lonelantern — June 14, 2010 — http://RestoreTheRepublic.com | http://RealityReport.tv | A new bill is about the change the face of politics forever. The "Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections Act" or the DISCLOSE Act, should be renamed the "Stifling Grassroots Political Support and Removing Political Privacy Bill". This act affects ALL people and organizations. The bill, Sponsored by Maryland Representative Chris Van Hollen has moved out of committee and currently has 114 Cosponsors. It is on its way to the House floor for a vote.
What this means is the Government wants to create a list of all people who donate to all organizations who support political campaigns so they can post it on the FEC website, then the organization has to link to the respective information, on the FEC website, from their site.
This will be an excellent way to build a list and keep track of political opponents for future targeting and harassment. HR 5175 only creates one more list, alongside the other lists the government keeps like the terrorist watch list and the no-fly list.
So, what do we need to do? It's time to rally the troops and TAKE ACTION! Please urge your congressman to vote against HR 5175. http://www.contactingthecongress.org/
