Wake Up Democrats!

Yeah, I know the primaries are done, but sooner or later you're going to get around to paying more attention, right?  Well, the press has written you off, so you might as well not bother.  If the media says you're not going to vote, who are you to prove them wrong?

But just in case you need a little focusing, check this out:

Age of Supreme Court Justices
  • Roberts, 55
  • Scalia, 74
  • Kennedy, 74
  • Thomas, 62
  • Ginsburg, 77
  • Breyer, 72
  • Alito, 60
  • Sotomayor, 56
  • Kagan, 50
If you ever want to see your civil rights again, you'd better make sure that:
  1. There's a Democrat in office as President
  2. There's at least 60 Democratic senators to confirm any nominations
I'm trying to keep this as short and sweet (sweet?) as possible, so if you thought your work was done electing Obama a couple of years ago, think again.  With the unrestricted onslaught of corporate cash flooding the democratic process, it's even harder now than a couple of years ago to keep our freedoms, you know those freedoms that are free?  The ones that we're supposed to enjoy, even if we don't have a lot of money?
How about a little more Golden Rule, and a little less rule of gold?
