The foundational principles of our Constitutional Republic:

Our Rights are unalienable and come from God;
The purpose of civil government is to protect our God-given Rights;

Policing for Profit

—Richard A. Epstein, University of Chicago Law School By Marian R. Williams, Ph.D. Jefferson E. March 2010 Civil forfeiture laws represent one of the most serious assaults on private property rights in the nation today. Americans are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but civil forfeiture turns that principle on its head. Policing for Profit: The Abuse of Civil Asset Forfeiture chronicles how state and federal laws leave innocent property owners vulnerable to forfeiture abuse and encourage law enforcement to take property to boost their budgets. Federal laws encourage even more civil forfeiture abuse through a loophole called “equitable sharing” that allows law enforcement to circumvent even the limited protections of state laws.

The United States is an Oligarchy" Dominated By The Economic Elite. Most Americans wake up every morning believing that they live in a democracy.

A new study from researchers at Princeton and Northwestern University titled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens starkly contrasts the notion that America provides an equal playing field for every citizen, as it was intended to do at its founding.

Texas inmate must stay in prison, despite conviction being overturned in 1980  Michael Graczyk/AP Jerry Hartfield, pictured here at the visiting area of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison outside Gatesville, remains behind bars despite his murder conviction being overturned in 1980. A Texas inmate with the critical thinking ability of a first-grader has been waiting some 34 years for a new trial. And now he'll wait some more. In a recent ruling, a judge decided that Jerry Hartfield's constitutional right to a speedy trial had not been violated — despite being imprisoned since 1980 on a murder conviction that had been overturned — because, in essence, Hartfield did not ask for a new trial.
