Not to mention this
Until conservatives in general realize that they are racist or bigoted, the people who are "conservative" will continue to vote for them.
The whole Roy Moore debacle kind of woke some people up, I think. It's just a shame it took something that drastic to turn even centrists' heads
Considering a whole bunch of his voters were saying "We would have been honored if our 14 year old wanted to day a 40 year old Judge.".... No.. No it didn't.
Outside of Alabama I mean. And yeah, most of the people who were turned were already questioning their conservative ideals
It's a start, though
Not even going to bother with how stupid the premise of this thread is, just wanted to say it's pretty adorable to think Ajit wouldn't get anything for killing net neutrality.
I'm sure ISPs argued quite persuasively about the benefits (to his wallet) of doing such a thing. That's how the world works.
Given the election was decided by about 21,000 votes and 1.3 million votes were cast... No, I'd beg to differ. Remember this was an election that for a lot of people the choice was either an accused pedophile or an actual murderer of babies(Doug Jones is pro choice, this in no way actually makes him a murderer imo). I'd say it's more accurate to say the election didn't so much as woke people up, it just got them off their asses to vote.
Republicans fall in line, Democrats fall in love. Democrats always need a hero to follow or a villain to defeat, Republicans just need to be told to vote. Unless 2018 and 2020 give us somebody to fall in love to, expect nothing to happen anywhere even in light of all the rage online.
The lack of a broadband free market is exactly why we need a net neutrality law in the first place.
Simply put, there isn't one. Try pulling up the list of broadband providers for most areas, and youll see what I mean- most have either 0 or 1. Im part of the lucky "1" group, since Comcast is the only broadband provider in my area. If Comcast starts blocking stuff, I'm not switching, cuz I don't have anyone to switch to.
If a free broadband market was a thing, I can guarantee you no one would care about the repeal. But it's not.
Also, at least speaking from my point of view, I'd prefer net neutrality enforcement under Title I, which was what we had before Verizon sued. But Verizon ruined a good thing, so that's not possible anymore. Until Congress passes a net neutrality law, we need Title II.
And if you think Ajit Pai cares about the consumer, you couldn't be more wrong. I'm gonna link you to this article about the current FCC's claim that having one provider means a market is sufficiently competitive.[/QUOTE]
People don't (have time to) pay attention to how mental Trump and the GOP would be. Fuck, I expected there to still be some spines somewhere in the party to stop the insanity.
And the alternative was a Goldman whore, so there was no hope for the change that was betrayed, and thus no one cared.
You forgot Trump put the same Goldman guy on his cabinet.
