Voice: Democrats closing down courts

June 14, 2002

" … or the right of the people … to petition the government for redress of grievances …." First Article, Amendments to the Constitution

We the people have a right to petition government should we feel our rights have been injuriously affected by government. That is, if the courts are open!

Here in Massachusetts, the Democrat-controlled state house has seen fit to cut back the moneys to the courts. If you seek justice in a civil case here, pack a lunch. To "teach the subjects a lesson," the Democrat-controlled legislature packed the courts with toadies and then reduced the moneys to the courts to conduct business. Superior courts aren't even hearing civil cases — they're all jammed into overwhelmed district courts! District courts have had to lay off workers. Citizens are dying before their cases are heard. Justice delayed is …. oh, what is that saying? Petition all you want, ain't no one gonna hear it in Massachusetts.

Like the head of the Democrat Party once said, "Stupid is as stupid does." Or was that Forrest Gump? Then again, is there a difference?
