Frankly it is just not worth my time to get an updated picture of a “Nobody” ballot. So, this one from four years ago will have to do.

An Open Letter to Any Judges Running on a “Rule of Law” Ticket
Remember that you are also an elected official, chosen to advocate on behalf of the people.
As such, you have a responsibility to “legislate from the bench” in ALL circumstances where the legislators have overstepped whatever bounds are placed on them by your constitution, and in ALL circumstances where you believe the legislature has acted contrary to the interests of the people.
Some argue that judges must always enforce laws as written.
Well if that’s the case, and your constitution doesn’t allow you to exercise moral obligations, then please do me a favor and abandon any pretense of righteousness; your constitution is trash. This is a moral responsibility to your fellow man.
If on the other hand your constitution does allow this, and you’re still running on a “rule of law” ticket, I can only assume that you’ve completely abandoned your moral compass in favor of blind deference to the very same legislators to whom you’re supposed to be a constitutional counterbalance.
Go fuck yourselves.
Community, Not Government
All of the things which we would look to community for, are predominately provided by government agencies.
- Governments “take care of the poor” so we don’t feel the responsibility to take care of ourselves.
- Governments “protect us” so we don’t responsible for our own protection.
- Governments give us “work” so we don’t need to be productive.
- Governments teach us so that we don’t have to learn.
The divisiveness of winner-take-all politics relies on class warfare, pitting individual members of society against one another, communities against communities, interests against interests. And despite evidence to the contrary (it’s also widely known that Americans are among the most charitable in the world), they have convinced you that your neighbor is your enemy. So is it any wonder why this process destroys and divides rather than strengthens and unites?
We absolutely need more “community,” but this we are going to have to build on our own. Stop looking for government to solve your problems. If you look hard enough, you’ll probably find they’re responsible for them in the first place.
