Under this bill, we would have two justice systems in this country. Under one justice system, the super-rich and large corporations can break the law with impunity, then ask their Congressional pals to pretty please give them a get out of jail free card. The other justice system, the one in which most Americans will know, brings the full-weight of the justice system to bear on someone who has committed even the most minor criminal infraction. That a Democratic-led Congress would capitulate on this, for no other reason than the fear of being called weak on terror is unconscionable. If the elected representatives of the American people won’t lift a finger to defend the Constitution, then we have no choice but to take up the cause ourselves. Call your congressman and Senator Kerry and tell them to oppose this awful piece of legislation. You may also want to call Democrat Presidential candidate Barack Obama and urge him to take a greater leadership role in stopping this bill. There is also a grassroots coalition forming that has raised over $200,000 to fight this legislation, you can contribute here
