US Republicans Back 'Internet Freedom'

A new Republican party platform adopted at last week's GOP national convention in Florida proposed to protect the Internet freedom of users, protecting their personal rights, as well.

"The Internet has unleashed innovation, enabled growth, and inspired freedom more rapidly and extensively than any other technological advance in human history," the platform reads. "Its independence is its power. The Internet offers a communications system uniquely free from government intervention."

Republicans intend also to "ensure that personal data receives full constitutional protection from government overreach and that individuals retain the right to control the use of their data by third parties," the platform says.

However, in their platform, the regulators proclaim the restriction of internet gambling; tighter control over pornography/obscenity and protection of the intellectual property online.

"Millions of Americans suffer from problem or pathological gambling that can destroy families. We support the prohibition of gambling over the Internet and call for reversal of the Justice Department's decision distorting the formerly accepted meaning of the Wire Act that could open the door to Internet betting."
