3 days: 30,000 anti-amnesty pledges hit Senate

WASHINGTON – The first three days of “The No Amnesty Pledge” campaign generated 30,000 individual letters to members of the Senate through today.
Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, says he hopes to emulate the famous “pink slips” campaign that inundated Capitol Hill with nearly 10 million threats to fire members of Congress who, among other things, supported national health care and cap-and-trade legislation.
“Amnesty will spell the death knell of this country,” says the organizer of a new campaign designed to flood the U.S. Senate with letters of sharp protest as it begins discussions of a sweeping new comprehensive immigration reform plan.
“Amnesty will tear this country apart,” says Farah. “When 70 percent of Americans support Arizona’s dramatic and courageous action to fill the void of federal failure on policing our borders, Washington is about to flout the will of the people once again. This is a brazen action to buy illegal votes. This is utter contempt for the rule of law and the will of the people. It must be stopped. This will be a genie that cannot be placed back in the bottle.”
To combat it, Farah came up with “The No Amnesty Pledge.”
It’s an easy and inexpensive way for American citizens to make their voice heard effectively throughout the entire U.S. Senate – reaching all 100 members with “The No Amnesty Pledge,” he says. And all at a cost of just $24.95.
“I want you to visualize boxes of these protest messages arriving in every member’s office every day,” explains Farah. “They are guaranteed to be delivered by Fed Ex. It’s the power of collective action. It demonstrates that we mean business – that Americans will not accept the destruction of their country lying down.”
If you’re tired of jammed Capitol switchboards, fax machines getting turned off and the hassle of writing letters only to your own representative and two senators, this program offers you a real bargain in getting your voice heard in Washington.
A dozen members of Congress sent unsolicited testimonials to the power of the “pink slips” campaign, both in changing minds and emboldening the opposition. Five members of Congress held a press conference on the Capitol grounds to commend the program. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., went on Fox News Channel to extol it.
“This is a powerful new vehicle that allows busy Americans to be part of a major demonstration of power and discontent,” says Farah. “Don’t wait. Who knows how quickly the Senate may act on this plan to increase the size of the constituency of those who know their days are numbered.”
How else could you send by Fed Ex delivery 100 individually addressed letters, individually signed by senders to members of the U.S. Senate for just $24.95?
