Phone, Fax and e-mail YOUR Senators...and as many others as you can!!!
Cross posted at The Pony Express and stop by Never In Our Names opening Saturday!
WE THE PEOPLE have had our power abridged, our voice taken from us, and our representation compromised for profit.
Between now and the weekend, the target date for congressional recess, the Bush maladministration is going to try to ram several measures through congress........WHILE THEY STILL HOLD THE MAJORITY......... Among the most egregious being legislation to retroactively legalize torture. Or as the Torturer in Chief calls it 'Alternative Interrogation Procedures.'
But there is one thing even worse. The Bush Administration wants to have the power under law, by destroying Habeas Corpus, to sieze and hold, indefinitely, with no notice to friend family or the press, no legal council, NO TRIAL, and no redress, you or your family, yes YOU......................... for SUSPECTED acts....................THAT YOU HAVE YET TO COMMIT. Anytime they want...merely by ACCUSING YOU of ASSOCIATING with Terrorists. Do they even have a definition of 'terrorist?'
That is the worse case scenario for sure, but what else have we come to expect from these Republican Traitors? These men who send our sons of to die, for their own greed and power? Are you willing to trust their good intentions that have proved hollow again and again......Where will they stop, if left UNCHECKED?
And who is left to check them?
The Congress? The majority in Congress is plainly and willingly complicit.
That leaves two checks left...and those two forces need to join together.
The Democratic Minority in Congress....
....and....WE THE PEOPLE
There is absolutely NO reason or advantage to Democrats allowing a single piece of legislation to pass between now and October 6th, between now and when Democrats have taken back Congress. AFTER THIS SESSION, the Republican Congress cannot hurt us again.....when Congress next reconvenes IT WILL BE WITH A DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY
We may not win....But how....how in the WORLD...can we not fight our hardest, do our best, how can we NOT raise our Voices to gether as one to say NO MORE! Here , Now.
* I SAY FIGHT!!!
Focus all your rage and despair into the fight! FLOOD the Senate AND House with E-mails, Calls and faxes
*If NOT NOW, when? If NOT HERE...........WHERE?
*PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO SEND A MESSAGE TO SENATORS SNOWE AND COLLINS they are a strategic target, and could be very important!!!
Elise's Senate List GET TO FIGHTIN'!!!!!
