    Net Neutrality is like an internet freeway system.
    Without it, the internet is like a tollway – or a freeway with toll lanes.

    ISPs want to control how people receive their content like cable. ISPs want to deliver it in a package they think you should have. You want more, you pay more. If they don’t like the content, or don’t reach a deal with a content provider, you don’t get a choice. If a competitor wants to provide something to you and the ISP doesn’t like it, you don’t get it. They can throttle your download speed, restrict websites, etc…They are already on the record having done this and the FCC has fought them in the past.

    ISPs have been pushing this for years and it was a matter of time until the gov’t gave in or was bought. The gov’t made it confusing on purpose, as they are wont to do on occasion – but it’s also the fault of users for not educating themselves. But hey! The ISPs said they wouldn’t do anything nefarious, so we can trust that nothing nefarious will happen. /s

    Modern_Whig_Party_owl.svg.pngThank you for your interest in The Modern Whig Party of America! By joining one of the fastest-growing independent political parties in the country, you'll give us the opportunity to keep you informed not only of our party's activities,but also many of the key political issues and policy questions of the day. We think you'll quickly find us both a great platform for civic action and a valuable informational resource.

    After completing the signup form you'll be redirected to our Donate page. While we rely primarily on the volunteer efforts of our members and leadership to achieve our goals, we do need some funds to accomplish some of the basic tasks every political party needs to do in order to compete. We hope you can make a small contribution -- the price of a cheeseburger at your local restaurant, or a takeout pizza on a Friday night -- to support our initiatives.

    Once again, thank you, and we look forward to working with you to make our country, and our world, a better place -- for all of us.

    I support passage of the American Anti-Corruption Act -- model legislation designed as a standard for action to blunt the corrupting effect of political contributions at the the local, state and federal level.

    I believe lobbying and ethics laws must be reformed; political fundraising must be transparent and donors must be publicly disclosed; and a system of citizen-funded elections must be installed. 

    I endorse all efforts to reverse the Supreme Court's decisions in the Citizens United and McCutcheon cases, and pledge to do all I can as a citizen to return control of my government to the hands of The People.

    The Modern Whig Party of America does not accept donations from corporations, unions, or special interest groups. 

    We are funded directly by volunteers and grassroots supporters. Please consider a small contribution today!
