Last month the fear monger who still illegally occupies the White House, tried to bluff his way into getting the House to grant immunity to the Telecom industry for illegally spying on American citizens.

Enough of you patriots out there said enough is enough and told your congressmen to stand up and protect the 4th Amendment to the Constitution.  You told them that we want protection from the government spying and data mining of innocent Americans.

Now in the words of a great American Elmer Fudd “that wascally wabbit is up to no good again” and he will pressure the Senate to fix the bill so that his pals at Verizon won’t be liable for their irresponsible and illegal act of just handing over our privacy to the administration of this imperial president just because he wants it.

All you free Americans need to put the pressure on the Senate not to cave in the King George W and join with Senators Patrick Leahy, and Congressman John Conyers.  Demand that your Senators support the strong and balanced FISA legislation that the House Passed in March 2008.

My Democratic Senator Bill Nelson’s staff told me when the Senate last voted on the FISA bill, that he did not support immunity for the telecoms, but then voted for it anyway.  These guys must be watched closely and held accountable when they try to dismantle the Constitution.

I urge everyone that values freedom to contact your Senators and Demand they support the House’s FISA bill.

With all the smoke and mirrors flashing across your TV, the mud slinging democrats and the free ride McCain gets from the press.  This lame duck administration will try to get all of their agenda passed into law before they slither out of the White House and crawl back under the rocks they came from.

Here is a letter that I will be sending to my Senators.  Please feel free to use it or alter it to your liking but send it by email, fax, and call your Senators and tell them how you feel.

You can find your Senator here.

Dear Senator,/I urge you to support the fair FISA bill passed by the House of Representatives in March.

Any new FISA legislation must be strong and balanced, protecting America's national security while defending civil liberties -- without granting retroactive immunity to phone companies.  Retroactive immunity would abet the Bush-Cheney Administration's efforts to avoid accountability for its actions.

The House's FISA bill strikes the appropriate balance.  That's why I strongly support the FISA bill passed by the House in March, and why I'm urging you as my Senator to support the House's legislation as well..

Sincerely,
Your name

Your address

Peace and Liberty through intelligence, strength, and integrity.
