Our country’s founding and entire system of government prides itself on our ability for citizens to have different views without being suppressed or censored.

“Unelected Big Tech CEOs should not be able to abuse the protections granted to them by Section 230 to block speech and withhold information from the public, just because it doesn't suit their political beliefs. Their censorship has gone beyond simply acting as publishers and has reached the point of active and intentional election interference. They will be held accountable.”

“Big Tech’s censorship efforts have nothing to do with true fact-checking or censoring private information – it has always been about targeting conservatives and censoring the truth to benefit the Democrat Party and their causes.

While they are silencing conservative voices they are also allowing videos of violence and rioting to be posted without any consequences. These companies and their leadership need to be held accountable."
