Alito Petitions

You Decide!
Bill Frist said this week that he would use the Nukular Option if the Democrats filibuster Judge Alito's nomination.   I think many people have mixed emotions about the nukular option and whether or not the credentials of Alito are going to mean a definate detrimental affect on our rights as citizens.   There are some interesting points to be made at this new site and the links below to other petitions.   I present this site and the other links for you to read and decide.   - fc

Stop Alito's America

President Bush has nominated Samuel Alito, a judge with a long record of judicial extremism, to replace Sandra Day O'Connor, who has been the crucial moderate voice and swing vote on the Supreme Court. If Judge Alito is confirmed, his extreme right-wing ideology would endanger our basic freedoms.

Alito's record shows that he'll side with big business and polluters against workers and our environment. He'll undermine protections of our privacy, civil rights and public safety. Our future is at stake - we could feel the consequences of an Alito Supreme Court for fifty, sixty years or more.
Alito's America: It's Not Our America. Don't let Alito's America become our America

Samuel Alito's America is not my America. I'm opposed to the confirmation of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court. I believe that President Bush should appoint a mainstream judge in the mold of Sandra Day O'Connor.

Judge Alito's record on the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals clearly shows that he subscribes to a far right wing judicial philosophy. I believe that confirming a judge with such extreme ideological views will endanger our long-standing constitutional rights and legal protections.

Judge Alito's record shows: that he holds a very narrow and harmful conception of the role of the federal government in protecting our health and safety; that he believes in restricting a women's right to obtain an abortion; that he finds no constitutional violation in the strip search of a ten-year-old child not covered by a search warrant; and that he regularly sides with big corporations against workers and environmental protections, even when his mainstream colleagues do not.

The advice and consent clause of the Constitution gives the Senate the vital role of asking the hard questions and, where necessary, withholding confirmation. Judge Alito's record is too extreme. That is why I am taking action to oppose Judge Alito's nomination.
