Politics with Conscience and Compassion


Message forwarded from "Million Phone March," an activist group:


This evening [November 10] the House rules committee announced that it was DROPPING the planned invasion of the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve from their version of the budget bill. You generated 12,000 submissions on that one issue alone, which may well have turned the tide.

Now we have to do at least that well in challenging the immoral plan of the right-wing tax cut maniacs to recoup SOME of the money for even further unconscionable gifts to their most wealthy cronies. With supporters of the president's greed agenda dropping like flies in last Tuesday's election, there is a REAL opportunity for major policy change if we speak out now, especially with all members of the House up for re-election in just one year.

ACTION PAGE: Save our social services

It is scandalous that a regime that claims to draw its mandate from followers of Jesus Christ would propose to take food from the hungry, steal medicine from the sick, and rob clothing intended for those who are already naked. It is time that our policy decisions represented the true values of the "people of faith" they like so much to take for granted,
while this administration's actions reflect the exact opposite. Indeed, people of all faiths stand for social compassion. It is time to END the national nightmare of train wreck budget deficits, and again require the most fortunate to pay their fair and rightful share.

ACTION PAGE: Save our social services

With the proven power of your activism, we can restore fiscal sanity, pull our economy out of the ditch of supply side hucksterism, and get it back on the road to sound and prudent social justice. The United States of America will not be dictated by the culture of CRUELTY. Won't you take this opportunity to send your personal message to all your members of Congress? And you can make it a Letter to the Editor of your nearest daily newspaper at the same time, all with one click.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
