    The internet is used more widely than landlines. It is used for personal banking, our shopping centers use it for each purchase in connection with their accounting, our news and media use it. Shutting the system down would be turning off the world. It would be in essence, turning off the power to humanity and business. There isn’t an act that would justify such action outside a world war. People can’t quit living because terrorists and international espionage exist. These things have existed millennia. Believe me, our government has the means to protect itself and each of us are responsible for protecting our own information and not sharing information that would put our identity at risk. The government is there to protect our boarders, that its citizens may enjoy freedom. If you want any other kind of government, hand over your all your belongings. They’ve all but got them now. We need sensible smaller government, not a Dictator. This bill will give us exactly that.

    I lived in Siberia for 2 years just after the collapse of the USSR – the communist party maintained just such a “kill switch” on the phone lines connecting our entire region to the outside world. They made all lines go through this one single point, so they could flip the switch if the natives got restless… (they had experienced uprisings in my region before)

    As an AMERICAN (it matters not if I have conservative, liberal, independent, centrist or “other” political beliefs), I oppose this bill.

    Labeling this as a conservative or liberal mandate is ridiculous. It is communism.

    1) Im a a long time computer tech and work for a small ISP.
    2) They are able to do it, although it is not exactly easy. They would have to find a way to force private companies to shut down their DNS servers.
    Shut down the majority of US based DNS servers and relays, and 95% of the internet is dead around the world. So many countries outside of the US rely on the DNS servers within the US that it would likely shut down the internet.
    Yes this is a liberal socialist ploy to control the people. Lieberman is a liberal that claims to be a centrist, his voting record puts him in line with the Democrats 99% of the time.

    This would cause a massive Civil War within the US as well as massive world war from countries now shut out from the internet.

    STOP THIS BILL NOW, CONTACT YOUR SENATORS!

    Look who is sponsoring the bill. We have Mr Israel Joe Lieberman and Jay Rockefeller who is Rothschild and Bilderberg related.

    Both these clowns should not be allowed in our government.

    This bill must be defeated. The president can shut down the internet in an emergency if necessary. This is an attempt to take control and censor the internet and establish commercial control by corporations leaving average people without a voice, thereby eliminating free speech and our right to access the truth of what is happening. This is the only media we have that is not government controlled propaganda and we cannot allow them to take it away.

    This bill is extremely scary and a complete violation of our freedom. This has upset many people on all sides of the political spectrum. This bill needs to be stopped. Any person supporting this is either a complete fascist or doesn’t understand rights and the importance of the Internet. Many people have said this, and they’re right, “This would be worse than almost any cyberattack.”

    Apparently Egypt turned off access to the internet for their country. It can happen here and looking at egypt, I dont want that to happen here at all

    (yes I’m aware that the internet issue in Egypt is just a small portion of the issues in that country.)
