My fellow Americans and Arizonians our founding fathers when they wrote our United States Constitution they tried
the make it fair and wrote it to limit the powers of Government and to have checks and balances. Because they knew that if
any branch of government gained too much power that it would become a Dictator of the people as with the Kings. Our government
should be of the people, by the people, and for the people as is stated in the Pre-emblem to the US Constitution. It has become
a government of the people, by the Rich, and for the Rich. How has this happen? We the people as stated in of constitution
has fallen a sleep and while we were asleep Lawyers and Judges has taken over our government.
This is how; we have three branches of government, the Legislative, Judicial and Executive. The Executive
and Legislative branches are elected by the people; members of the Judicial Branch are appointed by the President or Governor
and confirmed by the Senate or Senate of each State. The Legislative branch writes the laws and rules of Civil and Criminal
Procedures that govern us. The judiciary (also known as the judicial system or court system) is the system of courts that
interprets and applies the law in the name of the state or Federal Government. These three branches were created to check
and balance each other.
What happens when one of these become to powerful, it become a dictatorship, which no longer is by the people,
of the people and for the people.
This is what has happen to our Judicial and Legislative branch. Judges are Lawyers who are appointed by
the Governor or President. Lawyers are required to join and are govern by the State and US Bar Association. We the people
have elected Lawyers to our Legislatures. Our Legislature has tried to write and continue to write laws and rules that only
a Lawyer can understand. Since all Lawyers are members of a Bar Association and are govern by that Association, when you elect
a lawyer to you Legislature he no longer represents you who elected him, but the Bar Association. He will write laws and rules
to protect the members of his Association. If he does not, he will never become a judge, and he will be black listed. The
Bar Association has now become the Dictator. It now controls the Legislative and the Judicial branch of government. Judges
and lawyers do not answer to the people, but their bar association. They look out for each other and not the people, because
they were not elected by the people.
What can we do? Never elect a Lawyer to your legislature. Demand that your legislature write laws and
rules in plain English. Demand that complaints against Lawyers and judges go before a non-lawyer or judge review board and
not their own bar association. They can not and will not police themselves.
Our government belongs to the people, for the people and by the people, not just for the rich and powerful.

12 Things The Negro Must Do For Himself
Written by a black woman in the 1900's
By Nannie Helen Burroughs
(Circa Early 1900's)
1. The Negro Must Learn To Put First Things First. The First Things Are: Education; Development of Character Traits; A
Trade and Home Ownership.
The Negro puts too much of his earning in clothes, in food, in show and in having what he calls 'a good time.' The Dr.
Kelly Miller said, 'The Negro buys what he WANTS and begs for what he needs.'
2. The Negro Must Stop Expecting God and White Folk To Do For Him What He Can Do For Himself.
It is the 'Divine Plan' that the strong shall help the weak, but even God does not do for man what man can do for himself.
The Negro will have to do exactly what Jesus told the man (in John 5:8) to do--Carry his own load--'Take up your bed and walk.'
3. The Negro Must Keep Himself, His Children And His Home Clean And Make The Surroundings In Which He Lives Comfortable
He must learn to 'run his community up'--not down. We can segregate by law, we integrate only by living. Civilization
is not a matter of race, it is a matter of standards.. Believe it or not--some day, some race is going to outdo the Anglo-Saxon,
completely. It can be the Negro race, if the Negro gets sense enough. Civilization goes up and down that way.
4. The Negro Must Learn To Dress More Appropriately For Work And For Leisure.
Knowing what to wear--how to wear it--when to wear it and where to wear it, are earmarks of common sense, culture and
also an index to character.
5. The Negro Must Make His Religion An Everyday Practice And Not Just A Sunday-Go-To Meeting Emotional Affair.
6. The Negro Must Highly Resolve To Wipe Out Mass Ignorance. The leaders of the race must teach and inspire the masses
to become eager and determined to improve mentally, morally and spiritually, and to meet the basic requirements of good citizenship.
We should initiate an intensive literacy campaign in America , as well as in Africa . Ignorance--is a millstone about the
neck of the race. It is democracy's greatest burden. Social integration is a relationship attained as a result of the cultivation
of kindred social ideals, interests and standards. It is a blending process that requires time, understanding and kindred
purposes to achieve.. Likes alone and not laws can do it.
