Alito -- NOT a "Done Deal"

The DC parrots are out in force.

"Squawk! It's over! Done Deal! Squawwwkkkk! Dems failed! Squawk! Inevitable!

They are trying to convince themselves, deny reality.


If you know the fascists are a menace, YOU MUST DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER to make the Alito Filibuster a reality. We have no choice. We must fight. We must open their eyes to the fact that they have no choice either.

It's not about any issue. Nope -- not even abortion. It's not about any legal argument, unless you want to talk about the Bush v. Gore treason. It's not even really about the next election. It's about our own self-esteem/sense of empowerment and whether we can foster any in the near future -- or ever.

Clearly, there is no downside here. This one is black and white.

Prove Their/Our Strength, Conviction, and Courage
Prove Their/Our Weakness, Equivocation, and Cowardice

We/They have no choice This is it. Do or Die.

Alito is emblematic of unlimited executive power. The fight against Alito is our Normandy in the campaign to drive out the Bush regime and the ever-expanding dictatorial powers they claim.

It's simple. The truth is plain for all to see. The Bush syndicate is not "pushing the bounds of executive power," they are not "out of bounds." We must reject their euphemisms. They have committed crimes against our constitutional democracy. Crimes. We need to call them that.

The fascist propagandists are doing what they always do -- burying the truth in manufactured complexity, euphemism, and deceptive "debate".

The process is not new. The most "sophisticated" are the most vulnerable. In D.C. the "professionals" (reporters, analysts, elected officials) are the key recipients and unwitting vehicles of propaganda. With the force of authority, they pass along the outlandish and tortured arguments that the USA is a dictatorship. If they do not stand and fight Alito with everything they've got, they legitimize those tortured arguments.

We CAN open their eyes. Like the child who knew the emperor had no clothes, you dont need to be a constitutional scholar to recognize high crimes and abuse of power.

We are the voice of truth. The Emperor has NO CLOTHES.

They know it. They can see it. Their self-delusion is a house of cards.

Get out there and knock it down!
