Subject: Please leave the Internet how it is.......FREE

I am not quite sure what government agency or official is going to be reading this, but i will just make my comments generalized. Please leave the internet free, it has been working fine for all these years and if you go and start taxing websites because a few internet providers want you do, well thats just wrong. I know there are probably a lot of reasons why you want to charge, companies like Google are getting fat, well other companies can do the same thing, don't blame the companies, blame the Internet providers for not thinking of it first. As for safety on the internet, parents need to be more attentive about what is going on with their children and the internet if they want them to be safe. We have had the internet in my household since 1996, I am 26 years old now and I am safe, and when I am ready to have children I will watch their every move online to keep them safe. Parents need to be more attentive to their children rather than give them their own computer in their room and not watch what they are doing online. So I ask you, please keep the internet free, if you have to charge people to go to websites the internet will cease to exist, being free is what makes the internet great. Having the internet free without taxes to go to websites is the best thing going right now and if you ruin it by not allowing net neutraility think of all the generations after yourselves who will suffer.
