Dear Republican Representative:
I want to say first and foremost that I hope that you have had a great Thankgiving.
As a fellow Republican, a life long Republican I am writing to beg you for your help so that we can again be thankful for America’s freedoms next year.
The reason our phone number ends with 1776 is because that was the year of America’s Declaration of Independence. Webster’s dictionary says that Independence is “freedom from the control of another” and its thesaurus says to be Independent is to be
“self ruling, autonomus, unregimented”. Its antonnym is “dependent, subordinate, subservient”.
America has been “INDEPENDENT” for 218 years. Unfortunately, if we do not get serious immediately, AMERICA WILL LOSE IT’S INDEPENDENCE THIS YEAR.
I am writing you today with very serious urgency about GATT/WTO (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade/World Trade Organization). If approved by you the Congress, it will end AMERICA’S INDEPENDENCE.
I was thrilled with you on the great victory that Republicans enjoyed nationwide on November 8, I shared in your excitement about what America gave us on that day. That victory and that jubilation will be short lived if you vote for GATT/WTO during
the “lame duck” session of Congress. Everything that Republicans have worked so very hard to accomplish in the last 40 years will crash and burn if they vote with their leadership of Newt Gingrich and Bob Dole.
Why, I plead with you, are you trying to save Bill Clinton’s presidency? Please, please vote NO ON GATT/WTO, so that the American people can really get an airing of what GATT/WTO is all about. By voting NO right now, you’re only delaying it so that a
true airing and debate will take place in the 104th Congress. The Congress that we have all worked, and worked and prayed to come about for the last 40 years. The control of Congress by Republicans.
The reason why you may not really be having your phone absolutely jammed all the time with your constiuents calling you and saying VOTE NO ON GATT/WTO is that the liberal democrat controlled American News Media has not been airing the opposition’s
side, and the truth about this treaty. I don’t have the time in this letter, and you don’t have the time to read about all the details about that, we’ve held protest rallies with really good T.V. footage, press conferences, and the news media by in large
has not covered us, but if you don’t believe me give me a call. It appears that the News Media is trying to get you Republicans to vote for this thing, so that you will take the fall and lose the seats that you gained on November 8 and for you to lose
another 25 to 50 seats two years from now, so that Bill Clinton is re-elected President because Ross Perot or someone else runs as an independent or third party candidate.
What am I asking you to do? Very simply I am asking you and your colleagues to vote NO ON GATT/WTO, until it is properly debated in the 104th Congress. This is a set-up. It is a set-up to get you and the Republican Party to lose and to lose big 1 year
from now. DON’T TAKE THE BAIT! It’s not enough for you not to vote for it but you must convince and work on getting your colleagues to do likewise. We have until July 1995 to pass this treaty.
Why am I asking you to do this? Because, Citizens For A Better America is a national grassroots independent political committee founded in October 1992 dedicated to preserving the Constitution and the Republic. CBA can take an active role in opposing
or supporting candidates, which non-profit organizations that produce only scorecards cannot do. We are gaining membership as a result of our opposition to GATT/WTO as we never have from all over the nation. We have told our people that we will support
candidates against YOU if you vote for GATT/WTO in both the primary and general elections and we will begin the campaign the day after YOUR vote. For those that know what GATT/WTO will do and are absolutely furious about it, and we are seeing people step
forward in the last 3 weeks with voluntary time and money like never before in our 2 year history and my personal 4 years as a candidate for Congress. If you think that the American public is tenative about this, I respectfully and strongly disagree with
Americans are concerned about, and would like to hear more debate on:
a. The World Trade Organization (WTO), which some have described as a ‘World Government of Trade’, which was added in a 14 page charter to the 22,000 page GATT Agreement.
b. Section 801 which gives a subsidy worth over $2 billion to the Washington Post, the Atlanta Constitution and a consortium of other companies who supported Clinton’s candidacy and GATT/WTO.
c. Section 745 which authorizes the U.S. Treasury to eliminate the guaranteed minimum interest rate paid on U.S. Savings Bonds held by many American citizens.
d. The portions of Sections 501-534 that make basic changes in U.S. patent laws.
e. Section 742 requiring every newborn baby to get an IRS Taxpayer Identification Number at birth.
f. Section 766 which makes changes to U.S. pension laws."
g. The July 6, 1994 letter to President Clinton from Michael Carpenter, Attorney General of the State of Maine, that has been co-signed by 42 other state Attorney Generals, stating that as defenders of state laws, State Attorneys General have a
particularly keen interest in state sovereignty (political independence) and requesting a summit with the White House.
h. The U.S. Treasury Department September 24, 1994 fact sheet which states that delaying implementation of GATT/WTO by six months would cost the world (not the U.S.A.) the loss of $90 billion in lowered tariffs which would be realized during that time
period under GATT.
