Green Speak

“Mr. Speaker, a flush is not a flush. The old standard toilet flushed away 3.5 gallons of water, so Congress in its inimitable wisdom passed a new law that said all toilets in America must use only 1.6 gallons of water. Since then, Americans are flushing…like mad, wasting more water than ever, recklessly trying to remove all of that void…. The American people, Mr. Speaker, are a flush away from a major movement…. If Congress can repeal prohibition, Congress can repeal this toilet.”

—Rep. Jim Traficant (D-Ohio), calling for a repeal of low-flow toilet legislation, September 10, 1997.


It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
