WE THE PEOPLE of the United States in order to preserve our Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish and remind our government of this Constitution for the United States of America.

Cross posted at The Pony Express and stop by Never In Our Names opening Saturday!

WE THE PEOPLE have for 230 YEARS defended this Constitution, with our Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Our Fathers and Grandfathers and Ancestors FOUGHT AND BLED AND DIED to defend it...against all enemies, Foreign and Domestic.

WE THE PEOPLE have had our power abridged, our voice taken from us, and our representation compromised for profit.

Iraq, Torture, Corruption.....SHUT IT DOWN!

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   

Obstruct.

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?

                                                                               FIGHT...............................AND WIN!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
