Our Founding Fathers wisely gave us a "Republic" based on the Constitution and the Rule of Law. They knew an absolute "democracy" could result in mob rule, majority rule (even if the majority was lawless and prioritized their own self interests), and a takeover by powerful elitists/dictators who would make up their own "laws".
But is our Republic slipping away..... Deep state at the federal level and legislators at every level who ignore our God given rights in favor of more government control?
Our Keynote Speaker will be 24th Judicial District Court Judge Scott Schlegel, a former Jefferson Parish prosecutor who had handled thousands of criminal cases before he was elected to the Court in 2013.
Judge Schlegel has a reputation as a law and order judge and has a special interest in carefully targeted criminal justice reform.
There is a possibility that Judge Schlegel will run for the LA State Supreme Court in October..... another reason to come meet him.
