QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." —Ronald Reagan (this quote is too good to change)
"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude."—Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816

Attached is a flyer for a proposed plan to
not only get reform on the ballot in November but to also raise significant sums
We are looking for feedback on the feasibility of this plan. We have the
petitions; we will supply collateral material, walk lists, door hangers, etc.
All we need are the grassroots to get this done. Whether or not you agree
with the Six States, the fact is we should have this debate and it is far better
for those funds to be spent on building a grassroots effort instead of having
these funds go to paid signature gatherers.
Both of these initiatives will generate worthwhile debate about the
direction of this state. If we are serious about real reform, not tinkering
around the edges (or rearranging the deck chairs), we need to do this NOW.
As PFAS continues to
examine the more than 131,000 signatures rejected throughout the State, it has
sometimes been difficult to share with you the many obstacles that have been
thrown at us. Part of that difficulty is that we are reluctant to point the
finger at the government employees that are making the examination so
They are just doing their
job. Or are they?
We all know that there were
not 131,000 forged signatures. And we know that one out of five signers were
not rejected simply because they were unregistered. So how did so many
signatures get invalidated?
Some of the throw-outs
appear to be simple mistakes. PFAS volunteers are finding that many signers
that were rejected as unregistered are actually registered voters. We want to
believe that these are errors and not intentional.
But so many of the
signatures have been rejected based on "discretion". Government employees are
allowed to determine whether a signature is the same as the signature on file
from voter or even DMV records. These same employees are analyzing the print in
the address section of the petitions and rejecting signatures that they admit
match perfectly because of questions about the printing.
Employees in the 58
counties (presumably not handwriting experts) have the power to effectively
disenfranchise voters by rejecting their signatures or questioning their
Most of those rejected will
never know that their signature was not counted. Rejected signers are not
notified or given a chance to respond and argue that they actually signed the
But since we were so close
to hitting the necessary number of signatures, PFAS is doing what has rarely
been done. We are actually examining the signatures that have been thrown out
and preparing to challenge in court those that were improperly
We know that this may be
uncomfortable for some of those government employees that are just doing their
job. But at PFAS we are just doing our job also.
Our job right now is to
fight to have every valid signature counted.
More than 131,000 referendum petition signatures
were thrown out by elections officials throughout the State. That was more than
one out of every five. But the law allows me as the proponent of the referendum
to examine these signatures and to challenge them. And I am allowed to
authorize others to help me with that task in the 58 counties.
We knew that his
would be a difficult process.
We even figured
that some employees in each county would take it personally as we search for
mistakes, misapplications of the law or even deliberate rejection of valid
But PFAS did not
expect the hostility and intimidation that we are now receiving.
In some cases,
it has been a challenge just to get past the front door. In one county our
entry was delayed for more than a week as election officials argued (without any
basis) that it was their right to delay the examination for up to three weeks.
They added that once they did allow the examination to begin, they could only
handle two people at a time to review thousands of rejected signatures.
In many counties
we have been allowed to examine the invalidated signatures so long as we do not
touch any document. In one case, staff even tried to enforce their
personal rule that we could not take notes or we had to sign detailed documents
that limited our legal rights. No county yet has agreed to voluntarily allow
PFAS to make the copies that we will need as evidence when these signatures are
challenged in court.
Of course PFAS
is standing up to these bullying tactics. We have a team of attorneys that is
addressing the ever-changing rules and obstacles that are being introduced at
But there is a
level of bullying and intimidation that should not be tolerated. That level may
have been reached yesterday in Sacramento where volunteers were pulled away from
their examination and asked to wait in the lobby for more than three hours
before they finally went home.
The reason they
were pulled away from examining signatures was a sudden change in rules. As
proponent of the referendum, I had provided authorization forms to our
volunteers throughout the State. The form and my signature are copied. While
that was sufficient for entry for several days, now Sacramento had decided that
the signature needed to be "wet ink". While they backed off later, they were
arguing that I either need to be there in person or have hard copy documents
delivered. No FAX. (This was odd since these officials have been accepting and
rejecting petition signatures by comparing these to electronic copies they have
That was a
delaying obstacle, but the next revelation was pure intimidation.
Sacramento election officials offered to give a list of those who were
authorized and unauthorized to one of our volunteers. But first they had to
make a copy for the ACLU. Apparently the ACLU had requested and Sacramento was
giving them the names of each person authorized and not authorized to examine
Put another way,
while elections officials were delaying the right to challenge signatures by
making volunteers sit in a waiting room, there was no delay in delivering the
names of those volunteers to an outside group.
Privacy For All
Students began this fight a little more than six months ago with the simple
notion that forcing boys and girls to share a bathroom was bullying.
Legislators with their sex separate facilities were bullying school children by
forcing them into a situation that compromised the children's privacy and
safety. Now election officials and the ACLU have joined the gang of bullies
that wants to intimidate anybody that objects to their radical social
Thank you for
your support and prayers for those that are volunteering to examine these
signatures and those who are working to take this challenge to court. If these
bullying tactics and intimidation anger you, please donate to help us fight
until we have the necessary number of validated signatures.
We intend to fight to have every valid signature

The tragic case of
Justina Pelletier has suddenly thrust the issue of parental rights into the
national consciousness. But with all the attention, many of you are asking the
same thing we were:
What can we do to help this
(If you aren’t already aware of this horrible case of
government intrusion, read more about it here.)
We have been working to coordinate with
lawmakers and other organizations to have the biggest possible impact for this
family. We are already promoting both a general and a specific parental rights
statute in the Massachusetts legislature. We also support the bipartisan
resolution in the Massachusetts House that urges the Department of Children and
Families (DCF) to return Justina to her parents’ care.
Below are ways
you can help this family in these and other areas, plus ways to
prevent similar cases in the future. Please look over the list carefully. I am
confident there is something here that you can do!
Contact your state lawmakers and urge support for a parental rights statute.
Don’t let the nightmare in Massachusetts come to your state! (To find contact
info, do a web search for “legislature” plus the name of your state.)
Write a letter of encouragement to Justina through our friends
at Liberty Counsel. If DCF won’t let her have them now, Liberty Counsel will
hold them for her until she returns home. Mail to Justina Pelletier c/o
Liberty Counsel, P.O. Box 540774 Orlando, FL 32754
another to her parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier. Liberty Counsel will have no
trouble delivering these right away. Mail c/o Liberty Counsel at the address
4. Call your U.S. congressman and urge him or her to
support HJRes 50, the Parental Rights Amendment. Find their contact
info by clicking your state at parentalrights.org/states.
5. Make the most generous donation you can right now to continue our efforts to
preserve parental rights for the Pelletiers and to prevent more cases
like this in the future.
If you live in Connecticut or
Massachusetts, in addition to the above you can:
1. Call your Massachusetts lawmakers and urge them to support the
resolution of Reps. Lyons and Lombard that demands DCF return Justina
to her parents’ care. OR
Call your Connecticut lawmakers and ask them to pass a
resolution calling for Justina’s return to her home state. Why should
they allow her to be held by Massachusetts without any showing of abuse or
neglect on the part of her Connecticut parents?
2. Contact your
governor and urge him to demand that Justina Pelletier be returned home
immediately. (Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick)
Good news has already
emerged as Justina’s medical care has been transferred back to Tufts
Medical Center, removing Boston Children’s from the medical picture. Working
together, we can see this girl returned to her parents’ care and, hopefully,
returned to health as well. What’s more, we can stop her nightmare from
playing out ever again.
