I strongly urge that freedom of speech is NOT to be limited by taxation and overseeing of talk radio and broadcast programming by the government or any other limiting board. I realize there is some need for regulation to keep the airways clean and appropriate for the general listener but NOT to limit such that freedom of speech is restricted and directed in its content by the authority of a few or of the government. Freedom of all sides to speak their view and to report world events is essential to a free society and I strongly oppose anything short of a free society.
