Why MY HOUSE?

One facet of the Indianapolis Tea Party's mission statement is to restore accountable representation.

As many of you know, SB 1 passed on March 20, 2012.  SB 1 is legislation to correct the Barnes vs. State.  That was the Indiana Supreme Court ruling that erased the Castle Doctrine.  The ruling said Hoosiers no longer had the right to defend their home from unlawful entry.  Although SB 1 might not be perfect, the legislation is in the right direction in restoring the Castle Doctrine.

So, why continue MY HOUSE since the passage of SB 1?

The main purposes of the MY HOUSE CAMPAIGN is to notify folks that Judge Steven David who wrote the decision that took away our rights is up for retention.  Because he was recently appointed by Gov. Daniels, he comes before "We the People" to hire or to let him go.  If Hon. David gets the majority votes for retention, he will not be up for retention vote for another 10 years. 

There has been a shift on the Indiana Supreme Court bench.  When the case was reheard in September, the Supreme Court came to the same ruling.  The 2nd time around, however, there was only 1 dissenting judge (in May there were 2 dissenting judges).

In the words of James Madison, "then as the last resort a remedy must be obtained from the people who can, by the election of more faithful representatives, annul the acts of the usurpers."   Publius (James Madison), Federalist Paper No. 44 

In a Republic form of government, VOTING is #1.  This is how we the people decide if a representative, judge, etc has been faithful to their Oath....or if we need to find someone else that will be more faithful.  

The Indiana Supreme Court made a ruling, 2 times, with the same result ~ Our freedoms being stripped away. 

'We the People' can right the wrong ruling by electing a more faithful representative....in this case, by VOTING NO to retain Justice Steven David.  Also, something very important to note.....what if we didn't have the legislators that would have righted the wrong ruling?  Then, where would be?  What if in the future Justice Steven David would make another ruling that goes against 'We the People' and we don't have legislators that step up to the plate and do the right thing?  'We the People' wouldn't have another chance to annul the acts of the usurpers until the next retention vote.
