Rand Paul is now bought and paid for by the telecommunications companies

Once a shining beacon inside the Republican ideology, Rand Paul has turned to the dark side.  He wants the government to regulate that the government shouldn't regulate the internet.  Huh?

Rand Paul, you don't know what you are talking about so clearly you have a hidden political agenda.  In fact, the libertarian viewpoint on net neutrality should be to make sure the government forces companies to keep all internet traffic neutral. That requires no more government. That levels the playing field for startups and people. To do otherwise is to make the internet unfair.

And more importantly, the libertarian viewpoint on the internet should be to allow technical people to govern the internet NOT the politicians. So why are you involved?

To force the Senate to regulate the internet by challenging the FCC's rules is to throw your lot in with the companies and not the people.  Not a very libertarian attitude at all.

I conclude therefore that Rand Paul is bought and paid for.
