7. It has finally broken into public acknowledgement that Bush has
been using our taxpayer money illegally to spread his lies and
propaganda and to enrich his family and corporate backers. This proves
what we have been saying- that mainstream media prints and broadcasts
propaganda, not news, and certainly not the truth.
armstrong_williams.shtml He did it to foist his erroneously-named
"No Child Left Behind" bill which should have been named "No Bush Left
Behind" which is defrauding the public education system out of
much-needed funds www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=04/03/12/1534244
and he is doing it again to hijack Social Security. Read about it in
the following articles:
Ask Congress and the FCC to investigate and stop these abuses:
is the type of scum-ball propagandist they hire
8. Social Security can be considered one of the major hallmarks of
progressivism : It turned what was formerly almost sure poverty for
millions of aging Americans into a secure retirement. But George W.
Bush's plan would remove that security, throw seniors' retirement to
the stock market, and bring in a windfall for Wall Street. The good
news is that not everyone in Congress—including some Republicans—is on
board with the plan . That's why it's so important to tell your elected
officials now that you don't want to see Social Security privatized.

11. George W. Bush is going to be taking one pledge on January 20.
The rest of us can take another one: to make sure that we actively

government might do to chip away at them. The ACLU's Freedom Pledge is
a simple statement that you're committed to values of freedom and will
work with like-minded individuals to protect them. The goal is 100,000
signatures by Inauguration Day and ultimately 400,000. ACT NOW

Kentucky Senate thumbs its nose at the Kentucky Constitution and its
court system! Dana Seum Stephenson did not meet the constitutional
qualifications to run for the office of senator in her state; however,
today she was sworn in as the newest member of the Kentucky State
Senate. A judge had already ruled that Stephenson did not meet the
state's residency requirements—she has not lived in Kentucky for the
required six years. Yet Senate Republicans quickly swore her in and
hung her engraved brass nameplate as a show of their power.
Democrats protested the decision to seat Stephenson. Democratic Senate
floor leader Ed Worley said "I refuse to participate in what I believe
to be the greatest single act of pure, raw, ugly politics as I have
ever seen take place in our Capitol."
Even non-Democrat members of the senate were disgusted by the
decision—Republican Sen. Bob Leeper threatened to resign over the
debacle. Virginia Woodward has challenged the validity of this senate
vote and asked the Franklin County Circuit Court to stop Stephenson
from undertaking any senatorial duties. The court will hold a hearing
Sen. Bob Leeper said he will register as an independent later this
week, becoming the lone independent in the General Assembly and the
first since 1984. Later, in a telephone interview, he acknowledged
there could be political retribution from Republicans, perhaps in terms
of lost committee assignments. The 2005 legislative session resumes on
Feb. 1 and is scheduled to end March 22. Support Senator Leeper for
refusing to follow in the corrupt and unconstitutional actions in
Kentucky! Send letters to the Kentucky reps and to Kentucky and
national media about the illegal actions of the Republican party. You
can thank State Senator Bob Leeper for standing strong for the
constitution and for ethical conduct at his
email firstname.lastname@example.org You can give the rightful winner your
support. Visit her website for details and support

guilty. Also continue to check the Democratic mindset for positive

16. This is CRITICAL. Continue to send information about the
shortcomings of electronic voting machines and the evidence of Election
2004 fraud to as many of our Congressmen as possible. We must continue
to expand our base of in-the-know Congressmen so they know that this
election was stolen and that many criminal activities were used to
install Bush into power. They perhaps do not know so we must make it
easy for them to know. We must also point them at the news suppressed
by the media. Do this at least for your own 2 Senators and
Representative and also for your State legislatures. This will send the
message that WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY and WE WON'T GET OVER IT!

I trust you agree that electors and candidates should be chosen by
voters and not by partisan secretaries of state or by corporate
software companies and their technicians.
Join President Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Richard Lugar,
Sen Biden, and Speaker of the House Hastert in calling for a fair, free
election without intimidation. The people in a democracy have the right
to be heard and their votes accurately counted at the ballot box.
Bush: "There's just a lot of allegations of vote fraud that place their
elections, the validity of their elections, in doubt... The position of
our government is that the will of the people must be known and
heard....These elections ought to be open and fair....The only good
deal is one that's verifiable…Any election in any country must reflect
the will of the people."
White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan told reporters the Bush
administration is calling on [Ukraine] to conduct a review of the
election and not to certify the results until investigations of fraud
Powell: "We cannot accept this result as legitimate because it does not
meet international standards
and because there has not been an investigation of the numerous and
credible reports of fraud and abuse. ... We call for a full review of
the conduct of the election and the tallying of election results….
...It is time for Ukrainian leaders to decide whether they are on the
side of democracy or not,
whether they respect the will of the people or not."
Lugar called for a new vote because of "wholesale fraud and
abuse...This is really hardball, and it
was systematic… It is now apparent that a concerted and forceful
program of election day fraud and
abuse was enacted with either the leadership or cooperation of
So ultimately a second vote but only if you have reform."
Biden: "Ukraine's leaders should immediately invalidate the election
results, invite an independent
commission to investigate the numerous reports of fraud and protect all
Hastert: “In order for democracy to flourish, citizens must be able to
exercise their votes freely,
fairly, and without intimidation. Hopefully, Ukraine’s election in
three weeks won’t experience the
rampant voting problems, reports of fraud, and allegations of campaign
corruption that marred last
Ukrainians have the right to be heard and their votes accurately
counted at the ballot box.”
If ours is a democracy too, then the following statement should be
backed by these same people:
Americans have the right to be heard and their votes accurately counted
at the ballot box.
I demand that my vote count and that the votes of my fellow citizens
count IN THE 2004 ELECTION.
Please add your name, your support, your signature to our cause - that
electoral votes obtained through unlawful means or through fraudulent
or criminal deeds be challenged and declared invalid.
I request that you add your name to Rep. Conyers' request for a GAO
investigation and that you join with the House Democrats to challenge
and contest the electoral votes for President and Vice President of the
United States and for all other fraudulently- obtained positions.
And please share all of this information with your closest associates.
Sincerely from your constituent,
17. Here's a way to send a message about "morality" to both major
political parties: I think they are screening the message however,
because they did not accept my rant about fascism. So they want to keep
it "sanitized" I guess. Still, the more the better.
18. More petitions against assaults:
19. Evangelical leader James C. Dobson is threatening six Democratic
senators if they block conservative appointees to the U.S. Supreme
Court! Tell this SOB preacher where to go and give support to our 6
Democratic Senators he threatened: Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mark Dayton
of Minnesota, Robert Byrd of West Virginia, Kent Conrad of North
Dakota, Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico and Bill Nelson of Florida. We
should start digging up the dirt on Dobson. Send it to the media.

idea, just passing it on…Write the url www.boycott-republicans.com on
your $1, $5 and $10 dollar bills. To get people to look at the truth,
my favorite is www.truthout.org
21. Greg Palast www.gregpalast.com has been hired by Harper's!!!
And Harper's appears to not be allergic to the truth. Look at their
October issue: www.harpers.org/Newsstand200410.html Keep this in mind
when giving gifts to TV watchers/koolaid drinkers. If you subscribe,
make it a point to let them know that you are buying because they hired
