This isn't a time to do nothing. This isn't a time to hope others do this for you.

I may be a nobody, and few may see this (fewer may actually do it), but you can help. Alert other artists, encourage the spread of this information, if nothing else.

Get informed.

Make a stand.

And this is where I become cynical and ask: Do you really think that your Congress rep is actually going to listen to what we have to say if a big enough funder taunts them with re-election campaign contributions?

In a perfect world, the reps would speak for the people. At least, that's how this is supposed to work. We elect them to speak for us.

The offer of campaign contributions will mean nothing if s/he ignores a huge chunk of voter's wishes. At least, that's what logic would tell you.

In a perfect world there would be a 24 hour Walgreens on every corner.

.....sorry that commercial comes to mind when ever anyone makes a reference to a 'perfect world'. Yay, for corporate brainwashing.

But by the time thy're in office it's too late anyway. We can't physically control them. The idea is good in theory, but has been perverted through continued practice.

(Loves playing the devils advocate.)

That is true enough.

There is no substitute for being heard, though. Taking a stand- that's the only way to make a change.

Seen it, read it, signed it. I've also posted this to my journal and facebook. We've got to get the word out and encourage people to participate.

Sickening, really. There's no way in hell that shit's gonna pass and stay as law without riots. Massive riots. And I will join such riots. When the Internet becomes censored and "safe", I will stop using it.
