Leave it to Florida "slawmakers" to find a way to spit on the Constitution, the First Amendment of which "limits the right to petition the government for redress of grievances," and the Florida Constitution, which guarantees all citizens the "right to access the courts without sale, denial, or delay." However, in 2004, Florida "slawmakers" passed unconstitutional legislation charging court fees to the indigent, the only state in the union to do so, denying millions of citizens their day in court--their basic Constitutional right to have their grievances redressed in a court of law, and the issue isn't even on the table anymore--much less is there anyone doing anything actually effective to change it.

The legislation was not passed merely to collect court fees for the State of Florida--oh no, it was designed to prevent citizens from holding accountable in courts of law, corporations, government entities, and politicians, to name a few, for everything from gross negligence and incompetence, to flagrant abuses of power and overt statutory violations.

I am circulating a petition:

insisting on a Constitutional Amendment to prevent any state from ever again passing unconstitutional legislation. The right to have one's grievances addressed in courts of law is as crucial to our freedoms as is free speech, freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms.

Please sign and support this petition.
