Taxing any form of speech is a violation of American rights. It is fundamentally wrong and I would write my congress to defund and reorganize the bureaucracy attempting such heinous acts. This may be the Obama Administration's way of dealing with dissenting oponions. However that method is wrong on several fundamental American principles and levels. Pay to speak in a country that prides itself on freedom of speech? How can any true American think up such an offensive assault on a fundamental American freedom? I wouldn't pay a single penny. And I would vote in a congress bent on dismantling and defunding the corrupt bureaucracies supporting such anti-American ideas. The bureaucracies may think they are all powerful. However they only get their power from the CFR and the money to fund it from the congress and it should only be obvious to any natural US citizens how we Americans value our freedoms and rights. We will rebel by electing congress to rid these threats by eliminating the source CFR, defunding and dismantling the bureaucracy. If yor think that you are too precious of a bureaucracy, I suggest that you look for the AEC as a very small example.
