Speak While You Legally Can
||February 13, 2002
Dear friend of liberty,
The corruption in our political system is as repugnant to me
as it is to
you. Now, the corrupted officials want us to believe
campaign finance reform will "clean up Washington"
and help make them less
corruptible. But the only cleansing campaign reform
will do is to wash the
little guy out of politics and ensure the reelection of the
Washington's language tricksters are hard at work -- but
don't get duped by
the oldest trick in the book. "Reform"
should mean a change for the better,
but can you name one governmental "reform" that
actually improved anything?
How many times has Social Security been
"reformed?" How about public
education? The Internal Revenue Service? Health
care? The United Nations?
In Washington, "reform" always means more

bureaucrats, more rules, more regulations and less freedom.
We're fed up too -- but the new laws will restrict your
rights to criticize the policies of the incumbents while
allowing these same
incumbents to fill the airways with unchallenged campaign
Do you think citizens in New York need to know about Senator
plans to confiscate firearms? Speak out within 60 days
of his reelection --
the time period between Labor Day and election day when
knows most Americans begin to pay attention to election
issues -- and you
would be breaking the law. Do you think citizens in
California need to know
about Representative Tom Lantos' allegiance to the United

short, so-called campaign finance reform would mean that if
Committee made you aware of some really awful votes during
the 60-day period
running up to an election, its executive director -- yours
truly -- could
end up in jail.
Incumbents love it. Bureaucrats think we're stupid.
The debate is taking
place now. The vote on campaign finance reform is
expected to take place
tomorrow at 2:00 a.m.
Tell your U.S. representative that you won't be muzzled.
opinion now...while you still legally can.
