Demand a House Vote on McCain Amendment

Support the McCain Amendment!
fatcat politicsWe must stand firm in our support of the McCain Amendment.   Act For Change has made available another petition to ask Speaker of the House Hastert to make sure the amendment is passed intact.   Our voices are being heard.   More and more Lawmakers are taking a stand against the lies that took us to war.   With momentum on our side it is important to keep up the pressure.   We can not keep sending the signal to the world that we torture our prisoners.   It is a disgrace and it is wrong and it is Un-American.   Please join me in supporting this effort.   - fc

Demand a House Vote on McCain's Anti-Torture Amendment

I believe the Senate did the right thing when it passed Senator McCain's anti-torture amendment (S. Amdt. 1977) to the FY 2006 Defense Appropriations Bill (H.R. 2863) by a bipartisan vote of 90-9, including 46 Republican "yeas." The amendment would prohibit the inhumane treatment of prisoners in the "war on terrorism."

Opposing torture is not a partisan cause. The practice of torture so fully embraces evil it dehumanizes both the torturer and its victim. No just cause can be won if it relies on torture to succeed.

I urge you to stand up against torture by doing everything in your power to ensure that Senator McCain's amendment is included in the final FY 2006 Defense Appropriations Act. Vice President Cheney is urging key representatives to allow exceptions to a clear condemnation of torture. Please ask your party leadership and conferees (when appointed) to make sure that when the final bill is passed, the United States will be able to assure the rest of the world that we will stand for freedom and human dignity, not torture.

30,000 weblogs. One Day. One Voice.
When the list reaches 30,000, a date and a word will be listed on the page. On that date, every weblog on the list agrees to make a single post with the word as the title. The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
