I usually just lurk on this list, but when you included a clip from
Glenn Beck as a source I couldn't help myself. Net Neutrality is not
marxist, or socialist, or communist, "progressive" or whatever Glenn
Beck's favorite phrase of the month is. That guy is seriously grasping
at straws for his strawman arguments (see what I did there :P). "ZOMG!
the government is out to control everything in the world!"

This [1] defines what will happen without net neutrality perfectly,
and if it takes some regulation to prevent that then I am all for it.

I think everyone on this list knows what net neutrality stands for,
and I thought we'd know better than to use Glenn Beck as a source for
a technical issue. /facepalm
