Why does Senator Claire McCaskill & Fellow Democrats Hate the Constitution?

Senator Clair McCaskill and her fellow Democrat Senators with the exception of Sen Harry Reid who is doing all he can to save his job this year voted to support the Disclose Act. Of course it sounds like a good idea.

"A bill to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to prohibit foreign influence in Federal elections, to prohibit government contractors from making expenditures with respect to such elections, and to establish additional disclosure requirements with respect to spending in such elections, and for other purposes."

However, when you get to the meat of the legislation, you learn that this legislation is nothing more than to shut up grassroot organization from speaking up and holding legislators accountable for their support of socialist legislation like Obamacare , Cap & Trade and bailouts that cost We the People ore than just tax dollars.

Americans will speak up against the likes of Claire McCaskil. Unfortunately for the people of Mo, she will be in office until 2012 and by then she will hope that people will forget how she ignored the majority of her constituents on Obamacare, the bailouts and the disclose act that would help preserve her fellow Democrats jobs.

We the People do not care if you call yourself, Republican, Democrat or Independent, if you are not listening to us, then we will vote you out. We will speak up, we will gather together and we will defeat you at the polls.

Senate Scheduled to Vote on Free Speech Stranglehold Bill

Senate Scheduled to Vote on Free Speech Stranglehold Bill
-- DISCLOSE Act Vote Set For Tuesday

Monday, July 26, 2010

Just as gun owners are engaged in the intense battle over anti-gun Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) introduced a new version of a bill that will gut the First Amendment rights of groups like GOA.

The so-called DISCLOSE Act, which passed the House last month, puts severe and unconstitutional limits on our ability to hold individual congressmen accountable in the weeks leading up to an election.

Chuck Schumer, who would like to do away with the Second Amendment, is now also trampling all over the First Amendment as a way to protect himself and his anti-gun colleagues from voters like you.

You may recall that the DISCLOSE Act passed the House only after a controversial carve-out was added to exempt the NRA from the bill's provisions. Unfortunately, the NRA -- which had originally opposed the bill because it was unconstitutional -- withdrew its opposition after the carve-out was inserted.

The exemption was maintained in the Schumer version of the bill.

Ironically, while the bill is called the DISCLOSE Act, Schumer and Majority Leader Harry Reid are using the rules of the Senate to bypass any committee hearings -- where the merits of the bill could be debated and the American people could see just how the Constitution is being undermined.

The bill will most likely come to the floor on Tuesday afternoon, where it will take 60 votes to "close off debate" on the measure.

So it is imperative that Second Amendment supporters contact their two Senators right away and urge them to oppose the DISCLOSE Act.

Some Senators may complain that this is not a Second Amendment issue. To the contrary, if GOA is hindered in communicating to the public about members of Congress and legislation they may be voting on, that undermining of the First Amendment will certainly have an effect on the Second Amendment.

The type of speech GOA is involved in -- political speech -- is first and foremost what the framers of the Bill of Rights had in mind when they wrote that "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech."

Please urge your Senators to protect ALL of your constitutional liberties.

ACTION: Please contact your Senators and urge them to oppose the new version of the Disclose Act. You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

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

Dear Senator:

I stand with Gun Owners of America in opposing Senator Schumer's new version of so-called DISCLOSE Act.

It is outrageous that the House of Representatives passed this legislation with a deal to exempt certain large organizations from its terms. This smacks of the money-for-votes fiasco which helped grease the skids for passage of ObamaCare and which has already lowered Congress' reputation to unprecedented depths.

I was glad to see that Senator Mitch McConnell blasted this deal, which was especially aimed at carving out special exemptions for the NRA leadership in exchange for their promise to sit on their hands and not oppose the DISCLOSE Act. "If there is one thing Americans loathe about Washington, it's the backroom dealing to win the vote of organizations with power and influence at the expense of everyone else," McConnell said.

"Just as it wasn't the Democrats' money to offer in the health care debate, free speech isn't theirs to ration out to those willing to play ball -- it's a right guaranteed."

