56. If so, then it's another reason to be LOUD AND CLEAR in getting the
message out to lawmakers, media and the public about this horrible bill. Maybe it would embarrass some into voting against it. We need to make clear just how corrupt this legislation is and what it would lead to: bought elections, 100%.

For myself, I remain unconvinced that McCain's current frame of mind and plans would preclude him from voting for this bill if he thought he could do it unnoticed. I distrust him profoundly.
