I am asking for the issue of net neutrality to be added for discussion. Please call the FCC as per the following instructions:
Ajit Pai, FCC Chairman
Why you’re calling this office:
This organization is driving legislation related to the issue.
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a concerned customer from Tampa.
[IF FCC]: I’m calling to express my disapproval that the FCC is trying to kill net neutrality and the strong Title II oversight of Internet Service Providers. Preserving an open internet is crucial for fair and equal access to the resources and information available on it.
[IF CONGRESS]: I’m calling to express my support for Net Neutrality and a fair and open Internet. I ask that [Senator’s or Rep’s Name] contact FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and demand he abandon his plan to overturn Net Neutrality and Title II oversight. It is time for Congress to take a stand and urge Chairman Pai to cancel the vote in December.
Thank you for your time and attention.
Here’s the rest of the story…
On December 12, 2017, an election in Alabama was taking place in Alabama for the vacant US Senate seat previously held by the US Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The republican candidate Judge Roy Moore, an alleged pedophile, based on credible reporting, was challenged by the democratic contender Doug Jones. The State of Alabama leans so heavily towards the republican party that the candidate Judge Moore was favored to win. (See: Total of 9 Women Have Come Forth To Tell All About Judge Roy Moore)
Even the Governor Kay Ivy of Alabama has stated for the record that while she believed the women’s accusations against Judge Moore to be true, she still planned to vote for Judge Moore because it was that important to fill that vacant US Senate seat with a republican party member. Many Evangelicals have continued to support the election of Judge Roy Moore despite numerous women having come forward with stories of Judge Moore courting sexual favors from teenagers, one who was only 14 while he was the local district attorney in his early 30s.
The democratic candidate Doug Jones has overcome the odds, to victoriously be elected as the next US Senator from Alabama. This event is in the class of a true miracle as this state has deservedly been reputed to be dependably republican for decades.
There was the possibility of a last minute spoiler but his candidacy never had any traction. As per the 11/27/17 Washington Post report by Michael Scherer, “A retired Marine colonel who once served as a top aide to White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly launched a long-shot write-in campaign to become Alabama’s next senator.”
“Lee Busby, 60, of Tuscaloosa, Ala., said he thinks that the allegations of sexual impropriety against Republican nominee Roy Moore created an opportunity for a centrist candidate to win more than a third of the state’s votes in the Dec. 12 special election.”
Doug Jones (63 years old) is a very credible Democratic candidate who as a former US Attorney, became famous for having successfully prosecuted members of the Ku Klux Klan who bombed a black church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963, killing four girls.
Why Was it Absolutely crucial for a democrat to win this seat?
If a democrat won this seat, there’s a real chance for the democratic party to become the majority party in both the US Senate and the US House of Representatives in 2018. As per a 11/9/17 CNN report by Eric Bradner, “One thing strategists in both parties were sure Democrats couldn’t do in the 2018 midterm elections is take control of the Senate away from Republicans.”
With a win by the democrat Doug Jones to become the next US senator from Alabama, the US Senate is in play for the 2018 election cycle.
