The American democratic system is not always based upon simple majority rule.
There are certain principles that are so important to the nation that the majority has agreed not to interfere in these areas. For instance, the Bill of Rights was passed because concepts such as freedom of religion, speech, equal treatment, and due process of law were deemed so important that, barring a Constitutional Amendment, not even a majority should be allowed to change them.
Rule of law is a principle under which all persons, institutions, and entities are accountable to laws that are:
- Publicly promulgated
- Equally enforced
- Independently adjudicated
Confidence in the rule of law is vital to the functioning of any civil society. When a people no longer have confidence in the rulers and their law then we no longer resemble a free society.
The Laws that are placed upon us are equally placed upon those who create the law. Those who create law have a responsibility to not only craft intelligent Constitutionally based rule, they must also live under that law.
When the law giver does not follow their own rule and it is known by those ruled, well without adjudication the ruler’s behavior become tyrannical in nature. The law maker begins to feel as if they can take privilege for gain at the Peoples expense. Therefore, proper adherence and review of the law is required to ensure the domestic tranquility of any advanced civil society.
The title of law maker is not awarded or given for life in our Republic. The title of law maker is passed from those that we elect, then passing the title to the next elected. When an elected representative of the People is elected to office and wears the title of law maker, they are to do so as a guardian of the Peoples trust.
When that trust Is violated and the title becomes tarnished, the rule of law begins to erode Public confidence.
So, when the Peoples trust is violated with flagrant acts of despotism they must be brought before the same light that the ruled must stand before when they violate the public trust (law).
There are other levels of trust that exist between a people and the government. There is a trust and even certainty of privacy that is well written into our laws. For instance, while an absentee voter role may be used for common political activity within a campaign for the purpose of electioneering, it cannot be used for any public type of disclosure of the voter’s information. This law is codified in our State Statues as well as Federal regulations. It is there as a protection of the People.
The right to vote is foundational in our free society. Violations of that sacred right work to tarnish the confidence in one vote – one voice. Therefore, when they occur, they must be repelled and eliminated.
It is the obligation of every American citizen to shine light on those who breach the Public trust and violate our God given rights. To not do so is to capitulate and bend your knee in submission to tyranny.
A Free People cannot exist in a tyranny.
There are other potential election law violations that occurred in the Village of Indiantown Primary election beyond the Illegal handling and use of the absentee voter list.
Let’s stay there for one quick second though. A convicted wife beater and child abuser as well as accused rapist was brought into our community and paid to levy innuendo and rumor for the purpose of influencing the outcome of the election. That fact in and of itself is enough to warrant asking, by whom?
Who paid this dirtball to wage a disinformation war against Guy Parker in the election?
You see, if your elected leaders are even closely involved in this matter then you have to question their ability to make law. If they are unscrupulous enough to stand besides, hire and pay for an attack by a convicted felon, then how will they handle contracts and decisions of the Peoples business?
Further, illegal electioneering by two of the sitting council women was witnessed by many. Fear seems to be a weapon that is scaring people into silence. That still does not change the fact that illegal campaign material telling a person who to vote for was widely disseminated throughout the Village of Indiantown. It was done by two sitting council members. That is Voter intimidation and is a violation of campaign law requirements for handbills.
In Central America and Cuba this technique is widely used by strong arm socialist factions to scare people into voting for their candidates. When presented by a person recognized as powerful, they generally capitulate out of fear. Often times there is then a coordinated effort to take that person to the polling place to cast the party line vote.
Many have witnessed and spoken about this practice that took place in our Village during the last Primary.
Then you have the question of collusion between sitting Council people for the purpose of endorsement to influence the election. Why? Was it a planned agenda they were trying to protect?
A win at any cost effort was mounted and played out in front of all that had their eyes wide open and are awake. It seems that the outcome was the goal not the integrity of the conclusion. To that end let me ask you a question now. If your elected leaders actually acted in a way that was devious and calculated so they could maintain their personal power over your rights, what will you do? Will you watch more closely? Will you ask more questions? Will you make sure the light is not turned off? Will you stand with your neighbor and say “No Longer” ?
It begins with you.

Authors Note: Once the complaint has been received and verified by Tallahassee, protocol mandates that my participation in the public space on this matter will draw silent while the investigation takes place. It is the proper behavior for me to take. The words above will probably be the last for a period of time while the Florida Department of State considers the matter we have placed before them. That does not mean that I will not be actively involved in the process.
