WANT TO HELP KILL OUR TROOPS OR DESTROY OUR ENVIRONMENT? - THEN BUY A DELL COMPUTER

If you want to financially support the politicians who are determined to prolong this immoral and illegal war in Iraq, destroy the environment, and defile our Constitution then buy a brand new Dell computer.

Michael Dell contributes large sums of your money to George Bush and many other republican hoodlums. Purchasing a computer from Michael Dell will help put more U.S. troops in harms way thereby causing more deaths.

Here's just a few of the criminals Dell gives your money to:

Congressman Dennis Hastert (R) IL - Recommended that New Orleans be bulldozed. Made a $2 million profit on the sale of land several miles away from a highway project called the Prairie Parkway for which he secured $207 million in federal funds. In 2004, Rep. Hastert established a trust through which he and his business partners purchased 69 acres of land for $340,000, which provided road access to his farm that had been landlocked. In 2005, Rep. Hastert transferred this land from his farm to the trust. Then, during House and Senate negotiations over the highway authorization bill, Rep. Hastert added $152 million to help build a highway project and $55 million for an interchange several miles from his property. Four months after the legislation was signed, the trust sold Rep. Hastert’s parcels for nearly $5 million to a real estate development firm. By earmarking money to improve the value of his land, Rep. Hastert violated House rules prohibiting taking official action for the prospect of personal gain.


Senator Orrin Hatch (R) UT - who suggested that people who download copyrighted materials from the Internet should have their computers automatically destroyed.

Congressman Tom Delay (R) TX - Indicted by a Texas grand jury on charges of criminally conspiring with two political associates to inject illegal corporate contributions into 2002 state elections that helped the Republican Party reorder the congressional map in Texas and cement its control of the House in Washington.

Senator Rick Santorum (R) PA - During his freshman term, he started holding hands with the Abramoff lobbying group. Over the years, money has been funneled to Santorum's campaign war chest through various Abramoff back channels.

Representative Pete Sessions (R) TX - In 2001-2002, Rep. Sessions co-signed letters to administration officials to benefit casino clients of Jack Abramoff. In return, within 18 months of sending the letters, Rep. Sessions received a total of $20,500 from Native American tribes associated with Abramoff. In January 2002, Rep. Sessions traveled to Malaysia with two of Mr. Abramoff’s former co-workers. The trip allegedly was sponsored by the Institute of Strategic and International Studies and a Malaysian think tank. Various reports suggest that a Malaysian client secretly paid Mr. Abramoff and Michael Scanlon, an associate of Mr. Abramoff, through a sham think tank that Mr. Scanlon created, the American International Center. The trip violates House rules which prohibit Members from accepting campaign contributions and travel expenses from foreign agents and lobbyists.

Senator George Allen (R) VA - One of George Allen’s old college football teammates said that Allen used to call black people “niggers”.

Representative Lamar Smith (R) TX - voted against cracking down on the oil and gas industries price gouging, who voted for the GOP energy bill that gave billions to oil, gas and nuclear industries. Big oil and gas industries have given Rep. Smith $290,622.

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R) TX - the first U.S. senator from Texas to come under criminal indictment.

Congressman Joe Barton (R) TX - responsible for 2005's Gasoline for America's Security Act that doled out money by the billions to his patrons in the oil business.

Congressman Michael McCaul (R) TX - voted for the Military Commissions Act of 2006 (a.k.a. The Torture Bill).

Congressman Henry Bonilla (R) TX - voted against cracking down on employers who hire illegal immigrants. The U.S. Justice Department investigated Bonilla, who employed an illegal immigrant as a live-in nanny for seven years and failed to pay taxes or Social Security on his employee's wages.

Representative James Sensenbrenner (R) WI - Over 500,000 people filled the streets of downtown Los Angeles to march against HR 4437, a bill authored by Republican Rep. James Sensenbrenner (heir to the Kotex fortune) which would turn 11 million undocumented immigrants into felons, punish anyone guilty of providing them assistance, and construct an iron wall between the US and Mexico.

Representative Michael Oxley (R) OH - The primary beneficiary of more than 75 fundraisers held by Freddie Mac lobbyist Mitch Delk that netted more than $3 million according to a document that was divulged during the investigation of Freddie Mac’s campaign finance activities. The Federal Election Commission eventually fined Freddie Mac $3.8 million. 90 percent of the events were hosted by Mitch Delk to benefit Representative Oxley.

Senator Richard Burr (R) NC - supports raising taxes on 3.6 million Americans by blocking Democratic efforts to extend the college tuition tax deduction.
