  WorldNetDaily: Will of the people ignored again   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
What set America apart from the rest of the world was its commitment to the rule of law and the will of the people.
And the clear expressions of the will of the people are subverted and undermined again and again by the same band of courtroom brown shirts.

 Will of the People
When one considers the will of the people one must factor in the people who will represent the total population, those who are not being represented, and the misinformation they received that distinguishes the decisions they made.
Again, remember that the will of the people is not truly the will of all the people but rather the will of the majority.
As the constitution states, this is a Nation of the people, by the people, and for the people.

 "How Do We Measure The Will Of The People?"--A Commentary by Prof. Jack Balkin
By JACK M. AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS FOUNDED on faith in something called "the will of the people." According to the Declaration of Independence, our leaders have the right to rule only with "the consent of the governed." Politicians are well-trained to begin their remarks with an invocation of the people and their will.
In fact, however, "the will of the people" is a legal and political fiction.
Yet the "will of the people" that politicians are constantly prattling on about does not precede the political process.

 Will of the People
The people lack the Will to object to the modern idea of acceptable standards of conduct that dictates liability, or the avoidance thereof, as the new code of ethics.
The people shrug this off as political necessity, and tender an acceptance by poturing themselves sophisticated and "not surprised", and thereby, not surprisingly in agreement that the status quo is entitled to self serve the public interests ad perpetuum.
Now the people are satisfied with what makes animals content, and they can no longer be called fools, since foolishness is strickly a human condition.

WILL OF THE PEOPLE Will, inventor of rabbits and other mediums of exchange, took to the cause of hunger like a "tick-tight" taco or "at least the whole enchilada." His life was set from birth keeping things green and free from clutter.
For years he'd told the village people what was best for them, still inventing newer and better ways of claiming the obvious as his own.
However, Will was stifled being a "second-in-charge" and thus began a journey, a journey to the top of the hill.

 EDITORIAL: The will of the people (12/05/04)
More and more people flocked to Kyiv to take part in the mass protests there, and more and more actions were organized around the country in support of the opposition.
The people are not going to stand for this and that's why they've been occupying Kyiv for the past 11 days (as of the writing of this editorial).
Agreeing to that scenario would certainly not reflect the will of the people who believe that, finally, they have a say in the future of their beloved country.

 Amazon.com: The Unconquerable World : Power, Nonviolence, and the Will of the People: Books: Jonathan Schell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
His entire book discusses how people can come together, non-violently, to restore both their power over capital and over circumstances, and the social meaning and values that have been abandoned by "objective" corporations and governments.
He notes that over time, "people's war" has been successful more often than it has not, that colonial regimes cannot win against forces which refuse to fight using oppressor's tactics, or use the narrow forms of redress, such as "working through the system," which are offered by those in power under the head of democracy.
The "people's government" was in place and thus Washington's task was to outlast his opponents so that this government could take its rightful place -- a strategy which has been used in successful "people's war" ever since.

Right prevailed, the Judiciary is under close scrutiny and I can again hope and pray that someone will at last see that politics in the court room is not new and we have many prisoners that are in prison for what they believed, not for what they did.
