GOP convention platform to include Internet freedom (Lamar Smith can suck it)
Dude, what’s going on with the Republican convention? Gold standard, auditing the Fed and now Internet freedom? This means no SOPA or PIPA under a Romney administration. Big government Republicans who want to control the Internet like Lamar Smith and John Cornyn must be pissed. This also surely must piss off Marxist Democrats who along with big government Republicans want to control the Internet (like everything else in your life.)
The language was finalized on Tuesday, a source in the Republican Party told The Daily Caller, but it awaits party approval next week at the upcoming Republican National Convention.
Approval of the newly finalized draft language, however, would make the party the first of the two dominant political parties to fully and officially embrace Internet freedom. It also signals what Republicans view as important and necessary to keep the Internet open and free.
“Internet Freedom”, according to the finalized draft language, would entail the removal of “regulatory barriers” for technology businesses, resistance to international governance of the Internet and the “constitutional protection” of personal data.
