Special Message to the Arizona Legislature

Dear Members of the Arizona Legislature,

We’ve been noticing that you don’t seem to remember the Oath you swore to when we elected you.

You know the one:

 

You may have forgotten that one very important portion of the Arizona Constitution you swore to defend is Article 2 Section 5. Here’s what it says:

Section 5. The right of petition, and of the people peaceably to assemble for the common good, shall never be abridged.”

From everything we can see, you folks are “abridging” like mad!

Cut it out.

Your job is not to make voting or petitioning more difficult but to facilitate every CITIZEN’s participation in democracy.

Even if you think they’ll vote against you or circulate a petition proposing a new law or constitutional amendment you don’t like.

You have a problem with certain CITIZENS? Tough.

Start adhering to your oath, get out or be voted out.

Your choice.
