I found it inspiring to be a part of an action plan yesterday to help build support for a censure resolution against President Bush. We need to send a message to the rest of the world that our country is one of laws and we do not believe that any man is above the law.
Lighting a fire under complacent, cowering Democrats in Washington is not going to be easy and won't take just one day of phoning and emailing.
Here is today's simple action plan. We should write letters to every single Democrat and the lone Independent in the Senate encouraging them to stand with Senator Feingold.
More below the fold...
Your letter can be a very short statement encouraging them to stand up for the Constitution and the American people, or it can be a bit more lengthy. Get to your point quickly and be polite. It always helps to thank the Senator for their service to our country.
Follow this link for a list of mailing addresses for our Senators.
If you missed the phone session yesterday, please call your own Senators and ask them what their position is on the censure and let them know you support it. Call your Senator even if he or she is a registered Republican. They need to know that there is support for this as well. The above link includes a list of phone numbers. You may also email your Senator, however emails tend to carry less weight.
1. This is about upholding the rule of law. The President of the United States is not above the law.
2. A warrant isn't required to wiretap a known terrorist.
3. A warrant isn't required for 72 hours to wiretap an American citizen and the FISA court has rarely turned down a warrant request.
4. The NSA wiretap program is not being attacked but the President's abuse of the program is.
Any others? Add them in the comments.
Let's get busy.
