And speaking of heros, Naomi Wolf has a new book out called The End of America: Letter to a Young Patriot. As Naomi recently asked on HuffPo, "Is it still America if the president ignores or deliberately eviscerates the Constitution?"
Along with the Center for Constitutional Rights, Human Rights Watch, MoveOn.org, and
True Majority, Naomi is spearheading a new grassroots and grasstops democracy movement, the American Freedom Campaign, and has asked us all -- as well as each of the presidential candidates -- to sign the American Freedom Pledge. The pledge reads:
"We are Americans, and in our America we do not torture, we do not imprison people without charge or legal remedy, we do not tap people's phones and emails without a court order, and above all we do not give any President unchecked power.
"I pledge to fight to protect and defend the Constitution from assault by any President."
Now if a candidate can't sign that, then I for one sure as hell can't vote for her (ok, ok, or him). I heard on MSNBC the other day while on the treadmill that the campaign has already had 20,000 hits. Go Naomi, and go America. The America that believes in the Constitution, that is.
Join us in signing the pledge!
