Judicial Reform on the Ballot
Regardless of its intent, the Missouri Plan (for judicial selection) has taken power away from the people in the selection of the very judges before whom they might be tried. The change that will be proposed to voters on the 2012 November ballot is a small but important step toward restoring power to the people.
Our Union’s founders devised a new country described by Abe Lincoln as “..conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” For the first time in history it was a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Government answered to the people, not the other way around. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were written to impose and preserve such a government. Please use your vote this November to restore at least a small measure of our original constitutional protections.
