It is right to delay Alito

Get in on this vote now:

Should Alito get an up or down vote?

Regarding whether or not a filibuster is warranted in the atrocious pick of Samuel Alito.
The Democrats must grow a background and scrounge up the 41 votes needed to extend the debate. It is time the debate focused on all the issues facing us, and that Alito is a step in the wrong direction for America's future.

Any Democratic Presidential hopeful (Kerry, Feingold, Clinton, Bayh) must stand up (Kerry already has) and support a filibuster. If they don't, they should forfeit the support of Democrats and Progressives. We need spine if we wish to take back America. We need it now.

On Being an American

I have been finding it amusing (and a bit concerning) that many Americans have rushed to defend Bush's domestic spying program, and many of his questionable actions since September 11th, 2001. "It is for our safety!" "We're at war. We need to have a little less freedom to ensure the safety of the homeland." (Note to that setiment, it was the best argument for a certain party in power in a certain European country in the late 1930's).

Give up freedom for safety. Hmmm.
The only reply to that shameful argument would be to use the words of one of our Founding Fathers.

Back in 1755, Benjamin Franklin said, "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

Enough said. Thanks Ben!

Happy New Year!!

Welcome the year in which we take back the America our Founding Fathers intended for us. Through the power of Democracy, we shall show the world that the United States of America that I know loves freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all mankind. ALL mankind.