Another irony with the whole process surrounding this legislation is that while the bill is called the DISCLOSE Act, Sen. Schumer and Majority Leader Harry Reid are bypassing the committee process -- where the merits of the bill could be debated and the American people could see just how the Constitution is being undermined.

Gun Owners of America represents hundreds of thousands of Second Amendment supporters. Any bill that hampers the right of groups like this to communicate with the public is also an attack on my rights.

Please vote NO on Sen. Schumer's DISCLOSE Act.

Do You Care About Your Liberties?

Some will say that we don't have many liberties left and not doubt they are correct in some ways.

But how many actually care about preserving what we have and restoring what we are rightfully entitled under the US Constitution?

It is shameful in a way that people will complain about the condition of our nation and the loss of our freedoms, but will do absolutely nothing more.

I have heard people say, "you cant defeat them using the political process" and "You cannot defeat them in the courts."

That type of mindset will only lead to frustration and I tend to believe that people who live their lives believing their is nothing we can do are either provocateurs, saboteurs or cowards.

Yes, there are people who call themselves anarchists who enjoy provoking law abiding citizens to breaking the law and then there are those who want to sabotage your efforts because they fear you are making advances. Finally the cowards will sit at home and whine and complain but do not have the courage to stand up and speak up about those things they deem are wrong with this nation.

Face it, it you are truly concerned about the loss of liberty, you will get involved in the political process and if need be the judicial as well.

Run for office, start, class action lawsuits, get behind a candidate that will preserve and restore liberty. We must strive to take our country back one city, one county and one state at a time.

Kagan Hearings Are Over -- Vote Coming! TELL YOUR SENATORS NO WAY

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to send the nomination of Elena Kagan to the full Senate floor on Tuesday.

The 13-6 vote was not a surprise. Democrats outnumber Republicans 12-7 on the committee, and their ranks include the anti-gun extreme wing of their party, such as Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin.

Six Republicans opposed Kagan, with only turncoat Lindsey Graham of South Carolina voting to confirm the anti-gunner.

As this important battle moves to the Senate floor, it is important to keep the heat on all Senators -- especially Democrats coming from rural states who claim to support the Second Amendment.

If a handful of these Senators vote NO on Kagan, her confirmation could be defeated.

While Kagan does not have a record of judicial opinions, her views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. Some things that have come to light since her nomination include:

* While serving in the Clinton administration, Kagan drafted an executive order to ban certain semi-automatic firearms;

* As a law clerk, she advised against the Supreme Court considering Sandidge v. United States in a case that questioned the constitutionality of the D.C. gun ban, writing that she was "not sympathetic" to the gun owner's Second Amendment claims; and

* Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the President pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

During her hearings, Kagan ducked and dodged questions about the Second Amendment, and she refused to declare whether she believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Kagan insisted that the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald are precedent and "settled law," but this in no way precludes her from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- are consistent with the Constitution.

Recall the confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor, the newest Supreme Court Justice. Sotomayor assured the Senate, and the American people, that she accepted the Court's ruling in Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Yet, in the McDonald case, Sotomayor joined the dissent in writing that "I can find nothing in the Second Amendment's text, history, or underlying rationale that could warrant characterizing it as 'fundamental' insofar as it seeks to protect the keeping and bearing of arms for private self-defense purposes."

Now Kagan has made the same promises to the Senate, but the available evidence portrays her as a forceful advocate of restrictive gun laws and driven by political considerations rather than the rule of law.

As GOA attorney William J. Olson, who testified at the hearings, noted: "If [Kagan] were to go on the Court, with what we know about her now, she could be the most anti-gun justice on that Court."

There is NO WAY any Senator who claims to support the Second Amendment could vote to confirm anti-gun radical Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States!

ACTION: Please urge your two Senators to oppose the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

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

I stand with Gun Owners of America in opposing the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Please vote NO on the nominee's confirmation.

