RE: NEW STRATEGIES TO IMPEACH AND GAIN BACK OUR CONSTITUTION
MASSIVE JOINT EFFORT
Saturday, June 21, 2008
Dear Eli Pariser, Caroline Frederickson, David Swanson, Credo, True Majority, and Courage Campaign:
This letter is being posted openly to you and the public on Opednews. I am asking readers to please contact you in support of the proposals in this letter, and to post this letter all over the web, email it out, etc.
First of all, let me heartily thank you for all you are doing to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution. We as Americans, and people internationally, surely are affected in a positive way by all your hard and very motivated work. Let me also thank the ACLU for providing what I believe to be the best political education on the web. More about this later.
I have a deep concern to bring to you, deep enough that it requires writing every one of you and asking for your joint efforts.
I am asking for some new strategies from you, because signing petitions is not working. Witness the new telecom immunity “Compromise” bill which, as you know, basically does away with due process of law, grants secret and unilateral powers to Bush, and undermines the power of the Judiciary whose function is to put a “check” on government power. And at the rate we are going, without a new strategy, things are only going to get worse. It may only be a matter of time before due process for civilians is also done away with.
Let me sum it up in a nutshell: Desperate times require desperate measures.
