J.A.I.L. Must Start Where It Can
Response to Stacy Ryan, Nebraska JAILer, from Barbie, National J.A.I.L.
 
Dear Stacy:
 
In response to your message below, J.A.I.L. applies to the entire judicial system-- local, state, and federal. There is a Federal J.A.I.L. bill that has been presented to Congress. However, Congress is not responding because the People are held captive to them, since there is no federal initiative process. Perhaps the time will come when the People realize that a federal initiative process is necessary, because the inherent right of the People to alter and reform their government applies to any government-- federal as well as state/local.
 
Under the circumstances, it is considered the best strategy for J.A.I.L. nationally is to get J.A.I.L. passed in the initiative states first, then take whatever measures are necessary to get it passed in the non-initiative states. Hopefully, some of the current non-initiative states will have succeeded in becoming initiative states in the meantime.
 
At some point, the People will have to push for federal judicial accountability. Federal J.A.I.L. should be a constitutional amendment, just like the state measure is. However, the big obstruction to that is the fact that there is no federal initiative process--  Congress is standing in the way of the inherent right of the People to alter or amend federal government. As we have been saying, the Constitution lacks an enforcement provision for the People to maintain its integrity. Such provision should have been a J.A.I.L.-type of process directly written in as part of the text of the Constitution itself. At the very least, a federal initiative process should have been a constitutional provision for the People.
 
In short, the Constitution omits a mechanism by which the People, for whom the Constitution was created in the first place, to be able to orderly and specifically keep their government within constitutional limitations. After years of government being left on its own, we are seeing the results of that lack of an enforcement provision, i.e., the usurpation of power into absolute despotism. The Declaration of Independence states that when such occurs, it is the duty of the People to change government to what it is supposed to be, and to provide new guards for the future. The question is: HOW is that to be done? Those "guards" should have been part of the Constitution to begin with, obviating the necessity of the People to have to change it. Yes, we're now crying over spilt milk which we, the Progeny, are forced to do. The People were left vulnerable to a despotic takeover, and now We, the Progeny, are suffering the consequences of it.
 
Yes, Stacy, J.A.I.L. will "fix" corporate America by at long last providing a means by which the People (now the Progeny) will be able to exercise their inherent right to alter and amend their government as they deem necessary to protect them from its arbitrary actions (the "touchstone" of due process).
The Constitution does not provide for a "corporate America" and the despotism resulting therefrom. J.A.I.L. will hold government, through the judiciary, accountable to the original Constitution. "Corporate America" is a fiction that was developed by Congress without constitutional authority as a result of that gaping hole in the Constitution-- the lack of an enforcement provision for the People to implement.
 
J.A.I.L. will fill that lack to a certain extent. Unfortunately, the People will still be paying the price for that omission by not being able to alter and amend government nationally, as they have the right and duty to do. But right and duty, as law generally, is only as good as its enforceability. We are left with no other peaceful method of amending government than to do so incrementally, first: initiative state by initiative state, then the other states, and finally, federally. It should be the other way around. If the People could amend the U.S. Constitution (the only one that is lawful) by a federal initiative process, that would take care of the states, because the states must follow the Supreme Law of the Land. But that process is blocked because no provision was made.
 
As it stands, Stacy, yes-- we must depend on "local rich people" to "enable J.A.I.L. to get a foothold." The ultimate goal of J.A.I.L. is nationwide reform, as it has to be eventually. However, the People can't hold off in the meantime. We must take action however we can, as SOON as we can. That means we must depend on "local rich people" to get J.A.I.L. started in this country somewhere.
 
That "somewhere" depends on how rich the local people need to be, which in turn depends on how many signatures are required to qualify for the ballot in an initiative state. As a matter of just plain economics, the odds of getting J.A.I.L. started in South Dakota (the initiative state requiring the least number of signatures) is much greater than getting it started in California (the initiative state requiring the greatest number of signatures). So, it isn't a matter of "bringing" California's "trash" to South Dakota as the S.D. Legislature claims, but it's a matter of pure economics. The U.S. Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land in all states, and it must be obeyed by the judiciary in all states. J.A.I.L. must start where it can.

I am just going to comment that J.A.I.L. should stay apolitical. 
It is my understanding that J.A.I.L. isn't applicable to federal judges, correct me if I am wrong. When you start advising I turn off FOX the only channel most Republicans feel is generally objective the effort starts to look political. Local media in my small city can be as corrupt as the mainstream media. J.A.I.L. can't "fix" corporate America, local "rich" people  are the ones who are going to enable J.A.I.L. to get a foothold.  
This type of enthusiasm is better aimed at big business, federal government and your choice of political party.

J.A.I.L. deals with local state government where truly the little people are.  If the goal is nationwide reform I am afraid it will be another 10-15 years before J.A.I.L. succeeds.

Just what are the goals and objectives of J.A.I.L., maybe I am the confused one.  I was of the understanding that J.A.I.L. applies to the county and district levels of the respective state judiciary.

Dear Ron and Barbie:

Thank you for your confidence in appointing me as Jailer-in-Chief of Colorado. I am excited to begin this new phase of life. I look forward to helping raise the consciousness of the citizens of our fine country by helping people realize they have the power to reclaim their political freedoms.

I have not been drawn to J.A.I.L. for Judges because of any personal messy legal issues. My only involvement with the courts was my divorce (which, now that I think about it, included at least one ruling that did not seem to be based on the law as I understand it). However, when I hear about the injustices that others have faced it really makes me mad. The stories just don't stop.

I have this to share with JAILers everywhere:

This country is going nowhere good and it's going there fast. We, you and me, are the only ones that can change that. So few people pay attention to what's going on in this country and the result is that justice is green, corporate welfare is rampant, and our media is becoming a monopoly. Ordinary people have very little recourse at times when our legal system fails to function objectively. Ordinary people can't afford it. 1% of the population of this country controls 32.7% of the wealth (10% of the people control 70% of the wealth)*. Is that the intention of democracy? Of free trade? Of capitalism? No, I say. That's the result of rich people and corporations wanting more than their fair share of control. They will continue to succeed - if no one stops them. They've gained power by buying the judgements, oh, wait, the judges…yes, our judges are bought…

Stay informed. If you think you are getting unbiased information from any of the mainstream newspapers or television stations then you're still asleep. Wake Up! Check out your community radio stations and read your alternative local newspapers. Turn off Fox news, for God's sake.

Margaret Mead once said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Let's GO. Let's be that group of committed citizens. Let's create some change.

Respectfully,
Victoria Bard, Colorado JIC

 P.S. Here's a few more interesting quotes to mull over:

Aesop: We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt: The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.

Noam Chomsky: If you go to one demonstration and then go home, that's something, but the people in power can live with that. What they can't live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, organisations that keep doing things, people that keep learning lessons from the last time and doing it better the next time.

Thomas Jefferson: The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.

(attributed to) Edmund Burke : The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Frederick Douglass: Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.

Plato: An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics.

Albert Einstein: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
