Aging, now 90, U. S. Senator Robert Byrd is one of this nation's most outspoken defenders of the U. S. Constitution. His position: "I still work every day to move the business of this nation forward, to end this reckless adventure in Iraq, and to protect, preserve and defend the Constitution of the United States against all those who would reshape it to suit partisan agenda."

Protect at all costs:
Nation's Constitution
always under attack;
One aging lawmaker
protects your Rights.

Constitution Day?
If ever this nation
needs slap upside
the head, make it
September 17...



“The Supremes”

Your Bill of Rights?
Tracking its destiny
is my charge.


“The Supremes” are the justices on the United States Supreme Court. A powerful, powerful, powerful gang – 9 homies - 8 men and 1 woman. They, and only they, decide what the Constitution means. They, and only they, decide what the Bill of Rights means.

The meaning is not static. Rather, the meaning changes with the changing makeup of the Court. Hey, Democrat Presidents nominate liberal justices. Republican Presidents nominate conservative justices. That's the way it works. Republican President George W. Bush would never have nominated two liberal justices. Instead, he nominated John Roberts and Sam Alito – two conservative homies. Roberts is Chief Justice – the biggest homie dude in the gang.”

“What's the difference?” you might ask. All the difference in the world. For starters, a conservative Court could eliminate all kinds of advantages that defendants have now. A conservative Court could shift the balance of rights – the balance of power – from the crooks back to law-abiding folks like you and me. Change is the buzz word these days. We are bailing out banks, insurance companies, and auto companies. How about bailing out upstanding citizens?

Let the criminals drown in their own muck.
