In Our Name: A Statement of Justice
A petition in support of the sovereignty and defense of the United States
You have, undoubtedly, heard about the well-funded "anti-war" petition "Not In Our Name" and the ad campaign "Win Without War" paid for by a coterie of celebrity and academic Leftists and their front organizations. They are objecting, ostensibly, to the U.S. campaign against terrorism following the unprecedented attack on our countrymen September 11, 2001. This cadre of self-styled geopolitical mavens (Gloria Steinem, "Hanoi Jane" Fonda, Jesse Jackson, Martin Sheen, Susan Sarandon, Ed Asner, Rabbi Michael Lerner, et al.) is using the current threat from Iraq to do what they do best -- evoke anti-American sentiment and incite anti-American action across our great nation.
Indeed, the publicity of these celebrity campaigns in the Washington Post and New York Times have spawned anti-American and anti-military protests across the nation.
In rebuttal to these Leftists, Patriot Petitions has launched a counter-offensive petition -- "In Our Name: A Statement of Justice" -- calling on all Americans to stand up for the sovereignty of our nation, as well as the right -- and obligation -- of these United States to take the war on terrorism to the shores of terrorist aggressors and their state sponsors. If we don't fight them on their soil, we will surely be fighting them on our soil. While military intervention is certainly not desirable and may not be inevitable on all of the "Axis of Evil" terrorist fronts, if war is all that stands between terrorists and our families, so be it. It is just and necessary to call to account every entity that poses a clear and present danger to the security of the United States and our heritage of liberty, our countrymen and our posterity.
Patriot Petitions invites you to stand and be counted in defense of our national sovereignty by supporting our Commander-in-Chief and military forces in harm's way, defending imminent threats to our homeland. Join fellow Patriots who have signed "In Our Name: A Statement of Justice."

"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams
