freemarketeer: Help save the internet from censorship in 5 minutes!

Calling all you interested citizens: Congress is trying, at the prodding of Sen. John McCain, to shut down blogs and other online forums for the 30 days prior to elections.

There are some who fight such gross measures. Be one today!

Don't wait for an expensive, class-action lawsuit from organizations who oppose such legislation (and that may or may not be struck down by the Supreme Court as violative of the first amendment): send your letter now.

Send a letter to your Congress person via an editable, pre-fab letter from Ron Paul's The Liberty Committee: http://capwiz.com/liberty/issues/alert/?alertid=8585676&type=CO.

P.S. Please cross-post to all relevant communities and post a bulletin!

freemarketeer: Action Item: Native American Indians' Sovereignty at risk - AGAIN.

Wasn't Andrew Jackson's Trail of Tears enough?  Now the United States Congress people reneg on another treaty with the Indian nation? 

"Dear Friends of the Indigenous Peoples of Big Mountain, Black Mesa, AZ. 

Something critical is about to happen concerning the traditional communities on Big Mountain and surrounding areas on Black Mesa. Today, more than 30 years after the passage of Public Law 93 - 531, the original Navajo-Hopi Relocation bill, a new bill is before Congress that sets a new timetable for the forced relocation of a number of Navajo families on Black Mesa. Senate bill S. 1003 is now on the Senate Calendar and may be passed at anytime without debate or serious consideration unless the public acts now. The last major relocation bill was approved by the Senate within a month after being placed on the Senate Calendar and stayed in the House of Representatives less than a week before becoming law. It's difficult to convey the serious nature of these new developments. The passage of this bill would effectively devastate these traditional communities of Navajo, or Dineh, stripping them of their identity and way of life which is tied into the land itself.

Native people's lives and livelihoods are on the line!...."
