STOP S.O.P.A. UrgentGram

To my Representative and US Senators

Right now, the same folks that brought you the so-called "Patriot" Act, indefinite detention of American citizens, and an unaccountable TSA and an invasive Department of Homeland Security are preparing to wage war on our freedom online.

Two bills - SOPA (HR 3261) in the House and Protect IP (S 968) in the Senate - are being pushed by the Big Government leadership of both houses.

The bills give the government the power to put someone out of business for even minor copyright violations. In fact, as originally drafted, these bills give the government the power to shut down websites on even a private allegation of a violation. No investigation. No charges. No trial. No jury. No verdict. Entire websites could be shut down for inadvertent violations, malicious attacks, or a made-up claim.

If the government takes the power to regulate the internet and shut down information, no matter what the stated reason, you and I cannot control what they do with that power.

For these reasons I, as your constituent, urge you to oppose SOPA (HR 3261) in the House and Protect IP (S 968) in the Senate and preserve internet freedom."

Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater

E-mail Print PDF

A movie I have not seen but will seek out:

The documentary bounces back and forth between personal stories about Goldwater, told by his family, reporters, and politicians, and a chronology of his career in politics. Some of the interviewees include Sen. John McCain, Sen. Hillary Clinton, George Will, Al Franken, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, and Walter Cronkite.

Goldwater was born in Arizona back before it was even a state, and spent much of his time roughing it in the outdoors, photographing nature, and hanging with Native Americans. His films of the Grand Canyon (one of which is included as a special feature on the DVD) gave him notoriety within the state, and allowed him to work his way up the political chain to become a U.S. Senator. His unwavering libertarian and conservative views, summed up in his book Conscience of a Conservative, made him somewhat of a rock star in the Republican Party. After losing his bid for the presidency, Goldwater served in the Senate until 1986.

Mr. Conservative also chronicles Goldwater's dedication to his beliefs and the Constitution, even as his own party moved away from him. Goldwater championed personal freedom, including the right for a woman to have an abortion and for gays to serve in the military (and get married, for that matter). During the 1980s and up until his death in 1998, he spoke out against the "Christian Right" and the social views of the modern Republican Party. He once called on all Christians to kick Jerry Falwell in the a**.

The documentary provides a look back at the bygone days of campaign stumping and rah-rah presidential campaigns, devoid of any sort of You Tube debating.       

You might find it in the "bay" of the internet....
