It's time for Patriotic Americans to BOYCOTT the Phone Company

It’s time for Patriotic Americans to BOYCOTT the Phone Company


May 12, 2006 – It’s time America.  It’s time to shrug.  For those of you who have read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, you know exactly what I mean.  For those that have not read the book yet, I highly recommend it.  With the truth about the National Security Agency (NSA) domestic spy program coming full circle today, revealing that BellSouth, AT&T, and Verizon have been turning over all our personal and private phone call and e-mail content, the private conversations of over 200 million Americans, to the NSA so that the spy agency can run every word we speak and type through their computers, and presumably cataloging it for future reference, its time for every American that believes in what our founding fathers fought for 230 years to now fight back and put BellSouth, AT&T, and Verizon out of business.  It’s time to close our accounts. 


Tomorrow I will be canceling my landline with BellSouth and I hope that tens of millions of Americans do the same.  We need to bankrupt BellSouth, AT&T, and Verizon to send a clear message to companies that we do business with that our personal information is a trust that cannot be violated without severe consequences. 


In Atlas Shrugged, the patriotic characters, Hank Rearden, Francisco d’Anconia, and Dagny Taggart were the irate minority that stood against the majority rule mob and the government’s oppressive and socialistic Directive No. 10-289.  The characters refused the weight of the world being pressed down upon them by the plunders, liars, and murders that were the government.  The main characters in the book opted out of the government’s oppression, its collectivism, altruism, statism, and fascism, by refusing to play the government’s game.  The Patriots went on strike against government oppression. Today, Patriots must again take a stand by cutting the government and its co-conspirators, BellSouth, AT&T, and Verizon off from our communications. 


America, right now – and all day tomorrow and the next, close your accounts with BellSouth, AT&T, and Verizon.  Opt out of the government’s spy program!  SHRUG!  We will defeat the NSA domestic spy program co-conspirators by denying them the one thing they cannot do without for very long – our money! 


It’s time to go on strike against the U.S. government and the companies that are aiding and abetting the destruction of out inalienable rights – Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – free from government intrusion, inspection, permission, and oppression. 


SHRUG and pass it on!  America, it’s time.
