From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Creating numerous ways to "Tax" communication in The United States in the year 2010, strikes at the heart of US Constitution and Free Speach. How can free speech be Free when it is taxed? Orchestrating a politically motivated bureaucrat using a TAX to punish free speech is a blatant attack to silence First Amendment rights. America don't let your country fall to this totalitarianism! Don't summary dismiss that statement. Is not the FTC becoming a punishment tool of our Government under the control of a single political person or party, having NO limits to its authority and striving to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible? The definition of totalitarianism. Stop the madness! Why continue to pass an illegal plan with a fancy name “Reinvention of Journalism” that is clearly unconsitutional? It does NOT need government defined "reinvention" Have you really lost all sense of the freedom so many have fought and died to defend in America? Do not allow this obvious attempt to put a $ dollar cost on "free speach" and censorship to stand in America!
