Solving the Assault on Freedom of Speech

If you can’t control, squash-um.

Why are the people who believe in our founding documents, salute the American flag, and go to church now under assault for communicating our ideas? Big Tech tells us what we post is “Fact Checked” and “Not Accurate” even if we are the witnesses to the event.

What can be done with the control of “Freedom of Speech” vested a few tech oligarchs? These same censors can discriminate against Republicans and conservatives with impunity, branding us with derogatory names that are not true. I do believe it is time to go on the offense.

The Governor of Florida gives us one example of going on offense. He has teamed up with his state legislature to set some regulations for Big Tech. The following is a synopsis of what is covered more fully at Breitbart News

Governor DeSantis announced the following (and I can not see why we in Kentucky can not have these regulations):

  • Mandatory Opt-out of content filters.
  • A private right of action for Floridian citizens against tech companies that violate this condition.
  • Fines of $100,000 per day levied on tech companies that suspend candidates for elected office in Florida from their platforms.
  • Daily fines for any tech company “. . .content and user-related algorithms to suppress or prioritize the access of any content related to a political candidate or cause on the ballot.”
  • Greater transparency requirements
  • Disclosure requirements . . . . tech companies that favor one candidate over another.
  • Power for the Florida attorney general to bring cases against tech companies that violate these conditions under the state’s Unfair and Deceptive Practices Act.

Governor DeSantis is showing the way to regain our First Amendment rights. It seems reasonable that we can contact our Republican legislators to adopt the above seven regulations or come up with our own.
