
The statists want you to believe that if you'd just hand over every last bit of your remaining liberties, everything would be fine.
They say freedom is "dangerous."
In fact, that's exactly how former U.S. Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) - now a high-powered Washington, D.C. lobbyist - recently referred to C4L's fight for Internet freedom, stating, "You can't just have a legal, free environment where there aren't any restrictions [on the Internet]."
Well, according to recent news reports, I'm afraid Chris Dodd may just get his way.
That's why - if you haven't yet done so - I'm counting on you to sign your C4L Internet Freedom Manifesto IMMEDIATELY.
As The Hill reported, the Obama Administration is busy circulating a five-page draft of an Executive Order giving the President control over virtually all private communication systems in America under the guise of "national security."
This is nothing more than an end run around Congress who - thanks to your help - just blocked a bill with similar provisions last month.
But that's not all.
Under the guise of improving broadband service, the FCC is launching an unprecedented assault on the American people, collecting all types of personal information from law-abiding citizens without their knowledge.
Under this scheme, government bureaucrats will be able to gain access to our personal information - including your website history, your tweets, Facebook posts, and even the physical home address associated with your IP address.
Just imagine government bureaucrats armed with whatever they want to know about you right at their fingertips.
What you read. What you watch. What you buy. What you say. Who you talk to.
Imagine the Internet - and with it, the entire technological revolution - SHUT DOWN with a ball of higher taxes, government snooping, and bureaucratic red tape.
This is where we're headed - not next month, not next week, not tomorrow, but NOW - unless folks like you and me who cherish our remaining liberties begin to fight back.
Quite frankly, if freedom is dangerous, I'm committed to living dangerously - and I hope you agree.
If you do, please sign your Internet Freedom Manifesto IMMEDIATELY.
Right now, statists in both parties don't think they have anything to fear as they chip away at our Internet freedom - so long as they make up a good enough excuse like "security" or "fairness."
They think you and I aren't smart enough to figure out what they're up to.
Or maybe we just don't care.
Or maybe we'll just put our heads in the sand and ignore the fight going on all around us.
Well, I'm counting on you to help me prove them DEAD WRONG.
I'm counting on your help.
P.S. President Obama's Administration is circulating a draft of an Executive Order giving the President control over virtually all private communication systems in America under the guise of "national security."
Just as bad, Obama's FCC is gearing up to collect all types of personal information about the American people - information that will be shared with other government agencies - including members of Congress.
That's why I'm counting on you to please sign your Internet Freedom Manifesto IMMEDIATELY.
