9/12 Movement: "Send Congress A Pink Slip"

Posted: Updated:

The 9/12 movement showed up in large numbers (somewhere between 12 and 80 squillion, I'm told), but Congress, they say, still has not received the memo.

The new site SendCongressAPinkSlip.com wants you to do just that, send them a message that you want less government spending, no public health care option, no cap-and-trade legislation, and generally less government involvement in the lives of Americans.

And when they say "Send Congress A Pink Slip," it's not a metaphor. You can, for the price of $29.95, send them an actual pink slip.

From the WorldNetDaily Superstore:

The "pink slip" each official will get is a reminder that they work for the taxpayers. Each is individually printed with the sender's contact information under the closing salutation "Signed, Your Employer:".
The warning lists four key issues that are deemed unacceptable to program participants:
  • government health care
  • cap and trade
  • "hate crimes"
  • any more spending

"If you vote for any of these, your real pink slip will be issued in the next election," it warns.

Here's what it looks like:

Agree or disagree? Should we vote them all out and start over?
