Ensign, Lieberman & Brown MUST be contacted about their "Shield Act" if you want to join Ron in his battle!Submitted by ausscyn on Thu, 12/09/2010 - 23:59
Please, if you have the time today or tomorrow, contact John Ensign, Joe Lieberman & Scott Brown about their anti-Wikileaks legislation called, "The Shield Act."
You can read about it here:
Below is what I sent to all three:
I am writing to you regarding the "Shield Act" which you introduced to punish people for activities such as Wikileaks. While I agree that the information that has been published is detrimental to the United States and its diplomatic and intelligence operations, I feel that the detriment is due to the ridiculous activities that masquerade as "diplomacy" and "intelligence." Wikileaks is to be commended for bringing these activities to light, out from under the rock, so that American citizens have some idea of the kinds of activities in which our government is putting us at more risk, rather than less.
The Wikileaks put me in mind of the Pentagon Papers and the brave deed that Daniel Ellsberg committed in revealing this information to the American people. At the time, he was called, "the most dangerous man in America." He more aptly could have been described as "the most courageous man in America." Our First Amendment rights should not be compromised in any way. Your "Shield Act" is compromise of the worst sort, and I can't entreat you enough in saying that this is not what the American people want.
Please view these three short videos, and perhaps you will rethink your position.
