What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

"Those who are willing to allow the government to establish a Soviet-style internal passport system because they think it will make us safer are terribly mistaken."

The only question remains is how many Americans will stand up and say no' If you want to stop this before it can be implemented, then you must act at once - Bush hasn't signed this bill yet, but he will. Don't send an e-mail, call your member of Congress. They millions of e-mails every year. Forget it. Call them. It's not too late.

In Fallujah, Freedom Isn't Free - Retina scans to get into your own home. Work details under armed guard. No cars. Military armor on every corner.

These are just some of the details of the new order in Fallujah. Somewhere between a concentration camp and what US troops called a strategic hamlet in Vietnam, this is the latest version of Washington's freedom and democracy installation in Iraq.

Before the US House of Representatives, October 8, 2004 Mr. Speaker, the 9/11 Recommendations Implementation Act (HR 10) is yet another attempt to address the threat of terrorism by giving more money and power to the federal bureaucracy.

Most of the reforms contained in this bill will not make America safer, though they definitely will make us less free. HR 10 also wastes American taxpayer money on unconstitutional and ineffective foreign aid programs.

As Election Day 2004 approaches, there has been the inevitable talk in the media about possible fraud: illegals voting, felons voting, dead people voting, minorities not voting, etc.

One side denying some the right to vote and the other side letting some vote as often as they like. While that type of fraud is despicable and must be prevented, the election fraud that I'm talking about would be the election of John Kerry. If it should happen, it would constitute the greatest fraud ever foisted on the American public.
