12. He and I have been discussing this on this board
I have made some suggestions as to where he might go with discovery.

In his complaint he brought up the idea that no oaths were required. That got me thinking and I have expanded upon it somewhat and am trying to tweak the emphasis to ultra vires acts and the adbidcation of the government's duties to the private sector.

I believe that the notion of abdication of governmental duties is something that judges will not only buy, but will be alarmed about. Look at it this way, do the judges want to be privatized?

And also targeting the government makes sense tactically. Government lawyers are much more inclined to roll over in a suit of this nature than are lawyers representing the private sector. Governemnt lawyers are on salary and are not paid by the hour. They don't like unnecessary work.

We are seeing more and more privatization of our government daily. Some things can be privatized, but some things should not be abdicated.

Another case in point is the privatization of our prisons. Only the government can put you in jail. Yet now we are seeing prisons run by private companies. I think this is going way too far.
