Just because your friends are poorly informed doesn't mean everyone is poorly informed. And the idea that an elite few should make a decision based on your assumption that people are too stupid obviously comes from the fact that you do not support LS in their efforts to legally use what they have paid for.

Personally, I don't feel like this should be "decided by the people" unless we are talking about a jury. This is an open and shut case. The GPS industry is making tons of money off the fact that they have improperly used spectrum that they were never allowed to use in the first place. That isn't even disputed. The only thing being disputed is whether or not the FCC should enforce the law against a giant money making industry. If anything, the FCC is going to use this "public opinion info gathering" session to allow GPS companies to make public service commercials condemning the big bad evil LS for "taking away America's GPS". The FCC and the Federal gov't are there to protect LS from being infringed upon not protect the multi-billion dollar GPS companies from having to follow the law. When corporations make law, that is Fascism. Quit making such a grey argument in such an easily decided black and white case.
