approaches the end of its 16th year, proud of all its accomplishments and yet frustrated at all that still has to be done. Remembering our goal “Open accountability of the most corrupt profession in America--- the legal profession”. It’s hard to believe even our own members still vote for lawyers whose goal it is to give more power to lawyers. Very few politicians ever spoke of “ Legal Reform”. Instead of praise for those who did, many of our friends denigrate them for all their other misgivings. Take a moment to reflect on our goals-Legal Reform . Set your priorities! Do you want more lawyers controlling your life and all branches of government? What if all branches of government were controlled by one religious, ethnic, or other group? What would you do? Freedom is not free! Please help us continue that goal.
