They get tax breaks to improve the infrastructure. All they did was let it rot, and buy up their competitors.

U.S. taxpayer gave $400 Billion dollars to _____________

Stop right there. The problem is not with who gov gave the money away to, the problem is that the government took it and gave it away. I am a taxpayer and I didn't "give" anybody any money. The government TOOK my money. They took my money and gave it to Muslims in Afghanistan, or Obama's cronies, or the big banks, or illegal immigrants or Planned Parentood, or PBS, or the pink pussy hat club. That is the problem.

The cable companies kept the money and laughed. I would too if the gov gave me $400 Billion of other people's money.

Hang on, a tax break isn't the government giving them anything, it's them not taking as much as they otherwise would have.

Then instead of saying, "I want them to build my particular vision of a regulated internet." Stop giving them money. They owe you nothing for being retarded.

And how much worse is that for use who don't want a regulated internet. You inappropriately gave money to a corporation, and now I have to live with your restrictions. That's really bright moral justification you have there.

Instead of saying I gave them money I have a right to complain. We should say you lost your right to complain when your proved you were retarded by giving them money.

This really should be a bigger deal. This has been a willful theft from the American Tax payer that is well documented.

Bring on the meshnet. There's a few interesting projects like Altheanet which ensure that the people providing infrastructure get paid for doing so.
