Finger on the trigger...

Dear Senators Dole and Burr,

The judicial filibuster is critical to the continued balanced democracy of our country!

Justices of all levels should not be picked and inserted based on partisan choices. They're important enough that a simple majority won't suffice - they need to be balanced enough to achieve a super-majority. I'm deeply, deeply disappointed at the Republican's wranglings to rewrite the rules so they can seat their appealing-to-less-than-the-majority candidates.

To me, it's simple. If a judicial candidate doesn't appeal to the super-majority, then they're not balanced enough to be a judge.



Make your opinion heard while there's still time.
