Urgent Action Alert! Call your Senators and tell them to oppose Fascism Enabling Act
Washington Post reporter R. Jeffrey Smith brings us this horrifying story: "White House Proposal Would Expand Authority of Military Courts"
Everyone who's ever taken part in a political activity (or even been a member of a labor union) should be outraged by this. If this thing goes through, you can kiss democracy and the Bill of Rights goodbye. Fascism will be legal in America, and freedom will never be the same.
Everyone should call their Senators and members of Congress immediately, and demand that they oppose this legislation, and that they make their opposition known loudly and publicly.
The direct line to the Capitol Switchboard is: 1-888-355-3588 (if you don't know who they are, give the operator your state and zipcode)
It's also always a good idea to call their home offices. Both our Senators and our members of Congress are either already here in Washington State or on their way. Call and fax their local offices, and send them postal mail there as well (Don't bother sending letters to D.C. - Anthrax scare makes letters take days or even weeks to arrive).
