How naive are the supporters of net neutrality?

ok first of there is no internet provider doing what net neutrality is supposed to protect against. This is just a stepping stone for the government to regulate the internet. This WILL increase internet prices and allow for tiered internet pricing doing the exact opposite of what people think this bill will do. How stupid are people? We must repeal net neutrality immediately!! Also the market can regulate internet companies that do block sites etc..the government doesnt need to regulate this.

Update:

food fight you are an idiot i have comcast and can access net flix just fine the market will keep it this way most place have more than one internet provider...

    Oh, please! What, do you work for Comcast? The net neutrality that advocates have favored (and that has not been sufficiently enacted) would prevent the big ISPs from limiting or otherwise burdening our access to the open Internet. How naive do you have to be to argue against that?

    Large internet service providers have already laid out proposals for varying degrees and types of limitations. They want to direct people to sites that make them money and away from sites of competitors. Understand what is going on and stop acting as a shill for the ISPs.

    Net neutrality means you can't favor some data over others, which the guidelines do protect against.

    But yes, as it is now, it may pave the way to billing based on usage instead of being unlimited. This will lower the cost to low end users though.

    Did we need it? Probably not. But it sounds like you're confused on it too

    Without it your ISP decides what you can see on the internet, and what you can connect to the internet. They will stop all competitors when they own a competing business. Like Comcast already purchased their own news company NBC and has announced they will block Netflix because people have started to use it instead of their cable business. Do you think Comcast is going to let you go to Fox instead of their news site? If you do your a moron.

    How did you learn this idiotic rhetoric from Comcast?

    Edit: You can access NETFLIX because we always had net neutrality. What Republicans want is to remove net neutrality. It is not new. It used to be handled by law and that law sunset.

    This question shows how confused you are. The FCC is ensuring net neutrality and the marketplace needs to be regulated if we aren't to be gouged for now free surfing. Did Glenn Beck give you this idea, because it is moronic.

    They don't understand that this is the governments foot in the door for their propaganda or ability to block the truth.

    They will be able to shut off Wiki-Leaks and other sights that they do not like from your eyes.

    This is just the first step in giving the FCC control over talk radio, something the libtards are pushing for because no one will listen to far left talk radio.

    Don't worry--the courts will continue to shut down the FCC's power grabs until Congress acts to grant them regulatory control. Hopefully with the new Congress, we'll be protected from that for at least two more years.
