"The slavery of a people is generally founded in ignorance of some kind or another; and there are not wanting such facts as abundantly prove the human mind may be so sunk and debased, through ignorance and its natural effects, as even to adore its enslaver, and kiss its chains. Hence knowledge and learning may well be considered as most essentially requisite to a free and righteous government" -- Rev. Samuel Phillips Payson (1736-1801), Sermon Delivered in Boston, 1778

(Is this not a perfect description of where the failures of today's educational systems have brought us?)

"Every government interference in the economy consists of giving an unearned benefit, extorted by force, to some men at the expense of others."  -  Ayn Rand

COMMENTARY:

Protect and Preserve Your Free Speech Rights

The "Fairness Doctrine" is The Censorship Doctrine

Media Research Center's Free Speech Alliance is a fast-growing coalition of organizations and individuals, who cherish free speech and who have proactively joined to ensure the misnamed "Fairness Doctrine" never returns to silence the conservative voice in America.

First enacted by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) in 1949, the Fairness Doctrine required radio stations give equal time to all sides on political issues. However, the result wasn't equal time, it was zero time - as stations simply avoided topics that would fall under FCC equal time rules.

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan rescinded the Fairness Doctrine and since then, talk radio has flourished. Conservatives dominate it, and liberals can't stand it.  By re-instating the Fairness Doctrine, liberals would effectively silence the conservative leaders of the day including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and others, and would essentially take control of all forms of media.

In recent months, the groundswell for reinstatement is intensifying. In fact, a growing number of liberal leaders in Washington, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, have openly stated their intent to do so.

As Americans, we cannot sit idly by while this gag order on conservative speech is resuscitated.  The time to act is now-so when the time comes, we are mobilized and prepared to defend our Free Speech Rights.

Join the hundreds of thousands of citizens taking action now through MRC's Free Speech Alliance, and our national petition opposing the re-instatement of the Fairness Doctrine.  Media Research Center's Free Speech Alliance goal is to mobilize 500,000 citizens to forever end the threat of the Fairness Doctrine and other attacks on Free Speech.

PLEASE SIGN PETITION AT: www.freespeechalliance.us

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
