Petition to Protect Network Neutrality

Network Neutrality, often referred to as Net Neutrality or simply NN, is the idea that all websites on the internet are in essence created equal and that an internet user should be able to access any and all websites on the internet at the same speed. Recently Internet Service Providers have been pushing to do away with Net Neutrality and turn the internet into a medium comparable with Cable Television. Users would pay for a certain package of websites. If the user wanted to visit other websites they would have to do so at a "throttled" speed, meaning it would take much longer to access those websites not in the package. Almost all of the Internet Service Providers are doing this as a way to increase their own companies revenue. By signing this petition I believe: -That Network Neutrality can be the only policy by which Internet Service Providers run by. -That Network Neutrality should be made a federal policy that is to be obeyed by all jurisdictions that are governed by the federal government. -That Internet Service Providers should have no place in deciding the policies by which the internet is run. -That it is deeply concerning how the discontinuation of Network Neutrality may be in violation of the protections of free speech provided in the first amendment of the United States Constitution

That is the absolute polar opposite of it's intent. Meanwhile, many of the same people are pushing COICA, which is exactly that. How can we combat this when so many people will buy the lie and refuse to read the bill when the lie is refuted?
