The American government is at it again. 
Buried in the holiday season the FCC is voting on repealing Net Neutrality on the 14th of December. 

If you are in America. Speak up for your right not to pay for free speech. Say something so that small businesses won’t have to pay to have a chance online and millions will lose their jobs. Say something for the free informations at your fingertips. Speak up for your weird hobbies and those who have nowhere else to turn but online. 
They will not take it all away in one swell swoop. They will "just" have the right to.
And so they will slowly make you pay for more and more.
You, the sites, your rights, everyone will pay.


 What you can do

 
Verizon Store Protests on December 7
At Verizon stores USAwide on December 7, one week before the vote, activists will meet at 5 p.m. local time to put pressure on Congress and demand a change. Pai used to work on Verizon’s legal team, so the choice of store is intended to “[shine] light on the corruption” and expose Pai’s conflict of interest. Events are planned across the country, including Indianapolis, New York and San Francisco, but other cities are welcome to organize their own and add it to the list. The site says the protests “will be quick, fun, and 100% legal.”
Washington, D.C. Protest on December 13
On December 13, the day before the vote, a team of organizers called “Defend Net Neutrality” have planned a protest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a venue as-yet undecided.

I hate the government...with everything that’s going on, and them turning our country into a worldwide joke...I’m almost ashamed to be an American, and I don’t want to feel that way...people need to stop this corruption, failure, and just plain evil...Please!

This is definitely a kick in the shins. Basically, this is more of a governmental scheme for Trump to get more money, like he doesn't have enough. Frankly, I'm not that worry knowing people use the internet frequently. So we do have a chance on winning. Hope for the best. :)
