Vote Tally

****************

December 7, 2004

If you were a member of Congress, would you vote "yes" on a 3,000 page
bill that you never had a chance to read? Most reasonable people
wouldn't. Most reasonable people would want to read and study
legislation before deciding how to vote; especially legislation as
monumental as the intelligence reorganization legislation or the
so-called 9/11 bill.

And monumental it is. The legislation would greatly affect various
intelligence and military agencies and procedures; financial systems;
international relations; not to mention civil liberties. In addition,
the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the legislation will
cost $14.4 billion to implement between 2005 and 2009. That's $14.4
billion on top of the normal annual budgets for the various
governmental agencies involved.

Yet this monumental legislation will be voted on by members of
Congress without those members having had time to read, let alone
study, the bill. It's just after 2:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December
7th. The U.S. House is expected to vote on the 9/11 bill sometime
today or tomorrow. But at this moment, there isn't a copy of the final
bill available for House members to read.

So, is there a provision in the bill to establish a national ID? No
one seems to know. Or at least the people who do know aren't saying.
What else is in the bill that the select few in Washington are keeping
secret? Who knows? Anything could be...and that's the point.

Remember how passage of the Patriot Act was handled? Members had only
two to three hours to read the final 400-page bill before they had to
cast their vote. The legislation that created the Department of
Homeland Security was handled in the same way.

So, here we go again. Everyone is talking about this monumental
legislation as if they've read it. News reporters, commentators,
political analysts, think tanks; 9/11 families; and yes, members of
Congress are busy sounding off as experts trying to convince the
American public that Congress should pass it. Have any of these people
actually read it? Their opinions are just based upon someone else's
opinions that are based upon other people's opinions and so on.

The House version of the intelligence reorganization bill is in two
volumes. Volume 1 is 1,778 pages. Volume 2 is 1,586 pages. How many
pages are in the final conference report and what exactly has been
added or deleted at the last minute? Well, as of 2:00 p.m. ET, the
final report is not available for members to read. But the vote on
that enormous bill will be held within hours.

We urge a "no" vote because we believe the bill has a national ID
provision in it. In addition, we urge a "no" vote, simply because
members of Congress should know what the bill says in print before
voting on it.

Take action now. The bill still has to pass the Senate on Wednesday.

Emergency Alert: National ID/Patriot Act 2 Legislation On Verge Of Passing

Prison Planet | December 7 2004

At approximately 3:30pm today, Ron Paul's press secretary Jeff Deist
called Alex Jones to warn him that the legislation that encompasses
the national ID card and Patriot Act 2 provisions was on the verge of
passing the House tonight. http://infowars.com
http://prisonplanet.net

Deist stated that the bill and what it means for America could be
described in a word as 'tyranny'.

Deist's tone was the most concerned that Alex had ever known in his
years of communication with Ron Paul's office. Alex made it clear how
upset Desit was and that the situation reminded him of a 'war room
atmosphere'. Deist and Ron Paul are desperate to mobilize the
alternative media before the bill reaches the Senate tomorrow.

There is still a chance that we can shoot down the national ID card
provisions before the bill is passed in full.

Deist went on to exclaim his disbelief at how the so-called
conservative Bush administration had betrayed America and how Paul's
colleagues on Capitol Hill were blindly going along with this and
doing whatever Bush tells them to do without question.

For the past two days mainstream news articles have talked of a
'compromise' which was made with the few dissenting voices and that
the bill would be steamrolled through.

However, those articles fail to mention the very worst aspects of the
bill, instead pitching it as a mere reformation of intelligence
communication and protocol.

PLEASE CALL YOUR LOCAL CONGRESSIONAL OFFICE RIGHT NOW AND VOICE YOUR
OPPOSITION TO THIS BILL.

The bill is S 2845 or 'intelligence reform' and the sub-section with
the national ID card provisions is 7212.

Tell your congressman to get the federal mandates for standardized
drivers licenses out of the bill.

According to Deist, the bill would not only introduce the national ID
card, but make it mandatory to have a job as well as setting up
internal checkpoints in the USA. (Does this mean that anyone
without a job goes to one of the private prisons so that THEY
can make money?.........L.)
