It would be now, my friends. Never before have we stood on the precipice of destruction - we've never been taken over before. Time is too important to offer yet another editorial on the reasons why...it's all right here... "We told these truths to be self-evident," both the broader truths of our Founding Fathers as well as the truths we have before us today.
We know the truth. And this is why we must not allow Samuel I. Alito to become the key that closes the final door to Democracy. The final loss of the last branch of our government will indelibly mark our future as fascist in the truest sense of the word. Is this what we want? No, I don't believe so. In fact, I know so. I know because WE ARE THE PEOPLE and WE have the power to change things even though the horizon appears dark. But if you stand at the edge of the shore and the boat you are gazing at seems to disappear, has it? No. It is simply out of your view. WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT NOW, TOGETHER AND UNITED BY OUR COMMON HUMANITY AND OUR THIRST, NO, DEMAND FOR THE TRUTH, for what is right, what is holy and what is good.
Judge Alito wants to take our rights away. He wants to give the president "unitary executive" which simply means that the president may act as a lone ranger and we all know what a mad cowboy can do. Alito loves Mr. Corporate - he cares nothing for you and me. He likes being the big guy, stepping on women, strip searching children, dismissing the people's right to be heard and all with the blank stare of a sociopath. WE MUST NOT ALLOW HIM TO TAKE OUR SUPREME COURT AWAY! HE IS AN EXTREMIST!
