Support Jules Mermelstein for Judge of the PA Superior Court!
Jules Mermelstein, a PA lawyer since 1980, decided that the best use of his skills to resist the forces attempting to deprive people of their Constitutional and legal rights based on their religion, country of origin, race, sexual orientation or any other irrelevant demographic is to run for an appellate court judgeship as a candidate of the Green Party of Pennsylvania.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR TO VOTE FOR JULES NOVEMBER 7th!
Throughout US history there have been times when forces have tried to deprive people of their rights based on irrelevant demographics. In the late 1700s, the Alien and Sedition Acts targeted those whose national origin was French. In the mid-1800s, the American Party, known as the "Know-Nothings", tried to restrict rights to white male Christians (which in their view did not include Catholics) from western Europe ancestry. The US Supreme Court in 1857 infamously stated that black men had no rights that white men had to recognize. In 1896, the US Supreme Court ruled that "separate but equal" is constitutional. In the 1920s and the 1950s there were "Red scares" with the 1920s accompanied by the Palmer Raids and the 1950s with McCarthyism and the House UnAmerican Affairs Committee. The early 21st Century is beginning with discrimination against those who are Muslim or are from the Middle East and localities who choose to follow the Constitution instead of seizing people when there is no probability they are violating any law.
During such times, any judge worthy of the title "judge" must join the resistance to these unconstitutional actions. Jules would be such a judge.
