It’s time to step up and voice your concerns because we now have a bit of momentum. Here’s how to strike back against Internet censorship.
Here is why you should consider taking at least a few minutes to get involved.
I’ve blackened the DI banner today as a symbol of my concern regarding efforts to pass SOPA (pending in the House) and the Protect IP Act (pending in the Senate).
Free Press has offered a page indicating the senators who are pro, con and on the fence. If you plug in your zip code, you will be presented with phone numbers for your senators and it LITERALLY takes only a minute to voice your concern to the staffer of your senator. I called my two senators in two minutes. Please join me in voicing your concern to your elected officials. You will be doing your part to use logic, fairness and reason to oppose $90 million in campaign contributions. Reason sometimes work, as demonstrated by today’s reversal of course by Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Dan Solin points out that it’s more profitable to invest in socialist countries:
According to one report, for the 39 years ending December 31, 2008, the annualized stock returns of “socialist” countries (like Norway, Denmark, Hong Kong, Sweden and France), exceeded the stock returns of the U.S. Unlike the U.S., these countries aggressively curtailed economic freedom. It appears there is an inverse relationship between higher returns and economic freedom. It is also difficult to conclude that government intervention in private industry is a precursor to lower returns.
