REAL ID: A Major Victory is Near

"Repeal the Real ID Act" is DownsizeDC.org's oldest active campaign.

That's because REAL ID - which is a de facto national ID card - lays the foundation for a future police state.

That's why so many people have fought against it so hard for so long. And thanks to that resistence REAL ID still hasn't been implimented, six years after it became law! A big part of this is because of your pressure.

And now there's more good news . . .

There's a silver lining in the monstrous, 1,926-page appropriations bill (H.R. 3082). This bill rescinds funding for a REAL ID "hub." The House already passed the bill, and the Senate will consider it as soon as TODAY.

This hub would have created a centralized ID verification system, where states share driver information with each other. Without this hub, REAL ID suffers a fatal blow.

That's why we're asking you to tell Congress to support this cut in REAL ID's budget, and to repeal REAL ID altogether
.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

I'm glad that the House is rescinding funding for a REAL ID hub in the H.R. 3082 budget bill. My Senators should ensure that this rescission remains in the bill.

But you should do more. Repeal REAL ID entirely.

* REAL ID assumes I am a foreign terrorist or illegal immigrant, and that I must "prove" my innocence
* I am punished with higher fees, more red tape, and longer DMV lines
* And my private information will be centralized, making me more susceptible to identity theft and other dangers

Furthermore . . .

* The REAL ID law still exists as an unconstitutional, unfunded mandate on the cash-strapped states
* 21 states will still be out of compliance when it is scheduled to take effect in May, 2011 http://www.seattlepi.com/local/431425_realid08.html?source=mypi
* By de-funding the verification hub, there's no longer any point in forcing the states to implement REAL ID

This is America, land of the free. It's not the land of "Your papers, please." Help restore liberty to America and repeal REAL ID.

Read the Bills Act and Food Safety: What Happens When Your Senators Don't Read the Bill

Read the Bills Act and Food Safety: What Happens When Your Senators Don't Read the Bill
Posted by John Markley

A funny thing happened on the way to the "food safety" bill's passage. As the letter below says, Senators violated a provision of the Constitution when they passed their version (S.510), and House leaders will not accept this violation.

Meanwhile, all 42 Senate Republicans have vowed to filibuster ALL legislation unless bills to fund the government and to prevent the New Years Day tax increase are considered first.

We are pleased with this development, because it makes final passage of the dangerous "food safety" bill much more difficult.

But it should also be pointed out that if DownsizeDC.org's Read the Bills Act (RTBA) had been in force, the Senate would not have made this mistake. And so we're asking you to tell Congress to introduce and pass the Read the Bills Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The "food safety" bill that passed the Senate, S.510, is further proof that we need the Read the Bills Act (RTBA). S.510 includes new taxes, whereas the Constitution requires all tax bills to originate in the House.

This means the 73 Senators who voted for it either . . .

* Knowingly violated their oath of office to support the Constitution, or . . .
* They didn't read the bill!

The Read the Bills Act (RTBA) would have prevented this . . .

* It requires all bills that come to a vote to be read before a quorum in each chamber
* It also requires that they be posted online, in their final form, seven days before a final vote

If the RTBA was in force, surely many people would have caught this mistake BEFORE the bill's passage.

If you take your oath of office seriously, you wouldn't knowingly pass a bill that clearly violates the Constitution. The RTBA would prevent that from happening. I therefore expect you to introduce this bill soon.

END LETTER

You may send your letter using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

We also invite you to add your blog or website to the Read the Bills Act Coalition. By joining, you help spread the word about the RTBA, and in return we will list your site on our blog and announce it in a Downsizer-Dispatch reaching over 30,800 readers. You may learn more and join here.

This month we welcome Live Free Radio to the coalition. B)

Finally, in November the House passed 22 bills totaling 426 pages, and the Senate passed 13 bills totaling 598 pages. You can see summaries of these bills on our blog.

Obama Nominates Rabid Anti-gunner to Head the ATF

Obama Nominates Rabid Anti-gunner to Head the ATF
Gun Owners of America
http://gunowners.org

Monday, November 29, 2010

It was not a good sign that Barack Obama kept his nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives a secret until after the midterm election --- and then quickly announced that anti-gun zealot Andrew F. Traver would be named to fill the slot.

After being blasted before November 2's election by the liberal New York Times for failing to beef up the ATF by appointing a director --- for fear of the wrath of the "gun lobby" --- Obama gets right past the election and, presto chango, a nominee appears. How 'bout that?

And not just any nominee.

As special agent in charge of Chicago's ATF field division, Traver had taken the lead in calling for a ban on semiautomatic firearms.

