Supreme Court Justice Candidate for the Ron Paul Revolution

A Justice for the Ron Paul Revolution is Michigan candidate Robert W. Roddis.

Robert W. Roddis

I am a lifelong resident of metropolitan Detroit. I have been an attorney since 1980 and a civil litigator for much of that time. I am a strong advocate of the Austrian School of Economics as exemplified by the Nobel Prize winner in economics Friedrich Hayek and by Congressman Ron Paul, who has been an inspiration to me. I believe that individuals have a constitutional and natural right to personal liberty and financial liberty.

1. If I were to own stock in an entity that was a party before the court, I suspect that this would be an appropriate situation for disqualification.

2. The greatest obstacle to justice is the almost universal belief that government has magical healing powers when, in fact, government is the primary cause of our current social and financial collapse. This "Mary Poppins" theory of government encourages judges to override essential liberties and approve government programs that are not only unconstitutional, but which lead inevitably to more crises and more unconstitutional programs. Judges have an essential duty to strike down such unconstitutional laws.

3. My vision for the future is that judges might understand and enforce the written Constitution. For just one example, the Constitution clearly states: "No State shall ...... make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts". If this provision had been properly enforced, there would have been no unconstitutional creation of the Federal Reserve, no Great Depression, no recent housing bubble and no unconstitutional bailout of Fannie, Freddie and AIG.
