I'd rather our representatives listened to the flesh people instead of the corporation people.

Half the reason our politicians are allowed to get away with what they do is that the American people aren't willing to stand up for themselves and fight back. We live in a world where we fear our government whereas our government should fear its people.

Until the people start fighting back on a larger scale, our "representatives" are going to keep abusing their powers to further their own agendas, as well as others.

If you look at laws being passed and how it currently looks in nearly all countries, even that is a joke :)

It's the only reason SOPA wasn't passed. People actually got off their duffs and made their voices heard. How is that a joke?

Because something else will take it's place :) Democracy is a illusion and will only reach up to a certain point, after that the government really doesn't care much.

The biggest thing that disappoints me is that every time we vote down regulation of the internet, they come up with more regulations. Today, as I type this, they're talking about small businesses having to share business / mission critical information with the government. Think of how the government treats information. The businesses will just have another door to rack up more patents and knock down the little guys. It kind of makes me sick.

It will continue to come back, as long as the companies behind it have money to bribe congresspeople with... which they always will.

With the "government works for people" statement, heh. :)
Government works for what brings in most money and couldn't care less about the people.

We can count on Hollywood to push in one direction, and Google and Wikipedia to push in the other.

There will be a compromise legislation, eventually.
