Re: How about looking at GOP platform

(Please avoid overly long quotes, thanks! -Mods)
That is the sum total in the GOP platform about the internet & telecom. All the dire predictions by commentators are what THEY READ in to these generalized statements. IOW, attacks based on little substance of what was written in the platform

So you're saying we should only pay attention to the political sales pitch but ignore decades of history for both parties? How convenient.

No I am saying don't make up meanings in a document that isn't in the document. Which is exactly what a lot of bloggers are doing.

There's nothing in the document but a bunch of fluff and bullshit, like all political documents from both parties. I'll rely on actual history to tell me who I should believe, thanks -- and it shouldn't be politicians with a generation of lies under their belt.

That's fine. But also don't believe bloggers & commentators with their own history of distorting reality to further their own agendas - like a lot of these so-called consumer protection groups that are just shills for more gov't control of everything..

with their own history of distorting reality

But you're pretty clearly ok with politicians doing this, based on your incredible enthusiastic support for the GOP candidate. The same candidate who won't disclose the specifics behind his campaign because he knows people won't like it. Your post above takes a GOP document and acts as if its a gospel beyond critical thinking entirely.

It's fascinating that everybody in this country screams and cries about distortion, or bias when something doesn't fit their (usually very narrow) world view, but is utterly incapable of seeing that their own lense out onto the world creates distortion of its own.

Stop buying into partisan nonsense. It might help keep you from over simplifying consumer advocate positions as "more gov't control of everything." Most of them are trying to represent the public -- a novel notion indeed.
