Yes, hacking computers today is the same as the H-bomb in the 1950's.

Argument opposed

Imposes excessive federal regulation on private industries and requires too much information sharing with the government. Not to mention the price tag.

Half of the time, I wonder if more hacking isn't done by our own government, rather than by foreign governments. The Feds can CLAIM that it was Russia, or China, or somebody else, but governments lie. These days almost anyone can become a hacker! Experience has shown that we're hardly ever more than one step ahead of hackers, and more often than not, it seems like we're just playing catch up! This is an area (ANOTHER area, I should say) where I don't want to see the federal government become too powerful. This sword could cut both ways. It also smacks of the Nanny State mentality. "Let Uncle Sam protect you!" Or "Big Brother knows best!" You know that old game that governments like to play: Create a crisis and lots of fear, then the gullible people will give you more power to "keep them safe!" And THAT means We the People lose more of what's left of our rights! Remember what David Rockefeller said: "All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order."

    The government does not have the expertise to protect the banks, electric, medical, etc... Let those industries do their jobs.