Trust us, We will Protect Your Data, We're from the Government

Trust us, We will Protect Your Data, We're from the Government. I've heard that one time too many. I could go on and on about examples of the government who is entrusted with some of our most intimate details have lost confidence since the passage of Real ID

You can see many examples of personal data from medical records, bank, universities and more, lost lap tops, stolen data from workers, data breaches, lost backup tapes and much much more at Beth Givens has dedicated a great deal of time and effort to ensure that your information is kept private and only used for the purposes for which you have provided it to various businesses.

Congress when they passed the Real ID in 2005 knew full well the American People would not be deceived into accepting a national ID card. But they touted the Real ID as a means to protect us from terrorists and to ensure that our drivers licenses' would be secure.

So along with the Real ID Act of 2005, one piece of additional legislation was to be adapted to protect our identifying information. It is known as the Drivers Privacy Protection Act or DPPA. This piece of legislation not only does not protect our private information, but it actually allows the DMV to sell, share or rent any and all of your data to private corporations for whatever they want to do with it.

The Data that can be shared
Complete Address
Date of Birth
Socialist Security Number
Your Photo
Medical Information
Any other information you may have provided such as immigration documents, birth certificates and marriage records.

The 5th Circuit court of Texas just ruled that Companies Can Buy Bulk DMV Records

"Private companies can use this information to prevent insurance fraud, verify a worker's driver's license, notify the owner of a towed or impounded vehicle, and conduct research and surveys, among other permissible uses. Government agencies, law enforcement officers and licensed private investigators are also authorized to use DMV records.

The panel concluded that it's legal for someone to buy DMV records in bulk "for the purpose of making permissible actual use" of those records, "even if that person does not actually use every single item of information therein.

Defendants included research companies, online database operators, grocery chains, insurance companies, employee screening services, technology businesses and consulting companies."

I toured NC and spoke to many groups and churches about the dangers of Real ID and the Drivers Not so Private Privacy Protection Act.

Perhaps, people will listen now. Perhaps, they will urge their legislators to stop this madness, or perhaps instead vote in those who will repeal or re-write this law to include some real protections for Americans, or perhaps Americans will remain silent on the issue and become the easy target of identity thieves.

URGENT: Senate vote on "Financial Reform" this week

The Senate will vote on the Frank-Dodd financial (non)reform bill (H.R. 4173) this week and possibly as soon as today. Although it has the votes to pass, it doesn't yet have the 60 votes needed to break a filuster.

This bill will only strangle our already-ailing economy, and will do nothing to prevent future financial collapses or bailouts. Please tell your Senators to support the filibuster and oppose Frank-Dodd through our Reduce Regulations campaign.

You may borrow or copy from this letter . . .

Reducing regulations would actually be the best reform of the financial system. The fraudulent Dodd-Frank bill will only create powerful new armies of regulators who won't actually reform anything.

As David C. John and James L. Gattuso of the Heritage Foundation point out . . .

* At 2,300 pages, none of you will have read the bill or know what, exactly, is in it
* The bill empowers regulators to seize private property and "wind down" firms they, and they alone, judge to be "failing."
* A Committee to guard against "systemic risk" won't possibly possess all the knowledge to do their job, and will only discourage and stifle innovation
* The Consumer Protection bureau will reduce the number of options and choices of informed, responsible customers
* The new bureau will also issue supposedly "consumer-friendly" regulations that will conflict with the goal of other regulators of protecting the safety and soundness of financial firms
* By abolishing retail debit card fees (a practice that had nothing to do with the crisis), banks will be forced to raise revenue other ways such as eliminating free checking (and some banks have already begun to do this)
* The bill does nothing to reform Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, two firms that played a huge role in causing the financial crises - which makes future bailouts probable

It gets worse . . .

* A provision to audit the Federal Reserve was gutted in the final bill
* Section 342 seems to require quotas for women and minorities for government agencies and contractors, as if current laws and current departmental civil rights enforcers weren't enough

I don't see how this bill provides ANY benefit to me or to the nation. Instead of reforming our financial system, it just empowers politicians and bureaucrats to reward your friends and punish your enenemies.

A REAL reform bill would . . .

* require greater accountability in the market by forcing even large firms to face the threat of bankruptcy
* abolish "government sponsored enterprises" like Fannie and Freddie
* provide a real and thorough audit of the Fed, whose decisions did so much to cause the crisis

Please introduce real reform that would unleash our over-regulated economy. And I DEMAND you oppose Dodd-Frank!


