Patriotic Progress
By Jim Babka
Today's Downsizer-Dispatch... The latest statistics for both our growth and the current Patriot Act campaign have been posted at our blog. Check it out. Bad provisions of the Patriot Act will sunset on December 31 unless Congress votes to extend them. Word is that the House may vote tomorrow, and the Senate may take this up Monday, but there is a lot of resistance in both houses of Congress. We must encourage this resistance, and we must do it now! If they vote tomorrow it will be too late. So act now! To send your message to Congress opposing the extension of the Patriot Act click here. On the login page the phone numbers for your Rep. and your Senators are listed. Please call them and ask them to oppose the Patriot Act extension. Then tell us you made the calls and what they said to you. We've created a blog posting where you can comment here. Registering to leave a comment will also allow you to easily leave other comments on our blog in the future. Join the Downsize DC discussion, and let us know about actions you're taking to stop the Patriot Act. Grudge Day on Saturday Saturday is the 10th of the month. Time for our monthly one-day campaign against the REAL ID Act, the law that created the framework for a national identification system for the first time in American history. Please be prepared to blast Congress about the REAL ID Act on Saturday. What's new with the Read the Bills Act? We have good news about RTBA on our blog, but you made have noticed that we've been quiet about it lately in these email messages. This is because we're preparing for a big push on RTBA starting in January. A lot of exciting things are in the works, so stay tuned. Meanwhile . . . Please contact Congress to oppose the Patriot Act extension by clicking here. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. Jim Babka President DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