And Chicago, of course, has been the epicenter of anti-gun government activism. It is not surprising that Traver has also been active in the virulently anti-gun International Association of Chiefs of Police, which has worked to empower Handgun Control-type activists and has commissioned panels to:

* support one-gun-a-month and lock-up-your-safety laws, as well as "ballistic fingerprinting" files on all firearms;

* espouse an "effective" ban on .50-caliber firearms, and a redefinition of "armor-piercing" ammunition that could effectively ban handgun use;

* mandate gun-destruction policies for law enforcement and enhanced funding to go after guns;

* prohibit all private gun sales and make "prohibited persons" out of a much wider variety of persons committing simple misdemeanors;

* back a repeal of the Tiahrt amendment; and,

* allow federal health and safety oversight of the firearms industry (through agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration).

It is disconcerting that ANY organization espousing these views would be taken seriously. That an activist in such an organization would be put in charge of the ATF is truly troubling.

ACTION: Contact your Senators. Urge them to support a filibuster of the Traver nomination to head the ATF. You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Senator:

It was not a good sign that Barack Obama kept his nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives a secret until after the election -- and then quickly announced that anti-gun zealot Andrew F. Traver would be named to fill the slot.

Please support a filibuster of the Traver nomination to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Sincerely,

Have Americans Had Enough?

National ID card,,The Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, Eminent Domain, Warentless wiretapping, Warentless GPS tracking, National Helathcare, Out of control spending, out of control politician, bailouts, TSA groping and looking at nude passengers, the elderly, handicapped, and your children and the list goes on and on.

All of these things started moving forward immediately after 9/11 under the command of Republican George Walker Bush and has continued under Democrat Barack Hussein Obama.

Some of these things took place out of the supposed necessity of security over safety and others for the supposed betterment of the people.

Now nearly a decade after most of this has taken place, the people have said enough. The elections showed that the people do not like Obama's definition of change.

There are groups planning on refusing TSA orders to go through the backscatter x ray machines and refuse to allow them to touch their junk.

They understand that the TSA is threatening to send them to jail or assess an $11,000.00 fine, but they plan on standing up for their rights come Wednesday November 23rd once of the busiest times of the year for airports.

The TSA response was that if you don't want you or your children to go through x-rays or be groped by one of our fine employees (TSA WORKER ARRESTED FOR CHILD PORN), then you can find another way to get to grandmas house for Thanksgiving or any other holiday.

Read this article about TSA, "The TSA: America's Real Child Pornography/Molestation Machine."

In the mean time, I choose not to fly, I can get where I need to go via other non invasive means or not go at all then to endure such humiliation and degradation. Where would the airlines be if people stopped showing up?

But while you are boycotting the TSA, be sure to tell your newly elected member of congress that you have had enough and that you want a common sense approach done for security. Their are much more effective ways to find potential terrorists than to groping old women in wheel chairs, men wearing loose clothes or children.

11/04/10

Elections are Over but the Battle to Victory is Ongoing

I was as elated to see so many smug Democrats and a few Republicans loose their seats as the Americans who went out and voted Tuesday.

However, being the realist that I am, we still have many of the same incumbents in office who helped get our nation to where it is today.

Obamacare and the National health care database legislation should be on the forefront of legislation that is repealed.

We don't need it changed, we need it removed from the books period.

The American people also need their rights returned. So while the newly elected Republicans are talking so highly of the Constitution and patriotic Americans, they need to take a deep look at Legislation that has been passed since 2001.

One such republican will be the New Speaker of the House.

You get the point. He spoke big about Freedoms, Liberty, the Constitution and being Patriotic when in reality he has not done much to protect or preserve them.

Legislation, such as the Patriot Act, Real ID, military Commissions Act and the like. Americans are tired of elected representatives ignoring their oath of office.

It is up to We the People to keep a close eye on those officials and make certain that they do the job they were elected to do or we throw them out as well.

No more excuses, you have control of the House and if Obama does not bend to the Will of the people, he too will be looking for a job in 2012 just like Republican Herbert Hoover did in 1932.

We know the Democrats will not work to preserve our Liberties, RINO's are no different. If the Republicans cannot get back to their conservative roots, then we may just need to replace both parties with individuals who are willing to step up and do the job they were elected to do.

STAND UP, SPEAK UP, LIVE FREE

America's Future?

Vote for the Constitution on Election Day

The candidates are starting to get it. I have heard so many political ads that speak about the Constitution. My hope and prayer is that this is not just campaign rhetoric and these people will actually stick to their word.

RINO's and Liberal Democrats could care less about the Constitution, they have proved that over the last 20 years. But things need to change and Americans want it done right.

Americans do not want health care mandates, they want access to health care without being forced to a system that is more expensive and provides less service and they certainly do not want a panel deciding on what care is best for them based on all their medical history that is in a national database. They want to make that decision with their doctors and family members.

