Ah yes, another Republican apppointee fills a seat in the legislature. Is this
democracy at its best or what?
"Weiler sought the open Senate seat in part because he was displeased with
the redistricting process state lawmakers went through last fall." Well,
maybe he's better than the average Republican appointee of late - still there's
no democracy here.
I wish they would stop putting lawyers in positions of representation, we
already have a department of justice, we don't need the justice department it in
two branches of government. That's why there are so many problems in our legal
and justice system, too many lawyers trying to write the laws and forget they
are supposed to representing the people.I think we need to write
laws to ensure the separations of power of government to remain segregated by
making it illegal for a lawyer to run for representative positions of
government. They can't give up their lawyer jobs and it has been devastating our
country's representatives for the people. Lawyers work for the justice
department and I find it a critical conflict of interest for them to be a
representative for any other purpose.The justice system of
government has been too overpowering of citizens rights and lawyers lack the
ability to separate and represent two departments of government so they become
one without any representation of the people.
