SUBMIT THIS ACTION FORM TO YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS & YOUR LOCAL PAPER:
There has been a tremendous amount of alarm expressed recently about H.R. 1955/S. 1959 [text of bill], the self-titled "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007", but which many have dubbed the "Thought Crimes Prevention Bill".
The language of the proposed bill is just an idle invitation to totalitarian mischief and must be rejected.

Just What We Need, Another House Un-American Activities Committee
Like so many recent bills, whose official title is a dishonest representation of its true intent, H.R. 1955/S. 1959 includes enough vague and undefined language to be very grossly abused. At best, it is gratuitous, an election year stunt to try to fool us into thinking that Congress is actually doing something to protect us, while our real national security has never been lower. At worst, it has witch hunt written all over it.
The one click form below will send your personal message to all your members of Congress selected below, with the subject "H.R. 1955/S. 1959 Is Too Flawed To Pass" At the same time you can send your personal comments only as a letter to the editor of your nearest local daily newspaper if you like.
