ID Tokens Proposed by U.S. Government to Access Internet

The U.S. government is in the process of passing new laws while preparing to implement a new system for identifying Internet users.  In essence what this means is, under the appearance of cybersecurity, the government wants a reborn Internet with new infrastructure favoring a more centralized, regulated world wide web. 

Senator Joe Lieberman's proposed new legislation is modeled after China's but is considered by many to be even more stringent in its methods of regulating Internet access. 
"The true nature of the cybersecurity agenda was revealed when Lieberman told CNN’s Candy Crowley that his 197-page Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act (PDF) legislation was part of an effort to mimic China’s control of the Internet.
'Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,' said Lieberman." - Cybersecurity Measures Will Mandate Government ID Tokens to Use the Internet - InfoWars.com
Many are predicting a temporary shut down of the Internet in the future based on a false flag cyber security threat.  Essentially, this would mean the government would manufacture a cyber security threat in order to implement its new infrastructure.

Additionally, FCC has rolled a censorship plan into its Net Neutrality scheme in a stealth attempt to impose Internet regulation.
Under the FCC’s regulatory control consumers would be forced to buy an Internet/TV/Phone connectivity box that the government approves. “Everyone will pay rates for service that the government sets. And everything passing through your Internet, TV, or phone would become subject to the FCC’s consistent regulatory whim,” writes Americans for Tax Reform’s Kelly William Cobb. -Article
Those who own web sites would be required to sign up with the government to be allowed one.  I guess my question is where is the ACLU in all this?  The ACLU was at the San Francisco gay parade last weekend, but thus far is unable to defend Americans freedoms in this most dire situation.   

My prediction is, after these new regulations are imposed, there will be an uprising of angry people.  This regulation of the Internet is going to severely affect the flow of money and ideas.  I predict it will cripple the U.S. economy even more.

No one's going to have free access to the Internet anymore because of these old Senators who have no real future in America, seeking to impose their laws on the nation's future to make their mark.  In one respect, there will no longer be evil cyberstalkers but the cost of getting rid of vermin is far too high.  

My main question is will this drastic attack on the Internet and freedom by the U.S. Government itself, and that is exactly what it is in my opinion, cause the people to rise to make changes?  Only time will tell.
