As a result of the crescendo of opposing voices raised so far, what we are hearing now is that virtually all Democratic members of the Senate are prepared to vote "No" on the Alito nomination. Many have already made strong statements about how dangerous it would be to allow ANOTHER extreme reactionary on to our Supreme Court. What they must now understand is that a "No" vote not in the form of a filibuster is in fact a "Yes" vote, for that would be the result.

Harry Reid has been quoted as saying that there are 8 Democratic senators still not supporting a filibuster, but has abdicated his leadership role and any responsibility for pressuring them to come on board. It is a "conscience vote" he says.


So we ask each of our individual senators in turn. Is there not one of you who will vote their conscience to START a filibuster? If your putative leader has in fact freed your hands. If you concede that your constituents are strongly opposed to this appointment. If you concede that YOU are opposed to this appointment. And if you recognize that there is nothing that will ACTUALLY stop Alito BUT a filibuster. Then you must call for a filibuster as a matter of conscience.

No one can predict at this moment how a cloture vote would come out. We believe if just one senator would find the courage of conviction to start the process many more would rally to their side, including vast additional numbers of their own constituents who have remained silent so far ONLY because they don't believe you will EVER stand up for them. But whether a filibuster succeeds or not, your constituents will never forgive you, senator, for not even trying.

We are calling on our participants to unite behind one message today.

IS THERE NOT ONE SENATOR WHO WILL EVEN TRY TO STOP ALITO?

Feel free to phrase it any way you like in your own words. In fact, please do so. We need to call them on all their LOCAL district office numbers, and you can get them all at using the instant lookup function at

There have been reports of answering machines at capacity and so on in Washington, but many people are also still getting through on the toll free numbers 888-355-3588, 888-818-6641 and 800-426-8073. Call the local numbers, call the toll-free numbers. Call and call again. Send a real time personal message using the one click form on the page above.

And then you will be able to look back and say that you did absolutely everything you could to save our Supreme Court, our democracy, and our country. If only we can find just one senator who will do as much.
