Stand Up...Speak Out

Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who has repeatedly been a moderate voice on the bench, has announced her retirement. The door Bush and his right wing fundamentalist supporters have been waiting for has come to pass.

July 4th is just a couple of days away. It's time to remember what our country stands for and it's NOT for adding discrimination to the Constitution, backpedaling on personal and individual rights, or demanding a strict interpretation of the Constitution as it stands with no openness to extension of basic civil rights.

Our country stands for freedom, independence, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, equal opportunity, and justice for all. The Supreme Court that Bush and his minions want to force on Americans DO NOT stand for any of these things.

Today is the day we as Americans declare our independence from the tyranny of extremism or do nothing and accept the enslavement of our rights and freedoms.

Very nicely said!

No doubt we'll see a congressional battle now. Unfortunately a right wing controlled congress- but our Dem. Senators and Representatives still must STAND.

Thanks for your efforts, Callie!

Let's hope the Dem. Senators and Representatives do stand this time. It's the most important time for them to stand. I don't know...I feel like this is the turning point for our country. If we don't do it now, we may as well hand it over to extremist right wing.
