Letter: Government needs to stay out of the Internet


My Grandfather lost his job because the government wouldn't protect the "little-guy." Yes, just like the guy from Tempe (really? Tempe? never mind). You see, he complained that the Government needs to protect small businesses from evil on-line businesses and just like my grandfather, he might lose his job. Companies that don't change or adapt don't deserve to go out of business! No, they deserve to have the government prevent their bad decisions from hurting them (by taking our tax dollars from us and...)

Businesses like Ace here in town provide a service way beyond a web-site and they get my business. Companies that don't provide anything more than a website can compete on price alone. It is a failure of logic to think any government regulation would enhance business: it would hamper online stores with sufficient costs to make their products as expensive as the worst managed company locally. Who looses? We do as costs go up and no one wins.

My grandpa used to make boilers for locomotives: should the government stopped the development of diesel trains or supported the coal fired-steam trains with programs or tax dollars? I think we all win when the Government stays out of what they don't need to be in. And they should stay out of the Internet.
