HR 1955/s goes too far

-A A +A
By The Staff

We have a new threat on the horizon - HR 1955/S. 1959 Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.

The only homegrown terrorism I see lately is our own government trying to create a totalitarian police state. This is a government of the people, for the people, by the people. We are not of one mind, one belief, one religion. We are a diverse group of people and we have a right to assemble, to vote and to speak out when our government has gone too far.

This bill goes too far. I urge everyone to read the actual bill. Then you will be convinced, as I am, that we cannot allow this to pass.

Please write your representatives and tell them vote no on this bill. Then follow up. If they vote yes, then we need to vote them out of office in the next election.

If you are not registered to vote, then please register. Get out there and vote, and let this government know we will not be lead on a hate mongering path or a witch hunt of our own citizens.
