"Houston...We've Got A Problem"

"Houston...We've Got A Problem"

"Providing equal justice for poor and rich, weak and powerful alike, is an age old problem. (Citing Leviticus c. 19 v. 15) People have never ceased to hope and strive to move closer to that goal. This hope, at least in part, brought about in 1215 the royal concessions of Magna Carta. "No free man shall be taken, nor imprisoned, nor dispossessed of his property, nor put out of the protection of the laws, nor exiled, nor anywise destroyed, but by the law of the land.' In this tradition, our own constitutional guaranties of due process and equal protection allow no invidious discriminations between persons and different groups of persons."
America's Founders understood clearly that private property is the foundation not only of prosperity but of freedom itself. Thus, through the common law, state law, and the Constitution they protected property rights - the rights of people to freely acquire, use, and dispose of property. However, Our Constitution is only as good a restraint upon those who would trample over it as those in whose hands it is entrusted for respect, honor and enforcement.


As recent news headlines have enlightened us all, it is obvious that veterans are not getting the advocacy that they most certainly earned. Property Rights are the most fundamental of our rights guaranteed by our constitution. Our system of laws only works if that singular, basic right is defended to the extremes. As a veteran, I fought to ensure that this right would remain inviolate. Unfortunately, for my wife and for me, it has not! By means of fraud and judicial corruption, our property was illegally taken from us. We need the special advocacy that only veteran's organizations can fully understand and muster for our veterans. When one of our numbers are violated by our justice system, and the basic principles of property rights have been corrupted, then all of us are so violated. We have too many homeless veterans and we can not stand idly by while our system stands witness when any one of us is fraudulently deprived of their own property.
