The US has forgotten what is was. Who it was. The US was founded as a secular state with great individual rights.

The "Under god" comments and the "In god we trust" were added in the cold war as a part of rabid McCarthyism - the Soviets were very anti-religion, and in response the US associated Atheism with communism, so they have basically turned themselves into a Christian Theocracy. Idiots.

sadly the issues addressed here don't even come close to the real threat we face, these acts will basically give the government the ability to censor anything they please. If sopa goes through, right off the bat there will be thousands of websites taken off the internet, and i guarantee some of these websites will not have broken any of the rules laid out by sopa.
in other words they will be able to destroy random websites at whim, if anyone pipes up and says something about it, they can claim that they violated copyright terms in some way or form.

now i go onto another point, some people might say "oh, well china has internet censorship and you never hear them complaining so whats the big deal?" uhhhhh they don't complain because there voice to complain has been taken away.

STOP SOPA

the internet is one of the last truly free places, let's keep it that way shall we?

please thumbs this up so that i can get more people to realize the horrible problem we face with sopa

We support SOPA until they change anything in our community? Sell Server based licenses or points/currency not software.

Riot, I just want to say, thank you so much for bringing attention to this toxic bit of legislation. Really, well done, I'm proud of all of you, as a company and as individuals.

Ahem... CONGRESS SHALL KNOW THE WRATH OF THE SUMMONERS.

Well I feel better. flooded Facebook with videos and links. Wrote several e-mails to my reps as well as getting six of my fellow IRL summoner buddies to write as well. TMW I will be attending the university handing out pamphlets I wrote up to help spread awareness. This is typical American government....all you outsiders have 0 influence 0 say you're meaningless....BUT....but......the laws we pass will affect you too....and we can sue you extradite you imprison you etc etc. I urge you all to help out, do some research. I would also like to thank all of you who are not american but are trying to do your part as well. I'm sure others appreciate it as well and in a sense I think letters from other countries carry a bit more weight in terms of opening congresses eyes. As one summoner put it we are a community and it's times like these we can show people what we really are capable of.

You know how much that sounded like a conspiracy theory? lol

Last thing, if others can freely voice their opinions and their of support of gay marriage, I should, in theory, be able to voice mine.

Lets go back to the original point, shall we?
