The Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, MoveOn.org, George Soros, Michael Moore, and Barbra Streisand wing of the Democrat Party (correction: since they are running the party politics for democrats now, calling it a 'wing' is somewhat a misnomer) will be busy this weekend beating the filibuster drums over the Alito nomination. The desperation in their message is emblematic of how deeply the Democrat party relies on the Judicial branch of government to make laws, totally ignoring the law making body, the Legislative branch.
TODAY, WE MUST SAVE AMERICA
We have just two days to save American Democracy - TODAY and MONDAY.
Through a stunning set of events, John Kerry and Ted Kennedy will lead a filibuster of Sam Alito on Monday.
Senate offices will be closed this weekend, so TODAY WE MUST CALL EVERY DEMOCRATIC SENATOR TO DEMAND SUPPORT FOR THE FILIBUSTER. And we must call them all again MONDAY.
If we lose the cloture vote on Monday at 4:30 p.m., the Senate will vote at 11 a.m. on Tuesday to put Sam Alito on the Supreme Court with Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and John Roberts - where they will vote in lockstep to ensure that the extremist agenda of the radical right is never blocked by any Court.
And what is that agenda? It is no longer a mystery: allowing a President to start illegal wars, murder civilians and journalists, destroy cities, torture prisoners, lock away citizens at home, and wiretap every email and call in the world. Having the Supreme Court choose Presidents, not the voters. Letting corporations crush their workers and poison the planet. And, of course, outlawing all abortions, even at the cost of women's lives.
The hyperbole is their platform of fear. Not one of safety and security. Best advice I have is keep it up, make darn sure the country knows what kind of kooks you really are.
