The Big Picture

Words of wisdom from a diarist at DailyKos about why this "filibuster" issue is so important.  I've edited this down so go read the entire piece.

The real issue isn't abortion or gay marriage or religious nuts controlling the Republican Party.  And we better pull our heads out of our behinds and get the big picture or we risk losing a lot more than just the filibuster fight.

The battle over judges is about MONEY.  Greed.  Exploitive capitalism.  What all battles are over with the Cheneys and Roves and DeLays of the world. 

Rove and Cheney don't care about abortion.  And, I suspect, they don't care about the religious right, either, except as these zealots serve to further their own Rovian Republican goals. 

And those goals invariably revolve around doing favors for their corporate friends. That's what this filibuster fight is all about.  It is what every fight with the current regime is all about.

Rove and Cheney want to stack the courts with pro-corporatist judges.  Period.


That's our Big Picture.  The stiffing of the average Joe.  Because it applies to every issue, not just the filibuster or the inane non-issues of abortion and gay marriage. 

And that story is not about the religious right.  It's about you and you and you and you and you and me and everyone else not in the top 1% of income earners in this nation.

Priscilla Owens is one of the worst pro-corporate judges ever.  Karl Rove has been mentoring her for over a decade.
