Idaho J.A.I.L.ers to Barnstorm State in
Judicial accountability advocates
must secure 43,685 petition signatures by May to get J.A.I.L.4Judges on the
ballot for elections next November
For those who have been forced to defend their
criminal or statutory innocence in the courts of our land, there is no doubt
that justice is the least important component of the litigation equation. Modern
day courts are merely the battlefield whereupon people with uncalloused hands
dressed in suits conspire to steal the children, the businesses, the personal
and real property and freedom that working-class people have worked their entire
lives to accumulate and/or preserve. In all legal matters, your own attorney is
not necessarily your friend and your opposing attorney is always your
enemy. In civil matters, the judge facilitates the transfer of wealth of
one party to another. If the matter is criminal, the judge facilitates the
state's intention to turn as many free Americans into incarcerated slaves as is
possible. The United States has more people in prison per capita than any
country in the world and, according to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics,
Idaho has the fastest rising prison population in the nation.
Imagine every municipal, state, and federal court in
the nation open eight hours per day, five days per week. Imagine the millions of
statutes that people have little choice but to violate (intentionally or
otherwise); the 2,000,000 licensed attorneys arguing statutory violations in
court and lobbying for the passage of more statutes in the legislatures of the
land. Imagine the number of criminal convictions handed down every day and
the cost of warehousing 2,000,000 Americans in the nation's prisons and jails.
Imagine the thousands of estates that wind up in probate courts that claim up to
60 percent of the assets in dispute for the state. Imagine the bureaucracy that
must be erected to handle the sheer volume of legal paperwork and the collection
of agency-initiated court-mandated fines. Now try to think of an American
industry that is bigger than the justice industry.
In life, all pots of money are vulnerable to the
schemes of greedy, unscrupulous people. No industry, however holy, is off limits
to the aforementioned people. In order to feed itself, the justice industry has
given its officers almost total immunity for the actions of its officers.
Bureaucrats are seldom held accountable for using their official capacity to
injure people; attorneys are seldom held accountable for unethical professional
conduct; and judges have given themselves near total immunity when they allow
their courts to be used as a place where provably innocent people are ruined at
the pleasure of others.
Impartial justice is the cornerstone of our
Constitutional Republic. Without it, those of means or those with the favor of
the court are allowed to plunder those of lesser means or lesser
Judges must be held accountable for their actions. They
have proven that they cannot be trusted to make themselves answerable to the
law. The legislature has proven it will not demand that judges be held
accountable for their actions. Attorneys, most of whom aspire to become judges,
will not demand judicial accountability. That leaves you, me, and our friends
Accountability must be restored to our justice system.
Judicial accountability is the logical place to begin. If impartial justice is
the cornerstone of our Republic, and the cornerstone has crumbled, what then
becomes of the Republic? More specifically, if the people are plundered to the
point that they have nothing left to take (a time that is quickly approaching),
what, then, will become of the Republic?
Tentative J.A.I.L. Tour

J.A.I.L. needs to gather nearly 50,000 valid signatures to get Judicial

it? J.A.I.L. needs your support to get on the ballot. Contact payvedway@... (208) 773-6274
Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch justice fade from every courtroom
Benchsitter people look on in lament
Millions of mis-used tax dollars spent
While judge and prosecutor convict him as
Lonely man cries for justice and has none
A mother watches them handcuff her son
The system is locking up all of our young
Cold hearted jailer [small "j"] that rules the
Removing the daylight from our sight
The walls are gray and black as night
But we decide who is free
and who should be inside.
