From the July 2004 Idaho Observer:


“The people's ignorance”

SPOKANE, Wash. -- At a press conference before an event sponsored by the Constitution Party of Washington June 26, Judge Roy Moore stated in three words exactly why Americans are experiencing judicial anarchy.

Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Moore, who has gained a lot of notoriety in recent years for his refusal to remove the Ten Commandments from his courthouse, was at Shadle Park High School with Constitution Party presidential candidate Mike Peroutka. Judge Moore had been explaining how judges' common practice of changing the meaning of words in their courtrooms is legislating from the bench. He described how this flagrant violation of the separation of powers clause in the Constitution has been institutionalized in the courts of the nation and explains how judges are able to justify unjust rulings.

IO editor Don Harkins asked, “What is the power behind all this?”

“The people's ignorance,” said Judge Moore.

The event, featuring Peroutka and Judge Moore, drew almost 600 people, nearly 500 of which event organizers had never seen before.“Honor God, Defend the Family” and “Restore the Republic” describes the Constitution Party Platform.
