Rand Paul asks, “Do you want the Internet slowed by red tape?”

It’s not too late to stop Net Neutrality. Use our system. Tell Congress to pass S.J.Res.14 & HR 1212. Re-tweet this.  
If you oppose what Rand Paul calls the “red tape” of Net Neutrality rules, then please…
Tell Congress through's “Don't let bureaucrats control the Internet” campaign.
You may borrow from or copy this letter…

The FCC will impose “Net Neutrality” rules in June, claiming that all Internet data should be treated equally.
But their rules create red tape that will…
* drive small broadband providers out of business
* hamper innovation by discouraging broadband investment
Net Neutrality will NOT bring fairness or equality!
It will prevent Internet Service Providers from having the option to charge more to Netflix, Youtube, and other high-bandwidth content providers. This could create traffic congestion and slower connections.
This isn't “neutrality,” this is Corporate Welfare!
You should pass Sen. Rand Paul's resolution (S.J.Res.14) expressing Congressional disapproval of the FCC's broadband Internet access regulations.
Also, pass Rep. Marsha Blackburn's Internet Freedom Act (HR 1212). It would…
* Nullify these rules
* Prohibit the FCC from imposing similar rules in the future
Pass these bills!

But please don't stop there. Spread the word on social media, such as Facebook.
Are you seeing Downsize DC Facebook posts in your Timeline? Chances are, you're not, thanks to changes made by the social media giant. But the fix for that is simple…

  1. Go to
  2. Click on the Like (Liked) button, in the top of the page banner
  3. A drop-down menu displays, and in it, click Get Notifications

It's that easy.
Whether we like it or not, Facebook is a necessary part of Internet outreach these days. If you're on Facebook, you can grow the Downsize DC Army by promoting these Action Items there.
Thanks for helping to expand the volume and reach of Downsize DC.
And thank you for being a DC Downsizer,
Jim Babka
President, Inc.
