>       *** CONTACT RALPH NADER! ***
>
> Ralph Nader has announced he is staying "neutral" on the
> issue of involuntary outpatient psychiatric drugging. What??
>
> This isn't good enough... Because Ralph has had long ties with
> the group Public Citizen -- and two physicians associated with
> Public Citizen (Drs. Wolfe & Torrey) both promote forced outpatient
> psychiatric drugging... Ralph needs to distance himself from these
> doctors, and speak out against forced outpatient psychiatric
> drugging. Public Citizen has even started a combined web site
> with Torrey's extremist Treatment Advocacy Center.

>       *** CONTACT TIPPER GORE ***
>
> In the Gore campaign, Tipper Gore has made "mental health" her
> key issue.  You can easily e-mail Tipper Gore today. Al Gore
> is talking a lot about "patients rights" and "taking on the drug
> industry" on the campaign trail. But why haven't Al and Tipper
> endorsed the President's National Council on Disability's Ten Core
> Recommendations about *real* psychiatric rights?
>
> Read the 10 core recommendations from the President's own
> National Council on Disability at

>     *** CONTACT HARRY BROWNE ***
>
> This summer's convention of the Libertarian Party passed a specific
> plank against psychiatric coercion, such as involuntary outpatient
> commitment. Candidate Harry Brown has spoken out against
> these abuses. You can thank him by e-mailing to:
>   info@HarryBrowne2000.org
>
> The Support Coalition member who helped get that plank through
> is Alice Lillie of Nevada. You can thank her at <alicelillie@hotmail.com>.
> Ask Alice about a public interview where Harry Browne denounced
> S 2639, a huge psychiatric bill which is sailing through the Senate.
>
>
>      *** GEORGE BUSH ****
>
> Unfortunately, Texas has a "double whammy." That is, it not only
> has involuntary outpatient commitment, it also is one of six
> US states that has PACT -- Program of Assertive Community
> Treatment. That means anyone in Texas can not only be court ordered
> to take powerful psychiatric drugs against their will while living at
> home, but to enforce that a drug-delivery team can come to their
> home every day if need be to WATCH while they involuntarily take
> their psychiatric drug.
