In 1993, myself & Ray Dittmar
established "Advocates for HONEST, ETHICAL, LEGAL PRACTICE-Texas",
a/k/a "HELP-Texas", as a legal reform group to fight judicial
corruption in the CIVIL District courts of Harris County, Texas
(Houston). We built a membership of about 100
supporters with about 20 as very active warriors. In the short
period of two (2) years, we validated that the entire County
& State judiciary was 100% corrupt. We did all the
things you espouse and much, much more. We published pamphlets
and periodicals describing in intimate detail the who, the how and the
why of the corruption, we held public protests in front of the State
& Federal Courts, Appellate courts, the State Bar offices, The
District attorney office. We gave speeches to various groups and
networked Statewide with other reformers. Finally in the election
of 1996, we targeted the most corrupt judge, waged an election campaign
against her and the voters kicked her off the bench. As far as I
know, to this day, we are the only reform group that can claim the
victory of getting one lousy judge disgraced and kicked off the bench.
The effort it took in human resource was
considerable in terms of donated man hours. We then put together
an instructional package on how anyone, anywhere could duplicate our
efforts with the same results. We titled it "The
Bureaucrat Assault Package". To defray the cost of
the printing and mailing, we advertised it for $ 19.95 in various
"patriot literature". We sold probably 50 packages nationwide,
but never had one report of anyone using the package in an
election. We did receive many complaints from so called
"Patriots" scolding us for asking people to pay for the package,
instead of offering it free to the world.
And there is the problem. Please read
your quote below, "The judicial system is broken......"
Over the years we established that
99.999999999...% of the so called Patriots are what we term as "Mouth
warriors". All mouth and no fight! One group in particular
"Americans for whatever"...epitomizes the "mouth warrior" syndrome more
than any. Nationwide, we have not located any group willing to
join in a pro active, united movement to fight corruption.
These mouth warriors do not and will never
understand that you cannot fight corruption by filing the "best
paperwork" in the Court. Their continuing naivety is truly
amazing. There is no magic bullet, and God is not on their side
despite their ratings to the contrary. The Constitutions have
been reduced to toilet paper, and the culprit behind all of this mayhem
is the STATE BAR OF TEXAS, or any state bar. We put together a
pamphlet describing just how the BAR works, etc. etc. We lobbied
the State Legislature (85% lawyers), and so much more. Over the
15 years since founding of HELP-Texas, one thing did happen.
There are 70,000+ licensed lawyers in
Texas, the BAR unified the mainstream BAR lawyers and judges into a
monolithic, impenetrable fortress and there is the lesson of how to
achieve success and smite down your enemies. It is a numbers and
money game. If you have the body count and the money you
win. Without a sizeable number of real warriors willing to put
their bodies into the war, it simply cannot be done. When giving
speeches to groups, I always started with:
In establishing and promoting a cause,
"If you are 1
protester, you are viewed by the establishment as a nut case."
"If you are 10
protesters, you are viewed as a terrorist group."
"If you are 10,000
protesters, you are accepted as a legitimate organization."
It is all in the numbers, and that is what
no group has been able to capture, hence no chance at reform.
Another book detailing the hows and whys
will join the dozens if not hundreds printed over the years, all read
by the mouth warriors, and nothing will happen as with all the previous
books espousing the cause of reform. Until the so called Patriots
understand nothing can be achieved without body count and dedication in
a unified effort, nothing will change, no reason to.
HELP-Texas tried for 15 years and
failed. If you come up with a method or way to turn the rag
tag mouth warrior army into a real army, let me know and I
assure HELP-Texas will join the war.
Best wishes in your fight.
