***DU'ers.... This is the Biggest Thing We've Ever Had to DU.***

Edited on Thu Jan-26-06 05:48 PM by WritingIsMyReligion
This isn't a CNN online poll. This isn't MSNBC. This is our country. OUR country. We cannot afford to worry. We cannot afford to think about credibility, reputation, saving face right now. We have to think about the future, right now.

I am a minor. I am still in high school, and I cannot vote. My generation has enough fall-out from this shithead excuse for an administration to deal with. Do not let Samuel Alito sit on that court. Do not let him rule for the rest of his life. Do not let him roll back one single right of mine. DON'T. If I can contact my senators, so can you.

Get on the phone. Get the e-mails out.

Don't tell me to save for tomorrow. For all you know, tomorrow--or some other time in the very near future--we could all be sitting in jail. Every last one of us.

Today is now. Today is the power. WE are the people. WE are the Americans.

Don't make my generation sit in a cesspool, a country ruined by ignorance, fear, and hate.

Get out and do something.

I am in tears over this, DU. Don't disappoint those of us who never have had the pleasure of voting against these fuckers. I want to be able to vote when I am 18. Don't let this country turn fascist.

DO NOT LET SAMUEL ALITO SIT ON THAT COURT.

Please, DU. PLEASE.

:cry:

:patriot:
