In a September 2010 letter to the editor, Joe Campbell said, "If you like war, prison torture, muzzled press, corporations with unlimited funds for their puppet candidates for office, outsourcing of America's jobs, out of the U.S. tax free bank accounts for the rich, the tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans, astronomical war debt due to the Bush/Cheney days, no regulations for the corrupt banks and corporations that have destroyed workers 401K and pension accounts, and our economy, then you must be a conservative. I choose to remain an American."

On Nov. 11 ("Get the occupiers back to work"), Campbell said, "Why haven't the five Supreme Court Justice's been removed from office for turning the country upside down with the corporations being considered persons? ... These five judges must be removed from office for ‘bad behavior,' and this destructive and divisive Roberts (robbers) Court decision must be reversed ... Does the President of the United States have the power to fire the justices, or is it up to the ‘do nothing' House of Representatives and the Senate to act?"

I personally think Campbell is your typical leftist, totally ignorant of the Constitution, particularly the first three articles of the Constitution, which define the often referred to "separation of powers."