You can send your letter through's Educate the Powerful System.

If you live in one of the following states, it would also be particularly helpful to call your Senator:

Iowa: Chuck Grassley (Republican)
Maine: BOTH Susan Collins (Republican) AND Olympia Snowe (Republican)
Massachusetts: Scott Brown (Republican)
Washington: Maria Cantwell (Democrat)
Wisonsin: Russ Feingold (Democrat)

You will see your Senator's phone number when you are logged into the system.

And we encourge all of you to tell your friends to take action! Forward this to your friends and share it on Facebook:

Thanks for doing your part to Downsize DC!

Dear Grassroots activist:
With no public notice, the North Carolina State House Speaker, Representative Joe Hackney, (D-Chapel Hill) has just now (3:00 PM Wednesday July 7th) announced he will hold a stealth vote to force you into funding political campaigns against your will. The vote will be held later today and another vote will likely come tomorrow.

Take action now by clicking here.

Despite your massive opposition there are some Raleigh lawmakers that are continuing to push a massive expansion of using taxpayer money to fund political campaigns!!

Let's be clear. We must stop this movement now. The other side will not rest. Every time they add one more elected office to the list you are forced to fund, they move on to the next one, with the goal of using your tax dollars to fund anybody who runs for political office, from the dog catcher to the Whitehouse.

Senate Bill 20 and House Bill 120 would permanently expand taxpayer financing of political campaigns to State treasurer and some municipal races. Taxpayers should not be forced to fund campaigns they disagree with.

Recently the members of American for Prosperity helped stop a scheme to raise taxes and spend millions of your dollars to fund political races. But we need your help again.

AFP-NC urges you to TAKE ACTION and contact your lawmakers and ask them to against Senate Bill 20 and House Bill 120 and/or any bill that expands forced taxpayer support of political campaigns.

Social Media 101 for activists

Social Media 101 for activists

Seven ways to change the world with Twitter and Facebook.
By Ambreen Ali

Imagine the reaction if someone stood on a chair at a cocktail party and began shouting opinions and asking for money.

That's precisely what many activist groups do on social networks, Deanna Zandt argues.

The author of "Share This! How You Will Change the World with Social Networking" faults organizations for treating Twitter and Facebook like broadcasting venues instead of places to have a conversation.

"You're sharing and participating and working with each other," she said.

Facebook is full of groups for one cause or another, but few of their followers actually do something. How can activists move people beyond so-called slacktivism?

Zandt offers seven tips on using social media to make a real difference.

1. Share your story. Perhaps the biggest benefit of using social networks is that they allow you to share personal stories with others, Zandt said. Compelling narratives have always been an important way to pull people into a cause. Twitter and Facebook just enhance how that works.

"Any kind of organizing, whether it be door knocking or phone banking, starts with stories," she said. "Stories create empathy, and empathy is a building block of any kind of social change movement regardless of whether someone's politics are left or right."

2. Cultivate relationships. Zandt put her theories to test while writing the book by asking friends and family to donate to the "Feed Deanna" fund. The money went to pay for the author's living expenses while she penned the social media guide.

She sent e-mails to 500 people that yielded $6,000 in cash and a handful of unique offers like $100 a month in pizza from the local restaurant and a free eye exam. What she learned applies to activist groups that often find themselves pinched for funds.

"The biggest takeaway is that fundraising is all about relationships," Zandt said, noting that she knew almost every donor personally. "You need to build your community before you need them. I couldn't have just made 500 friends in a day and then asked them for money."

3. Be personable. Robotic tweets that read like a press release won't get you anywhere. Casual prose and a human touch are the expectations on these social sites.

"You should be using the tone of voice that you would with a coworker you don't know well. Think about having a conversation with someone rather than broadcasting something," Zandt said.

4. Meet people where they are. Not all the people who would be drawn to your cause are on Twitter. Even those that are may not use it in the way you think.

