SOPA and PIPA Bills in congress

Stop the bills in congress to censor the web. I'm sure you all know that for 24 hours wikipedia is blacked out to protest the bills trying to be passed in the US congress ( SOPA and PIPA ). If these bills get passed, it will be as if its the day the music dies because we will have less freedom. All the protest that were possible over the past few years were made possible because we the people have access to knowledge to truth. The truth cannot be covered up or hid. Contact your Representative in congress and tell them you oppose SOPA and PIPA.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia:

From http://www.wikipedia.org

"Call your elected officials.
Tell them you are their constituent, and you oppose SOPA and PIPA.

Why?
SOPA and PIPA put the burden on website owners to police user-contributed material and call for the unnecessary blocking of entire sites. Small sites won't have sufficient resources to defend themselves. Big media companies may seek to cut off funding sources for their foreign competitors, even if copyright isn't being infringed. Foreign sites will be blacklisted, which means they won't show up in major search engines. SOPA and PIPA build a framework for future restrictions and suppression.

In a world in which politicians regulate the Internet based on the influence of big money, Wikipedia — and sites like it — cannot survive.

Congress says it's trying to protect the rights of copyright owners, but the "cure" that SOPA and PIPA represent is worse than the disease. SOPA and PIPA are not the answer: they will fatally damage the free and open Internet."
