Salt Lake City Drinking Liberally

Promoting democracy in Utah one pint at a time.

Constitutional Vigil

From MoveOn.org:

The president is breaking the law. Momentum is already mounting in Congress for a real, independent investigation into the president’s illegal wiretapping program. But unless Congress knows that citizens are concerned, they’ll shrink from their responsibility to act as a check on the president’s power.

To turn up the pressure on Congress, we’re organizing nationwide “Constitution Vigils” on Wednesday, February 22nd, to bear witness to the president’s lawbreaking.

We’ll get together with other MoveOn members and read the Bill of Rights to remind Congress about what’s at stake.

Thousands of us will gather together to send a strong message to our elected representatives that they won’t be able to ignore–especially since many of them will be home in their districts for the Presidents’ Day holiday. The more of us that participate, the louder our message will be.

Where: Pioneer Park
When: Feb. 22 6:00pm
Who: Hosted by Jess Brown

    random quote:

    "It is precisely because it is fashionable for Americans to know no science, even though they may be well educated otherwise, that they so easily fall prey to nonsense. They thus become part of the armies of the night, the purveyors of nitwittery, the retailers of intellectual junk food, the feeders on mental cardboard, for their ignorance keeps them from distinguishing nectar from sewage."
    Isaac Asimov
