This is one for my buddies here in the US, but to my Canadian friends, I welcome you and in fact ask you to lend your own perspective because you live by a different set of rules than we here in the States have to live by.

I also wanted to get this out in every possible way I could think of so that enough Americans will say "NO!" to the legislation scheduled to be heard in Court on January 24th of this year.  (In case you don't know yet, the US government is pulling to censor the internet.  I will invite you to research the subject on your own if you'd like to further fill yourself in.)  Now, as a writer on this forum who includes fade-to-black scenes and mild violence in the story, I fear that this legislation would impede my ability to participate in the writing here.  That, my dear friends, would just break my heart.

In order to make the most impact, I will lend you a few things to consider instead of just telling you "Vote (or think, my Canadian friends) this way."

1. Censorship is normally good as it pertains to the keeping of inappropriate, harmful, destructive, or otherwise ill material away from the discovery of our young children.

2. In case you were not aware, it is YOUR responsibility as a parent to teach your child to stay away from bad things, be careful on the web and in the movie stores (if people still even rent movies from a video store anymore), and while surfing the television. Censorship of children is the parent's responsibility. You had a kid, you signed up for the 24/7/365/18 responsibility of monitoring what goes into your child's mind, while teaching him how to guard his own mind.

3. Relying on the government to provide anything for you EXCEPT the punishment of evildoers and defense of your land against enemies foreign and abroad, is the very definition of Communism. Government censorship of the internet information superhighway is a provision which falls outside these two Constitutional stipulations for the existence and operation of the United States government.

4. Legislated regulation of anything beyond the two Constitutional stipulations named above is the Modus Operandi of Socialism, which, according to Nikolai Lenin, is the stepping stone towards Communism.

5. We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.  (Preamble)

6. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  (First Amendment)

7. Now I want you to really hear this seventh and last point, and let it hit you like a tidal wave. Seriously think about it. Because when you realize the impact of government censorship of the internet, you will stand so opposed to it, the wind you make from turning around so fast will create a crop circle. ......... Follow the money, folks....................

If the government can't CONTROL it, they can't TAX it.

I do believe I just blew their ulterior motive WIDE open.

Thanks for reading, guys.  If you're an American, take action!!  If you're not, pray for us over here! lol
We are the lucky ones; we shine like a thousand suns when all of the color runs together.
I'll keep you company in one glorious harmony, waltzing with destiny forever.
Dance me into the night, underneath the moon shining so bright.
Let the dark waltz begin, oh let me wheel, let me spin.
Let it take me again, turning me into the light.