Zandt gave the example of a student-led immigration protest several years ago that used MySpace to build its base. The social networking site is popular with teenagers, so it made sense for organizers to start there.

The protest was planned on a school day, and students were going to walk out of their classrooms in protest. Knowing that the students wouldn't have access to MySpace in school, activists collected their phone numbers ahead of time and texted them.

The concept, called last-mile organizing, means "understanding the community you're trying to reach and figuring out what the appropriate technology is for them," Zandt said. Many people don't use the internet regularly at all, she added, emphasizing the importance of continuing traditional activism.

5. Treat social media like a tool. No technology can take the place of traditional organizing tactics like knocking on a door, holding a protest, or meeting with a lawmaker.

"Those are still tools in the toolbox. This is an additional tool that people can use," Zandt said.

It's important to use the tool when it's best fit. Social media may not be the place to negotiate with a fellow activist group, for example, but it can help bring people together in a crisis.

When books about feminism and gay rights mysteriously disappeared from's search results last year, authors turned to Twitter to share what they were seeing. Pretty soon, the subject "Amazon Fail" was one of the most popular trending topics on the site, and mainstream media sites took notice.

Amazon had to react in a matter of days. Before social media, Zandt said the publisher could have pushed the issue aside or waited weeks before doing something about it.

"Maybe activists would have written to Amazon. But along the line, a number of gatekeepers would have had to approve that this was a valid story to tell," she said.

6. Don't chase the numbers. Not every cause requires a million followers. It's more important to have a dedicated group of activists who are willing to share your information with others and help out than to have tons of followers who don't really care all that much about what you do.

Parents in Florida demonstrated that when they started voicing their frustrations with the public school system through social media sites. They joined together on Facebook, eventually landed a meeting with school officials and had their concerns addressed.

"Eight thousand people may not be a lot for the Red Cross," Zandt said, "but it's a fantastic number for Palm Beach County parents who are putting pressure on a school system."

7. Reward people who help. Activists often struggle with getting their Facebook fans and Twitter followers to actually do something. One way to address that is by giving people easy-to-accomplish tasks and rewarding them publicly for completing them.

The Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit that uses technology to make government more accessible, used social networks to collect data on lawmakers who hire family members. They uploaded a tool and instructions asking people to look up one member of Congress and report back what they found.

Within two days, the group had data on every member.

"One of the smart things they did is that after you hit submit, they told you, 'While you were working on your lawmaker, four others were submitted.' It was a very subtle clue that you were part of something," Zandt said.

Celebrating Independence This Year?

Our founding fathers who risked, life limb and property in order to create a new nation would be sickened by what we call Independence Day.

The Fourth of July is used as a time to get drunk, watch communist made colors explode in the air and distract us from what we should really be doing.

Spending quality time with family should be a top priority and many people use the fourth to do just that, but face it, this holiday is just a shadow of what it once had meant to those who sacrificed all so that we could get away from the tyranny of King George.

Today, we are becoming a nanny state and in some places outright police state like conditions. How many of the founding fathers would have tolerated random id checks? How many of the founding fathers would have tolerated a national id card, income tax, taxes on taxes, gun control laws, free speech zones, the patriot act, the federal reserve, monitoring of all forms of communication, suppression of free speech and intrusion into our religions? The list goes on and on.

Spend time with your family and when the celebrations are over, get to work to help liberty minded candidates get into office. Now since many are unemployed and have some free time on their hands, this could be a great way to use it towards something worth doing.


GOA Attorney Testifies Against Kagan Before Sen. Schumer's Committee

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
8001 Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151
Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408

Friday, July 2, 2010

On Thursday, Gun Owners of America had the important opportunity to testify concerning the Second Amendment views of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

William J. Olson, counsel of record on amicus briefs for GOA in both the Heller and McDonald Supreme Court cases, testified at the hearing that Kagan has demonstrated "visceral hostility" to the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Moreover, Olson demonstrated that Elena Kagan's view of rights is tied in directly to her view of Judicial Supremacy, that is, that our rights "are whatever a majority of the Supreme Court rules at a particular time in a particular case."

