Subject: Please Don't Sell Our Future
We must maintain control of the internet.
I say this because we as a nation invested heavily in
it's creation and
it is a key strategic resource.
If foreign nations footed the bill of funding the research
1960's to present I would be a little more willing to
share control with
them. I feel that we the people of the United States
own it. It was
created with our tax dollars and created by our people.
away to other entities because they are whining is irresponsible
unfair to us.
The Internet is in some ways more important than nuclear
Control over the flow of information can be a strong
deterrent and, if
necessary, can be used defensively and offensively. I
think we as a
people have a right to use what is ours against our enemies.
away control of the internet would be like selling the
next-generation stealth fighters. We should not be willing
to level the
playing field. Other countries' lack of technology is
not our problem.
