AMERICANS FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT FOUNDATION

I recently received the following threatening letter from this right wing group which obviously does not believe in Freedom of Speech. I suspect many of you may also have received it. Do not be intimidated. We must fight on.

AMERICANS FOR
LIMITED GOVERNMENT
FOUNDATION
www.GETLIBERTY.ORG

Recently a new left-wing organization announced that it
would be targeting donors to conservative, free—market
organizations. The major press announcement stated that the

organization intended to engage in such activities as "public
exposure," having "watchdog groups digging through the lives" of
these individuals, and "possible legal trouble."


As someone who has been put through that abuse over the
years, I can tell you from first-hand experience that it is not
fun and not something to take lightly. I have supported groups
and efforts that I believe will push back against the radical I
agenda of the Left. And, I have paid the price for it, in
attacks, slurs and threats.


As a donor to one or more of these organizations and
efforts, you have been able to engage in these activities
without notice, operating in relative obscurity. I am writing
to inform you that this will no longer be the case.


Your name has been put in our database. We are monitoring
all reports of a wide variety of leftist organizations. As your
name appears in subsequent reports, it is our intent to
publicize your involvement in your local community. Should any I
of these organizations be found to be engaged in illegal or
questionable activity, it is our intent to publicize your
involvement with those activities. You should know that
instances of coordinated voter fraud are surfacing all across
America and investigations into possible criminal coordination
are underway.


For your review, I have enclosed a memorandum from our legal counsel.

Sincerely,
Howard Rich
Chairman

Any one who has received this despicable letter should post it on their blog or post a comment on this fascist organizations' web site.

I just googled "Americans for Limited Government Foundation" and came across your site. It IS a threatening letter and pretty chicken shit, too. I mean, they don't even say what "left wing organization" I have supposedly backed to get into their database. I am really wondering what in the heck they are trying to prove.

My wife and I received the letter in a UPS "EXPEDITED MAIL" Envelope -- along with a letter from the organization's law firm. There must be more we can do to bring this misconduct to public attention (and the organization's embarassment).

I have emailed the letter to Daily Koz, Americablog,Taegan Goddard and Thom Hartmann. I suggest you do the same. Also forward to moveon.org If Rich were a lawyer we could flie a complaint against him but he is not. I would also forward to Keith Olbermann.

I got three separate letters from them, and I'm really basically just a little old lady. Take heart. They must be really desperate. If you want to do something a little more proactive, notify the organizations that you support, and your local newspaper.
