The Need To Speak

Silence Is Sedition.

It is our silence that passed the Patriot Act. It was our silence that allowed the “Niger uranium” lie to go unchallenged. It is our silence that turns Iraq into Vietnam. It is our silence that allows laws with Orwellian names like “Clear Skies” (for an act encouraging air pollution) to pass. It is our silence that lets Faux News rule the airwaves, our silence that keeps Ann Coulter in business, our silence that lets Republicans even here lie through their teeth about anything they want without being called on it.

As an American, you have an obligation to come to the aid of your country. Right now.

Stop standing silent. Speak up, speak out, be heard.
