Rand Paul Explains Why He's Throwing In The Towel
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is throwing in the towel on big tech giants, like YouTube. The Senator is just fed up with the censorship and announced in a press release Monday, what platform he plans to move to:
“Today I begin my exodus from Big Tech, starting with the worst censor of all, YouTube,” said Dr. Paul. “As a libertarian leaning Senator, I think private companies have the right to ban me if they want to, however, those of us who believe that truth comes from disputation and that the marketplace of ideas is a prerequisite for innovation should shun the close-minded censors and take our ideas elsewhere, which is exactly what I’m doing.”
Over the last year, YouTube has continued to wage its dangerous, anti-progress of science war against free speech, choosing to act in lockstep with government and ban videos posted by Dr. Paul that dared to contradict the government’s position. These videos included conversations with journalists where he discussed the efficacy of masks, particularly cloth masks, and a video explaining the science behind why cloth masks don’t work.

Conservatives, moderates, and libertarians are all bailing on liberal-run companies, like YouTube because of the company's inability to respect free speech along with other abuses—Like banning anyone they disagree with.
Now that YouTube has added an additional clause that allows them to remove any content they deem as 'conspiracy', there really is no point in using their services for research.
YouTube ranked dead last for consumer safety in BI Intelligence’s 2017 Digital Trust survey. Only 4% of survey respondents feel that YouTube is the safest platform to participate in or post on, making it by far the least chosen option. Even Twitter, with its sluggish user growth, abusive trolling accounts, and generally lukewarm outlook from analysts, is viewed as safer.
