Sign the McCain FEC Complaint Letter

By his own admission, John McCain is breaking the law. His latest spending report has him $4 million over the limit he imposed on himself when he accepted public financing.

We’re not about to let this stand, so on Tuesday we filed an FEC complaint against the McCain campaign (check out the video of delivery to the right). Now we’re set for a second larger delivery of 30,000 signatures of Americans who won’t stand by while John McCain breaks the law.

Undoubteldly, if the Rosthchild’s want McCain to win, McCain will win.

McCain’s campaign has sent out an invitation for a March 20 luncheon at Spencer House — the neo-classical home built for an ancestor of Diana, the late Princess of Wales — “by kind permission of Lord Rothschild OM GBE and the Hon. Nathaniel Rothschild.”

Now I know what you may be thinking. I was also awe-struck by the ‘results’ in New Hampshire. But do not surrender your support too quickly! The results have only just come in. If you’re a Ron Paul supporter, you must have voted. If you live in (or near) New Hampshire – you have a new calling. Organize! Go into masses. Prove your support.

We don’t have to expect that Ron Paul should have certainly won. But only 8%?! It just doesn’t make sense.

Straw polls may only be a sample of the population, and they may have been taken months ago. But are we to simply believe that all that support in New Hampshire is virtually gone? I can’t believe it – that according to NH, all that support we know about has basically disappeared.

Consider the following:

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition are an excellent organization for the anti-prohibition movement. Being those who have to arrest non-violent ‘criminals’ for drug use, their statements on the issue are hardly deniable. Hard drugs are being used by people who need help – it’s a health issue. Building prisons is now a growing industry. Millions of Americans are arrested every year for drugs. And it costs about $69 billion annually in taxpayer money.

This phony ‘war’ is destroying people lives. These are often people who need help and are non-violent, and police know it. People don’t belong in prison nor deserve to have a criminal record simply for the possession of marijuana. Medicinal marijuana patients, including the old, sick and dying, young teenagers, and all kinds of people are suffering from poor drug policy.

I have seen Jon McCain respond to questions on this issue before, and every time I see the same things: resentment of the person who has asked the question and dedication to his position on the issue. He clearly believes that the people who use drugs are the problem and enforcement are a solution.

This police officer tells McCain why it’s the policy, not ‘drug offenders’ who are the problem.

McCain: “Do you believe that methamphetamine ought to be legal?”

Police Officer: “I think what we need to talk about is the drug policy.”

McCain: “Yeah, but, you know, it’s one thing to talk about policy, it’s one thing to talk about specifics… Do you think methamphetamine ought to be legal?”

Police Officer: “I don’t think that if somebody gets caught with methamphetamine we should be putting them in prison, period. We should be helping them. We should help people who are addicted to drugs…[applause]… If you arrest somebody, it does not solve the problem. You just said there was a drug cartel. There would not be drug cartels if we were to regulate drugs.

In Switzerland they have public heroin clinics where people can go and get help – with clean needles to come off drugs. There’s no doubt that drugs are dangerous, but our policy does not do anything to help people who are addicted.

If you arrest a 16-year-old for possession of marijuana, and they get a criminal conviction… you can get over an addiction but you can never get over a conviction… they lose their funding to go to college. And no one can ever say that keeping a kid from going to college is something good.”

McCain: “I’m sorry you didn’t have a position on methamphetamine. But, uh, I do agree with you… strongly.”

McCain becomes clearly nervous on this issue, as you can see after the applause to the officer.
