* WE SAY NO “Drudge Tax” on news aggregators. * WE SAY NO to your “journalism division” of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! * WE SAY NO to a direct Journalism Bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist” -- NO ONE SHOULD BE forced to fund the liberal media! * WE SAY NO to a 5% tax on consumer electronics * WE SAY NO to possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion “Citizenship Media Fund” * WE SAY NO to the FCC’s moves to impose a “Fairness Doctrine” pose an ominous threat to conservative speech that would empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. * WE SAY NO to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech!
