    GRNC Alert 09-22-10:
    DISCLOSE Act Vote May Come Tomorrow - Act Now

    As we had warned earlier, the so-called DISCLOSE Act, designed to resurrect McCain-Feingold, is now headed for a vote in the Senate. This vote could come as early as tomorrow. If there were ever a time to man your battle stations, it is now. Let our Senators know your wishes.

    If this atrocity is allowed to become law, organizations such as GRNC, Gun Owners of America and CCRKBA will be effectively banned from engaging in political debate.

    Along with that it also does the following:

    * Bans political speech by government contractors and TARP recipients but not unions with collective bargaining agreements with the government or unions who receive dues from government payroll deductions.

    * Imposes legally unsound limitations on coordinated communications between federal candidates and organizations - possibly subjecting candidates to investigations and fines for activity they don't know took place.

    * Creates highly complex reporting requirements - unlikely to impact unions - that would have high compliance costs and disproportionate effects on small businesses.

    * Places more stringent "stand by your ad" requirements on organizations than candidates by forcing organization heads and top funders to appear in ads, stating their organizations' names up to five times.

    * Deliberately and recklessly seeks to affect the 2010 elections by taking effect in 30 days without waiting for the FEC to issue instructions and rules so people can follow the law and avoid criminal and civil punishment.

    Read more background on this:


    The good news is that with Obama, Pelosi and Reid's anti freedom legislation losing popularity among the public, the odds of defeating this are better than they have been. So the time to strike is now.


    * Sen. Richard Burr: Phone: 202 224-3154; Fax: 202 228-2981;
    * Sen. Kay Hagan: Phone -- (202) 224-6342; Webform --

    Dear Senator:

    I urge you to oppose HR 5175, the unconstitutional so-called DISCLOSE Act. This piece of legislation designed to replace the overturned and discredited McCain-Feingold law should not be given any serious consideration.

    Use every step within your means to oppose and stop this attack on free speech. I will be watching the progress of this through Grass Roots North Carolina.

    Both of my messages are sent. They try to make it difficult when contacting them by giving so many categories that it might fall under on their contact form.

    Done by design, they don't want to hear what you think

    Snowe, Scott Brown and Colllins All cast NO votes for cloture on the DISCLOSE bill, so once again, Reid and Schumer are foiled...
    . These three (R) no-voted mean Democrats will fail to meet the 60-vote threshold.

    Final roll call vote 59-39.

    I'm still looking for a vote sheet, so we know exactly WHO voted which way...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
