WorldNetDaily is reporting that in a mere 6 days, 1.5 millions "pink slips" have been sent to Congress:
Seven days ago, it was just an idea to get the attention of Congress.
Now, the "Send Congress a Pink Slip" campaign is being called an "unprecedented success" and a historic grass-roots lobbying effort.
So far, after just six days, 1.5 million "pink slips" -- individually addressed notices to each member of the House and Senate, complete with sender's name and return address -- are on their way to the Capitol by Fed Ex courier letting every member of Congress know there's discontent back on the home front.
The "pink slips" specifically warn that senders will oppose in the next election any member of Congress who votes for more spending, intrusive legislation that restricts personal freedom and more big government programs.
Let us add: Not only should "pink slip senders" oppose those who vote for more spending, etc., I recommend that these activists seek and support replacement candidates who, as a matter of unshakeable philosophic conviction, political principle, and sacred honor will legislate on the basis of the norms and content -- as written -- of the Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
"The 'pink slips" campaign is a real phenomenon," writes WND editor Joseph Farah at Twitter. He wonders "how long it will take the rest of the media to notice."
My question is this: How about a similar campaign for "the rest of the media" -- that is, for the "collaborationist media," often called the "state-run media" by the likes of Rush Limbaugh?
A slavish press given over to ideological passions needs to see the pink slip. It is guilty of betraying its calling as journalists to report honestly, fairly, and factually. And the American people in record numbers are turning away from propaganda mills formerly knows as news networks.
But the answer is not to replace it with a press given over to any political party. What is needed is a liberated press -- a press emancipated by a commitment to follow the facts and evidence wherever they might lead. If you are a journalist who cannot resist peer pressure or political passions -- or who cannot see or does not respect the difference between reporting and activism -- you are in the wrong business, my friend.
What's curious is that a journalistic commitment to objectivity is consistent with a commitment to the ideals of the Founders -- to a civilizational high point conceived in liberty under a knowable and verifiable God (this is the biblical mentality, by the way), where all human beings are created equal and every human being is endowed by the Creator with "certain unalienable rights."
The worldview that gives a reality-oriented basis for human freedom is also the worldview that gives a basis for fact and objectivity in human reporting (and modern science, by the way). This is no accident. It's part of the informational and incarnational key given by the Creator to help unpack the nobility and wonder of the human being in a salvific resistance against sin, death, decay, and every form of tryanny.
