Has a war begun in America???Posted Saturday, January 28, 2012, at 4:52 AM
A natural born American citizen has been disqualified by a local judge from running for elected office because that person didn't read or speak English well enough to suit the judge. This is NOT fiction!
Does this scare you you? It does me, because it opens the door to other local judges to disqualify other citizens based on what ever law that can be passed.
This link defends the decision. While I admit it has it's points, it glosses over others.
Read and speak English. Sounds very logical doesn't it? Not if your deaf it doesn't, because you need an interpreter. And if your blind, and the documents aren't in brail, you need someone to read them to you. An interpreter if you will. And who decides if the brail and the written documents are exactly the same?
If the state is allowed to micromanage to this extent, how long before this kind of micromanaging becomes national?
What if some other requirement is added that could be used to disqualify YOU from holding office?

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
