CISPA is a radical attack on your online privacy

1 post / 0 new

It looks like the highly-controversial internet security bill known as CISPA – which passed out of the Republican House of Representatives last week might be one of the best pieces of legislation money can buy. The Center for Responsive Politics uncovered that CISPA’s chief sponsor – Republican Representative Mike Rogers from Michigan – has received $175,000 from corporations that are in support of CISPA and have lobbied for the law.

So even though CISPA is a radical attack on your online privacy – Congressman Rogers doesn’t care because he needs to be re-elected. In any other country – this would be considered bribery. But in America, thanks to the Supreme Court, it’s simply called “free speech.”

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
