Judge Roberts Petition

Go to right now!

This will effect the United States for years to come if something isn't done right now to prevent Roberts from becoming the next Chief Justice.

I try to do my best to keep from being a BlaBlahBlah-ist, and it's hard... real hard (mostly because it's fun to rant), but we have to use that ranting as a mechanism for action. Sign the petition to be sent to your Senators and Representatives, or if you're a DC resident like me, send a letter to the editor. Here's what I wrote...
  • The American people have been speaking out against President Bush since before day one of his first term. Granted, it was only half of the voting population, but that number has been growing, particularly after two significant events; Bush has admitted that there were no WMDs in Iraq, and he has admitted "... to the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility." It's not simply liberal bias, Bush has admitted these things, and Republicans are taking notice. People have lost jobs for less and have not caused as many deaths! How can we trust his judgment with anything let alone a Supreme Court nomination? Will Bush admit fault when Judge Roberts makes a decision that negatively affects the American people? He's already done it twice. Is it 'third time's a charm' or 'three strikes, you're out'? Let's not make it to three to find out.
