    This thread has only been up for 3 /2 hours and it feels as though it is losing momentum.

    Come on Get to posting!!!!

    This is important..

    •  Well we do have to take time out.... (none)
      ...to make phone calls, send faxes, emails, telegrams. Isn't that the point of the thread?
    •  Local phones and faxes (4.00)
      I apologize for the length of this, but this is an emergency!
      I know you are probably overwhelmed, as I am, with what is happening, but one more time, PLEASE call the Democratic senators Monday toll-free at 1-877-851-6437. Tell them you SUPPORT the filibuster!! Word has it that due to overwhelming response to the Alito situation, many Senators have full voicemails or have turned them off due to all the calls!!! So below, I have listed alternate local offices for the Senators we need to focus on this WEEKEND!! Remember, a lot of people's cell phones have free weekends and most have free long distance, so this weekend would be a great time to call and leave a message, but still call on MONDAY, too!!! Kerry is leading the filibuster, but there are several DEMS who need a kick in the hiney to SUPPORT THE FILIBUSTER!! We need to call them, especially--They are:

      In addition, there are two Pro-Choice Republicans who might possibly vote against Alito, tho it is a longshot. STILL TRY!

      Lincoln Chafee (RI) Talk about Alito's narrow view of a woman's right to choose and view of the Commerce Clause and his dissent ruling that Congress did not have the authority to restrict the sale of machine guns.

      And for good measure, Contact Arlen Specter (PA), Chair of the Judiciary, Pro-Choice, and the Republican who immediately called for the congressional hearing into the legality of the President's wiretapping without FISA warrant. If Alito is confirmed, given his view of Unitary Executive Power, these hearings will be moot, because Alito will back President Bush. Refer to this and to a woman's right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term when you call or fax!!

      Remember that if there was EVER a time to filibuster, ALITO is it!! This man is a danger to our country, our constitution, our rights and his placement on the SCOTUS will ensure that Bush will continue to trample over our liberties!! Remind the Democrats that their BASE, the grassroots Dems, demand that they listen to us!!!

      Filibuster Supporters-No need to call for support, but maybe call and THANK them for having a spine!
