Below is a list of the senators and congressmen who voted to sell us and our American rights down the river as if we had never been born with them. The right to recall federal officials is firmly established by the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution as a power "not prohibited" by the Constitution and therefore "reserved to the states" and "to the people." As proponents of limited government, the Constitution was to be viewed as a straitjacket on the government, outlining limited powers, not a straitjacket on the people, whose rights only ended where they began to infringe on the rights of others.

Reports are coming in that Nintendo has quietly backed out of supporting SOPA ( Stop Online Piracy Act ). Sony has also backed down, and it's allegedly because of further threats against the PSN from online hacking group, Anonymous. According to Geek , Nintendo is no longer supporting the SOPA act. Reasons for dropping out of the committee was not explained nor did the company have any fancy PR spiel to douse about on the issue. Over at GamingBolt they picked up on comments made by infamous hacking group Anonymous about how they'll attack Sony if they continue to support the SOPA act because they don't "forgive" or "forget".
Personally, my political positioning is less about a single litmus test and more about the ideal that personal freedom is of utmost importance. It should only be trumped in the most serious of situations. As a natural extension of this belief, it means that less government is always preferable to more government — especially when it comes to the internet.

Appposed To SOPA
GoDaddy is one of more than a hundred companies catching flak online for supporting the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Many website operators have threatened to move their domains away from GoDaddy, and Y Combinator founder Paul Graham has said SOPA-supporting companies will no longer be invited to the startup incubator's popular Demo Days showcase for investors. A list of nearly 150 supporters released by the United States House of Representatives' judiciary committee contains broadcasting, publishing and trade groups expected to attend, including ABC television and the Country Music Association . But it also includes several initially eyebrow-raising entrants including a number of private law firms, First Amendment Coalition Executive Director Peter Scheer told Mashable . SOPA is a hotly contested bill that would greatly expand the ability of U.S. law enforcement and copyright holders to deter and punish online copyright violations. The bill would enable companies and the U.S.
Update : The Business Software Alliance has ‘ reconsidered’ its backing of SOPA in its current form and now says that it “needs work”. After writing a rather lengthy and somewhat firey post on the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) yesterday, I realized this morning that I didn’t know Microsoft’s position on the matter. As I edit our Microsoft channel, I immediately sent off a query to the company concerning the Act.
By Stephen C. Webster Wednesday, December 21, 2011 13:36 EDT A strange thing happened Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill. As Rep. Stenny Hoyer (D-MD) attempted to call for a vote to extend a payroll tax cut to middle class and working Americans, his Republican colleagues adjourned the House and walked out of the chamber. And if that weren’t odd enough, it got even stranger: As Hoyer railed against them for failing to help working Americans, footage from C-SPAN went silent, then cut away.
SOPA Escape DNS FireFoX
Legal experts are warning that the proposed PROTECT IP and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) legislation, currently working their way through Congress, will damage the world's DNS system, cripple attempts to get better online security and violate free speech rights in the US constitution. In an essay published in the Stanford Law Review professors Mark Lemley, David Levine and David Post warned that the overarching reach of the legislation would cause people to seek alternatives to the existing DNS system, manufacture massive technical problems in the implementation of DNSSEC and trample over rights of free expression by allowing the total suppression of published opinion based on allegations without proof, or even a hearing. “These bills, and the enforcement philosophy that underlies them, represent a dramatic retreat from this country’s tradition of leadership in supporting the free exchange of information and ideas on the internet,” the trio warn.
In response to a bill now before Congress, which opponents say would dramatically erode internet freedom, the free and fair use of copyrighted material and online privacy, hacker groups have begun to publicly threaten to launch attacks on US government workers and websites. The US House Judiciary Committee debated for a second day on Friday the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a bill that would bestow the US Department of Justice and individual copyright holders with unprecedented powers to shut down websites and crack down on users for what they deem to be violations of copyrights. The vote was postponed after day two of the debate after a wayward tweet derailed talks on Thursday. Rep. Steve King (R – Iowa) tweeted that Rep.
Committee Goes 22-12 For China-Style Internet Censorship December 15, 2011 - by Donny Shaw During today’s mark-up of the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” a bill that would establish the first internet censorship system in the U.S., the House Judiciary Committee rejected a key amendment that would have removed provisions from the bill that call for entire sites to be blacklisted from the internet via DNS blocking, the same system used in the Great Firewall of China.
