Please do not make changes to any FCC regulations that impair, impede, or any way takes away the freedom of speech whether conservative or liberal. Our nation must not succumb to the agenda going around that everyone must be able to refute or provide an opposing view point to an particular broadcast. Independent programmers should not be FORCED into providing time for opposing viewpoints, this should be left entirely up to the programmer or host of any particular broadcast program. The government should NEVER control our freedom to speak for or against any issue or topic. If I'm opposed to or if I'm for a particular lifestyle, belief, or government entity or personage, so long as I'm not presenting a view that divulges national secrets or threatens bodily harm to anyone, or uses words that fall into the category of cursing or vulgar language, then the progam should NOT be regulated by the FCC or the Government. It is not the role of the Government to control every aspect of our lives. The role of the Government to govern - period! Elected and appointed officials and bureaucrats do not know what's best for US! WE the PEOPLE still believe in the freedoms that our forefathers fought and died to sustain.
