  •  You have equal limits to political speech (1+ / 0-)

    in regards to government restrictions - that's how the First Amendment works.  There is no requirement for other people to pay taxes or subsidies to fund your purchase of TV time, web services, billboards, flyers, etc.

    Maybe there should be a dedicated Federal cable TV channel where all citizens get equal free access.  

    So over a year people would get random time slots to be fair.  As there are about 310 million people in the country and about 31 million seconds in a year - each person gets 1/10 of a second to cover any number of issues in whatever degree of detail the individual would like.  Maybe this could be expanded to 10 channels, so everyone would get a full second.

    Jon Stewart has much more powerful projection of his speech than I do, as does Kos, Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr. Chairman of the NY Times, as does Brian Roberts (CEO of Comcast - owner of NBC), as does Ralf Nader, as does every elected official or any one of the Kardashians.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
