    Washington, D.C. is often referred to as "Inside the Beltway" or
    "Belly of the Beast." A more appropriate reference, however, is
    "The Twilight Zone."

    In 1961, there was an episode of "The Twilight Zone" titled "The
    Obsolete Man." In that episode, the government finds a librarian
    to be obsolete and sentences him to liquidation.

    Has that eerie bit of 1961 fiction become a chilling reality today?
    Congress, the president, and the Supreme Court have, with the
    Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (McCain-Feingold), found
    political speech by average American citizens to be...obsolete. What
    will government mandate next...liquidation?

    On February 11, 2004, Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, along with
    several other members of The Liberty Caucus, introduced the "First
    Amendment Restoration Act" (H.R. 3801). This legislation would
    restore Americans' First Amendment rights by repealing sections of
    the McCain-Feingold law that forbid issue-advocacy groups, such as
    The Liberty Committee, Gun Owners of America, American Conservative
    Union, Concerned Women of America and the National Rifle Association,
    to inform their members about important issues and votes relative to
    incumbent candidates during the 30 and 60 days before primary and
    general elections.

    So during that 30-60 day period when the U.S. Congress takes a vote
    on abortion, immigration, gun control, United Nations, taxes,
    treaties, etc., we won't be able to tell you about it without
    committing a federal crime and risking jail time! Even a simple
    E-mail alert will violate the law!

    McCain-Feingold, passed by Congress, signed by President Bush, and
    affirmed by the Supreme Court, muzzles the average American who
    doesn't have a high-priced lobbyist to represent his views in our
    nation's capital. Under the guise of "cleaning up our political
    process," incumbent politicians increase their job security by making
    it illegal for average Americans to participate.

    The Liberty Committee strongly supports H.R. 3801 and encourages you
    to speak in favor of this critical legislation -- while you still can.
    Don't let the political elite make you "The Obsolete Man."

    I would love to see this piece of horrible legislation (McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act) gutted and made useless.
    It seems the friends of Liberty and Freedom are getting fewer and fewer in congress.(Thankfully we still have some though)
