Take Action: No More Illegal Wiretapping!

The Progressive Patriots Fund, Russ Feingold's Leadership PAC, has created a pretty cool community action system. Just yesterday, we set up a community to act as a conduit for the "50 Blogs for Feingold" project. Let's get active and make our voices heard.

Push Bush on his Illegal Warrantless Wiretapping Program

President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear President Bush,

The court recently declared your domestic warrantless
wiretapping program to be illegal and unconstitutional.

I believe that we can fight terrorism while protecting our
rights and freedoms, and that's why I agree with Senator
Feingold: we need to bring this program back within the law.

You don't run this country, Mr. President. We the people do.
Wehave spoken on this issue and you continue to disregard
our wishes. Thus, you've forced us to teach you a hard
lesson come Election Day. I'll take great joy in delivering
you a Democrat-controlled Congress on Janurary 3.

Maybe you'll start listening then.

Sincerely,
Your Name

Plus, you'll get free stuff! Yes, yes, it's true. You'll get this carefully crafted message back from the White House:

While reading this moving response, you can almost hear ol' W. telling you that he "'preshiiates" your insights. And this line: "The President is committed to continuing our economic progress, defending our freedom, and upholding our Nation's deepest values" is priceless, isn't it?

So, act now and Push Bush on his Illegal Warrantless Wiretapping Program
