Well you just proved how politicized it is already!
Policing net neutrality on the internet is NOT a legitimate biblical role for government. Government should NOT be in the business of subsidizing free speech at the expense of legitimate trade and freely negotiated commercial pricing. You have outlined very clearly that the internet is a government SOCIALIST tool.
Worse, churches and gospel preachers and sermonaudio are dependent upon such SOCIALISM to get their message out on the cheap.
Sermonaudio ought to be campaigning for the end of net neutrality as part of fighting the EVILS of SOCIALISM.
As Christians we should step up to the plate and pay full and fair pricing.

The subprime thing is indidcative of much larger problems. Yes, one of our biggest problems is the credit debt we carry but when our government allows our corporations to move so many jobs out of the country that we have to compete with the Chinese over wages then, well, we can't afford the housepayments either, much less the gasoline over 2.50 per gallon, 5.00 per gallon milk, etc, it's all just been too much inflation too soon. We the people need to demand that these companies come under some kind of extra man size tarrifs for bringing goods back into the country, or perhaps some sort of extra tax for them. It's a lot like the 70's economy, but we don't have anything to retrain for since they outsource the "better" jobs as well.
