Dear Sen. Susan Collins and Rep. Jane Harmon:
A picture is worth a thousand words.
I am also linking a 20-page Free Speech Report done by the ACLU at a free speech conference, apparently now necessary in the United States of America. I will follow up with a hard copy of this letter to you and my two local Senators, which will be wrapped in a print-out of the document plus the 20-page report above and gift wrapped in red, white and blue. The free speech report can be seen here: http://www.aclu.org/freespeech/gen/31878prs20070920.html
Another declassified FBI document on the ACLU’s website dated February 26, 2003 is titled “International Terrorism Matters” and investigates the Thomas Merton Center ion account of organizing an anti-Iraq War peace rally. “This document contains neither the recommendations nor the conclusions of the FBI. It is for your use (U.S. Department of Justice) and for any action deemed appropriate”.
I am writing to you regarding the bill (H.R. 1955) which you drafted and introduced to the House, Rep. Harmon and which you Sen. Collins are introducing to the Senate (S. 1959), “To Establish the National Commission on the Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism, and for other purposes.”
The purpose of this open letter to yourselves and the public is to:
A) Address the concerns of terrorism on the rise and make a suggestion
B) Publicly expose the war on terror for what it is: A fake
C) Prove that you are using the term “terrorism” as code language really targeting vocal Americans. Anyone who doubts this assertion will have little room left for doubt after reading this letter and reading a few of the links provided. Those who read all of these links will have zero room left for doubt. And the public will begin to see right through your “war on terrorism” charade.
D) Discuss your proposed law in a fact-based way. I will disprove your claims that this bill does not crack down on civil liberties, especially in conjunction with the Patriot Act.
E) Issue a public call for you both to resign, because you have the boldness to introduce legislation targeting free thought rather than action, as occurs only in Red China-like dictatorships.
F) Request that any readers who agree with these conclusions demand your resignation.
Senator Collins and Representative Harmon, let me qualify that the concerns about homegrown terrorism being on the rise are likely true. But the fact is that those crimes by Americans against the USA, even while they exist, also are extremely rare, as Ron Paul has publicly verified while adding that if he had been in town, he would have voted “no“ to “this misguided and dangerous bill“: http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/link.php?id=47129
If concerns of American terrorism are on the rise, I suggest the following considerations:
A) The fact that we have targeted the Muslim community as “Terrorists” may trigger for their retaliation on American soil. B) The notion of war without end is a threat to international communities and to their family members here in America. C) The clamp-down on civil liberties is so extensive that some misguided people may possibly to resort to back-handed methods of protest which, even if I strongly disagree with them, may also be the only resources those people feel that they are left with. D) As politicians increasingly turn deaf ears to the voice of the People, the frustration felt by the citizens may possibly generate more likelihood of acts of desperation. E) The U.S. Government must take responsibility for its own actions, clean up its own act, and not follow up the concerns about homegrown terrorism by studying thought itself (an unconstitutional premise).