But under that philosophy, Olson said, "what the Court grants, the Court may take away."

So what's the bottom line? "f Ms. Kagan does not know whether our inalienable rights to defend ourselves from criminals and tyrants comes from God -- as the Declaration of Independence states -- or from government, she cannot be trusted to protect our God-given right to self-preservation," Olson concluded.

Click here for video of Mr. Olson's testimony.

GOA will have much more to say about the nomination of Elena Kagan in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, have a happy, and safe, Fourth of July weekend.

URGENT: Congress set to deform America's financial sector

The House and Senate are expected to vote on the final version of the fraudulent "financial reform" bill this week.

We need to defeat this bad bill, HR 4173, which is a whopping 2,319 pages long.

To achieve REAL financial reform we need to pass Ron Paul's Free Competition in Currency Act instead. Please send a letter to Congress pushing for both of these outcomes.

You may borrow from or copy the following sample letter for this purpose . . .

In addition to supporting the "Free Competition in Currency Act" please vote NO on the big Obama-Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, HR 4173. Ron Paul's currency bill addresses the root causes of the financial crisis, while the regulation bill does not.

The financial crisis was caused by . . .

* The Federal Reserve keeping interest rates artificially low
* The Federal Reserve inflating the money supply to satisfy Congress's deficit spending
* Government policies encouraging or forcing financial institutions to issue credit to undeserving people

Together, these policies caused the sub-prime mortgage crisis and the mal-investment of easy money. The result was the Great Recession.

What does the Obama-Dodd-Frank bill do to address these problems?


Instead, it sets up a "Consumer Protection" agency whose regulations will conflict with other regulatory agencies.

* Congress wants to continue the policy of pressuring lenders to continue lending to borrowers with bad credit
* And then when those borrowers default, financial institutions will be blamed for "predatory lending"
* And I won't be surprised if some of these institutions are bailed out at the same time that they are being scapegoated

Worse, the Obama-Dodd-Frank bill will create armies of new regulators determined to harass Main Street businesses who did nothing to cause the crisis!

Even the one good aspect of the bill, an audit of the Federal Reserve, was severely weakened in the conference committee.

But the main problem with this bill is that it increases the power of the very people who helped create the crisis. Consider these insights . . .

* Donald L. Kohn, vice chairman of the Federal Reserve Board: "Many central bankers and economists, myself included, were a little complacent coming into the crisis. We thought we knew enough about the basic structure of markets and the economy. . . . The reality is that we didn't understand the economy as well as we thought we did. Central bankers, along with other policymakers, . . . failed to foresee or prevent a financial crisis."
* Economist Arnold Kling: "The regulators made the same cognitive errors as the regulated."

Politicians and regulators do not know any more about the economy than the businesses and consumers they regulate. But Congress can do much more damage than any business can . . .

* You have vast powers to create laws and regulations that impact the entire economy -- no business or consumer can do that
* You suffer no personal consequence equal to the vast size of the mistakes you make, plus . . .
* You have a disturbing tendency to bailout big businesses and special interest groups to protect them from the consequences of their mistakes

At the heart of the problem is the fact that government is a monopoly. And the solution is for you to restore my freedom to choose. Ending the Federal Reserve's monopoly control over what I use for money is a good place to start . . .

* Americans are essentially forced to use just one currency unit, the dollar
* The dollar's value is NOT determined by the free market, but by the Federal Reserve Board
* This monopoly control by the Fed causes wild price fluctuations and mal-investments in a complex economy

Ron Paul's Free Competition in Currency Act provides the real financial reform we need. It repeals the legal tender law and allows other forms of money to compete.

* Individuals and businesses could negotiate their own terms of purchase, using any form of money they mutually agree on
* The open competition will force the Federal Reserve to stop inflating, thereby ending the booms and busts caused by the Federal Reserve's policies
* Power and choice will be in the hands of the consumer

I insist that you oppose the Obama-Dodd-Frank financial reform bill, HR 4173. Instead, Support the Free Competition in Currency Act!


You can send your letter through's Educate the Powerful System.

We also urge you to tell your friends. Share this on Facebook.
