When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do? -- John Maynard Keynes

When you hear "government is the problem," here is an example

Politicians are bought off, lobbyists control the legislative agenda, the public interest is forgotten --

Who wants competition? Big cable tries outlawing municipal broadband in Kansas | Ars Technica: "Legislation introduced in the Kansas state legislature by a lobby for cable companies would make it almost impossible for cities and towns to offer broadband services to residents and would perhaps even outlaw public-private partnerships like the one that brought Google Fiber to Kansas City...."

Nothing like holding back progress (fast, competitively-priced internet) for the people, so greedy cable companies can have government-sponsored monopolies!