7. The Negro Must Stop Charging His Failures Up To His 'Color' And To White People's Attitude.
The truth of the matter is that good service and conduct will make senseless race prejudice fade like mist before the
rising sun. God never intended that a man's color shall be anything other than a badge of distinction. It is high time that
all races were earning that fact. The Negro must first QUALIFY for whatever position he wants. Purpose, initiative, ingenuity
and industry are the keys that all men use to get what they want. The Negro will have to do the same. He must make himself
a workman who is too skilled not to be wanted, and too DEPENDABLE not to be on the job, according to promise or plan. He will
never become a vital factor in industry until he learns to put into his work the vitalizing force of initiative, skill and
dependability. He has gone 'RIGHTS' mad and 'DUTY' dumb.
8. The Negro Must Overcome His Bad Job Habits. He must make a brand new reputation for himself in the world of labor.
His bad job habits are absenteeism, funerals to attend, or a little business to look after. The Negro runs an off and on business.
He also has a bad reputation for conduct on the job--such as petty quarreling with other help, incessant loud talking about
nothing; loafing, carelessness, due to lack of job pride; insolence, gum chewing and--too often--liquor drinking. Just plain
bad job habits!
9. He Must Improve His Conduct In Public Places.
Taken as a whole, he is entirely too loud and too ill-mannered. There is much talk about wiping out racial segregation
and also much talk about achieving integration. Segregation is a physical arrangement by which people are separated in various
services. It is definitely up to the Negro to wipe out the apparent justification or excuse for segregation. The only effective
way to do it is to clean up and keep clean. By practice, cleanliness will become a habit and habit becomes character..
10.. The Negro Must Learn How To Operate Business For People--Not For Negro People, Only.
To do business, he will have to remove all typical 'earmarks,' business principles; measure up to accepted standards and
meet stimulating competition, graciously-- in fact, he must learn to welcome competition.
11. The Average So-Called Educated Negro Will Have To Come Down Out Of The Air. He Is Too Inflated Over Nothing. He Needs
An Experience Simila r To The One That Ezekiel Had--(Ezekiel 3:14-19). And He Must Do What Ezekiel Did
Otherwise, through indifference, as to the plight of the masses, the Negro, who thinks that he has escaped, will lose
his own soul. It will do all leaders good to read Hebrews 13:3, and the first Thirty-seven Chapters of Ezekiel. A race transformation
itself through its own leaders and its sensible 'common people.' A race rises on its own wings, or is held down by its own
weight. True leaders are never 'things apart from the people.' They are the masses. They simply got to the front ahead of
them. Their only business at the front is to inspire to masses by hard work and noble example and challenge them to 'Come
on!' Dante stated a fact when he said, 'Show the people the light and they will find the way!' There must arise within the
Negro race a leadership that is not out hunting bargains for itself. A noble example is found in the men and women of the
Negro race, who, in the early days, laid down their lives for the people. Their invaluable contributions have not been appraised
by the 'latter-day leaders.' In many cases, their names would never be recorded, among the unsung heroes of the world, but
for the fact that white friends have written them there.
'Lord, God of Hosts, Be with us yet.'
The Negro of today does not realize that, but, for these exhibits A's, that certainly show the innate possibilities of
members of their own race, white people would not have been moved to make such princely investments in lives and money, as
they have made, for the establishment of schools and for the on-going of the race.
12.. The Negro Must Stop Forgetting His Friends. 'Remember.'
Read Deuteronomy 24:18. Deuteronomy rings the big bell of gratitude. Why? Because an ingrate is an abomination in the
sight of God. God is constantly telling us that 'I the Lord thy God delivered you'--through human instrumentalities. The American
Negro has had and still has friends--in the North and in the South. These friends not only pray, speak, write, influence others,
but make unbelievable, unpublished sacrifices and contributions for the advancement of the race--for their brothers in bonds.
The noblest thing that the Negro can do is to so live and labor that these benefactors will not have given in vain. The Negro
must make his heart warm with gratitude, his lips sweet with thanks and his heart and mind resolute with purpose to justify
the sacrifices and stand on his feet and go forward--'God is no respector of persons. In every nation, he that feareth him
and worketh righteousness is' sure to win out. Get to work! That's the answer to everything t hat hu rts us. We talk to o
much about nothing instead of redeeming the time by working.
In spite of race prejudice, America is brim full of opportunities. Go after them!
And, this was written in the early 1900's! The more things change the more they stay the same.