Americans are tired of the back and forth between Republicans and Democrats who look nearly identical in all they do when it comes to overspending and government control of our liberties.

If you haven't considered members of the Constitution Party, you may want to. They have a platform that nearly anyone who calls themselves a member of the Tea Party would be proud.

Get out there and vote but stop putting up with the same incumbents on both sides who refuse to stand up for you, their constituents, the one they are supposed to represent but refuse to do so.

Remember voting for the lessor of two evils is still voting for evil.

Keep an eye on those that do get elected. Make sure that they are doing their jobs of representation and if not, VOTE THEM OUT or RUN Against them.

Americans will speak loud and clear to the RINOS and Obama Democrats tomorrow. Lets hope the message gets through.

STAND UP, SPEAK UP, LIVE FREE!

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

GOA representatives are traveling coast-to-coast to discuss the differences between candidates running for office.

GOA's Political Victory Fund has already issued scores of alerts, endorsements and contributions in important elections that will take place next week. You can go to goapvf.org to see the highlights of these races.

GOA representatives are appearing at press conferences or rallies in several states. While the following are just the tip of the iceberg, they represent the type of work that GOA is doing:

* Arizona, Dist. 1 -- Paul Gosar (A rated) vs. Ann Kirkpatrick (C rated)

* Colorado, Dist. 3 -- Scott Tipton (A rated) vs. John Salazar (D rated)

* Florida, Dist. 2 -- Steve Southerland (A- rated) vs. Allen Boyd (D rated)

* Georgia, Dist. 2 -- Mike Keown (A- rated) vs. Sanford Bishop (C- rated)

* Michigan, Dist. 7 -- Tim Walberg (A rated) vs. Mark Schauer (D rated)

* Minnesota, Dist. 8 -- Chip Cravaack (A rated) vs. Jim Oberstar (D rated)

* Missouri, Dist. 4 -- Vicky Hartzler (A rated) vs. Ike Skelton (C rated)

* New Mexico, Dist. 1 -- Jon Barela (A rated) vs. Martin Heinrich (D rated)
New Mexico, Dist. 2 -- Steve Pearce (A rated) vs. Harry Teague (C rated)
New Mexico, Dist. 3 -- Tom Mullins (A rated) vs. Ben Ray Lujan (F rated)

* Pennsylvania, Dist. 11 -- Lou Barletta (A rated) vs. Paul Kanjorski (D rated)
Pennsylvania, Dist. 12 -- Tim Burns (A rated) vs. Mark Critz (NR)

* Virginia, Dist. 9 -- Morgan Griffith (A rated) vs. Rick Boucher (C rated)

* Washington, Dist. 2 -- John Koster (A rated) vs. Rick Larsen (F rated)

Many of the above races involve Blue Dog Democrats who are trying to portray themselves as solid defenders of the Second Amendment, but their current grades seem to reveal they are nothing more than Pelosi puppets.

You can go to this link to see a bigger list of Blue Dogs who have been working to prop up Pelosi.

The GOA representatives who will be traveling this week include Vice-Chairman Tim Macy, Executive Director Larry Pratt, Director of Federal Affairs John Velleco, and Director of Communications Erich Pratt.

Please Condemn this Hypocrisy in Congress

Downsize DC President Jim Babka will be speaking in Williamsport, PA this Saturday. Details below the signature.

Have you heard about the "robo-signers" scandal in the mortgage industry? Mortgage company employees have signed foreclosure-related affidavits without knowing if they were true.

Professor Donald J. Boudreaux draws a parallel to Congress not reading the bills they pass.

The politicians are screaming and waving their hands about the "robo-signers" in the mortgage industry, but, hypocrites that they are, they refuse to do anything about their own "robo-legislating."

Please condemn this hypocrisy. Please inform Congress of this parallel and tell them to introduce and pass the Read the Bills Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

Professor Donald J. Boudreaux compares the alleged "robo-signers" of mortgage-foreclosure documents to . . . YOU! http://tinyurl.com/2dx3mhx

Robo-signers are "posers who sign and give life to legal documents without even reading the contents of these documents."

Whereas, Congress votes "to give life to legislation without even reading the contents of the legislation."

According to DownsizeDC.org, the House has passed 346 bills and the Senate 183 bills so far in 2010. The average bill length is 44 pages. http://www.downsizedc.org/blog/the-congressional-tally-so-far-2010

Did you read any of them? Or are you a "robo-legislator?"

We the people are are always impacted - and often hurt - by your legislation. Do us the decency of at least knowing what you're voting for. Take the bills you're considering as seriously as if you were signing a foreclosure document on someone's house.

END LETTER

You can send your letter using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

Also, see the bills that Congress passed in September on our blog.

