Coming Soon to a Nation Near You?

Australia to Implement Mandatory Internet Censorship

Let's see. This is something that you expect to see in Beijing, or Havana, or even Pyongyang. Instead, here we have Australians.....Australians! mind you, getting ready to apply more broad based, mandatory content filters to the Internet.

Naturally, like all Left-Wing ideas such as this, it all started "for the children". They wanted to filter out child pornography. A laudable goal surely. Then, it was "adult content". Now, anything deemed "controversial" will be blocked at the borders. This is not about safety, this is about control. This is about making sure that dissenting voices and opinions can be suppressed and silenced. This program is not optional for these people.

Folks, George Washington put it best - "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force.
Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

As you get ready to go to the polls, remember what party wants to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Remember that what the Aussies are about to do is not all that far a stretch for a revived Fairness Doctrine. Remember what party currently controls the main stream media and wants to stop the blogosphere and Conservative radio shows from broadcasting dissent. Remember who the people are who respond to discourse not with logic, but with ad hominem attacks and rancor and hate, or even the Police.

The Democrats are about to have a filibuster-proof majority in the House and Senate. This means that Republicans will be forced to sit impotently on the sidelines as bill after Liberal bill is passed. There will be no checks, there will be no balances, there will be no stopping it. The amount of damage to Conservative and Libertarian ideals and principles will be immense.

Who do you want in the White House? No matter if you hate Bush, or hate the Republicans, or the war, do you really want the Democrats to have unfettered control of the legal system for at least 2 and more likely 4 years??

Are you ready to lose your voice in Congress AND your 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights?

How will you vote on Tuesday?
