Dear Net Neutrality supporter,

Today we're delivering a million petitions and letters to Capitol Hill at a press event with Senators Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) and spokespeople from our coalition. We'll be speaking in support of the Senators' "Internet Freedom Preservation Act" -- which needs to pass in the Senate for enforceable Net Neutrality language to become law.

The million-letter milestone is remarkable but our work is far from over. Thousands of Americans have stepped forward to defend Internet freedom, and yet Congress may still cave to corporate lobbyist pressure to re-write laws that hand over control of the Internet to the likes of AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

My opinion is that Congress will cave to big business who want to control the internet, the last frontier of freedom. The big lobbyists will not be happy until they control the net and decide what you and I should or should not view. If we pay the big bucks our pages will load faster what it all boils down to is the consumer taking a hit from big business, Congress don't care about a million signatures but if those million vote then they will care big time.

Americans sooner or later will have to take a stand on this and this November is a good a time as any if we vote and show Congress we will not bow to the lobbyists, then they will heed and the power will be in the hands of the citizens not a bunch of lobbyists out to make a quick buck off of us Americans.

What the House and Senate thinks of themselves?

What the House Ethics Committee and aides are up to?

What Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt is up to?

Price is no object as long as it's the tax payer is footing the bill.

This one is a classic but I am not shocked in the least.

Just a few links I put together for you guys to keep you reading, remember,,VOTE.
