New US Senate Bill Threatens Grassroots Activists

As reported on and other "alternative" web sites, there is a bill introduced in the American Senate, S. 1 - the so-called "Lobbying Transparency and Accountability Act" - that would put immoral restrictions on grassroots activism.

As reported by Amanda B. Carpenter in the neo-conservative Human Events, this bill would command groups as small as 500 people to register with the government, report every three months on their activity and pay fees and taxes. Big corporations and unions and current lobbying groups would be exempt. Failure or refusal to obey this unjust law would result in civil and criminal penalties.

The new group Grassroots Freedom is gathering support from both the American Left and Right to stop this unjust proposal in it's tracks. The Review backs this effort to stop S. 1, especially its Section 220 that promotes these shackling restrictions. Call and write your Congressman and Senator this week and DEMAND they leave grassroots activism alone for good.

And tell your friends and neighbors to do the same. It does effect them and their rights to free speech and activism. Thank you.

I bet we'll get a lot more of this garbage if John McCain becomes the G.O.P.'s 2008 candidate. Even if he loses, he'll intensify the debate on campaign, PAC, and 527 funding.
Sam Brownback for President in 2008!
