Three Not Four Branches of Government

The purpose of this site came out of the statements of the President and the Vice President on June, 21 and June 22, 2007. In short Vice President Dick Cheney stated on Thursday June 21, 2007 that he was not a member of the Executive Branch and therefore did not have to follow laws pertaining to the Executive Branch. On Friday the White House released a statement claiming neither the President nor the Vice President were included in an Executive Order, initiated by Bill Clinton and reinstated by George W. Bush despite the lack of anything in writing explicitly stating so.

Recently the press has been stating over and over again that we, the American people, do not care. Paris Hilton holds our interest, not the fate of our country or Constitution. We can of course curse at our televisions or post our rage on blogs across the internet. Unfortunately they are turning a deaf ear to blogs and (lacking supernatural powers) they can not hear us screaming at them from our living rooms.

We have come up with an idea that may get their attention. At first we were going to set up a webpage that would allow everyone to click and sign and the letter posted in the sidebar on the right side of the page would be sent to all the members of the press, but we have a better idea.

It would be very easy for any media outlet to mark the particular email address as spam and ignore us. If, on the other hand, we provide all the email addresses anyone can copy them and easily send out an email to everyone concerned. The more people who do so the more they will get the message that we do indeed care, not (as they would have us believe) about Paris Hilton, but about the fate of the future of our nation.

Right now we are asking for very small donations to get the email list. It has 24,000 addresses and cost $330.00. If you are interested in helping out please contact me at

If you are unable to help financially, please direct people to this website. We are hoping to generate a lot of interest in this project because rather obviously unless we get a lot of people to participate it will not have any affect.

Any suggestions about changes to the proposed letter are welcome. The media will follow the people because that is where the money is. If the media changes its tune and starts taking our Democracy, our Republic and our Constitution seriously so will the Congress and the White House will finally have to bend to the will of the people.

Thank you for your interest in this matter.
