Any arrangements for contributing by plastic (VISA, etc.)? Since I don't live in the U.S., I don't have a checking account there.

If you want to beat CFR, why did you choose Starr?
So, that you'll lose on the most important aspects of the bill in court?

By the way, the ACRU was the client for the very successful brief also filed by Congressman Billybob in the Bush/Florida case.

Which one was that? Could you make a link please?

I know you've got some tough competition, Billybob! GO GET 'EM!!!

EVERYONE - Please read this from the March 11 issue of National Review...

Supporters of campaign-finance regulation like to portray themselves as an underfunded, scrappy grassroots coalition. However, a study conducted last year for the American Conservative Union by election-law attorney Cleta Mitchell found that groups dedicated to promoting campaign-finance reform spent over $73 million over the three-year period from 1997 through 1999. By comparison, the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP), one of the most prominent campaign-finance-reform organizations, lists total political spending by the "mortgage banking" industry at under $12 million, and by "Health Services and HMOs" at under $14 million, for the four-year period from 1997 through 2000. Even the dreaded drug manufacturers contributed just $28 million over that four-year period, or 40 percent of that spent in just three years by groups promoting campaign-finance regulation. Yet the campaign-finance regulators always portray these industries as colossally and harmfully big spenders.

Later in the same article you find this tidbit...

Assuming it becomes law, the bill will not end the influence of money in politics, but instead will drive such influence further underground. A glimpse of the future may have occurred at a dinner last October that raised $800,000 for the Brennan Center, a pro-reform group. Co-chaired by pro-reform senators Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer, and featuring Sen. John McCain, the dinner was underwritten by corporate donors, who were solicited to attend. Sponsors included over two dozen large law firms with Washington lobbying practices, plus such corporations as Coca-Cola, Philip Morris, and, naturally, Enron.

This National Review Article was entitled, "The Gaggers and Gag-making - Hypocrisy among the campaign-finance reformers" and was written by Bradley A. Smith, a member of the Federal Election Commission.

I am very proud to know you. Do you know if any of our views on the subject are getting through to President Bush? I can't imagine that he cares much but I wonder if any of his staff knows how damaging this is to his political base.

Congressman Billybob, may God bless you and your efforts to defend the Constitution.

May I call your attention to a suggestion I made on this thread? The idea is simply to persist in referring to the bill as "the unconstitutional CFR." This should help make people aware that the bill is indeed unconstitutional.

All right boys and girls as the old saying goes, talk is cheap.

This is a good thing for your local chapter to get involved in.

You don't have to be "commercially" connected to get plastic donations. Check out PayPal. It is secure and it works.
