We need 4 Republican Senators to side with the Democrats. If you have family, friends, or relatives in PA, North Dakota, or South Carolina, we need YOU to get them to call their senator EVERY DAY until Oct 29 (final confirmation vote) using the following script. The senators are Pat Toomey (PA), Kevin Cramer (North Dakota), Tim Scott (So. Carolina). Here's the script: "Hi, my name is _________. I'm a constituent of Senator ___________. My zip code is ___________. I am very angry that Trump is trying to appoint a justice when the Republicans agreed in 2015 that no sitting president should make an appointment in an election year. This process is a sham and hypocritical. I want Senator _________to oppose this process and vote NO on ANY appointment. The next president should make the appointment. Thank you for listening." Of course, your family/friend can add comments like Amy Coney Barrett is against the ACA and will remove our healthcare in the middle of a pandemic!!!! Last, but not least, call Senators Feinstein and Harris of California and urge them to use ALL means (including procedural delays) to oppose any appointment. We need a full court press on this!
We progressives have spent the last couple of years talking about candidates for elected office from U.S. President to San Diego City Council and everything in between. But it is still very important to pay attention to the many propositions we, as voters, will weigh in on on both the state and local levels. We voters have an opportunity to express ourselves on specific policies and we need to take that opportunity seriously. Hillcrest Indivisible members and friends will devote the bulk of our October meeting to discuss those propositions. Our Steering Committee members have researched the details of these measures to help us understand better understand what some of the issues are behind these proposals. And, of course, we will have a final update on the outlook for those candidates we support in this most important of elections in November. Those we elect will be in a position to either help out country recover and get back on track in all areas or will be able to continue driving our country away from democracy and constructive action on our country's serious social justice, environmental, health, and financial challenges. A link to the meeting will be mailed in a few weeks to all HI members. To join Hillcrest Indivisible, go here: http://bit.ly/2nzlUQe
