FREE FAX to Senators - DON'T Filibuster Alito
01/26/06 | Purrcival

Posted on 01/26/2006 8:52:03 PM PST by Purrcival

Hey, FReepers, wanna have some fun? The DUmmies have posted a link to a site sponsored by People for the American way, to submit FREE faxes to multiple Senators, urging them to filibuster the Alito confirmation. I took advantage of it -- only I changed the subject from "Filibuster Alito" to "DO NOT Filibuster Alito!!", and I deleted their canned message and replaced it with one of my own.

FREE fax, on them!

I started to go over there, but then I thought, but wait, maybe I WANT them to filibuster! I was so torn, I didn't do anything. Heh.

Yeah, seeing Kerry take to the Senate like Quixote hunting down windmills would make for some laughs.

Even FUnnier, Kerry is organizing his filibluster from the Swiss ski slopes.

Samuel Alito’s record is clear.

I understand that the filibuster is not a tool to be used trivially, and should not be used for partisan politics. Alito is not a threat. Stand up for your Senate, stand up for the Constitution, and stand up for we, the people. I ask you NOT to filibuster Samuel Alito’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court.
Sincerely,
Notaleftwing Nutjob

Thank you very much for getting this fax to key senators, urging them to join John Kerry in his effort to filibuster the Alito nomination. Get your friends, family and associates to send this fax now. http://www.SaveTheCourt.org/AlitoFilibuster Time is short. The stakes are high. This is our best, last chance to stop Alito from taking a seat on our Supreme Court.

I don't think they read my message.

You do have a point, there. A filibuster would be highly entertaining in some respects, and it would expose the RATs as the petty obstructionists that they are.

I got the same auto-response to mine. I wonder if anyone bothers to review these things before they are forwarded to the Senators? I can't imagine that they would be able to handle the volume! Heh heh heh...

I think it is a great cause, but I don't see them filibustering. They don't even have the votes.

This is a win/win situation. Either Alito is confirmed or we get to see the nuclear option.

I sent this one:

Vote for Alito
Samuel Alito's judicial temperament is exactly the type our Republic needs to reign in the Judiciary.

Think of the three branches of our government as:
- Paper {Legislature}
- Scissors {Executive}
- Rock {Judicial}

The "Rock" of the judiciary has grown to a giant boulder.
The "Paper" of the Legislature is but a mere Post-It note.

You are in the Legislative branch, grow a pair and give the exceptions clause some exercise!

Our Founding Dada did not design the SCOTUS to be a super legislature.

Done.

Samuel Alito’s record is clear, and there is no threat posed by his nomination:

My apologies - - I leapt before I looked.
I thought the recommendation was to fax GOP Senators, but obviously the recommendation was to fax the rats. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Hee hee. I hope the fax goes through.

I put "Confirm Alito" as the subject line, then wrote:

Samuel Alito’s record is clear (he is a competent, thoughtful jurist), and so is the threat posed by his nomination: The Democrats will continue to feel powerless and impotent. But will flexing the filibuster muscle actually show that the Dems have a spine? Or will it confirm for most Americans that the Dems are hopeless obstructionists and can do nothing but oppose Bush at every step? My guess is the latter.

Senate Democrats treated Judge Alito shamefully during his confirmation hearings (ask Sen. Byrd). They should not bring further scorn upon themselves by filibustering a vote on a jurist of Samuel Alito's caliber.

Here's what I just sent:

DO NOT Fillibuster Alito

If you are opposed to Alito's confirmation, then vote NO on the confirmation. If you are in favor or Alito's confirmation, then vote YES on the confirmation.

Our forefathers fought to the death to create a representative democracy, so the people's votes could be heard. Your job it to vote, yes or no, not pull parlimentary tricks to avoid voting at all, because you are afraid of losing.

If you are unwilling to do your constitutional duty and vote AS THE PEOPLE IN YOUR STATE wish you to vote, then we will vote ourselves - to replace you with someone who takes their oath of office seriously, and won't play partisan games with it.
