EXCLUSIVE: GOP Platform includes Internet Freedom, language indicates influence of Rand Paul and libertarian-Republicans

 

 

Republicans could soon champion the protection of Internet Freedom as an official party issue, The Daily Caller has learned. Language in the final draft of the Internet freedom proposal was obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller.

 

The language was finalized on Tuesday, a source in the Republican Party told The Daily Caller, but it awaits party approval next week at the upcoming Republican National Convention.

 

Approval of the newly finalized draft language, however, would make the party the first of the two dominant political parties to fully and officially embrace Internet freedom. It also signals what Republicans view as important and necessary to keep the Internet open and free.

 

“Internet Freedomâ€, according to the finalized draft language, would entail the removal of “regulatory barriers†for technology businesses, resistance to international governance of the Internet and the “constitutional protection†of personal data.

 

“We will remove regulatory barriers that protect outdated technologies and business plans from innovation and competition, while preventing legacy regulation from interfering with new technologies such as mobile delivery of voice and video data as they become crucial components of the Internet ecosystem,†said the finalized draft.

 

“We will resist any effort to shift control away from the successful multi-stakeholder approach of Internet governance and toward governance by international or other intergovernmental organizations,†it said.

 

“We will ensure that personal data receives full constitutional protection from government overreach and that individuals retain the right to control the use of their data by third parties,†it said.

 

 

Progressive and Democratic proponents of a regulation-laden approach to the Internet have long dominated the direction of the tech policy discussion in Washington.

 

Having tried to make a claim over the term with their own brand of freedom from corporate influence over the Internet, some progressive and left-leaning libertarian advocacy groups have even gone so far as to promote a Declaration of Internet Freedom that codifies those principles.

 

Republicans have only recently ramped up efforts to dominate the conversation in bold fashion in recent months.

 

The GOP efforts are currently being modeled on the recent stance taken by the Ron Paul-founded Campaign For Liberty’s Technology Manifesto, as well as more right-of-center libertarian tech policy voices.

 

These voices include TechFreedom president Berin Szoka, Mercatus Center senior research fellow Adam Thierer, Associate Director of Technology Studies at the Competitive Enterprise Institute Ryan Radia, and Netcompetition president Scott Cleland.

 

It is also modeled off of the efforts of Republican politicians in both chambers of Congress.

 

California Republican Representatives Mary Bono Mack and Darrell Issa, Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Oregon Republican Rep. Greg Walden, Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul and Michigan Republican Rep. Fred Upton are some of leaders in the House on Internet issues.

 

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul have lead Republican efforts in the Senate.

Romney is data mining the internet trying to find

out who has money and if they are Republicans.

 

Will this bit of wizardy be turned over to the IRS

to find out who has money and hasn't paid the tax on it?

"SAN DIEGO — On a stage crowded with war heroes, Mitt Romney recently praised the sacrifice "of the great men and women of every generation who serve in our armed services."

 

It is a sacrifice the Republican presidential candidate did not make.

 

Though an early supporter of the Vietnam War, Romney avoided military service at the height of the fighting after high school by seeking and receiving four draft deferments, according to Selective Service records. They included college deferments and a 31-month stretch as a "minister of religion" in France, a classification for Mormon missionaries that the church at the time feared was being overused. The country was cutting troop levels by the time he became eligible for the draft, and his lottery number was not called.

 

President Barack Obama, Romney's opponent in this year's campaign, did not serve in the military either. The Democrat, 50, was a child during the Vietnam conflict and did not enlist when he was older."

Yo, Steve! Something for you cool brother. :beer:

 

 

 

 

Burgess Owens tells like it is

 

He is a good story, like Cain. He describes himself as a conservative and talks of progressive v. sociailism/liberal. He's also a mormon which also hints at his conseravtism as well.

 

I don't see much difference between progressiveness and liberalism. We hear about Blacks who don't like Obama but these are Blacks who NEVER liked Obama or Democrats. These Blacks are dragged out with the misunderstanding sometimes that they changed their opinion of Obama, Democrats, etc. but these were guys who NEVER had that mindset and if it weren't for Obama in the white house no one would listen to them. These guys (Cain, Owens, etc.) have been around for years but you never heard of them UNTIL Obama gets in the White House. A few have (Larry Elder, Armstrong, etc.) but not many. Black conservatives are getting a voice now because of Obama. Once Obama is gone they will not be given media attention again.

 

We keep hearing about the Black support for Obama and Dems and although its never good thing to vote in lockstep, many groups are like that. Mormons probably vote higher for Republicans. White fundamentalists vote in very high percentages for Republicans. Gays vote for Dems in very very percentages. I've mostly seen it reported when Blacks vote in such manner.
