We can "choose" to believe that the competition offered is adequate to offer a choice between net-neutrality and pay-by-site access.  I don't think it is.

Maybe we'll "choose" that the government will do the right thing, which, historically, is also on the less-likely side.

The box has been opened.  We will get screwed.  Our only "choice" is in the "how".

I personally would rather not get screwed out of my money, especially since it seems to be so fleeting these days, and I find myself depleted from defending what little I have.
