Are you angry about the Senate's non-binding resolutions?

Here is an e-mail I received today. I am going to follow through. Will you be with me or with the enemy? They want to let Gen. Petraeus walk into a war zone after an 81-0 vote of confirmation and confidence, and they want to micromanage the war. This is unconstitutional. Our Founders knew this. That is why we only have ONE Commander-in-Chief, not 536! Please join us to prevent ANY non-binding resolution or binding for that matter from receiving cloture. Read this e-mail:

Today and tomorrow will be decisive days in the Senate debate over the Biden/Warner/McCain resolutions. We believe the Senate GOP should refuse cloture on all resolutions, and thus at least provide victory Republicans with clarity as to who deserves their support in the Senate. Please contact the nine Senators below and urge them to oppose all resolutions, and to refuse to vote for cloture (which requires 60 votes) and to aggressively defend the war and the reinforcements in the debate this week. Nine phone calls, nine faxes and nine e-mails may take an hour or two, but we believe that victory in Iraq deserves that effort and much much more.

We also belive that it is crucial that you include details of your past support for GOP candidates. When you email these Senators, please 'CC:' us here if you would like us to post your comments online.

We will be asking to handle the technical side of TheNRSCPledge from here on out. If you would like updates on the effort, please reply to this email with the word 'SUBSCRIBE' in the subject line (if you have not already done so to our previous email). Future updates will come from the server, and we don't want to do that without your permission.

Thank you for getting the message to these senators early on Monday and throughout the day and tomorrow.
