Arizona Passes Paper Trails!
Arizona just passed a law requiring a paper trail on every voting
machine in time for the November election. Arizona is the 27th state to
require a paper trail, adding to the growing public demand for paper
trails nationwide. The law also requires a random audit to detect any
discrepancies in the vote count.
Dear MoveOn member,
Last week, thousands of us held more than 300 rallies at gas stations
across the country to expose Republican oil-corruption in Washington. It
was a huge success—lots of media coverage, and Republicans got so
worried they were distributing talking points about our events.
Now it's time to take our message on the road. As summer driving season
moves into high gear, we're offering FREE bumper stickers that spread
our message (we'll even take care of the postage).
These stickers will make sure that when people are feeling the pinch of
high gas prices, they'll know that Republicans are the problem. You can
order your sticker (or a 10- or 100-pack) in under a minute at:
The response from MoveOn members so far has been amazing. Just since
Friday, we've given out close to 70,000 stickers—let's see if we can
give out 200,000!
What will putting these stickers on your car do? Marketing experts call
it "counterbranding"—taking a well-known name and giving it a negative
association. Together, we'll remind folks everywhere that the Republican
party is tied to big oil companies—and that's part of the reason that
gas prices are so high and it's why we're not doing anything about
If thousands of us post them (and give some to our friends) we'll be
able to keep our message in front of millions of people on the road all
over the country. Can you help out by ordering a free sticker—or a 10-
or 100-pack to give out to your friends and neighbors?
Thanks for all you do,

P.S. Here's a report on how our National Day of Action went.
Last week's events made clear that Republicans have been caught
"red-handed" taking millions from Big Oil and giving the industry
billions in subsidies. The media coverage from the events has been
great. Below are a few examples of the great stories we're seeing.
"With all the amazing things that America is doing, I have to think
there is a way around this oil fixation," said MoveOn.org volunteer
Ashley Oredsen, a Tempe resident and student at Scottsdale Community
College. Sean Noble, the chief of staff for U.S. Rep. John Shadegg,
R-Ariz., said the congressman is not likely to stop taking such campaign
contributions....."The protests are aiming at members of Congress who
take donations from oil companies, and Republicans receive the most money."
/–The Arizona Republic, June 27, 2006/
"Protesters waved signs and handed out fliers to drivers as they rolled
in to fill up their tanks. 'People realize what we're talking about—the
amount of money that pours into Congress from the oil companies
unfortunately is guiding fuel-efficiency standards, environmental
regulations and things that need to be addressed to get the oil
addiction under control,' said Dan Schwenk, a 54-year-old biotech worker
who drove from Bothell in his hybrid Toyota Prius."
/–Seattle Post Intelligencer, June 29, 2006/
And here is what other MoveOn members are saying:
/"/Nearly everyone we encountered agreed with the point being made—that
there is an obvious conflict of interest when Congress receives over
$142 million from an industry it's supposed to be regulating. I had
expected someone would disagree as this is a pretty Republican area."
/"There was no one best moment, it was all great. It was thrilling to
have people actually show up, and to have more than I expected, to see
how noticeable our event was as they waved their signs, and to get so
much enthusiasm from passing drivers."/
/"Some guy took my leaflet and said, 'We need you. This is what I was
just talking about.'"/
"/Our fourteen year old coordinator did a fabulous job of organizing. I
loved how she was telling some of us veteran activists all the details
of why we were demonstrating, and we were listening."/
