"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

Keep Fighting

We are not barbarians - we are civilized!

The simple fact that we are debating whether or not this Country will condone torture, throw out habeas rights, wiretap without warrants – proves that we have stepped over the line into tyranny.

This is the fight of our lives.

First, call your Senators and demand that they stand up and speak out against the torture and pardon legislation! Call now 1-888-355-3588.

UPDATE - the toll-free number to Congress has just been disconnected [I used it about an hour ago]. The switchboard operator says that they only purchase the toll-free numbers for a short period of time and that the Capitol operators do not even know the number. It is very important that we demand that it be re-established. People have the Constitutional right to petition their government. The right to do this should not be contingent on the ability to afford a call. When you are on the line to your Senators and Rep, ask that the toll-free number be reinstated.

The Capitol switchboard is 1-202-225-3121.

Do not pardon illegal spying.

    Please keep fighting this awful disenfranchisement legislation. HR 4844.

    OMG - the problem is electronic voting machines, not people voting who are not supposed to be.

    This is horrific to listen to these bastards speak.

    In addition - this bill has not yet addressed vote by mail states/counties or people like the Amish who cannot have their pictures taken for religious purposes.

    They have not held hearings and do not have proof that there is a need for this legislation.

    If they had done any research they would know that the problem with vote fraud it is in Diebold switching Dem votes to Puke.

    This is just playing into the fear of brown people and prejudice and other crap.

    I am so disgusted.

    You should hear this debate.

    Anjha, You say keep fighting? I'm getting more depressed.
    I know these fuckers have tape recordings of everything these congress people say. All it takes is a simple phone call: Vote this way or we tell your wife your secret. Or anything else they have on them.
    I think God Of War uses the approriate term...FUCKSTAINS!!

    The people are ignorant, asleep, busy trying to keep their families together, pay their mortgage, recover from illnesses...the people are absent and as a result our democracy dies.

    A successful Representative Democracy can only exist with the full consent of the people.

    Where are the fucking people?!

    I am so disgusted and depressed about our prospects as a Nation that I really am having a difficult time being the encourager that I am supposed to be.

    Let's see if I can pull any momentum out of my hat.

    Anjha, Your great! I am having trouble keeping focused as well.

    You said it so well: The people are ignorant, asleep, busy trying to keep their families together, pay their mortgage, recover from illnesses...
    That explains my brother in CA exactly!
