A new campaign by Downsize DC is encouraging people to demand sanity in the war on terror. Terror is the main weapon of terrorists… as such, the best thing we as Americans can do is to refuse to be terrified. Politicians and pundits do us no favors with their terrible stories of what might happen, in fact their actions help those we are supposedly fighting.
They encourage us to send the following message to politicians, and the media:
I am not afraid of terrorism, and I want you to stop being afraid on my behalf. Please start scaling back the official government war on terror. Please replace it with a smaller, more focused anti-terrorist police effort in keeping with the rule of law. Please stop overreacting. I understand that it will not be possible to stop all terrorist acts. I accept that. I am not afraid.
