Laura,
We are in the fight of our lives.
We are about to lose our 4th amendment and life can only get worse if the Hoyer/Bush FISA disgraceful "compromise" passes.
Would you please get this message to all the truthers?
I am sure they will want to sign this petition and also call their Senators through Capitol Hill switchboard at (202)[masked]
Senators will vote on this as soon as Tuesday 7/8/08 and we need EVERYONE to object before it is too late.
Thanks!
Pat
