Good to see more advocates for a less restrictive market stepping up and getting more aggressive with vocalizing their concerns. That’s what the Center for Individual Freedom did in a blog post last week addressing the apparent overreach that the Federal Communications Commission has been executing for almost three years.
Sometimes I think regulators, the FCC included, forget which country we are living in. Seems to be a love affair with all things extra-national no matter what side of the aisle the trouble maker sits on. Newt Gingrich would like us to use some Chilean form of retirement accounts to satisfy the social security issue. Julius Genachowski constantly reminds us that South Korea has greater broadband deployment and speeds than we do. Let’s not forget that the Republican Party believes that President Obama wants to make a European socialist system.
The last charge is pure nonsense, of course, but Mr. Genachowski and his FCC sure tempt many to fall for that lie when his FCC focuses on everything else but how best to get spectrum into the hands of carriers that are in the best position to put that national resource to its optimal use.
