I oppose any effort to bring back the so called "fairness doctrine." This includes proposals to tax conservative speech. Free speech has always been an important part of our republic since the days that that the Democratic-Republicans opposed the Federalists. The Federalists were afraid that free speech would destroy the infant nation. But we survived and prospered.
