My apathy for politics has only grown stronger as I’ve grown older. Politicians are bought and almost entirely corrupt assholes with no other interest than themselves. I’ve remained apathetic, though, because their incompetence has never affected me. Until now. PIPA and SOPA are two bills that would ruin the Internet as we know it.
The Internet has remained largely untouched by the government, which is why we see so much growth and innovation in the tech industry. SOPA and PIPA would halter innovation and greatly inhibit people like me trying to create a business on the web.
Join me in protesting our idiot government by signing a petition to stop these bills. Or call your local senator or representative. Visit Wikipedia, Reddit, or Google today to learn more — they’re all running black outs to protest the bills.
