How Do You Spell Shays-Meehan? B-O-H-I-C-A
BOHICA! Bend over, here it comes again! The Shays-Meehan "campaign finance reform" bill, now flying through Congress on the wings of Enron, appears likely to become federal law.
With this bill (and its Senate Cousin, McCain-Feingold), the right of independent pro-freedom groups to place ads influencing elections will be gone -- wiped out.
Those groups will join the increasing ranks of federal criminals if they even mention a candidate's name in an ad within 60 days of an election or 30 days of a primary. (As columnist John Leo pointed out in his February 18 Town Hall column, it would be a federal crime in the districts of Representatives Shays and Meehan even to say, "The Shays- Meehan bill is a bad idea!")
Your friends in the media, who have always wanted to take your guns away (and whose rights to speak -- mislead, distort, and propagandize -- are NOT restricted by Shays-Meehan) totally support this bill.
What can we say? How about "We told you so"?
If you haven't already, please go and read the JPFO article, "The Last of the BOHICANS."
This article explains where "politics as usual" always gets us -- NOWHERE -- and why it happens. Politics is a losing game for freedom -- because it's a rigged game. And because the American culture has been "hypnotized and Jenningized" into giving up freedom any time the politicians ask for it or the bureaucrats seize it.
If you want to have a real chance of regaining freedom, you must put your most enthusiastic efforts into educating your friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, and children.
Drop those begging letters to your unheeding "representative." Reach out to people who can listen. Remind them of what freedom really is (it's not just a buzz word in a political speech). Teach them about the traditions, the documents, the courage, the conviction that gave us freedom and can protect our freedoms, even today, if we heed them.
JPFO has the simple, straightforward educational tools to help you reach people who've been numbed by TV and government schooling. (Read all about those tools at the end of "The Last of the BOHICANS.") Gran'pa Jack booklets, our full-length books, and our upcoming TV documentary, "Innocents Betrayed" are there to do just that. We urge you to use them.
But whatever method you choose -- don't waste your time on politicians. To win back freedom, change the culture. Restore America's Bill of Rights culture. If you haven't already begun, get started today -- BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.
