Net neutrality is anything but

Just as the Affordable Care Act isn’t affordable, net neutrality isn’t about neutrality. It has nothing to do with fairness, nothing to with anything President Obama and the media are telling us about. It has everything to do with government control. The Internet has always been wide open and free, the very embodiment of free speech, and the left can’t stand it. Liberals want government to control the Internet just like it controls most everything else, and designating the Internet as a utility will give the government brand new authority over what has heretofore been a wide-open playing field. The Internet has always functioned perfectly well without government micro-managing and it has absolutely no business sticking its nose in the web. But leave it to President Obama to invent a problem that needs fixing so he can spread government’s tentacles even deeper.
