United States Congress

To not pass SOPA

SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, is a bill designed to help fight copyright infringement on the internet. While the intent of the bill is to stop illegal downloads of music, movies, games, etc., the vague wording of the bill means that websites such as Google (and any search engine for that matter), Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc. (essentially, any website where people can legally obtain unrestricted information) can also be effected. This could lead to a dangerous slide into restrictions of freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, specifically, Freedom of Speech and, to a certain extent, Freedom of the Press.

      I am an American who can no longer remain silent as our government and big business steal our liberties. The U.S. will join the list of other governments that censor the internet like China, N, Korea, Iran, Cuba, and Syria. Not a good list to be on!!!

      Our government no longer represents us. We must unite to stop the greed and corruption so we can once again have a government by the people, for the people.

      They steal away our liberties, jobs, homes, and our future. With the help of our government not one bankster was audited, charged, jailed or held accountable for the looting of America. While thousands of citizens were pepper sprayed, beaten, arrested and denied their 1st Amendment rights for protesting their fraud, bailouts, and bonuses paid for by you.

      If you’re here signing a petition then consider joining a group of your choice. Be loud; be visible so our government can see our numbers. Our country was started with citizens protesting and throughout our history has brought about our greatest changes. Freedom is not free; sometimes you have to fight for it.
