Urgent Action Needed!
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer Dispatch . . . Please share with concerned friends . . . Subject: Silencing citizens The House may vote at any minute to regulate grassroots citizens' organizations like DownsizeDC.org. We defeated these "citizen silencing" regulations in the Senate, but the forces of darkness are still hoping to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in the House. These proposed regulations are supposed to be a response to the Abramoff lobbying scandal, but this is only a cover story to make the public think that the causes of the Abramoff scandal are being addressed. The truth is very different. The plan is to regulate grassroots organizations that mobilize citizens to communicate with their representatives, while leaving the big special interest lobbying firms (like Jack Abramoff) largely exempt. This will allow "the powers that be" to silence the public while winning applause from that very same public for fixing a problem. It's a fraud from top to bottom. If you want more details you can find them here. Please act urgently to tell the House to follow the Senate's lead by removing ALL provisions that would regulate grassroots organizations like DownsizeDC.org. You can send your message HERE. Please also consider making a contribution to further our work. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. Jim Babka President DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
