Why America’s Judges Should Be Chosen By Citizen Juries

Judges should not be chosen by popular vote, nor by politicians. Both approaches are undemocratic and deeply flawed, perhaps even absurd, despite the fact that the former is in widespread use at the state level, and the latter has always been used at the federal level (in the form of appointment by the President and confirmation by the Senate). A far better option is for judges to be chosen by juries drawn from the public by random selection.

Want to Stop Gun Violence? End The War On Drugs

By Jay Stooksberry

Every December 5th, American beer, wine, and spirit enthusiasts celebrate Repeal Day. It was on this day in 1933 that the United States officially passed the 21st Amendment, effectively ending the failed “noble experiment” known as Prohibition. This was not only a good day for liberty and libations; it also marked the end of a violent era in American history.

The transport and sale of illicit booze became a prolific criminal enterprise backed by well-armed, violent gangs. The result: a homicide rate in the United States that steadily climbed between 1920 and 1933. In addition, the rise of “victimless crimes”—namely, consumption or possession of alcohol—added to the already overburdened judicial system. Furthermore, alcohol consumption—what Prohibition laws sought to minimize—actually increased nearly 70 percent.

To call Prohibition a failure would be an understatement.

This time we call it the “War on Drugs,” and its impact is even more deadly...

Three essential US stands: It's NOT ‘president’ upon ‘election’ after ‘independent debate,’ but ‘rogue state dictator’ upon ‘election fraud’ after ‘bullshit propaganda.’ Don't vote for evil; demand arrests of evil

“It is more correct to say that Truth is God than to say God is truth. ...we must speak the Truth.” ~ Gandhi on Truth (and here, pg. 20)

"One thing we have endeavoured to observe most scrupulously, namely, never to depart from the strictest facts and, in dealing with the difficult questions that have arisen during the year, we hope that we have used the utmost moderation possible under the circumstances. Our duty is very simple and plain.... Facts we would always place before our readers, whether they are palatable or not, and it is by placing them constantly before the public in their nakedness that the misunderstanding… can be removed." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi, Indian Opinion (1 October 1903)

The US does not have:

a president
chosen by election
after independent debates.
What the US has is:

a rogue state dictator
chosen by election fraud
after bullshit propaganda.

A Nonviolent Strategy to End War

There is a long history of anti-war and peace activism. Much of this activism has focused on ending a particular war. Some of this activism has been directed at ending a particular aspect of war, such as the use of a type of weapon. Some of it has aimed to prevent a type of war, such as 'aggressive war' or nuclear war. For those activists who regard war as the scourge of human existence, however, 'the holy grail' has always been much deeper: to end war.