And we invite you to add your blog or website to the Read the Bills Act Coalition. You will spread the word about RTBA, and in return your site will be listed on our main page and be mentioned in a Dispatch like this. Learn more and join here.

Jim Babka
President
DownsizeDC.org

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: DownsizeDC.org President Jim Babka will be speaking at the Responsible Representation Rally at the Brandon Park Band Shell in Williamsport, PA THIS SATURDAY, October 23. The Rally begins at 12 noon and ends at 2pm. The Rally is sponsored by the Susquehanna Valley Regional Tea Party, which has adopted the Downsize DC Agenda for reforming Congress. We hope to see you there!

'Pledge to America' - Despicable GOP Ruse

By Devvy
September 23, 2010

The much anticipated 'Pledge to America' was released today amid what can only be called high political theater pandering to desperate Americans.

What despicable "leaders" like House Majority Leader John Boehner (who voted to kill millions of jobs) handed the GOP faithful during their big big photo op is nothing more than clever word smithing. A marketing pitch for the mid-term pretend elections (vote fraud decides who gets elected). That so called pledge is nothing more than a repeat of the same deception pulled by Newt Gingrich and the Contract With America. I'm an old war dog with a long memory. For those of you who might not remember, let's take a walk back into history. Read full article Here ...

URGENT: DISCLOSE Act Vote Likely Today

The Senate will likely vote on the DISCLOSE Act again TODAY. That's why we're sending this message earlier than normal. It's urgent that you act quickly.

Incumbents banded together in 2002 to make it effectively a crime, punishable by jail, for a non-profit group like DownsizeDC.org to broadcast issue ads during the final days of an election campaign.

The Supreme Court fixed this problem earlier this year, getting something right for a change. In the Citizens United case they restored the right of non-profit corporations like DownsizeDC.org, Inc., to broadcast issue ads during elections.

The name of the case fits. Non-wealthy CITIZENS are UNITED in organizations: They band together using their First Amendment rights of association and press to publish and broadcast their opinions. Bad laws have forced we citizens into a legal cul de sac, where WE NEED CORPORATIONS LIKE CITIZENS UNITED AND DOWNSIZE DC TO HELP US ACHIEVE OUR GOAL OF BEING HEARD. But . . .

In this year when most Americans want to fire Congress, the incumbent politicians are making a last ditch effort to protect incumbency -- by chilling dissent. Here's what's at stake . . .

Because DownsizeDC.org is un-willing to expose its list of supporters (your name) to the Federal Election Commission we would be PROHIBITED from running ads exposing a candidate's record.

We explain, in greater detail, how this law would affect the groups you love most at the web page opposing the anti-First Amendment DISCLOSE Act.

To create artificial demand for this terrible bill, numerous politicians, including the President, have lied about the Citizens United decision. It's time to call them on it -- literally.

First, send them a letter RIGHT NOW. Here's what I wrote using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System:

There has been a massive disinformation campaign designed to push through this anti-First Amendment bill.

* Some Representatives and Senators have said that the Citizens United ruling overturned 100 years of law, when it fact it merely overturned a 20-year old decision. http://tinyurl.com/2f9c4qq

* Many of these same incumbent politicians claimed that now major corporations, like BP, would be able to buy our elections (one of your members even said bribery was now legal!).

* Which is richly ironic, because . . .

a) The DISCLOSE Act only restricts regular-sized non-profits while exempting behemoths like the NRA and AARP, and . . . http://tinyurl.com/2vxe23w
b) Major commercial corporations have always held tremendous sway over our government, and any pretense that they don't insults my intelligence. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulatory_capture

Face it: The DISCLOSE Act is about NOTHING MORE THAN CHILLING DISSENT.

And I'm in on the secret.

If you vote for this bill then it means you want to disenfranchise the little guy for the benfit of yourself and big special interests.

There's a better alternative. As James Madison said Federalist No.10, the best way to counter the influence of tremendous wealth, and the concentrated benefits that big corporations seek, is to foster the freedom for many voices to join the political fray. That's why the First Amendment reads, "Congress shall make no law," that even "abridges" (remotely infringes) on my rights of association and expression -- NO LAW.

I emphatically urge you to work and vote for a filibuster, and failing that, to work as hard as you can to defeat the DISCLOSE Act.

END LETTER

Second, because the vote is occurring today, PLEASE ALSO CALL YOUR SENATORS ON THE PHONE. Their numbers are provided on the same page where you send your letter to Congress, if you're logged-in to your account.

Remember to tell them you're a constituent of theirs, and to be brief, polite, but forceful.

Please pass this message on to others, removing the information below my signature so no one accidentally unsubscribes you. Also, if you have a blog, please repost this information.

Jim Babka
President
DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
