With all the talk lately about "woulda, shoulda, coulda", it's time to again remind our members of Congress that they have ALSO failed in the oversight of our runaway dictator under the guise of president.

Yet again this week, in signing the new Homeland Security spending bill, Bush felt obliged to attach a signing statement with what has now become a stock disclaimer reserving the right to interpret it "in a manner consistent with the president's Constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch." THERE IS NO SUCH AUTHORITY!!!

The administration's own legal counsel now admits that these signing statements are INTENDED as an illegal line item veto, a stealth and profoundly unconstitutional seizure of power, an utterly blatant disregard of the authority of Congress to make law. And yet the president is not still confronted by the Congress he so belittles.

To confront the president. THAT is the first thing that must happen. And that is why it is so important that we get as much exposure for the new Lie/Die TV spots of the Peace Team, calling the Bush administration out on their Iraq lies. First we must confront. And only then will the rest of our friends and neighbors see for themselves just how far Bush has gone to abuse the power intended by the founders.

By getting as many of the Lie/Die spots on the air as possible, and now 12 members of the Peace Team have already produced their own versions, we can get the word out that there ARE candidates with courage, who WILL stand up to the Bush administration. Only by standing up now and not backing down can we win the votes of those who also are troubled by the Bush lies, but who need to see our strength before trusting us with the necessary corrective power.

This alert is brought to you by the activism of Stacey Tallitsch, running for Congress from the 1st district of Louisiana. Stacey has shared his production of the new Lie/Die spot with other candidates, directly calling the Bush administration on their Iraq lies.

SUPPORT THE LIE/DIE TV SPOTS: http://www.peaceteam.net/donations.php

Please go to donations page now. You can see the spots playing right on the page above. Give whatever you can in these last critical 4 weeks of this Congressional election campaign. The future of our democracy is on the line. This is our last chance to take back our country from the dark side of dictatorial ambition. We must give it everything we've got. Only then do we have a chance for a brighter tomorrow.
