|Help Defeat CAFTA!

Since this vote is so very crucial relative to continued USA sovereignty, not only am I calling my two congressmen, I am calling ALL the Republicans who are committed to voting YES and those who are wavering on how to vote. In my case, I point out I worked in the Reagan Administration, am an author, and I leave my name, address, website, tel. no. etc. and ask that my message be put on the congressman's desk.
It's great to have the Liberty Committee's list of congressmen in favor, opposed, and on the fence. We must use it. All you need to do is to print out the list found at thelibertycommittee.org and then get to work by calling the Congressional switchboard at 202-224-3121. I have found the staff in the first three Republican Congressmen's offices, Barton, Bass, and Beauprez, very cooperative and understanding. However, I was unusually polite (for me, that is, on an issue like this!). The old saying about catching flies with honey rather than vinegar applies. They promised to put my message on congressman's desk.
The following is my pitch:
I inform them of the following remarkable comment by former President of the Soviet Union MIchael Gorbachev:
During a visit to London in March 23, 2000, former Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, referred to the emerging European Union (EU) as 'the new European Soviet.'
I point out that what Bush is implementing in this hemisphere is the same communist regional system (regionalism is communism) and can be similarly referred to as The New American Soviet. All regions being created internationally are modelled on The European Union.
This scenario is quite similar to the three-stage plan outlined by Stalin at the 1936 Communist International. At that meeting, the official program proclaimed:
"Dictatorship can be established only by a victory of socialism in different countries or groups of countries," after which there would be federal unions of the various groupings of these socialist countries, and the third stage would be an amalgamation of these regional federal unions into a world union of socialist nations. (quote courtesy of Prof. Dennis Cuddy)
In closing I ask them to consider some of the reasons why Holland and France rejected the European Union Constitution, thus slowing down the loss of sovereignty in Europe and the move towards a Soviet system, and point out that the CAFTA vote is similar in its importance, and is thus the most important vote ever taken by the U.S. Congress.
I apologize for bothering them with a request from outside their congressional district/state, but emphasize my decision to do so is based on my deep, deep concern for our country and our children's futures, and the threat posed by all international treaties, but especially CAFTA, since its passage will represent the end of our nation's sovereignty and the political/economic and social freedoms to which Americans have become accustomed.
Please keep me posted regarding whatever reactions you get. Also, please forward to your lists.
Thanks for listening and God bless all of you who take this last ditch stand!
