Despite a spirited effort to convince members of Congress to reject the Bush Administration’s program to strip us of our Constitutional rights the people of the United States have been betrayed. Does that mean it is time to give up?
I set up this site almost four weeks ago in anticipation of today’s actions. I was under no illusions this bill could be stopped. It is time to create the structures needed to have this bill repealed at the earliest date. An action this heinous perpetrated on all Americans by a select few with little or no attention by the Mainstream Media shall not stand.
Mourn, if you will, our loss; but do it quickly for there is much to be done.
We need to start a broad educational campaign to teach Americans about what they have just had wrested from them so we can get it back. We need to press candidates about their commitment to restore the Constitution by repealing this yet unsigned law. We need to find candidates willing to stand up and oppose it and get them elected. We then need to press them to repeal this Unconstitutional law.
Teach-ins, sit-ins, films, books, articles, and dinner table discussions were all used to change people’s minds on serious issues such as the Civil Right’s Movement and the Vietnam War. Americans have been put to sleep in recent decades and this fight will not be easy. It will not be short.
Time to get started. We have much to do. Our future awaits us.
