Now Is the Time We Fight Back!
Dear Tim,

April 15, 2011 will forever be a dark day for the online poker community. Seemingly out of nowhere the U. S. Department of Justice (DoJ) took from us the ability to play online poker on many of the websites we have grown to trust. While the target of DoJ’s action is on the Internet poker companies and not the player, the poker community is being adversely affected by this prosecution.

These recent developments should be viewed as nothing less than a declaration of war against poker and the people who play the game. It is a clarion call to all poker players to take action. We cannot sit idly by and wait for this issue to resolve itself. We need to let U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder know we are disappointed with his decision to shut down trusted Internet poker sites in the United States and we need to again remind Congress and President Obama that now is the time to pass sensible legislation that licenses and regulates Internet poker in this country.

Today is no day to be a passive poker player. Your right to your personal property has been trampled on and your recreation, and in some cases livelihoods has been jeopardized. We need to fight and seize back what is rightfully ours.
The PPA wants you and every poker player to take action this week. Please go to this specially created to learn what you should do. If every person who loves poker takes a few minutes to take these actions we will make a huge impact. Your support of PPA in these efforts ultimately supports your right to play!

Thank you for your continuing support.

Proud to Play
Senator Alfonse D’Amato

You don't have to become a paying member to join the PPA. If you don't have the $20, join now and you can upgrade later. Let's tell Congress what we should have told them in 2006. Poker is not a game of chance, poker is not illegal. Get regulations acted on NOW!

It's too late to undo what's done. It's not too late to move forward.
