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.

  1. So what do you propose we do about those kids in the inner-city scoohls? We are spending $15,000 to $16,000 a year on each child there and yet the scoohls have been declared as failing scoohls. We owe every child an opportunity to be educated so they can lead successful lives – not just the ones who live in good school districts. If the system is not working, then we should fix it. Like I asked, what do you propose to fix the problem?
