Congress should read the Constitution -
Virginia Tech/HR.2640 (and audio)

On December 19, just six days
before Christmas, the US Congress put a lump of coal in the stocking
of every citizen who believes they have a God Given right of
self-defense. On December 19, the US Senate passed House Resolution
But before discussing what this terrible piece
of legislation does to you let�s look at what they used to justify
As we all remember there was a tragedy at
Virginia Tech when a deranged man went on a shooting spree. By the
time it was over 32 people were dead and many others were injured.
Sadly, the Virginia Legislature had denied Virginia citizens the
right of self defense at college campuses.
In January 2006, prior to the tragedy, and
effort was made in the Virginia Legislature to correct this problem
and restore the right of self defense.
1572 was introduced and the gun control fanatics killed the bill
The Virginia Tech Administration was part of
the effort to kill this bill. The Virginia Tech spokesman had this
"I'm sure the university community is
appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will
help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our
But were the parents, students, faculty and
visitors safe on the Virginia Tech campus? The 32 who died and the
others who were injured were not safe! But where was the Virginia
Tech spokesman who helped deny their right of self defense? Was he
there to defend the now unarmed individuals? No � he was
locked away in a secure Administration building. Was the Virginia
Legislature there to defend then? No � they were not. In fact
the gun control advocates are never there when you or your family is
faced with bodily harm!
Now back to Congress. Just like the Virginia
Legislature, by passing House Resolution 2640 they are denying
countless citizens their God Given right of self defense. Veterans
that have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome will be
barred for life from obtaining a firearm. Kids who have been
diagnosed with ADHD will be denied for life. The list goes on and
When these citizens or their families are
faced with bodily harm will Congress be there to defend them?
Of course not!
Even the way this terrible legislation was
passed is despicable. On June 13, 2007 the US House passed it by
voice vote, not one single Republican or Democrat would stand up and
demand a recorded vote. On December 19 the US Senate passed it by
unanimous consent. Not one single Republican or Democrat would stand
up for your God Given right of self defense. None, Zero.
Here is my question.
If every member of the US House failed you,
failed the Constitution and has placed countless Americans at risk
of death or bodily harm � are you going to send them back so they
can squander more of your God Given rights?
If the 1/3 of the US Senate that up for
election in 2008 failed you, failed the Constitution and placed
countless Americans at risk are you going to send them back for
Your rights are like a cookie. No matter how
big the cookie, and how small the bites, eventually you run out of
cookie. Is that what you are waiting for?
Think about it.

Would you like a
Real Choice in 2008? Help us give one to Georgia.
If you have been
following either the actions of your government at all levels or the
current political environment there is a fair chance that you are
not satisfied. Unless you are a Party over Principle Republican or
Democrat it is fairly obvious to most Georgians and Americans that
we are losing our Founding Principles.
One reason is that the "two party" system has become
embedded with special interests. Whether you want to call them
special interests or just "Big Money" or prefer some other term, it
doesn't change the current situation. The "two party" system is
failing America, it is failing you and your family and it is failing
your children and grandchildren.
In fact it doesn't matter whether you tend to be
conservative or liberal in outlook, unless you have the same outlook
as the big money of special interests you have less true
representation than possibly at any time in our country's history.
As an example, in last years Georgia Legislature
elections 70% of Georgian had one choice on their ballot in
November. That made it a tough decision, were you going to vote for
"more of the same" or "more of the same."
In every other facet of American society we tout
competition as the cornerstone of world leading products
and services. In the political arena two "companies" so to speak
have used their combined control of the Legislative process to "eliminate"
So if you believe in the free enterprise system then
you should already be aware that- limited competition and
common control of the two "companies" by a common board - i.e..
special interest money - is not a formula for success.
If you want to see increased political competition,
increased choices when you go to the ballot box then you need to
help make such a change.
One step that the Southern Party of Georgia is
trying to take in 2008 is to co-sponsor a TV issues show. Not only
will the show be on current issues, we will get a TV ad at least
twice a day. For the first time Georgians will see a televised
message about a political party in Georgia that places Principle
over Party and has read the Constitution! In fact has read both the
Constitution of these united States and the Constitution of the
State of Georgia.
We need your help to pull this off. We need 50
people to pledge $10.00 a month for the first six months of 2008 for
the initial contract. 20 people to pledge $25.00 a month for the
same six months or any combination of pledges that reach $500.00 a
month for six months.
Don't send the money yet, just let us know if you
will make the commitment. If we reach the goal and sign the contract
we will let you know so that you can send the money.
Can you help us reach this goal and take another
toward building a Real Choice for the People of Georgia? If we can
count on you please email your pledge to
just give us a call at: 706-374-4643.
If you believe that it is time to start working toward
more political competition, please give this your prompt attention.
Our window of opportunity is very short.
Update: December 30: We need $50.00 per month to reach our
goal. Can you help us?
