    Just keeping you informed not trying to debate... either way if you like it or not VOTE this next election in November is probably going to be the most important in YOUR life time and will effect the next 40 years. If you're not old enough to vote, please explain this issue to your parents.
    If you are American this will effect you more than you think. You might think... Oh I only go to certain sites.
    Well what the government is trying to do is allow internet providers become more like cable and phone companies, where they can limit internet usage or put up "packages" to certain sites where you can go to. So say for example you go on Steam Facebook Instagram and NetFlix a lot. Well the the cable company can put those sites as "Premium Sites" when you subscribe to your internet provider; and charge you extra for them as cable companies charge extra for premium channels like HBO or Showtime. They can also put a cap on your internet speed. You may be paying extra for that certain speed, but once you reach a certain number of GBs downloaded, they will slow down your internet.
    I've known may of you for at least 4 or more years. Hopefully your are going to be old enough to vote this election.
    Just be careful or tell your parents when pushing that red button in November.
