What's happening: this week on Thursday September 30, the United States House of Representatives will vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment (formerly the Federal Marriage Amendment). It's critical that we get as many calls into congressional offices now in order to demonstrate STRONG opposition to any effort to change the constitution.
Call the HRC Action Line at 1-866-698-1010. You will be prompted to enter your ZIP code.
Keep these talking points in front of you when you make the call. Tell your Representative:
You oppose the Marriage Protection Amendment, and you urge him/her to oppose this legislation - and ANY amendment to the Constitution on marriage; This amendment would write discrimination into the Constitution - constitutional amendments have historically been about protecting and expanding rights, not about discrimination Ask how your Representative will vote on the MPA Then please tell us if they said how the Representative will vote. Just drop us a line at email@example.com to let us know. This is important - it will tell us how to focus our efforts during these last three critical days.
The HRC Action Line will only be active from now until Thursday - so please call 1-866-698-1010 today!
I still don't understand why people support Bush even though this is clear evidence that he's trying to undermine the constitution and our justice system. Without judicial review, the republicans could actually follow the rat's plan and rid the world of the "infidels" through some unimaginable way. I guess people won't miss their freedom until it's actually taken away from them.

For goodness's sake, please vote Democrat this November!
what gets me the most is that we're willing to give up our freedom for security against the people we're always being told are attacking what again? our freedom.
does that make sense to anyone?
if they're attacking freedom, protect the freedoms we have: judicial review being the major thing protecting them. you don't win a war on terror by terrorizing the terrorists because the whole country is in a panic over it. they want to scare us: that's the definition of terrorism.
if we want to win, rebuild the world trade center EXACTLY like it was only safer, and go on with the american way of life, ignoring them.
