The US Government, as we reported earlier, seems to be experiencing a little bit of a dilemma since the Republican party is pushing a version of CISPA that is not satisfactory in its current state, according to the Obama Administration.
This is good news to most of us, as it is a stay of execution before we enter the slaughter. What is at stake here is hordes of your private info, that even if you don’t care about, the implications reach far beyond yourself.
The government wants to give major companies like Facebook, and Google, and Yahoo (See what I did there, Bing?) special privileges to break your constitutional rights with immunity to share information not only with the government, but amongst themselves, unregulated, and unwatched.
Of course these companies think it is in their best interest to vote with CISPA, which is in contrast to their public outcries against SOPA, because this time they aren’t liable to what you are posting online.
This is why big companies had our backs when SOPA was here; if there is no liability to them, and in fact, they are given the holy grail, our advertising statistics and purchasing habits, to build better ad-selling machines. this isn’t about freedom, this is about business, and it is up to us to fight for our privacy till the last last megabyte is pried from our cold dead hands.
To find out more about what you can do, CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN. Tell them that they wont see another vote so long as you have a voice if they don’t vote for freedom.
