Announcing Free Republic's MARCH for JUSTICE II, April 7, 2005, Washington, D.C.!!
Free Republic | March 15, 2005 | Kristinn, Jim Robinson

In October 1998, Free Republic marched on Washington demanding the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Thanks to our efforts, Clinton was impeached less than two months later.

Then, as now, our country stood at a Constitutional crossroad. This year we stand at the crossroad of what kind of judiciary we will have: One that is restrained by the Constitution, or one that abridges our rights by making it up as they go along.

President Bush and the Republicans in the Senate are gearing up for a showdown with the Democrats over his judicial nominees. The Democrats have used the filibuster in an unprecedented way to block judicial nominees from getting an up or down vote. Republicans, led by Majority Leader Bill Frist are getting ready to employ the Constitutional option--most likely in mid-April.

A simple majority is needed to implement the Constitutional option. However, even with a 55 vote majority, a victory by the Republicans is in doubt. Democrats, unswayed by their ever-diminishing numbers in the Senate, have threatened to almost totally shut down the Senate if the Republicans succeed.

The Democrats are desperate because the judiciary is their last hope to force their liberal, unconstitutional agenda on the American people. If the filibuster is broken, they know that President Bush will be able to nominate and get confirmed Supreme Court justices in the mold of Scalia and Thomas. If the filibuster holds, we'll get justices like Anthony Kennedy who look to foreign law and opinion to support their unconstitutional rulings.

Therefore, in order to support President Bush's judicial nominees, and to put the Senate and the courts on notice that We the People demand the Constitution be respected and maintained, we will march on Washington on Thursday, April 7, 2005.

We will rally at Upper Senate Park, directly across the Capitol between Constitution Avenue and Union Station, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Immediately after the rally, we will march on the offices of all 100 senators in groups of state citizens to impress upon them the seriousness of our cause.

We will be working to bring other conservative groups in to co-sponsor the rally. Speakers and co-sponsors will be announced as they confirm.

We will need to raise funds for the rally. The estimated cost is $8,000. Capitol Police rules do not allow us to seek donations at the rally, so we will have to raise the funds before. Click here to help out.

Lord willing, I'll be making the trip from California to D.C. for the rally. It's short notice, but this is too important to stand back. Our rights are at stake. Defend them now, or watch a justice like Anthony Kennedy look to foreign law and opinion one day to take away your Second Amendment and other rights.

My line in the sand has been drawn on this issue. I will donate if I can't make it in person.

Thanks Jim for organizing this critical effort.

I'm all in favor of the idea. The only thing that bothers me is that the term "march for justice" has more of a liberal connotation. If we can call the effort by some other name or slogan, I think it will be more clear to more people what this is all about.

Capitol Police rules do not allow us to seek donations at the rally, so we will have to raise the funds before.

The rules must have changed recently because I can recall at least 3 seperate instances where rallies in D.C. by leftist/rat mobs such as MoveOn.org had losers in the crowd passing around red buckets seeking donations to fund their traitouros hate speech.

Regardless, I'll be with you, if not physically, then spiritually and certainly monetarily.

"March for Justice" worked great the first time. Got Clinton impeached. This issue is just as important if not more so than impeaching a corrupt president. These judges have set themselves up to be the sole arbiters of the constitution, and the problem is, they're rewriting or ignoring the constitution as they do so. It's time justice is done! End the obstructionism! End judicial tyranny!!

We the People are the final arbiters!!

That may well be the case. I still think perhaps "March for Justices" or "March for Judges" might get the point across better.

Ziv's point is well-taken. March for Justice could apply to many things, and even could be used for a misguided LIBERAL rally. Could you make it more specific?

March for Honest Judges, for instance? After all, an honest judge knows that legislatures WRITE the laws but judges ENFORCE that law on the parties in any court case. An honest judge would not think or write a decision like Justice Kennedy's in Roper v. Simmons.

We're also hoping we can get delegates from all 50 states to the march. And we should bring the state flags from all states. The flags will help us organize by state for the march on the Senate offices. We want all 100 senators to hear from our people.

Jim, I'm in full agreement with your sentiments. Just the term "March for Justice" sounds like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will be the main speakers. But if you say it was very successful getting the job done the first time, who am I to argue?

How about a line in the dirt? Or the rocks? Or the loam? Or in concrete? Or in clay? Or even in granite? Anything but the line in the sand.

:) HA!

"Democrats, unswayed by their ever-diminishing numbers in the Senate, have threatened to almost totally shut down the Senate if the Republicans succeed."

Good luck with your call to arms, but, personally, I'd like to see them "shut down" the Senate.

Two reasons:
1. I truly believe the public won't buy into the bad Republicans MSM story...simply because of alternative news outlets. Think of the bad publicity.
2. I would LOVE to see the RINO's finally grow some cojones and fight the libs. If they don't, they lose the next congressional elections.

Well, we were thinking of calling it the "Red, White and Blue Revolution!" but thought we might be accused of vigilantism so backed off a bit. LOL

How about the Red Revolution? Nah, on second thought that sounds like we're staging a Marxist rally. I still recommend "March for Judges". LOL

"Jim, I'm in full agreement with your sentiments. Just the term "March for Justice" sounds like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will be the main speakers."

Just so you know...the original FR sponsored "March for Justice" in 1998 was a great success and Representive Bob Barr (who spoke at the rally) said it had much influence on the impeachment of clinton.

This one is justice for the Constitution and for We the People! Our battle cry at the first March for Justice was, "Fire the Liar!" For the March for Justice II it should be, "Down with judicial tyranny!!"

I like the name for the rally and have always liked THAT name for the rally.

March For Justice I, was for me, quite moving. I will NEVER forget the feeling of empowerment and inspiration it gave me and so many others including the House Managers. After all those years as a grassroots conservative, we as a group, finally established a momentum that has continued ever since!

That's kinda the way I felt about it too. It would be great if we could be as successful this time around. And I think we can be if we can get Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Hannity and Rush talking it up for us and hopefully get a few senators on board.
