41 Votes can Stop the War

It only takes 41 votes in the U.S. Senate to end the Iraqi occupation.
Yet the Democrats and the establishment media keep telling us that 60 votes are needed.

They are lying.

And the time to set the record straight is now, while the Senate is once again gearing up to "battle" the White House over war funding.

Please visit FilibusterForPeace today and let the Senate know you're aware of their filibuster option for bringing the troops home. By signing the filibuster petition, you're politely informing the Democrat-controlled Congress that, while they may have fooled many voters in 2006, they won't get away with it again. Your signature says to people like John Kerry and Hillary Clinton: Okay, it's time to put up or shut up! Do you have the courage to stop this atrocity or don't you?

Republicans have shown over and over that they will use the filibuster to have their way. It's time for the majority Democrats to use it.

Please join the more than 6,300 patriotic Americans who are publicly calling on the U.S. Senate to filibuster against any further funding of the Iraqi occupation. Sign the filibuster petition today.

If one or both of your Senators claims to be in favor of bringing the troops home from Iraq, please ask them to initiate a filibuster during the upcoming war appropriations debates. You can locate your Senators here.

For background on, read the article by co-founder John V. Walsh that inspired the creation of the website earlier this year.
