    This is it -- our moment. If we let this time slip by without raising our voices, we're stuck with this shit for a long, long time.

    The voter ID and other voter-suppression bills, if passed, will kick in in January 2016. How conveeeeeeeeenient, no? Even if we sweep the legislature and replace the ALEC legislators in 2014, we'd not be able to overturn those laws by 2014. Sure, we could hope for judicial overturns, but ... that's a gamble.

    Art Pope is our state deputy budget director. I have to tell myself that out loud every day: "Art Pope is our state's deputy budget director." That alone is enough to get me to Raleigh to protest!

    So c'mon over. We'll chant, "Forward together! Not one step back!" on the Bicentennial Mall together and walk over to the General Assembly. You'll tell your kids and grandkids about the time you got yourself arrested for your principles while singing "We shall overcome."
