Stop Telecom Immunity–Important Action Alert from our Friends at DownsizeDC
Quote of the DayQuote of the Day:
"We’ve witnessed a fire sale of American liberties at bargain basement
prices, in return for the false promise of more security… The America being
designed right now won’t resemble the America we’ve been defending… The danger
isn’t that Big Brother may storm the castle gates. The danger is that Americans
don’t realize that he is already inside the castle walls."
— Wayne LaPierre
Subject: Two days left to stop warrantless spying
We’ve campaigned against warrantless spying since Summer, 2006. During that
time, with various campaigns, we’ve sent 122,526 messages to Congress on this
one issue. It’s had an impact — most notably when the House allowed the so-called
"Protect America Act" to sunset out of existence.
We have today and tomorrow to secure what may be a final victory.
DC Downsizers have sent roughly 8,000 more messages to Congress in the last
five days. If everyone reading this message would write Congress, 60,400 more
messages could be sent. Today would be a good day to do so.
If you oppose warrantless spying and immunity for the telecom companies that
engaged in illegal surveillance of American citizens, please send Congress a
message telling them that.
For those who have already sent messages on this campaign but want to do more
to keep up the pressure during these final two days, we suggest the following:
Send Congress a message on behalf of Ron Paul’s "American Freedom Agenda
Remember, this bill would roll back all of the Constitutional violations erected
in the name of the so-called war on terror. Use your personal comments to add
that you are especially opposed to warrantless spying and immunity for the telecoms.
Finally, we still need phone calls to the Blue Dog Democrats in the House.
Tell them to NOT sign the discharge petition that would bring the bad Senate
FISA bill to an immediate vote in the House. If your rep is on this list, please
call them . . .
