I wish it to be known that I do not approve of or support the extension of FTC powers and enforcement. The laws and policies that we have at present are fine and do not need expanded or changed. Any further incursion of our rights would be nothing more than a farce and an effort to control free communication. People are not stupid nor do we forget history and realize veiled attempts at trying to control the messages and information available to the masses. Hitler, Lenin, Mao and others were able to make “small changes” in order to start to gain momentum for their agendas and gain control of the communication mediums. So stop trying to pull one over on people, we are saying NO.
