The Internet has transformed the American and global economies. Today, commerce and communications move instantly from all points. A large reason this technology has become so integral to our lifestyle and grown so quickly is due to the government's reluctance to regulate the internet. This hands-off approach has allowed the technology to achieve things no one could have expected. The Internet, however, is not without its bad actors. I am a strong advocate of privacy protections and cyber security. Whether it's tracing online child predators or identity thieves, I believe law enforcement should have the tools they need to track down those who prey on the innocent.
