As brokers of the worlds' knowledge, Google holds immense power and threatens our Democracy. They're able to control what you see and ultimately what you think. It's time to strip them of that oppressive power.
Why To Leave Google Search
Google logs your data with every use of Google Search, YouTube, Chrome, Google Maps, and Gmail.
All of your searches are tracked, packaged, and sold to advertisers that follow you throughout the internet. You can observe this when you get ads related to past search results.
Biased Search Results
Google manipulates their search results. They're not showing you the most results and Europe even fined Google $2.7 billion for their practices.
Research from Harvard proved that Google's search rankings were not objective.
Active Partisan Censorship
Google filtered search suggestions to benefit Hilary Clinton's 2016 campaign.
Google suppressed negative news about Joe Biden prior to the 2020 election.
Ahead of the 2020 election, the largest conservative media sites disappeared from search results temporarily, casting doubt on Google's claim they didn't use blacklists to censor conservative media. Later, Google whistleblowers confirmed the blacklists.
Serious Partisan Ties
Google had an incredibly close relationship with the Obama administration.
Throughout the administration, Google reps attended White House meetings more than once week.
Almost 250 people left the Administration to work for Google or vice versa during the administration.
Google continued the partisanship following Obama - Google Executive Eric Schmidt directly worked on Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.
Ninety-two percent of global internet searches are done through Google. Instead of honestly providing information, they deliberately manipulate and often censor in order to push their partisan agenda and silence political discourse.
