The following is my open letter to senators with regards to the new "hate crime" amendment to the defense budget. Please help preserve your freedom of speech before it becomes too late and gag orders are given to all citizens and news writers, as was recently done in Europe. Imagine a country in which people like Mr. Farah at www.worldnetdaily.com are sent to jail for trying to spread the truth. Go to www.senate.gov In the top right corner is a menu to get your senator's contact info. Read and use the below letter either whole or as a template for getting your own message across. It takes less than a minute to fight for your freedom because others have already done the hard part of dying for it. If we do not band together and speak out against abuse of the Constitution now, how many Americans will have to fight for ground already bought by blood? God Bless America!
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
The preceding text is the first amendment to the Constitution. I implore you forward it to your fellow representatives of the citizens of these United States in case their copy has become worn from use and thus rendered unreadable, or been misplaced or otherwise discarded, lest they attempt to abridge their constituents' unalienable right to freedom of speech. Please do so while there is still time.
The following are hereby brought to your attention for your immediate action:
Whereas Senators Kennedy and Smith have submitted a "Hate Crimes" amendment to the defense budget, they have in doing so attempted to abridge the free speech of citizens of the United States of America.
Whereas any representative lawmaker attempting to abrogate the heretofore inalienable rights of the citizens of the United States of America is by definition committing an act of treason against the governing documents of our country.
Whereas any amendments added without regards or relation to proposed legislation serve no purpose other than to provide a misrepresentation of the will and abuse of trust of the citizens of the United States of America.
Whereas any such proposed amendment put forth not only defies the Constitution, but also threatens to corrupt defense legislation key to the protection of the United States of America.
I hereby call for the immediate striking of said aforementioned "Hate Crimes" amendment and the immediate impeachment of all elected officials supporting any limits to the Bill of Rights as outlined by the founders of this nation.
I hereby call for clear, concise legislation without hidden deceitful riders. Let every bill stand on its own merit.
Countless veterans have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution, and while terms of service may expire, that sacred oath does not. We may not agree with everything a person says in the exercise of their right to freedom of speech, but make no mistake, as Americans we will defend to the death their right to say it. The ghosts of our brothers and sisters in arms laid to rest in Arlington and cemeteries around the globe attest to our willingness to defend freedom.
Several states have already illegally violated the Constitutional rights of their citizens, to constrain those officers of the law to become the captors of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by the hands of those over them.
Details of these offenses against the Constitution, the people, and reason itself can be found at:
Included among the ranks of the illegally punished is a pastor and veteran of the United States Marine Corps with twenty years of service.
We have written to you, our elected representatives, time and again to uphold the Constitution, to secure our freedoms, our rights, and our borders, yet time and again our freedom and security are attacked from within by that very body of representatives who chose to defend us from tyranny some several generations ago.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.
The Declaration of Independence had strong, heartfelt language in it, and for good reason.
We ask that you uphold the Constitution and protect us from the tyranny such abusive machinations from within our very government will lead to.
To your duty senator!
