I, blogger Marc Perkel, founder of the Church of Reality, am extending an open offer to publish recorded phone calls of members of Congress. I’m especially interested in publishing the personal phone calls of members of Congress who voted for giving immunity to telecoms who were illegally spying on Americans. If they can spy on us then let us spy on them.
Additionally I am looking for personal information on members of Congress regarding their personal credit card spending. Since Congress is now trying to require that credit card companies turn over your purchase records to the government I think it’s time that we spy on them to see where members of Congress are spending their personal money.
This sort of spying is outrageous. I am in stunned disbelief that members of Congress would even consider such a law. It is as if they are wiping their asses with the Bill of Rights. I don’t know any other way to get their attention other than having it happen to them so they can know what it’s like to be spied on. So even if this is illegal sometime it is necessary to break the law in order to restore the law. If they are going to let the telecoms to break the law then why can’t we do it?
When the president breaks the law he should be impeached rather than having Congress retroactively bless his illegal acts. This decision sends a message to future presidents that if you break the law then Congress will cover up for you. It also sends a message to big corporations that if the President and members of Congress asks them to conspire with them to break the law that they will receive immunity. This encourages corporations to break the law and them rewards law breaking.
Besides covering up the wrongdoing of the President it also covers up the wrongdoing of members of Congress who knew Bush was breaking the law and conspired with him through their silence. These members are complicit in acts of treason to the Constitution and they are just protecting their own asses in this immunity bill.
If you have the personal cell phone numbers of members of Congress please forward them to me so that we can contact them directly about what we think about them selling out our freedoms.
Furthermore Congress is working on a new bill requiring credit card companies to turn over your purchasing records to the government. So in order to make Congress feel our pain I’m asking The People to dig through the trash of members of Congress and publish their credit card information.
I think they should pass a law requiring anyone who is going to run for Congress pass a written test to see if they actually read and understand what the Constitution says. How can they swear to uphold the Constitution if they haven’t even read it?
As the founder of and member of the Church of Reality I’m claiming a religious exemption from federal law on the basis of our sacred religious principles under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Government spying on our church members violates our Sacred Principle of Personal Privacy and under our Principle of Activism we have to take a stand on this issue.
