START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Oct 26, 2007

FYI below
Just to let you know, all the below has been violated by this Government, these are the laws THEY are supposed to UPHOLD and ABIDE by. I copied them from the papers they were wrote on. Just FYI

The Bill of Rights

Article the sixth ... The right of the people to be secure in their persons,
houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall
not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause,
supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
(ya, the Patriot act? and they often TAKE other things for themselves to keep or sell)

Article the seventh ... No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or
otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand
Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia,
when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be
subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor
shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be
deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall
private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
(oh no, they wouldn't take private property (bull) have you noticed court costs lately? Higher than the fine!)

Article the eighth ... In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy
the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and
district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have
been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause
of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have
compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the
Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
(ya right, if you believe this, I'll sell ya California, they might keep you in jail for a few months first, they call that speedy??)

Article the tenth ... Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive
fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
(this isn't even funny, people have lost homes, jobs and family)

From the Declaration of Independence

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome
and necessary for the public good.
(say what?? this is what the king of Britain did? kinda sounds familiar)

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly
firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
(same has above, Congress must be AFRAID of him BUT yet, they will send our children to their deaths in other countries!!! GGRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!)

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolution's, to cause others to
be elected; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have
returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the
mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions
(same has above, IF 9/11 WAS an outside job, why didn't WE GET DEFENDED from at least all the planes but the first one!!  Our Soldiers should BE HERE DEFENDING AMERICA, the CONSTITUTION and the BILL of RIGHTS and from THIS ADMINISTRATION for dis-obeying all of these FACTS!)

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to
Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
(same has above)

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their
offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
(same has above, boy, I wish I COULD PICK MY OWN JUDGES!!! I bet I WOULD NEVER BE GUILTY of ANYTHING I DID, humm, no wonder BU$H is UN-IMPEACHABLE! WE should vote for the judges!)

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of
Officers to harass our People
(same has above, CIA, FBI, a whole lot of other "I's", the STATE Police, The COUNTY Police, the City Police, the Sherrif, Dept, IRS, I hope our National Guard and Military don't turn on us like they did at Kent State. They (the Russian Military) DID NOT TURN on the RUSSIANS when they tore that wall down)

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving
his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
(same has above, I think we can call this the Senate and the House)

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
(same has above, income tax, Alcohol, Tobacco, Gun, Amunition, etc. And WE ARE PAYING FOR A WAR WE DO NOT WANT!!! Is there something wrong with this picture? or, is it my imagination? )

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and
altering fundamentally the forms of our Governments:
("HE" Said the Constitution was just a GD peice of paper. I wish "he" could tell THAT to our FORE-FATHERS and all the others whom have DIED protecting it FOR US!)

For suspending our own Legislature, and declaring themselves invested with
power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
(same has above, "They" know what IS right for US, even IF we disagree??)

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to
complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with
circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous
ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
(watch out Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, who will be next?)

In every stage of these Oppressions we have Petitioned for Redress in the
most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated
injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define
a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
(same has above, "They" have a DEAF EAR toward U.S. and NOTED!!!)

From the Constitution

Amendment 2 - Right to Bear Arms.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
(you can have a gun, if they say so, or if you agree to kill people whom THEY do not like)

Amendment 15 - Race No Bar to Vote.

1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
(has long has you didn't grow pot, so do not break any of THEIR LAW
Amendment 27 - Limiting Congressional Pay Increases.

No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.
(no, they did not vote themselves a raise, they instead voted themselves a huge tax break, it was the SAME AMOUNT!!)
Oh ya, lets not forget "The Freedom of Speech!
  (has long has they like what you say)

Not to nit-pic Michael, you forgot the illegal collection of taxes! As taxes are supporting the War and His/Their salaries, withhold! So how many million people are you able to impress to NOT pay their Federal Taxes? The Federal fiscal year is the end of ??when? The IRS cannot put everyone in jail!!!!!!!!

We can't wait til 2008!
Dennis in '08 - Kucinich is the true voice of the people!:
Kucinich has done this:
(1) co-sponsoring with Rep. John Conyers HR 676, a universal health plan;
(2) voting AGAINST the Patriot Act;
(3) voting AGAINST invading Iraq;
(4) promising to withdraw from the World Trade Organization and NAFTA, & standing opposed to weapons in space;
(5) voting against a flag-burning amendment;,
(6) advocating a 12-point plan to get our troops safely out of IRAQ;
(7) voting to cut off funds for prosecuting the Iraq war;
(8) urging the signing of the Kyoto Protocols to cut down on pollution;
(9) advocating education for all, from kindergarten through college;
(10) urging the creation of a Department of Peace,
(11) ending the phony "war on drugs”;
(12) urging renewal of the environment;
(13) sponsoring HR 333 to IMPEACH Vice President Dick Cheney; and
(14) abolishing the death penalty.
All of these positions favor the people over the wealthy and well-connected.

Michael, thank you so much! This is so truly important- to me, it's been the gravest crisis this country has faced since Bushco came into office (and probably before).
I would add another important petition to your list for people to sign- see if this petition resonates with you, also, ok?

lol. Copyright Laws. You ought to see the mess they made of them. The DOJ is now trying to get their share of profits without helping the individual.
Alberto Gonzales' last stand.
Called the 'Intellectual Property Protection Act of 2007.' It doesn't protect anyone, but gives Government the Right to convict people for 'attempted' Infringement, and collect fines without helping the 'Individual.' It even states that!
The Center for Social Justice is trying to redefine and protect us 'Individuals' with the 'fair use' section of the Law, and I'm trying to get rid of the Statute of Limitations.
It has not been easy...
Thank you for the info, and have a great week.
