***Please do not reply to this email--this confirmation simply lets you know that your message was sent.***

Leonard Vasbinder:

Your message has been sent to the following recipients:

* President Barack Obama
* Vice President Joe Biden
* Senator Mary Landrieu
* Senator David Vitter
* Representative Steve Scalise
* Governor Bobby Jindal
* Lt. Governor Scott Angelle
* Secretary of State Jay Dardenne
* Attorney General Buddy Caldwell
* Senator Conrad Appel
* Representative Kirk Talbot

The content of your message is as follows:

Dear [The message(s) you sent had each recipient's name here]:

Thomas Jefferson said: "To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."

And yet, that is exactly what NPR, PBS and CPB do each and every day. The recent termination of Juan Williams proves that NPR is nothing more than a far-left propaganda mill. And the fact that NPR receives taxpayer dollars is, frankly, ludicrous. Simply put, the time has long past to cut off all taxpayer funding to NPR, PBS and CPB.

If NPR wants to fire Juan Williams for violating its vague and loosely defined "editorial standards" ... FINE. But we (the American people) have every right to do the same to NPR for violating the American people's "editorial standards" and sensibilities.

Several Members of Congress have already commented on this issue and have expressed a desire to cut off NPR, PBS and CPB from receiving taxpayer dollars. Admittedly, some conservative members of Congress are indeed "talking the talk." But please know that merely talking the talk is not enough. The American people demand action and we want NPR, PBS and CPB defunded... now.

Please do everything in your power to ensure that happens without delay!


Don't fall for the 1% to 3% BS that NPR is putting out right now. They actually get from 23% to 41% of their funding at the expense of tax payers. Read more here...

BUT... even if you do fall for the 1% to 3% BS, I still DEMAND that you cut that tax payer funding as well. Let them stand on their merits like any other network.
