On December 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission put our democracy and our economy at risk. That’s when the FCC voted to deregulate the internet and repeal the 2015 Net Neutrality rules. Net neutrality states that no internet service provider can block your access to any website or service for politically or financially motivated reasons. Fundamentally, everyone deserves access to an open internet. And, with access to internet becoming more and more of a necessity, those rules are more important than ever.

Imagine a child is taken to a doctor by their parents, despite the child pleading they’re fine. The doctor also asserts the child is ill and begins using a practice deemed harmful and ineffective by most doctors and major professional organizations, including the American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and American Psychological Association. The goal of the practice? To ‘convert’ that child from being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer.

I’ve written before on bias in the media, and how polarized our country has become. Readers may recall that I compared the current political unpleasantness to our nation in roughly 1850, when the notion that disagreement also meant disloyalty and likely enemy status. I also wrote on what I called bold hypocrisy, wherein some national leaders, our current President in particular, tell falsehoods at a record pace, denying demonstrably true “facts” (remember when they said there was nomeeting in Trump Tower? Then there wasa meeting, but it was about Russian adoption? And then it was about…oh shut up!) And if you are a Trump supporter, admit it – when you read that last bit, you thought to yourself, “oh yeah? Well, the liberal-mainstream-dishonest media is the one telling the lies.” Right?

If you live in Colorado, or if your business is touched in any way by any aspect of the agricultural industry, the ongoing national discussion about trade agreements and import tariffs should mean a lot to you. Colorado farmers and ranchers understand that there are a lot of things like weather and market price fluctuations that we can’t control. But we can make every effort to create new market opportunities and expand the global partnerships we have worked so hard to develop for our products.
