What single cause could bring groups as diverse as the Common Cause, Christian Coalition of America, American Civil Liberties Union, Gun Owners of America, MoveOn.Org, Feminist Majority, Consumers Union and hundreds of other wildly diverse groups together in one coalition?
You know anything that could bring some of these groups into agreement would have to be a very important issue and it is. That issue is Network Neutrality. Simply put it is the concept that the Internet service providers consumers use to connect to the Internet (e.g. AT&T, Verison, Comcast, TimeWarner, etc.) should not have the ability to control what websites consumers can access or what Internet services they can use.
Right now under the guise of grass roots consumer oriented political action groups the big telecommunications providers are spending tens of millions of dollars lobbying Congress to defeat or eliminate any network neutrality legislation that would prevent Internet service providers from controlling what website/web services consumers can access.
The only way American consumers can defend open access to the Internet is to lobby Congress to implement real Net Neutrality legislation that prohibits Internet service providers from playing favorites or controlling what websites consumers can access and how fast.
