One more point about Democrats Limiting the power of the courts to hear citizen complaints

22 July 2006 at 5:54:47 PM

I talked here before about how annoyed I was to see Chet Edwards vote with the Republicans to limit people's ability to take pledge of allegiance issues before federal courts.

Ran across this from the Texas Democratic Party Platform

Access to Justice
Democrats believe our legal system serves as the bedrock that protects and guarantees the rights and freedoms. Democrats believe that instead of taking the law into their own hands, all people must have full access to the courts and equal treatment before the law, with confidence that their grievances will be fairly adjudicated.

·        Open access to the court system guaranteed by the Texas Constitution, the right to fair and impartial jury trials and respect by courts for jury verdicts;,

·        Protection for Texans from unreasonable limitations on access to the justice system, including mandatory arbitration proceedings;

·        Affordable and efficient access to justice for all Texans through the ability to join together to seek redress for personal injuries and property damages;

·        The full protection of due process of law for all Texans in all circumstances;

Is voting to prevent people from taking issues to higher courts and limiting issues to states consistent with the Democratic party platform? I don't think so.

(And P.S. I don't think Edward's flying back to vote with the Republicans about Terry Schiavo was consistent with the Democratic party platform, either.

Texas Democrats believe in the fundamental American values of freedom, privacy and personal responsibility.  Texas Democrats believe in the right to make sound, responsible personal healthcare choices for ourselves and our families. Texas Democrats:

  • Trust the women of Texas to make personal and responsible decisions about when and whether to bear children, in consultation with their family, their physician, and their God, rather than having these personal decisions made by politicians;
