Yes exactly, this is one of those issues that confuses people. They don't understand what is going on, so they pick sides based on names only. Most
people don't like the FCC so they will side with McCain... even if they don't understand.. it makes me sick.
I was happy when I found out the FCC made rules to not allow ISP's to charge you money for every webpage you go to. The ISP's want to charge you
like your television provider does, channel by channel. If you want HBO you pay extra.... if you want ATS, you pay extra. The FCC made rules to not
allow that, and McCain is trying to block those rules.
Just so it is clear, McCain doesn't want a "free internet". He wants ISP's to be "free to do what they want with the internet", that includes
blocking websites like ATS and making us pay if we want to view it.
The FCC wants the internet to be "neutral" meaning, KEEP IT HOW IT IS NOW. McCain doesn't want that, McCain want's ISP companies to be able to do
what they want with the internet.
I hope McCain fails.
