Supreme Court: What You Can Do RIGHT NOW

Or will he nominate a relative moderate, and let the government return to the people's business?

Believe it or not there is much you can do, so use these links to learn, think, talk and most importantly act. Your country depends on you, and I can think of no better way to celebrate the 4th of July weekend than by acting to defend the liberties so many Americans have striven so hard to protect.

  • Sign MoveOn's "Protect Our Rights" petition.

  • Stop by Hunter's thread and make suggestions for potential nominees.
