An ill wind is blowing across this country. That wind blows the seeds of destruction and threatens to undermine the system of checks and balances described in the Constitution and the fundamental rights we hold dear. Our Constitution is the rock of our nation and has withstood every challenge for more than 200 years. But today, the Constitution is under attack and needs your help.
Some in the Senate want to bully the American people and force feed us extremist judges. If they don't get their way, they're ready to nuke debate in the Senate and stand the Senate rules on their head by severely restricting the right to filibuster these nominees. They want to change the rules in the middle of the game just because they don't like the score.
We cannot let them do it.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) has launched a new campaign opposed to this unprecedented power grab. We need you to stand with us and say no to this so-called "nuclear option." Join us and say no to court packing schemes.
Once the "nuclear option" is launched, there's no stopping it. At the bottom of the rubble will lie our freedom of speech and our system of checks and balances dead, dead, dead.
It is up to us to spread the word. You must be the new Paul Revere and tell your friends and neighbors about what is happening in the Senate. Tell them that our free speech is under attack. Tell them that our system of checks and balances is under attack. Tell them that the Senate must not be simply a rubber stamp for extremist judges.
Tell them to fight efforts to end the filibuster as we know it by joining our campaign. Tell them there must never be a gag rule for the United States Senate.
Some say we don't need 200 years of American history. According to opponents of the filibuster, 200 years of history is a bore. It's simply passé. Old hat. They say the Constitution is nothing more than stale bread. Opponents of free speech see no need to rely on Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, or Hamilton. We know better.
We won't be muzzled by those who want to silence us. Delay, deliberation, and debate may be a waste of time to some, but it's free speech and the American way to all of us who love our country and our Constitution. The best way to help defend the Constitution is join our campaign against the "nuclear option" today.
We must preserve free speech and the rights of the minority. Join the DSCC today.
