sign Senator Harkin's censure resolution petition

Dear Senator Harkin:

We, the undersigned, support your principled stand with Senators Russ Feingold and Barbara Boxer in favor of holding President Bush accountable, and we urge you to bring the Resolution of Censure to the floor of the Senate for a vote. The President has brazenly, arrogantly and unapologetically broken the law - the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which prohibits warrantless wiretaps of American citizens. Despite getting caught red-handed, he refuses to stop.

Government must protect Americans' security, and that's why the FISA law allows intelligence services to listen to terrorists' conversations legally - by going to the secret espionage and terrorism court to get a warrant AFTER listening.

We are a nation of laws, not of men. No American is above the law. That most certainly includes the President. If Congress fails to hold him to account through censure, then he will believe that he can continue breaking laws with impunity. This is profoundly dangerous to our democracy.

We admire your courage in standing up to President Bush and saying enough! Now, we urge you to take the next step. We - ordinary Americans deeply concerned for the country we love - ask you to work with your colleagues to support and pass the Resolution of Censure in the Senate.

Hi Blue. Just a heads up. A person who calls himself Hell Pig has been posting at all my friendlies and commenters as I. That is ones that allow comments from "any one".
He justs picks "other" and puts the victims name in on top and their url on the bottom. I know you only have registered users so no prob here, but you know me and how I write so if you see some comment from "me" out of the ordinary then you can check to see. The full story is my top post right now.

I like the roote project and as soon as I get my printer up(again) I'll cut a bunch of letters.
Peace
