This is the issue that will define our era.
I am sure that all of us have noticed that Twitter, Facebook, and Google have all gotten really bad lately.
I mean BAD, it was dicey before, but now it is just plain horrible. Try typing negative things about left-wing politicians, or ‘progressive’ policy into any of these platforms and you will see what I mean.
These platforms have become almost 100% sanitized in the last several weeks.
According to reports Ron DeSantis is going to take the issue head on and stick it to the big tech oligarchy.
In my opinion this issue is far more important than who is President. I believe President Trump was cheated in this election, but even if he was not cheated; we would have gotten four more years.
Four years is nothing. Free speech is forever.

Trending Politics reported:
These companies exert monopoly power over a centrally important forum in the public discourse and the access of information that Floridians rely on,” he added.
He then went on to list 7 major regulations that Florida would use to crack down on Big Tech abuses (via Breitbart News):
1: Mandatory opt-outs from big tech’s content filters, a solution to tech censorship first proposed by Breitbart News in 2018.
2: A private right of action for Floridian citizens against tech companies that violate this condition.
3: Fines of $100,000 per day levied on tech companies that suspend candidates for elected office in Florida from their platforms.
4: Daily fines for any tech company “that uses their content and user-related algorithms to suppress or prioritize the access of any content related to a political candidate or cause on the ballot.”
5: Greater transparency requirements.
6: Disclosure requirements enforced by Florida’s election authorities for tech companies that favor one candidate over another.
7: Power for the Florida attorney general to bring cases against tech companies that violate these conditions under the state’s Unfair and Deceptive Practices Act.
Breitbart had more on the story:
This is the widest and most aggressive range of regulatory and legislative solutions so far proposed by any U.S. state to tackle the problem of tech censorship.
At a press conference earlier today, DeSantis highlighted the importance of the issue.
“What began as a group of upstart companies from the west coast has since transformed into an industry of monopoly communications platforms that monitor, influence, and control the flow of information in our country and among our citizens, and they do this to an extent hitherto unimaginable,” said DeSantis.
“These platforms have changed from neutral platforms that provided Americans with the freedom to speak to enforcers of preferred narratives. Consequently, these platforms have played an increasingly decisive role in elections, and have negatively impacted Americans who dissent from orthodoxies favored by the Big Tech cartel.”
