You must be joking!!! What you are proposing is nothing short of an attempt to censor, limit and control free speech. It is also clear that your target is primarily to limit CONSERVATIVE free speech. Do not go forward with this ridiculous action. In addition to proposing something which is, on its face, an attempt to circumvent the rights of American citizens, as set forth in our constitution, it is even more clear that the motivation (no matter how much you protest to the contrary) is plainly and simply and completely POLITICAL. Finally, although the foregoing should be enough to convince any reasonable person that your proposed action should not go forward, the final nail in the coffin of this terrible idea is that you propose to fund this with yet another tax! STOP THIS NONSENSE AND GET ON TO DEALING WITH THE REAL BUSINESS OF OUR COUNTRY.
