>PROTECT YOUR FREE SPEECH RIGHTS. SIGN THE
>PETITION TO STOP THE McCAIN/SHAYS "GAG ORDER":
Here's how McCain-Feingold/Shays-Meehan will undermine the
pro-family movement and stifle your rights:
It restricts your free association rights by shutting grass-
roots organizations like the Center for Reclaiming America
out of the policy debate!
It will ban issue-oriented TV or radio ads within two months
of a federal election if the ads even mention a member of
Congress. This would silence pro-family groups like the
Center for Reclaiming America ? the groups that give you a
voice in the key issues of our day ? during the most cru-
cial debates facing our nation!
Even worse, McCain-Feingold/Shays-Meehan would empower
liberal strongholds and allow the mainstream media to
increase its control over the flow of information during
campaigns and crucial issue debates!
McCain-Feingold/Shays-Meehan?s negative impact extends well
beyond elections. At any time during the year, pro-family
groups could not even discuss pro-life or pro-family legis-
lation with a member of Congress and then report the find-
ings back to grassroots supporters. That would be ques-
tionable "coordinated activity" which could prompt a sti-
fling FEC investigation!
Even this petition would likely be classified as "coordinat-
ed activity" that could result in investigation and sanc-
WHO WILL REPRESENT YOUR VALUES WHEN PRO-FAMILY GROUPS ARE
SILENCED? THE LIBERAL MEDIA? LABOR UNIONS? THE BLOATED
WE MUST STOP McCAIN-FEINGOLD/SHAYS-MEEHAN NOW!

GOD save America from herself
No State shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license
it, and charge a fee therefor. --Murdock v. Pennsylvania,
319 US 105, US Supreme Court, 1943.
The U.S. Supreme Court broadly and unequivocally held that
requiring licensing or registration of any constitutional
right is itself unconstitutional. --Follett vs. Town of
McCormick, S.C., 321 U.S. 573 
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in
making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I
do no?t undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to
extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal
them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel
old ones that do violence to the Constitution ... or have
failed their purpose ... or that impose on the people an
unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discov-
er whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first
determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And
if I should be attacked for neglecting my constituents'
'interests,' I shall reply that I was informed that their
main interest is liberty, and in that cause I am doing the
very best I can." --Barry Goldwater
What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are
not warned from time to time that their people preserve the
spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed
from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It is its natural manure) Thomas Jefferson
Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.
"If no one among us is capable of governing himself, then
who among us is capable of governing someone else"
There are very few problems in the world that cant be cured
by the appropriate amount of high explosives. --unknown
"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in
most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine
this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever
standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the
people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext
whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated,
is on the brink of destruction. " -- Henry St George Tuck-
er, in Blackstone's 1768"Commentaries on the Laws of Eng-
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would
things have been like if every Security operative, when he
went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain
whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his
family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for exam-
ple in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire
city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling
in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every
step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing
left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an
ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or
whatever else was at hand. -- The Organs would very quickly
have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and,
notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine
would have ground to a halt!"
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn,*The Gulag Archipelago*
"Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to
man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physi-
cal force against legally disarmed victims. When unlimited
and unrestricted by individual rights, a government is man's
deadliest enemy. It is not as protection against PRIVATE
actions, but against governmental actions that the Bill of
Rights was written." --Ayn Rand "Man's Rights", April, 1963.
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption
for authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the
Constitution was made to guard the People against the dang-
ers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who MEAN
to govern well, but THEY MEAN TO GOVERN. They promise to be
good masters, but THEY MEAN TO BE MASTERS."
DANIEL WEBSTER U. S. Senator New York (circa 1850)
"... it is NOT reasonable that mankind would be free ..
therefore FREE men are NOT reasonable; we are intractable,
we are immoderate, we are fanatic, we are un-compromising,
we are determined, we are stubborn, we are un-cooperative
(except for brief periods), we are unforgiving, we are
obnoxious, we are EVERYTHING and ANYTHING it takes to main-
tain that sense of liberty that will keep us free even if we
are imprisoned." -- unknown AMERICAN patriot of the late
"After having thus successively taken each member of the
community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will,
the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole com-
munity. It covers the surface of society with a network of
small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which
the most original minds and the most energetic characters
cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man
is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom
forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from
acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents
existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, ener-
vates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each
nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid
and industrious animals, of which the government is the
shepherd." -- Alexis de Tocqueville
