GOP Leadership holding up Rand Paul's gun protection amendment? Rand asks for help from the Grassroots Tea Party

Word is that the GOP leadership is holding up Senator Paul’s amendment to protect law-abiding gun owners from the “Patriot” Act. As if that wasn’t bad enough, we are also hearing that GOP leadership is lobbying other Republicans to oppose the amendment!

If you can, please help by contacting Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell at (202) 224-2541 and Senate minority whip Jon Kyl at (202) 224-4521 right now and demand that they stand with Rand on this amendment.

Contact:
Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell at (202) 224-2541
Senate minority whip Jon Kyl at (202) 224-4521

NRA are turncoats

NRA are turncoats, too. They didn't support Ron Paul in 2008 and didn't take a position on Rand Paul's amendment.

Gun owners - have you seen this?

"Additionally, Lautenberg has introduced an amendment of his own, this one to close the "terror gap" by giving federal authorities the power to block the selling of guns and explosives to individuals on the terrorist watch list. As of Thursday morning there was no word from Democratic leadership if that amendment, like Paul's, would get a vote."

I guess we all know who's going on that list...

This is GREAT

Just sent it to all my gun totin, Rush listening, Tea Partying, family who see nothing wrong with the Patriot Act. I'm telling you, this is THE issue that could break minds wide open. Rand is JUST as brilliant as his father

Rand just had to explain it to them

Message:

"STAND WITH RAND" or I am actively going to work from TEXAS (or whatever your state is), toward your defeat next election cycle.

Force must be met with force and firmness. They do not understand anything else. All they care about is their re-election. That doesn't mean, be rude to the poor sap taking calls for these jokers, it means your message should be clear, polite, but firm.

I hate to sound like GWB, but you are either on the side of Liberty and the Constitution, or you are with the terrorists. And right now, the "terrorists" are winning.

I will repeat myself

Believe me, I KNOW the regular people who "support" the Patriot Act. AND they "support" the Tea Party and Rand and (they THINK) the Constitution and they see no CONFLICT.

THIS GUN ISSUE is the key that is going to unlock the door for them in seeing all the connections!!!! The information on this fight MUST go to all of your neocon Tea Party friends. This could be the shot heard round the world.

ditto

Ditto to elviejo's comment, only I call it the KGB Act (in newspeak titled "Patriot Act").

Here's a sample cognitive dissonance letter for Republican Senators re the "Patriot" Act:

Dear Honorable Senator _____,

I respectfully urge you as a leader in the Senate, to please help refute Harry Reid’s sleazy procedural tactics intended to squash debate and prevent amendments to the so called “Patriot Act.” Please stand up for what is right and protect America’s founding constitutional principles. Do not let the terrorists win by abandoning America’s principles of freedom, due process, rule of law, and judicial oversight that our founders so wisely laid out for us.

I kindly urge you and the rest of the Republican leadership to stand up for American values, and oppose any extension of the anti-American Patriot Act, and support Rand Paul’s proposed amendments to the Act.

As Benjamin Franklin wisely stated, “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” It is up to the Republican leadership to do what it can to help oppose the Harry Reid's attempted extension of this KGB style anti-American Patriot Act (more aptly known as the KGB Act).

Respectfully,

Let it not be said that we did nothing.-Ron Paul
Stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone.-Sophia Magdalena Scholl
