Do You Care About Your Liberties?

Some will say that we don't have many liberties left and not doubt they are correct in some ways.

But how many actually care about preserving what we have and restoring what we are rightfully entitled under the US Constitution?

It is shameful in a way that people will complain about the condition of our nation and the loss of our freedoms, but will do absolutely nothing more.

I have heard people say, "you cant defeat them using the political process" and "You cannot defeat them in the courts."

That type of mindset will only lead to frustration and I tend to believe that people who live their lives believing their is nothing we can do are either provocateurs, saboteurs or cowards.

Yes, there are people who call themselves anarchists who enjoy provoking law abiding citizens to breaking the law and then there are those who want to sabotage your efforts because they fear you are making advances. Finally the cowards will sit at home and whine and complain but do not have the courage to stand up and speak up about those things they deem are wrong with this nation.

Face it, it you are truly concerned about the loss of liberty, you will get involved in the political process and if need be the judicial as well.

Run for office, start, class action lawsuits, get behind a candidate that will preserve and restore liberty. We must strive to take our country back one city, one county and one state at a time.

Stand Up, Speak Up, Live Free

Kagan Hearings Are Over -- Vote Coming! TELL YOUR SENATORS NO WAY

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to send the nomination of Elena Kagan to the full Senate floor on Tuesday.

The 13-6 vote was not a surprise. Democrats outnumber Republicans 12-7 on the committee, and their ranks include the anti-gun extreme wing of their party, such as Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin.

Six Republicans opposed Kagan, with only turncoat Lindsey Graham of South Carolina voting to confirm the anti-gunner.

As this important battle moves to the Senate floor, it is important to keep the heat on all Senators -- especially Democrats coming from rural states who claim to support the Second Amendment.

If a handful of these Senators vote NO on Kagan, her confirmation could be defeated.

While Kagan does not have a record of judicial opinions, her views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. Some things that have come to light since her nomination include:

* While serving in the Clinton administration, Kagan drafted an executive order to ban certain semi-automatic firearms;

* As a law clerk, she advised against the Supreme Court considering Sandidge v. United States in a case that questioned the constitutionality of the D.C. gun ban, writing that she was "not sympathetic" to the gun owner's Second Amendment claims; and

* Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the President pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

During her hearings, Kagan ducked and dodged questions about the Second Amendment, and she refused to declare whether she believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Kagan insisted that the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald are precedent and "settled law," but this in no way precludes her from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- are consistent with the Constitution.

Recall the confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor, the newest Supreme Court Justice. Sotomayor assured the Senate, and the American people, that she accepted the Court's ruling in Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Yet, in the McDonald case, Sotomayor joined the dissent in writing that "I can find nothing in the Second Amendment's text, history, or underlying rationale that could warrant characterizing it as 'fundamental' insofar as it seeks to protect the keeping and bearing of arms for private self-defense purposes."

Now Kagan has made the same promises to the Senate, but the available evidence portrays her as a forceful advocate of restrictive gun laws and driven by political considerations rather than the rule of law.

As GOA attorney William J. Olson, who testified at the hearings, noted: "If [Kagan] were to go on the Court, with what we know about her now, she could be the most anti-gun justice on that Court."

There is NO WAY any Senator who claims to support the Second Amendment could vote to confirm anti-gun radical Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States!

ACTION: Please urge your two Senators to oppose the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Senator:

I stand with Gun Owners of America in opposing the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.

While Kagan does not have a record of judicial opinions, her views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. Some things that have come to light since her nomination include:

* While serving in the Clinton administration, Kagan drafted an executive order to ban certain semi-automatic firearms;

* As a law clerk, she advised against the Supreme Court considering Sandidge v. United States in a case that questioned the constitutionality of the D.C. gun ban, writing that she was "not sympathetic" to the gun owner's Second Amendment claims; and

* Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the President pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

During her hearings, Kagan ducked and dodged questions about the Second Amendment, and she refused to declare whether she believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

Kagan insisted that the Supreme Court decisions in Heller and McDonald are precedent and "settled law," but this in no way precludes her from ruling that almost any gun law -- including gun owner registration, purchasing limits, waiting periods, private sale background checks, and more -- are consistent with the Constitution.

There is NO WAY any Senator who claims to support the Second Amendment could vote to confirm anti-gun radical Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States!

Please vote NO on the nominee's confirmation.

Sincerely,

Take Action - Keep the Heat on Senator Reid!

Only July 15th, GOA members rallied behind U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle, who's taking on anti-gun Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada.

While Reid claims to support your gun rights, our alert highlighted 42 Reasons why Harry Reid MUST be defeated.

Well, that list has now grown as two additional anti-gun votes were added.

In March of this year, Sen. Reid voted against an amendment offered by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) to prevent Veterans from losing their Second Amendment rights without due process of law.

The amendment was offered to the massive ObamaCare bill, which Reid was so intent on passing that he wouldn't allow a pro-gun amendment to get in his way.

And in November of last year, Reid voted to confirm the highly controversial Richard Hamilton to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Hamilton has stated that the Founding Fathers intended judges to amend the Constitution through "evolving case law."

So, you can now view the 44 Reasons why Harry Reid MUST be defeated!

And while you're there you can now also vote in a GOA Poll to let us know whether you think Harry Reid is pro- or anti-gun.

But there's more that we all must do to win this important race. Please forward this alert to as many freedom-loving Americans as you can and urge them to support Sharron Angle.

Harry Reid's goal is to raise $25 million in this race against Sharron Angle.

That means it's crucial for one million pro-gun Americans to send Sharron Angle $25. If one million of us from across the country chip in, Sharron will match Reid's campaign war chest and WE WILL WIN!

So please, urge all your friends, gun club members and other pro-gun groups to go to www.sharronangle.com and make a contribution.

