From time to time I post a petition, reason being some may not think they work however they do. Rather, they can. I’ve seen it happen on legal levels to more minor levels. So please, sign and share. Posting from email received; to sign takes literally 5 seconds if you are a slow typist. I don’t care if you like President Obama or not. If you’re out there toting your patriotic crap, you should respect the process that currently is being denied.
If you are a normal, good person; you should just want the right thing especially under an administration as scary and dangerous as this.
Our racist, misogynistic,fascist president has nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat – the same seat Senate Republicans stole from President Barack Obama.
Trump promised to nominate someone ready to follow in Scalia’s extremist footsteps and he’s delivered on that promise. Gorsuch’s extreme record could guarantee another generation under a conservative Supreme Court that wages war on women, workers, poor people, voting rights and the environment while giving unprecedented power to corporations and religious extremists.
Progressive champion Sen. Jeff Merkley has promised to use the filibuster to force Senate Republicans to get 60 votes to confirm Gorsuch. We need to make sure Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Schumer and every other Senate Democrat stand with Sen. Merkley and use their power to stand up for women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, Muslims, people of color, workers, the environment and the bedrock principles of our democracy.
Tell Leader Schumer and all Senate Democrats: Block any Supreme Court nominee who won’t stand up for progressive values and the people most threatened by Trump’s dangerous agenda.
