Don’t Let Fox News Censor DC Downsizer Perspective

Forward this message to concerned friends. And Digg it too!

Has Ron Paul been banned from FoxNews?


Who will win the Presidential campaign? DownsizeDC.org takes no position.

But we must applaud when a presidential candidate agrees with us!

And when only one candidate speaks up for Downsizing DC, his voice should be included in media-run debates and forums.

Let us show you what we mean. There are six major Republican candidates. Rudolph Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Fred Thompson. 

Repeal the Real ID Act – only Ron Paul speaks for that.

Stop the War in Iraq – only Ron Paul speaks for that.

Federal Deficit tied to Congressional Pay Cut – only Ron Paul speaks for that

Repeal the Patriot Act – only Ron Paul speaks for that.

Honest Money – only Ron Paul speaks for that.

Enumerated Powers Act – only Ron Paul speaks for that.

The American Freedom Agenda Act, which would . . .

    * Repeal the “Military Commissions Act of 2007” and thereby restore the ancient right of habeas corpus and end legally sanctioned torture by U.S. government agents
    * Restore the ”Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act” (FISA) and thereby outlaw warrantless spying on American citizens by the President of the United States
    * Give Congress standing in court to challenge the President’s use of “signing statements” as a means to avoid executing the nation’s laws
    * Make it illegal for government agents to kidnap people and send them abroad to be tortured by foreign governments
    * Provide legal protection to journalists who expose wrong-doing by the Federal government
    * Prohibit the use of secret evidence to label groups or individuals as terrorists for the purpose of criminal or civil sanctions

. . . only Ron Paul speaks for these issues. In fact, he introduced the bill!

These issues need a voice. You can send a message to Congress on any of them.

But these issues need to be included in debates and forums. The American people need to learn about the smaller government perspective. Censorship of these very American ideas is unacceptable.

FoxNews, and many in the Republican establishment, have made it clear, repeatedly, that they don’t want a candidate saying such things. And now . . .

According to the New Hampshire State Republican Party and an Associated Press report, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008.

This won’t be a debate. The candidates will be questioned by Chris Wallace (host of FoxNews Sunday), around a table, in a studio on the campus of St. Anselm College. The program will include Giuliani, Huckabee, McCain, Romney, and Thompson.

Do you notice who is missing from that list?

The candidate who would tell the world about Downsize DC issues!

“They Decide. We Report.”

Now you know. 

Now you get to call them on it.

It’s not the candidate that matters. It’s the message. This message must not be snuffed out by FoxNews censorship.

Time is short. Take action and tell them now!

Go get ’em DC Downsizers,

Jim Babka
President
DownsizeDC.org, Inc.
