Free Broadband If You Vote Democrat

(Pelosi poses in front of some military hardware she voted against)

We've known for quite some time that the Democrats lack a cohesive plan. Pelosi told us we would see one in Dec. '05. That didnt happen. Then she said they would release their big plan in Jan. 06. Didnt happen (was she wrong or was she lying? Is there a difference?). We still havent seen the plan that will save the nation but once again we are promised it will be anyday.

Meanwhile, we wait.
In a speech to the Communications Workers of America on Tuesday, Pelosi said that America lags behind other countries that have universal broadband deployment. Pelosi said; but the Democrats' agenda "guarantees" that every American will have affordable access to broadband within five years.

Vote Democrat!! ITS FREE EVERYTHING!!! Free prescriptions, free health care, free rent, free college education, free abortions on demand, free child care, and now FREE BROADBAND!!!

How do they do it?
Its simple and it doesnt cost you one thin dime:
Soak the people who already pay the most taxes, the wealthy. Theres more of us than them, so all we have to do is legislate it!

They have lots of money, why should you want for anything? We can TAKE it from THEM! Those greedy corporate pigs will pay once you and I have our free broadband.....you just wait and see....

I just have a couple things to say about this.

First, the democrats aren't in control, even if they had a plan it wouldnt make a bit of difference. Second, I've heard plenty of plans by democrats working on one thing or another, maybe if you want specifics you should ask for them.

As far as broadband access goes, this could be an awesome tool for the government, and for the citizens. Government sponsored access could handle all voting, including a more accurate and direct method of straw polling, it could be used as a teaching tool, providing the public with all available data in the free education market, giving all american children access to the best and most accurate information, regardless of their location or how much money they may have. Using this type of formula it would be a productive expenditure of government money, unlike say yet another ICBM, which while it may be intimidating, it doesnt do a bit of good to anyone, and frankly, free internet access would be cheaper, the amount of dark fiber in america today is more than 200 times the used bandwidth, and those numbers are from my classes 4 years ago, and I know companies have been expanding their networks, heck with the crossover with cable doing ip telephony, even more fiber is free for data transmission. The actual cost would be minimal in comparison with said ICBM, or stealth bomber, or plasma ray space guns.

The Dems have been trashing the GOP for the last 6 yrs nonstop. Nonstop chatter about how every single solitary thing this administration does is wrong. What we want to know is what they would do better. They cant tell us. I am very serious when I say Pelosi has promised to unveil the Dem Agenda since last year. Quite simply, they have a plan but cant share it because mainstream America does not agree with them. They say they have a way to run things better and if they want my vote, they need to tell me WHAT they will do differently to make things so much better. They havent.

Broadband for everybody sounds wonderful. But who is going to pay for it? They arent going to stop working on plasma ray guns and the like because other nations are working on the same thing. We have to survive and military technology is everything. Thats one of the very few roles govt HAS to play. Defending and maintaining our way of life.
The govt has an obligation to protect us and ensure our survival from outside forces.
It does not have a right or obligation to take money from one person and give it to another so they too can surf the net, no matter how utopian it sounds.

Im sorry, did I use the phrase 'tax and spend' somewhere? No, I didnt.
And yes, the republicans have been spending money like drunken sailors and I dont like it. Happy?
