This is outrageous that you would call a meeting to consider this proposition. If one element of society has a valid message then it can stand by itself. When a government creates a tax to be spent on spreading ideas which are not sound in any fashion, that government is on the edge of collapse. Adolf Hitler had a similar plan. The former USSR had a similar plan. Where are they today? Hugo Chaves has a similar plan. When you create the tax, you will need a new army to enforce and collect the tax. Socialism (liberal idealogy) reads great and sounds great but it has failed time and again. If it is the only information on the air, nobody will still be listening to it because it is not based on truth.
