He do have some conservatives in DC, and Louie Gohmert is pushing Obama’s FCC on Net Neutrality. He told Obama’s rubberstamp, Tom Wheeler, “You’re playing God with the Internet.” And he’s making great points on innovation.

Previously at RedState we discussed how FTC is as out of control as FCC and we need a new breed of regulator to fix it.

Well now it turns out FTC has the same transparency issues FCC has. FTC took secret testimony against Sysco in the US Foods situation. A Federal judge is now having to order them to release information.

Unusual, except in the Obama era.

The Heritage Foundation is one of the most important components of the conservative movement. They’re a true Think Tank, bringing together many smart people to speak intelligently on many issues. And I agree with Jim DeMint’s predecessor at Heritage, Ed Fuelner, when he says Net Neutrality “needs to be eradicated, not embraced.

So Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, the one that we weren’t allowed to see what was in it until it was passed, is finally out, and it’s anti-free speech, anti-innovation, and illegal. It was sold as one thing, but there’s a whole iceberg of problems beneath.

They tell us that regulating things like a utility is good, when it comes to Net Neturality, but New Zealand is clear evidence to the contrary.

Back when the first horseless carriages came onto America’s streets, they were a big deal. They were dangerous, they were annoying, but people wanted to own them and to drive them anyway. They had downsides, but the upsides outweighed them. They were disruptive innovation in practice.

Had Barack Obama’s regulators been around back then, they’d have banned pizza delivery from using cars.
