The Inherent Right of ALL People to Alter
or Reform Abusive Government.
The Right Upon Which All Other Rights
We Honor South
Randall Beck, Executive
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Dear Mr. Beck:
It is with the utmost gratitude and respect that I
write to you, on behalf of National J.A.I.L., for the First Amendment article
you wrote on April 2nd. It is indeed like a breath of fresh air to read from an
executive editor of a major newspaper the truth about government corruption,
especially the judiciary. By doing that, you are doing a great public service by
reporting truth, and not peddling propaganda to deceive the People.
As I'm sure you know, J.A.I.L. is on the 2006 ballot in
South Dakota, our pioneer state in the nation. It could have started in any
state, since judicial corruption is of concern in all states throughout the
country; and J.A.I.L. carries that concern in every state. Corruption knows no
borders. The People of South Dakota can be proud of the fact that they are the
first in the nation to exercise their inherent right to institute a change in their government to restore the Rule of Law
under the Constitution by having the People hold judges accountable to the
Supreme Law of the Land to which they take an Oath to support and defend.
We are grateful to the State of South Dakota for
officially recognizing this right of the People by providing the means for them
to do so, as follows: "All political power is inherent in the people, and all
free government is founded on their authority, and is instituted for their equal
protection and benefit, and they have the right in lawful and constituted
methods to alter or reform their forms of government in such manner as they may
think proper. And the state of South Dakota is an inseparable part of the
American Union and the Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of
the land." Article VI, §26, South Dakota Constitution.
This inherent right belongs to the People of every state in this
Union, and it is incumbent on all states to follow the example of South Dakota
by respecting it with a similar provision in their state Constitutions. South
Dakota is also the pioneer state in the Union providing the initiative process
to the People for this purpose.
And last, but certainly not least, is the South Dakota
businessman who made this all possible, Bill Stegmeier. The establishment of
J.A.I.L. in any state depends upon someone from a state contacting National
J.A.I.L. and informing us that he or she is interested in getting J.A.I.L. on
the ballot in their state. J.A.I.L. has a presence in all fifty states, and so
it could have been from any state. It just so happened that it was Mr. Stegmeier
of South Dakota who expressed this desire. We instructed him to contact the
South Dakota Secretary of State's Office for information on the requirements to
do so, and he took it from there. The fact that South Dakota is an initiative
state was a major contributing factor. Therefore, Mr. Stegmeier holds the
unequivocal honor of leading this nation, through his state of South Dakota, in
facilitating the means by which the People, starting with South Dakota, are able
to carry out their inherent right of changing their government as they deem
proper according to their Constitution. South Dakota is only a start,
but it is a start to restoring the government that was
intended to be at the founding of this country.
The South Dakota J.A.I.L. campaign is of national
importance because it represents the need of all the People across the country.
Unfortunately there is no initiative process provided for the People to alter or
amend the federal government, even though the Declaration of Independence
admonishes: "[W]hen a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably
the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is
their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new
guards for their future security." While the Declaration,
memorializing the birth of our nation, recognizes the right and duty of the
People to replace a despotic regime with a serving government conforming to
their consent, ironically the Supreme Law of the Land egregiously omits a
provision for the People to effect that inherent right. Only the
People have that right, and they should have been provided by
the serving government the means for them to carry it out with national
government. Since it was not provided as a national means, the People must
depend on each initiative state until further means are provided.
Mr. Beck, we look forward to further reports of the
need for the People of South Dakota to carry out their duty to restore honest
government through an accountable judiciary according to law. For the good of
everyone in South Dakota, and the entire nation, urge them to vote YES on
Amendment E this coming November.
ACIC, National J.A.I.L.
