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 articleyou 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.
