imperialism & war

Hey ! Senator, This is Democracy in Action

By letting your Representative know that non-binding resolutions are not enough, and that they must support bills to end the war - or it will be their war too, not just George Bush's.
Send a email letter to your State Representative today 1-27-07 urging support of HR 508
Simply "disapproving" of President Bush's plan to escalate the war in Iraq is not enough to stop it, as he has already make clear. The non-binding resolution that will be offered in the House is not enough - you must vote to end the war.

Accordingly, I urge you to co-sponsor H.R. 508, the "Bring the Troops Home and Iraqi Sovereignty Act of 2007," introduced by Rep. Lynn Woolsey. This comprehensive bill would provide all necessary funds to bring our troops home (and prohibit permanent U.S. military bases there), while accelerating support for a National Iraqi police force, providing assistance for reconstruction and reconcilliation in Iraq, and guaranteeing adequate health care for all U.S. veterans.

I urge you again to co-sponsor this bill. Please be aware: if you continue to fund this disastrous war, it will not just be President Bush's war anymore - it will be your war too.

Please let me know how you intend to vote on this critical issue.

Sincerely, H.R. 508 Supporter,
