A leaflet to hand out

Sam suggested on OpenLeft:

...creating a simply leaflet for people to hand out at 4th of July events or to family etc. at barbecues. It should be constitution themed, have like a three sentence explanation of the issue, and then have contacts for Obama. Should also have info for where people can look up their own Senators' contact info, and encourage people to join the MYBO group and the FB group.

Great idea!

Let's use this page to design the text (which at least gives people something to print out), and if any graphic designers would like to work on the layout, please do! Some initial suggestions below ...

Here is a printable leaflet set in Caslon (the same typeface that the Declaration of Independence is set in!) There are two flyers to a page.

  1. View the flyer (PDF), print it out. You'll have to add the contact info for your Senators & Obama, unless you live in CA or NJ.
  2. Cut it in half
  3. Post them around town ASAP!

(If you want me to add any other states or want to suggest changes, contact me. -eeblet)

Honor our Constitution

Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. "

Without your help right now, a flawed FISA bill is about to give George Bush and the phone companies a pass after years of illegally spying on millions of US citizens.

What can you do? Something fun, easy and patriotic?

Ask your Senators and Barack Obama to vote against the current FISA bill next Tuesday, July 8th.

Don't let illegal wire-tappers off the hook! Please, no immunity for phone company crimes!

Please call now:

Senator [Name & Phone]Barack Obama HQ (866) 675-2008
Senator [Name & Phone]

Be courteous, but be direct. There is no time to wait. The Constitution is for keeps.
