Dec 28, 2011 Campaign rally in Des Moines
"There's an attack on the Internet right now...They're opening up the doors to know everything you do and to measure everything you do to protect you from yourself. Let me tell you, governments can't protect you from yourself. And they don't need to be taking over the Internet either."
Nov 17, 2011 Signed letter opposing SOPA to Judiciary committee leadership.
The letter states that: "The SOPA as written, however, is overly broad and would cause serious and long term damage to the technology industry, one of the few bright spots in our economy."
