J.A.I.L. News Journal
(Response by Ron Branson - J.A.I.L. CIC)
There seems to be the need for clarification
regarding J.A.I.L. J.A.I.L. is often accused of being preclusive,
that is, it does not associate with other objectives. Hence, the
below question is directed at J.A.I.L., "Does this mean that J4J cannot
support or do anything that would support a third party?"
These type questions indicate an ignorance Re:
the J.A.I.L. objective. At the heart of J.A.I.L. is the passage
of specific verbiage in an Initiative or Legislation. J.A.I.L.,
like all other legislation is supposed to be, is neither Democrat,
Republican, nor Third Party Legislation. Pick any law currently on the
books, and then tell me whether it is a Republican, Democrat, or
Third Party law. If you can prove your point, then I will show you
a law that is unconstitutional. What political party is "justice?"
associated with? What party are the courts?
My point is, since J.A.I.L. is about bringing
accountability of the judiciary to the People, what political party
holds the monopoly on accountability? If you say, "None," then I
commend you for your honesty. But if I hear you say, "Third
Parties," then I have to question your honesty.
Some fault J.A.I.L. for not "helping" Third
Parties, or their candidates. However, to do so is to limit J.A.I.L. It
overlooks the fact that it is Political Parties that
support Legislation, and not Legislation that supports
Political Parties, which, as I have pointed out, would be
unconstitutional. For instance, what denomination is America? Is it
Protestant? Catholic? or Jewish? What political party is America? Is it
Democrat? Republican? or Third Party?
J.A.I.L. benefits all political parties, and
seeks the support of all political parties. J.A.I.L. is not "Third
Party" Legislation, nor can it be so. I should not be placed in the
position of having to justify why J.A.I.L. cannot endorse political
parties, or lend favoritism to one party over another. Is that so
very hard to understand?
And to those who complain about J.A.I.L.'s
so-called "preclusive" policy, be it known that J.A.I.L. is the best
thing that your party, or anyone else's party, can ever
And to those of you who have no eyes
to see between the lines, and who lack discernment of the
future, I have much more I could tell you, but you are not ready for it
yet. May God open your eyes. God bless you all.

Does this mean that J4J cannot support or do anything that would

STANLEY NOTE: No worries Barbie. I believe in what J.A.I.L.
does. However, I stand by my statements. Just making a
point that had to be made, whether folks like it or not. God
bless you and yours.

This is Barbie writing. "My way or the highway?" Absolutely
If after reading the J.A.I.L. Mission Statement and the Constitution
By-Laws and the many J.A.I.L. News Journals we put out
and you still don't understand why J.A.I.L. must remain independent, on
its own turf-- and why-- why its program is unique, and not
just "one of many," then we don't know what else we can tell you.
You should be able to see, from an objective point of view, why
J.A.I.L. is on its own, and must be. It has nothing to do
with "Ron Branson" or "his way."
We appreciate your distributing some of our articles and your kind
of encouragement we've received from you. We hope you can
understand the uniqueness of J.A.I.L. It is about the
passage of a specific
constitutional amendment (in the initiative states) or specific
legislation (in the legislative states) that would benefit
everyone and should have the
support of everyone. The J.A.I.L. process is all spelled out,
ready to be
implemented by the people when passed.
