I find it intolerable that the FTC is considering "any and all efforts to censor, limit, or restrain free speech -- on conservative or Christian talk radio, on the internet or anywhere else.” It seems that George Orwell's predictions are coming true faster and faster. How can the FTC even CONSIDER banning free speech? The United States is the last bastion of free speech in the world, and now you are considering limiting what people may say in expressing their feelings on any topic they choose? I may not agree with with some things conservatives have to say, but I wholeheartedly support their right to state their opinions without fear of censorship. The "pigs" of ANIMAL FARM are rapidly moving into the farm house.
