Florida Supreme Court: one of the most activist courts in the nation.
Judicial activism is one of the greatest threats to freedom that exists in our country and state. After being appointed to the bench, judges take an oath to uphold the constitution

When I started this effort to educate voters on the records of Supreme Court Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis, I had one underlying assumption: educating voters so they can make informed decisions on Election Day is a good thing.
That concept is so basic I didn't think anyone could argue with it, as the defenders of the Justices are now doing. So I wrote an op-ed in the Orlando Sentinel to lay out the Justices' r... and why it matters.
We're reaching a point in the campaign when most voters are just beginning to think about Election Day. The vast majority of Floridians have not been following the campaigns closely and will only start their research in remaining weeks before November 6th.
As the merit retention vote draws near, many of your friends and neighbors are going to be asking themselves, "what makes a good judge?" How would you answer them?
My answer is simple: you have to look at their records. The op-ed in the Sentinel makes this point, and lays out their records succinctly and clearly.
This article is designed to help the average voter who is just beginning to think about Election Day.It's a tool that you can use to share with your friends and encourage everyone you know look at the how the decisions made by Pariente, Quince and Lewis have affected health care, property rights, the right to vote, criminal justice, education and frivolous lawsuits.
Please share this op-ed with your friends to help them know how to think about the upcoming vote on the Justices. Also give them this Score Card so they can learn about some of their decisions in more detail.
Also, if you are able, donate $10, $25, $50 or more to help me meet my go.... Think about it--you could help introduce 100,000 people to Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis for the first time.
Can I count on you?

Seriously? We have NO LEGAL RIGHT to challenge Supreme Court Justices.
We are disappointed to learn that a circuit court judge threw out a case and denied two Floridians their right to verify that Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis had properly qualified to be on November's ballot. While opinions vary as to whether the Justices committed a misdemeanor in filing their campaign documents, sweeping the issue under the rug has undoubtedly shaken the public trust in our high court.
The legal community has raised an unprecedented one million dollars to discredit anyone engaging in open dialog about the decisions and actions of Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis. Today Judge Lewis inexplicably told two citizens that they did not have the right to even challenge whether a public official followed the law in filing campaign documents.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time that the law has been skirted in effort to circle the wagons and protect the aspiring Justice's political campaigns:
Battening down the hatches is not the pattern of behavior we expect from transparent government officials with nothing to hide. There is nothing to be lost by allowing the Justices to be vindicated and exonerated from wrongdoing through the public testimony of witnesses in court. Now voters cannot have such assurance that Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis properly qualified for November's ballot.
There is nothing more fundamental to democracy than the voter's confidence in a fair and accurate ballot. And yet the court has a long history of meddling in the democratic process and tampering with this cherished right:
Democracy is at stake in this election, and Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis have repeatedly undermined it by disenfranchising voters and devaluing our ballot. Although the court's pattern of judicial activism makes this turn of events unsurprising, it does nonetheless cast a shadow of doubt over the legitimacy of Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis' candidacies.
