Dear Senator Feinstein,
I have been a long time supporter but a quiet one; I have never taken the trouble to write you before. Considering where our country is, at this moment in history, and where it appears to be heading, I feel that I must speak out.
In my opinion the greatest threat to our country and our constitution is not from without, but it is from within. The attempts by the President to claim more and more power must be stopped. Unfortunately his nomination of Judge Alito is part of this power grab. If this man is confirmed the civil liberties at the very core of our Constitution and Bill of Rights will be in great peril. The balance of power between the Executive and the Legislative will in all likelihood also be forever altered. They say every generation is presented with great challenges and I can think of no
greater challenge then this one.
The time has come for all Democrats in the Senate to stand up for our country and do their sworn duty to protect and defend the very document that created their jobs, against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.
Benjamin Franklin could just as well have been speaking to the Democratic Party when he said, “If we don't hang together we will surely all hang separately.”
I urge you to answer the call of your country in need, and stand with Senator Kerry to do everything in your power including filibuster to halt this nomination. The American people need to see that the Democrats are willing to stand up for their freedom.
