If we understand what is happening is INJUSTICE then we must fight to change things

ASSAULT UPON OUR CIVIL RIGHTS

The United States Constitution is the wellspring of civil rights for American citizens. The Constitution, along with the Bill of Rights, subsequent Amendments, and Supreme Court rulings, define our fundamental freedoms and outline our unique system of law which, in the words of Founding Father John Adams, assures that American democracy remains a “government of laws and not of men.”

The term “civil rights” refers to the fundamental freedoms of the individual. These rights are rooted in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, ratified in 1868:
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States, nor shall any State deprive any persons of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
The original purpose behind the 14th Amendment was to protect the rights of Blacks newly freed from slavery by President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. Lamentably, southern states passed a series of so-called Jim Crow laws during the following decades that promoted racial segregation and discrimination, all under the guise of “separate but equal.” Beginning in 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court began to strike down these laws. 

1 Passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 marked the close of the infamous Jim Crow era.
Once again, Americans’ fundamental liberties are being challenged. This time, the justification emanates from a social mandate to curb intimate partner aggression, commonly referred to as “domestic violence.” This Special Report enumerates and analyzes the far-reaching impacts of domestic violence laws on Americans’ civil rights.
“We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization.” —Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Following are the 12 civil rights that have been undermined by Family and Domestic Violence laws. 


The first five pertain to due process protections for persons accused of intimate partner abuse; the second group applies to other civil rights:

Rights to Due Process  ~
1. Right to be secure in their persons
2. Right to confront one’s accuser
3. Right to a fair trial
4. Issuance of restraining orders
5. Punishment of restraining order violations

Other Civil Rights ~
6. Equal treatment under the law
7. Freedom of speech
8. Right to bear arms
9. Freedom to marry and the right to privacy in family matters
10. Right to parent one’s own children
11. Right to be free from libel and slander
12. Right to be free of undue interference by the government




Right to parent one’s own children, sometimes referred to as the Parental Liberty Doctrine

The First Amendment states:
 “Congress shall make no law… abridging … the right of the people to peaceably assemble.”

The Fourth Amendment states:
Citizens must be "secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects."

The Fourteenth Amendment states:No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property “without due process of law.”


“The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees the right of the individual ... to establish a home and bring up children” (Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390 at 403 (1923))

“It is cardinal with us that the custody, care, and nurture of the child reside first in the parents, whose primary function and freedom include preparation for obligations the State can neither supply nor hinder.” (Prince v. Massachusetts, 321 U.S. 158 at 166 (1944))

Section 102 of the Violence Against Women Act, Grants to Encourage Arrest and Enforce Restraining Orders, provides funds to state level law enforcement, judges, and prosecutors to recommend, issue, and enforce restraining orders. Restraining orders bar couples from associating together, and thus preventing them from marrying or continuing a marriage.

This represents an infringement on citizens’ fundamental right to privacy. 

In all but two states, divorce judges are required to consider allegations or findings of intimate partner violence in the award of child custody.


Each year, about 175,000 children are involved in a divorce with a false allegation of domestic violence.

Assuming 2.0 children per divorce, it is estimated that, annually, 87,500 parents are deprived of their right to parent their children on a routine basis.

“Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day. Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. A most insidious form of fear is that which masquerades as common sense or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless, insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of courage which help to preserve man's self-respect and inherent human dignity. It is not easy for a people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of the principle that might is right to free themselves from the enervating miasma of fear. Yet even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man.”

A lie cannot live.

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.

A man who won't die for something is not fit to live.

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

“Changing a child last name (away from the father’s) is an act of venom”

The time is always right to do what is right.

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
