    Given our great accomplishment on reaching number one show suggestion, we have started a Facebook page to help get the Judges attention.

    If you have a facebook login, please contribute to the discussion. Personal stories always welcome, as well as links/quotes to FDA errors/misstatements. Please keep the pressure up. This is another chance to shine the light on these blood suckers so maybe they will have to rethink their stance. (fingers crossed)

    FACEBOOK LINK FDA VS ECIG


    Also feel free to email the judge directly at FreedomWatch@foxbusiness.com

    Suggest FDA vs ECIG for subject line

    Oh yeah for the Tweeters among us there is a FreedomWatch Twitter Link as well. IF you are a professional tweeter and have/make a better link for using Twitter to get our message out, feel free to post it.

    I was a bit melodramatic in my post but I think I got my point across. :) I'm Dave, comment # 19.

    Passionate advocacy is always appreciated. Of course we need to use our indoor voices if we want to be heard. Save the outside voice for the picket line outside the court room or the FDA headquarters.

    Can just see it now. A few hundred vapers handcuffed to each other (PV's in hand) having a vape in at their main office, wish we could get as many folks stirred up as Glenn Beck did. But getting the govt to pay attention to the little guy is like asking people walking down the street to not step on the cracks. They might when you first ask, but will quickly forget about it and find more important things to worry about.

    P.S. Saw nothing wrong with your comment. Simple direct too the point, with a hint of flourish at the end. Not bad, every comment counts.

    I don't get passionate about much but this is something that I'd get militant over. For better or worse I think we may eventually need to raise a ruckus. I'm not talking burning tobacco fields but stuff like handing out pamphlets about fda approved poisons, holding up pictures of cancer infested lungs, stuff like that. The squeaky wheel gets the grease and we could stand to be squeakier without looking like loons.

    We're preaching to the choir here but those with the ability should start hitting places like youtube with testimonial vids about how vaping saved their life and the like.

    Yeah trying real hard to not join a militia group, mainly because all my cash is tied up in PV's at the moment. There are many skeletons in the FDA's closet to pull out for public display, problem is most people are more worried about the FDA making sure they can have their eggs over easy than us being able to vape.

    Passion is our greatest tool and our greatest weakness. Just look at the number of viewers on the campaigning, etc threads. It's tough to stay active in the fight while continuing to explore the real world and the wonderful world of vaping. Get too riled up and you are out of gas when the real fight comes up. FDA will just wait till the fever pitch subsides and then strike when we think they are finally giving up. This day of action thread seems to be a good compromise to pull things up from the depths of ECF so people can see what actions they can take.

    Even as active as I've tried to be pushing for an airing on Freedomwatch, I still have a lot of snail mail correspondence to gather up and send to my congressman. Still working on the perfect FOIA request to put with it. Something like getting the names of the idiots who put out the propaganda that the world is using to ban ecigs in a dozen or so countries (pending FDA action or based on FDA's findings). Basically want to make sure we have the names of the people who need to be fired at the FDA over this vindeta. Wonder what would happen if every congressman got a letter from even a handful of people clamoring for specific heads to roll.

    But again it's all a matter of time and energy. They hold the high ground since they are using our tax dollars against us. They can fight us till they retire or actually go to work for BP instead of double dipping. Trying to pick my fights so to speak. Freedom Watch seemed an easy way to get started while I fumble around trying to get some action out of my congressman. This political BS can make you want to pull your hair out and if our grievance wasnt a perfect example of where our govt officials have lost their minds I dont think we'd even have a chance of getting action. But since this is just another example of overreach, a nice bright spotlight might just fry the blood suckers since everyone is on the chopping block in Nov. OF course someone's got to listen and be willing to take some action and we'll have to make sure we stay on top of them or they'll..............man I'm already getting tired.

    Passion will prevail in the end, just a little too early to start reloading ammo to fight off the revenuers. At least we have one ray of hope, since they cant actually win on the merits in court, they are vulnerable to political pressure, just how to get that pressure is still up in the air. But since there is a NJ democrat senator pushing them to ban them, we might be able to interest a rep or two to push back just for grins (hopefully they'll see the logic of our plea, but at this point I'll consider the enemy of my enemy my bestest buddy)

    Is there a like to click on. It would be nice so that it would show up on our pages. After all, is there anyone on earth who doesn't smoke or know someone that does? We might gain more support amoung the non-smokers/non-vapers if they were more aware of what was going on.

    Since it is part of a discussion, about the only thing you can do is to post a link to that page, and put a statement of what it is about in your comments... and look for other groups on Facebook, too...

    Here is one, but I had trouble posting the FB link:

    CASAA | The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association
