Cynthia Thielen on Technology

 


Strongly supports Net Neutrality

Before the Internet, most free speech had to pass through those who owned the various media in the world. With the Internet, everyone has the capability at no cost to present his or her point of view.

But what if you could not reach those individual blogs? What if your only news source on the web were the major networks? What if they turned the Internet into the same medium as all of our other methods, where it would cost money to get your message out? And the bigger the audience, the more it would cost. This is what the telecom companies want to do. They want to be paid for the size of audience each website gets.

As a Republican I strongly believe in the power of the free market. Net neutrality gives us the freest market, for both ideas and products, in the history of civilization. As a Republican, as a supporter of open political discourse for all, and as a supporter of small businesses both today, and those yet to be created, I strongly support Net Neutrality.
