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 from the
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. Giving control
away to other entities because they are whining is irresponsible and
unfair to us.

The Internet is in some ways more important than nuclear technology.
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. Giving
away control of the internet would be like selling the plans the
next-generation stealth fighters. We should not be willing to level the
playing field. Other countries' lack of technology is not our problem.
