Now The U.N. Wants To Own - and TAX - The Internet!

Next month, the 12th World Conference on International Telecommunications, or WCIT-12, will be held in Dubai. At the meeting, the 193 member countries of the U.N.’s International Telecommunications Union, or ITU, will consider renegotiating a fairly obscure treaty known as the International Telecommunications Regulations, or ITRs.

The 24-year-old agreement delineates much of the ITU’s rule-making authority over telecommunications. The hope of several countries is that they can expand the ITU’s jurisdiction to the Internet, replacing the current governing system with one that is controlled by a U.N. bureaucracy.

The member nations will also consider an "Internet Tax" designed to collect money from more affluent nations and redistribute it to poorer nations to improve their Internet infrastructure.

The U.N. has no investment of time, money or labor in the Internet, what makes them think that they are entitled to control and tax it? (Except that it is another fine example of the workings of the socialist mind.) Redistribute? The U.N. isn't entitled to benefit from our tax dollars... we are! We don't need any help in digging a deeper hole for our national debt... we have Obama! Redistribute my ass.
