Please support the 21st Century Free Speech Act. Introducted by USA Senator Bill Hagerty. Regulate Big Tech like common carriers.

Google does not support freedom of speech. Google censors more web content than communist China does.

Please support the 21st Century Free Speech Act.


By Tom Forrest

I am disappointed with the Republican party for not passing this new law when they controlled the USA Senate and Congress. Why do socialist Democrats think that people cannot decide for themselves what is "misinformation"?

I do not want the Government and/or Google deciding what I should be able to read or watch. Google has a monopoly on Internet search and must be stopped from discriminating against authors and content that Google does not like.
The Google human editors that constantly read my content and decide to unfairly censor me, conservative news websites, and Republican politicians are bias, incompetent, lamebrains that I would not even hire to work for my company as a free intern.

USA States can also enact laws to regulate Big Tech, however Google, etc. are fighting some new state laws in court. Specifically, states could simply impose non-discrimination requirements on social media and search engines. Non-discrimination is one of the oldest obligations of common carriers and requires them to accept all customers. Currently, airplanes and telephones still operate under this requirement. In the era of competitive telephony, local telephone companies had to interconnect with all long-distance companies.
However, a new Federal law would be the best option.

Senator Hagerty stated:
For too long Americans have watched Big Tech trample on the principles of the First Amendment.

Free speech, freedom of thought and belief, free assembly and the open exchange of ideas. As more information is filtered through online platforms, freedom of speech online is being terminated by Google, Bing, Facebook and Twitter.
