NEW CAMPAIGN: 28 pages that could change the world

ddc-header

AND THIS FROM JIM BABKA of DOWNSIZE DC:

Bush & Obama kept a secret from you; a key ally may have helped the 9/11 terrorists. Re-Tweet this.

Some current and former members of Congress are under a gag order. They cannot say what they know about the 9/11 attacks.

This goes back to 2002. The House and Senate Intelligence Committees investigated the 9/11 attacks. But…

* President Bush censored 28 pages of the final report.
* President Obama hasn’t released those pages even after promising he would.

The few members of Congress who’ve read the pages swore not to reveal their contents. But they say a U.S. “ally” was involved in the 9-11 attacks.

Should Congress find out more before it continues to fund the War on Terror?

Do families of 9/11 victims deserve to know what’s in those pages?

Do you?

If you say “yes” to these questions, tell Congress to demand that the President declassify the pages through DownsizeDC.org’s new “Release the Censored 9/11 Pages” campaign.

The hard-wired message says…

Pass H. Res. 14, urging the president to release 28 censored pages regarding the 9/11 attacks.

You may borrow from or edit these additional comments…

I also want you to demand personal access to read the 28 pages for yourself. Here’s what your colleagues who read them have said…

Rep. Walter Jones (http://1.usa.gov/1Fc7mX4): “[T]he information contained in the redacted pages is critical to our foreign policy moving forward and should thus be available to the American public.”

Rep. Thomas Massie (http://bit.ly/1qDpbFD): “I had to stop every two or three pages and rearrange my perception of history…it’s that fundamental.”

Former Sen. Bob Graham (http://bit.ly/1z9TTZb): “The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11, and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier.”

Could it be that 9/11 was really an act of WAR by a foreign State?

If so…

The “War on Terror” is based on LIES.

You must get to the bottom of this. That means…

Before you spend one more dime on surveillance at home and attacks abroad, DEMAND that the censored 28 pages be released.

PASS H. Res. 14!

–END OF LETTER–

Send your letter using DownsizeDC.org’s Educate the Powerful System.

Taking any stance on 9/11 earns you trouble. I know, because I lost two valued friends over it. Remarkably, their positions were polar opposites! So I know lots of folks won’t like what I wrote today. They’ll leave us.

That’s why, today, it’s just not enough to send a letter to Congress, as crucial as that is! We need your financial support, so that we can keep taking firm and principled stands like this.

Please, make a generous donation today, because we’re in danger of running a deficit this month. At our current pace, we’ll be nearly $2,000 shy of what we need to pay April’s bills. Someone reading this, right now, could cover the whole thing. But it will probably require a group of people, contributing various amounts, to get the job done.

And we’ll continue to stand tall if you’ll stand behind us.

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer,

Jim Babka

The Pilgrims and Property Rights: How our ancestors got fat & happy

unnamed

 

The Pilgrims founded their colony at Plymouth Plantation in December 1620 and promptly started dying off in droves.

As the colony’s early governor, William Bradford, wrote in “Of Plymouth Plantation”:

“That which was most sadd & lamentable was, that in 2. or 3. moneths time halfe of their company dyed.”


When the settlers finally stopped croaking, they set about creating a heaven on earth, a society without private property, where all worked for the common good. Everything was shared. Especially bitching and moaning about working for the common good. Bradford again:

“Yong-men that were most able and fitte for labour and service did repine that they should spend their time and streingth to worke for other mens wives and children, with out any recompense….And for men’s wives to be commanded to doe service for other men, as dresing their meate, washing their cloaths, etc., they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could many husbands well brooke it.”

With nobody working, everybody was suffering. And in case you think nobody was working simply because they couldn’t understand a damn thing Bradford was saying, chew on this: In 1623, Bradford and the other leaders

“Assigned to every family a parceel of land…this had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more torne was planted then other waise would have bene by any means the Govr or any other could use, and saved him a great deall of trouble, and gave farr better contente.”

In no time at all “any generall wante of famine hath not been amongest them since to this day.”

America would never go hungry again. So this week, before you drift into your annual tryptophan-induced coma, don’t forget to give thanks to the true patron of this holiday feast: property rights.
