Yeah, the United States pumped a bunch of money into companies who squandered it, didn't properly regulate the large corporations providing the services, and then started wondering what happened when everything turned to shit. Not that the U.K is a great place for broadband, but at least they have more competition, public infrastructure, and better regulations, which helps bring the cost down.

All this is going to do is fuel identification theft and fraud, while simultaneously punishing the poorest Americans. It will be ineffective for criminals and harmful to the average citizen. Why do they always think this shit will be helpful? Especially since it almost never is.
Look at the gun market for a perfect example of this. As the need for ID and background checks grew, gun thefts went up, and a whole artisan market for weapon smithing in the Philippines and South America sprang up around it. Today, we have many thousands of weapons a year coming into the nation that were built with fake serials, fake markings, that have never been used in a crime, coming into the U.S., while thousands of more "burner" guns that have been used in multiple crimes get shipped south into countries like Mexico and Guatemala, and even as far as Africa, and sold at a discount to gangs (often kids) for use in organized crime. It is actually easier for many criminals to get guns today than it was 20 years ago.
All something like this does is creates an incentive for criminals to victimize the average citizen to get access to an anonymous communication platform. And what will happen is that these criminals will import (and even start making) cellphones that rely on homebrew wifi (currently happening in the U.S. and abroad) and cell tower communication grids (this is already happening in Mexico) to run their communication needs--that and good old fashion ingenuity to get access to regular networks--probably by exploiting immigrants and the poor using intimidation, murder, and extortion.

You are very right, that is why you should also send stuff like: I really want to embrace capitalism by studying Living Off The Land. I think this is the best way for me to understand republicanism. Home and Garden is an amazing source for information about politics and Democracy. What do you think about Guns Today? That may help me understand how to buy the best tampons. How about eating wheat to ensure that I am meeting the requirements of a protein diet laid out by Saturday Night Live.

It doesn't matter, the numbers will come out soon, you will see I am right. The first numbers I heard were actually in the hundreds, not thousands, but I'm sure they went up a bit. I have a cousin there who says there were damn near as many anti-Trump people at the rally as there were supporters.

You are aware that the vast majority of college graduates have far greater incomes than those who didn't attend college, right? You seem to have a strange idea of how college turns out for most people (it is a familiar one here on Voat). They do bring more debt to the table, but they also bring far higher incomes to the table as well. And Trump only appeals to the lower working class, not many of the more educated middle-class workers in this nation. But you are right that they are the ones who are likely to feel the sting of trade deals like the TPP, which is why Trump takes a hollow stance against it. As soon as he takes office, he is going to do what he always planned, and that is make him and his friends rich at the expense of the American people. The idea that Trump doesn't appeal to the poorest American's and won't fuck them over in the end is laughable.
