I appreciate all the kind words and support from all of you. I remain absolutely, 100% committed to standing up and defending the fundamental rights of all Americans and most importantly to supporting and defending our most important branch of government, our courts and the judicial branch.
These are very difficult times in this country and I’m afraid things are going to get worse. I also believe that the only real hope any of us have of resolving what’s wrong and turning around this country is through the hard work and passionate dedication of the consumer rights attorneys and advocates who are stepping up and fighting for the rights of every person in this country.
As Americans you should all be so very proud of those good attorneys of the advocates of the press and the writers and bloggers who are out there fighting every day, telling their stories…telling your stories…and spreading the word. These people, especially the attorney, working together all across this country are showing by their commitment, their cooperation and their selfless dedication the very highest aspirational values of the honorable practice of law. They do so often at great personal peril, and attorneys all across this country are working hard to share information that is absolutely essential to confronting the very real wrongs that are occurring all across this country every single day.
United States Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis famously wrote:
“Sunlight is the best of all disinfectants”
This concept has been a critical and absolutely essential foundation of our country from our country’s birth. So important, this right was the embodied in the very First Amendment to the United States Constitution which provides:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
While this First Amendment (and all Amendments) deal primarily with government actors, the line between the mega corporations, the banks and Wall Street and our institutions of government at all levels is being dangerously blended all around us….ominously, virtually every advocate who has dared to speak out has found themselves the target of very real attacks and suppression….
