I know I've posted a diary from Senator Al Franken (D. MN) regarding net neutrality but Franken is aiming to get more signatures by tomorrow in support of protecting net neutrality:
If the fight for net neutrality were a movie, this would be the part where the good guys have just taken a serious hit -- but they’re re-grouping, planning their strategy, and gathering strength for a big comeback.

There might even be a montage. And if there were, it might feature some of the 54,608 people who have signed onto our petition to save net neutrality -- people like you!

Can you join these folks by signing my petition today?

In case you need a reminder: Net neutrality is in trouble because a federal judge stopped rules from going into effect that would have made sure that the Internet stays free and open to us all.

That’s bad news for small businesses, independent artists, and, maybe most of all, consumers, who could soon see higher rates for Internet service and face new obstacles to accessing the content they want.

But the fight isn’t over -- not by a long shot. And our petition to save net neutrality is gathering strength every day.

Can you help us get the petition to 75,000 signers by February 7th by adding your name right now?

These are tough times for net neutrality advocates. But the ending of this story hasn’t yet been written. And now’s our chance to make sure it’s a happy ending.



P.S.: Every name counts when it comes to saving net neutrality. Click here to sign on today and let’s grow this movement!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
