I am writing to respectfully make clear that you need to put an immediate stop to Barack Obama’s plans to institute the "National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace" aka Internet National ID. This is merely a more palatable Obama-ism name for an agenda to isolate the American people during a fabricated “crisis”. The American military considers Internet shutdown as a “war provocation” in other dictatorships, and we the American people MUST recognize it could be used to harm us here in America, in the same way.
NO TO GOVERNMENT-ISSUED INTERNET NATIONAL ID, and NO TO PRESIDENT OBAMA’S “THOUGHT POLICE”
The fact is, an online national ID will NOT PROTECT ANYONE from the many viral, phishing and identity theft programs already in use. These sophisticated programs already have the ability to impersonate people online, including breach of passwords, Internet IDs and security "dongles." SHUTTING DOWN the Internet will not change that - it can provide no "protection" for Internet visitors. So what does Obama’s faux "Cyber-Security" proposal REALLY accomplish?
CONTROL! CENTRALIZED FEDERAL CONTROL. No thank you, Mr. Obama. The danger to be used against the American people is too great to be acceptable.
The Federal government and the Obama administration in particular have become adept at redefining principles, stifling free speech and implementing programs that would make notorious totalitarians squirm.
This agenda must end now. The Internet is the last bastion of vigorous First Amendment rights and expression we have under this odious Executive Branch, and we must refuse the Obama administration’s attempt to take control of it!
Therefore, it's vital individual activities must remain unhindered and uncontrolled by Federal government intrusions, snooping and regulatory encroachments in ALL guises.
President Obama, keep your hands off my freedoms!
Other dictatorships worldwide shut down Internet access as soon as they want to hide their persecution, murder and other mayhem from the world. We have seen multiple examples of that over the last couple of years in Libya, China, Egypt, etc.
America even has a secret “proxy cloud” strategy to prevent dictators from isolating their people from the world to more easily commit their atrocities. The secret aircraft “Commando Solo”, and even drones can be sent into countries to frustrate dictatorial efforts to subdue dissenters.
So the American strategy is to prevent other dictators from escaping the world’s eyes for their murder and mayhem – but no protection for our own American citizens?
There is NO LEGITIMATE purpose for any dictator to shut down the Internet in some sort of fabricated “crisis” situation. It is simply a dictatorial method for subduing dissention towards the dictatorship!
We don’t want that that here in America – we want limited government intrusion, with unlimited freedom and transparency.
I insist you immediately shut down Obama's Orwellian"National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace" -- TODAY!
Support it and stand with the dictators at your own political peril. We the people are watching.
