> Hi!
> I just signed MoveOn PAC's emergency petition to
> stop the "nuclear
> option" the far right wing's plan to seize absolute
> power to stack our
> courts -� and I hope you will sign too.
> Starting Monday, the petition will be delivered
> straight to Congress
> every three hours until the final vote, and many of
> our comments will be
> read aloud on the Senate floor.
> Please sign right now at:
> Why is this an emergency?
> This Tuesday, the Senate will vote on Republican
> Leader Bill Frist's
> "nuclear option" to break the rules of the Senate
> and give the
> Republican Party absolute control over appointing
> federal judges.
> For 200 years the minority's right to filibuster has
> kept our courts
> fair, by making sure that federal judges needed to
> get at least some
> support from both sides of the aisle before they
> were given life time
> appointments.
> If Frist eliminates the filibuster, his next step
> would be to force far
> right partisan judges onto the powerful U.S. Courts
> of Appeals. The real
> targets, however, are the four seats on the Supreme
> Court likely to
> become vacant in the next four years.
> With that much power on the Supreme Court, the far
> right could strike
> down decades of progress on labor rights,
> environmental protections,
> reproductive rights, and privacy.
> The "nuclear option" will live or die by a final
> vote, probably on
> Tuesday, and the vote is still way too close to
> call. There are at least
> 6 moderate Republicans still on the fence and only 3
> more votes needed
> to win. If we can get enough of our voices into
> congress and into the
> streets in the next 72 hours, we can still save our
> courts.
> Please take a minute to join me and sign the
> emergency petition today.
> Thanks!
