    If you repeal net neutrality you will once again be giving big business the power to control the internet for average Americans. You already took away our right to privacy from the internet companies, GOP. Will this issue be purchased also?

    Look, I didn't like the Obama administration, but Net Neutrality is a good thing. Nothing is protected online, even by Net Neutrality. but to get to information that you shouldn't have with Net Neutrality forces you to violate laws and become accountable to the people who's privacy you violate. Without it, stealing personal information becomes a lot easier and legally acceptable.

    Please do not remove net neutrality. This will only hurt the Americans you say you are trying to help: the poor and middle class. We need access to the internet that is free and equal, to innovate, learn, and develop our own businesses. Big business and the wealthy should not gain preferential access to the internet.

    Please vote to retain net neutrality. It protects the consumer. Eliminating it will hurt consumers.

    ABSOLUTLEY NOT! This gives the rich and wealthy an unfair advantage when it comes to the internet. Whether it be privacy, speed, etc.... this is ridiculous, and I urge my representatives to keep net neutrality rules!

    My dear representatives: please do not roll back net neutrality. This only helps the super rich, and big businesses, and this will hurt consumers. If you vote for a roll back, I assume your votes have already been purchased. And, you will give me a reason not to keep you in office.

    Do not allow net neutrality to be repealed. Do not allow ISPs to impede the flow of traffic to sites that they disapprove of.

    ISPs make enough money overcharging us as it is. They do not need to make more money charging us extra for what we pay too much for already.

    Repealing Net Neutrality does not benefit the American people at all. Please Vote No to repealing Net Neutrality. This is the right choice to make for the American people.

    Please do not rescind net neutrality. It is an overall good thing for the American people to have equal, transparent and fair access to the whole internet. Yes, it would be more profitable for some companies who could out their content more front and center and make it faster to access than others. But it could also stifle those who don't have the funds to buy a ride in the fast lane. That could in turn lead to effective censorship with some voices being deliberately 'banned' from reasonable access and that is not American. The diversity of formal media in this country has already been vastly reduced. We have already 'decided' that corporations are people (though without the same responsibilities and too many of our rights) and that money is free speech. These are so obviously counter to American ideals, so let's please not take yet another misguided step into silencing voices and access to information for those without the money (and political contributions) to be heard these days.

    Please fight this tooth and nail. This issue is up there with the Russian scandal threat, and repealing healthcare. In other words, it will lead to the destruction of societies and democracy!

    Repealing net neutrality regulation is a repeal of basic human rights. Do not support this nonsense.

    No. The argument "it doesn't slow down the internet, only if websites want to go faster than today's rates will pay for it" is illogical because imagine if they repealed the law in 1996, so yeah all our blogs and Vlogs, personal websites and new upstarts would be kept to dialup speeds, small upstarts like facebook, YouTube, even countable would either have to pay up to get speeds people could use or absolutely fail. Who would want to go to a website that takes a few minutes to buffer. Remember those buffer days? Just because we can't imagine how fast the internet will be in a couple years, trust me, it will be a lot faster, and do you want to be able to use that speed for all websites, even the ones that hasn't been invented yet, or do you think we have all the sites we need right now and it's time for only large companies to utilize the speed?
