Justice & Representation


By Scott Stafne, Candidate for Washington Attorney General

The leaders of the Democratic Party do not understand why the people of this nation find them repugnant.

And by “the people,” I include within that term millions of members of the Democratic Party, whose views the people who control that political party refuse to respect in order to maintain their own political power. Indeed, when the Berniecrats sued the party for acting unfair, the Party’s response was “we don’t have to be fair” because we control the Democratic Party.  

This arrogance is not new. Mingled with these party leaders’ contempt of the people in recent times is a historic dishonesty that reveals why those who lead the Democratic Party cannot be trusted. 

It was the Democrat Party that fought for slavery against the Republican Party. 

Even after the Civil War confirmed the will and commitment of this nation’s people to a free republic, it was the Democratic Party that pushed through Jim Crow laws to prevent the will of the people in favor of liberty for all from being carried out.

There are basic principles that most of us as Americans still believe in. And they start with Justice. The fundamental purpose of government is to provide justice for the people. Justice for All. Not just those who can afford it.

The second principle is “representation.” We, the people — not just people with money — need to be adequately represented by those who are accountable to us in a meaningful manner.

The Democrats talk about our “democracy” as if they just discovered we have one

We don’t have a democracy. 

We have a Democratic Republic, in which representatives and senators are supposed to represent their constituents, but more often represent those who fund their elections.  

We are today further away from being a democracy than we ever have been. When this nation began we had one Congressman for every thirty thousand people. Now we have one representative for approximately every 700,000 people. 

Yet Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi deceptively extol the virtues of “our” democracy — A democracy which does not and was never intended to exist. 

The only way democratic virtues can be improved is by ensuring they equate to adequate representation of the people, not simply catering to those with money.
