Do you feel the U.S. gov't would be justified in shutting down the internet...
.... from its own citizens if there was an internal uprising against our way-of-life, in order to hamper the efforts that were being made to dispose of it?
*Before you answer-
Don't forget that the majority of us are relatively happy with life, as we here in America know it to be.
These people would hypothetically be uprising against your lifestyle.
In other words, do you feel that the government would be justified in claiming that they are shutting down the internet to protect YOU from the uprise against your way-of-life?

Does threat = uprising
And what if I or anyone I know, don't use the subway?
Is it the ny subway? What about when the subway car goes above ground, does that count? What if the state you are actually speaking about, doesn't have a subway? What if they just have potatoes like idaho?
This is all too confusing!!
What do potatoes have to do with the internet being shutoff? And when is it being shut , I still need to catch up on leverage, psych and burn notice!!Joan Plowright <--- This Name is just wrong on so many levels

I fear the government more than I fear the uprising...
Uprising is always against government's wrong doing.
I checked the constitution and didn't find anywhere government's right to infringe of free speech! Wait - just found the 1st amendment...

Never. Our internet is the currently the only way to get honest news. If they shut down the internet we'd be forced to get it from main stream media...Msm is complicit with the elites and money powers that run everything. Its not difficult to see that even now. Its really not informative or educational. We're given what the people that own these conglomerates want us to know. Its basically sensationalized sound bytes. Main stream media would rather distract and entertain than educate or enlighten. I'd rather get my news from the internet than mainstream media. Fox news is a prime example, they have a history of distorting and outright lying and altering the truth.
