Replying to: FCC=Cosumer Advocacy by Slammer
Let's be clear. Nobody on here is talking about no regulation. The concern of most of us is not so much regulation as abuse of power. There needs to be guarantees put into place that the FCC is not the be all and end all decision maker. Right now there really isn't. The FCC is an appointed board that does not have to answer to the public directly. Because of that, there does need to be some oversight regardign there decisions. personally, I don't disagree with the roaming agreements. I don't disagree with obstructing, or at least slowing down VZW's spectrum rampage. But I do disagree with any government body having to much authority in the private sector. Events of the last several years have made me very nervous. I will honestly say, I love my country. I'm an Army veteran. But right now, my government makes me extremely nervous. We've reached a political equivalent of Animal Farm that is becoming dangerous. As I stated in a previous post, as soon as the government gets a foot in the door of any private sector industry, they use the other foot to kick the door in. I'm not advocating deregulation. I'm advocating caution in the face of a potential abuse of power.