Contributions by check can also be mailed to:

Friends of Sharron Angle
PO Box 33058
Reno, NV 89533

There is no race in the country more important than this one. If any gun owner or sportsman has any doubt if Reid is pro-gun or anti-gun, just read the 44 Reasons to Defeat Reid, then decide, and also take the GOA Poll.

Thank you again for standing with Gun Owners of America and Sharron Angle and for forwarding this is email to as many pro-gunners as you can.

Sincerely,

Tim Macy
Vice Chairman

Trust us, We will Protect Your Data, We're from the Government

Trust us, We will Protect Your Data, We're from the Government. I've heard that one time too many. I could go on and on about examples of the government who is entrusted with some of our most intimate details have lost confidence since the passage of Real ID

You can see many examples of personal data from medical records, bank, universities and more, lost lap tops, stolen data from workers, data breaches, lost backup tapes and much much more at www.privacyrights.org Beth Givens has dedicated a great deal of time and effort to ensure that your information is kept private and only used for the purposes for which you have provided it to various businesses.

Congress when they passed the Real ID in 2005 knew full well the American People would not be deceived into accepting a national ID card. But they touted the Real ID as a means to protect us from terrorists and to ensure that our drivers licenses' would be secure.

So along with the Real ID Act of 2005, one piece of additional legislation was to be adapted to protect our identifying information. It is known as the Drivers Privacy Protection Act or DPPA. This piece of legislation not only does not protect our private information, but it actually allows the DMV to sell, share or rent any and all of your data to private corporations for whatever they want to do with it.

The Data that can be shared
Name,
Complete Address
Date of Birth
Socialist Security Number
Your Photo
Medical Information
Any other information you may have provided such as immigration documents, birth certificates and marriage records.

The 5th Circuit court of Texas just ruled that Companies Can Buy Bulk DMV Records

"Private companies can use this information to prevent insurance fraud, verify a worker's driver's license, notify the owner of a towed or impounded vehicle, and conduct research and surveys, among other permissible uses. Government agencies, law enforcement officers and licensed private investigators are also authorized to use DMV records.

The panel concluded that it's legal for someone to buy DMV records in bulk "for the purpose of making permissible actual use" of those records, "even if that person does not actually use every single item of information therein.

Defendants included research companies, online database operators, grocery chains, insurance companies, employee screening services, technology businesses and consulting companies."

I toured NC and spoke to many groups and churches about the dangers of Real ID and the Drivers Not so Private Privacy Protection Act.

Perhaps, people will listen now. Perhaps, they will urge their legislators to stop this madness, or perhaps instead vote in those who will repeal or re-write this law to include some real protections for Americans, or perhaps Americans will remain silent on the issue and become the easy target of identity thieves.

URGENT: Senate vote on "Financial Reform" this week

The Senate will vote on the Frank-Dodd financial (non)reform bill (H.R. 4173) this week and possibly as soon as today. Although it has the votes to pass, it doesn't yet have the 60 votes needed to break a filuster.

This bill will only strangle our already-ailing economy, and will do nothing to prevent future financial collapses or bailouts. Please tell your Senators to support the filibuster and oppose Frank-Dodd through our Reduce Regulations campaign.

You may borrow or copy from this letter . . .

Reducing regulations would actually be the best reform of the financial system. The fraudulent Dodd-Frank bill will only create powerful new armies of regulators who won't actually reform anything.

As David C. John and James L. Gattuso of the Heritage Foundation point out . . . http://www.kentucky.com/2010/07/09/1342459/reinforcing-too-big-to-fail.html

* At 2,300 pages, none of you will have read the bill or know what, exactly, is in it
* The bill empowers regulators to seize private property and "wind down" firms they, and they alone, judge to be "failing."
* A Committee to guard against "systemic risk" won't possibly possess all the knowledge to do their job, and will only discourage and stifle innovation
* The Consumer Protection bureau will reduce the number of options and choices of informed, responsible customers
* The new bureau will also issue supposedly "consumer-friendly" regulations that will conflict with the goal of other regulators of protecting the safety and soundness of financial firms
* By abolishing retail debit card fees (a practice that had nothing to do with the crisis), banks will be forced to raise revenue other ways such as eliminating free checking (and some banks have already begun to do this)
* The bill does nothing to reform Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, two firms that played a huge role in causing the financial crises - which makes future bailouts probable

It gets worse . . .

* A provision to audit the Federal Reserve was gutted in the final bill
* Section 342 seems to require quotas for women and minorities for government agencies and contractors, as if current laws and current departmental civil rights enforcers weren't enough http://tinyurl.com/3997jfu

I don't see how this bill provides ANY benefit to me or to the nation. Instead of reforming our financial system, it just empowers politicians and bureaucrats to reward your friends and punish your enenemies.

A REAL reform bill would . . .

* require greater accountability in the market by forcing even large firms to face the threat of bankruptcy
* abolish "government sponsored enterprises" like Fannie and Freddie
* provide a real and thorough audit of the Fed, whose decisions did so much to cause the crisis

Please introduce real reform that would unleash our over-regulated economy. And I DEMAND you oppose Dodd-Frank!

END LETTER

You can send your letter through DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

If you live in one of the following states, it would also be particularly helpful to call your Senator:

Iowa: Chuck Grassley (Republican)
Maine: BOTH Susan Collins (Republican) AND Olympia Snowe (Republican)
Massachusetts: Scott Brown (Republican)
Washington: Maria Cantwell (Democrat)
Wisonsin: Russ Feingold (Democrat)

You will see your Senator's phone number when you are logged into the system.

And we encourge all of you to tell your friends to take action! Forward this to your friends and share it on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/downsizedc

Thanks for doing your part to Downsize DC!
