I know so many of you are proactive in a really big way. Many of you have websites, write songs, are journalists ,etc and are working hard for the cause.
Then again, some posts in which I have called for proactivity of something as dire as due process of law and free speech (S. 1959 the Thought Crimes Bill) show no activity: No writing to journalists, no letters to Congress, etc. That doesn't mean that nobody did anything: It only means that it wasn't done through that link.
But writing about the Thought Crimes Bill, as we all are, will not be enough to topple it.
I have been working night and day, literally, on this bill. I really appreciate everybody's help. I do have the feeling that many people, being understandably angry and discouraged, just spend a lot of time whining.
NOW IS NOT THE TIME THAT WE CAN AFFORD TO WHINE. WE SIMPLY HAVE NO TIME LEFT FOR IT!
Please help me with the following tasks. You don't have to do them all: Just ten minutes a day will do. Choose any of the following you think will work best:
A) Contact the media (Talking points here): http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_kathryn__071227_please_contact_the_m.htm
The summarized talking points:
~People are increasingly turning to alternative media for "Real" news: Mainstream media should wake up and smell the business losses, and "get real" with the news.
~Journalists will lose their jobs if they disobey their censoring higher-ups by doing a report about S. 1959. But then again, they will lose their careers if the bill passes. So they might as well go ahead and do the ethical thing, protecting Americans and the Constitution: Do a report and offer pro-active ideas.
B) Because S. 1959 sends infiltrators to college campuses, please contact your local college student activist group and give them info about S. 1959, asking for their proactivity (calling Senators, rallies, journalism, you name it). College newspapers would be a good way to get word out and get proactivity going.
C) Please write a letter to your local newspaper editor (which is more likely to print information about this bill) and at least give one mainstream newspaper a try.
D) Join me in the call for Sen. Susan Collins and Rep. Jane Harmon, who introduced this bill, to step down from public office.
Anyone with the nerve to destroy free speech and due process of law MUST be told to step down!
E) PLEASE WRITE GRASSROOTS ENTITIES AND DEMAND, DON'T REQUEST, THAT THEY CIRCULATE A PETITION!! THE PETITION MUST INCLUDE NOT ONLY A "NO" PLEDGE FROM SENATORS, BUT ALSO A PLEDGE TO FILIBUSTER THE BILL----VERY IMPORTANT.
