IAP Background:

For far too long, Big Tech companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter have gotten away with profiting from human-sex trafficking, revenge-porn, the opioid epidemic and drug addiction, terrorism, and other forms of human misery, along with engaging in egregious business practices like snooping, spying, political bias against conservatives, employee abuses, and anticompetitive conduct. 

With the coronavirus lockdowns of mom-and-pop small businesses across America, trillion-dollar Big Tech monopolies are only getting bigger and more powerful. Enough is enough. It’s time to re-boot Big Tech, upgrade and reformat the sweetheart laws that protect them (like the very outdated Section 230 from 1996), and enforce the antitrust, consumer- and employee-protection, and similar laws already on the books. As conservative, we do not believe in amnesty, whether it’s immigration amnesty or antitrust amnesty. And we need to recognize that our online personal data is our personal property — and protect our property rights.
