The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Some Thoughts:

Wisconsin

Treason.  SECTION 10. Treason against the state shall consist

only in levying war against the same, or in adhering to its

enemies, giving them aid and comfort.  No person shall be convicted

of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the

same overt act, or on confession in open court.

 

Maintenance of free government. SECTION 22.  The

blessings of a free government can only be maintained by a firm

adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality and virtue,

and by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.

 

Qualifications of legislators.  SECTION 6.  No person shall

be eligible to the legislature who shall not have resided one year

within the state, and be a qualified elector in the district which

he may be chosen to represent.

 

A candidate for election to Congress need not be a resident of the district at the

time he or she files nomination papers and executes the declaration of intent to

accept the office if elected.  A candidate for congress must be an inhabitant of the

state at the time of election.  61 Atty. Gen. 155.

 

Organization of legislature; quorum; compulsory

attendance. SECTION 7.  Each house shall be the judge of the

elections, returns and qualifications of its own members; and a

majority of each shall constitute a quorum to do business, but a

smaller number may adjourn from day to day, and may compel

the attendance of absent members in such manner and under

such penalties as each house may provide.

 

Rules; contempts; expulsion.  SECTION 8.  Each house

may determine the rules of its own proceedings, punish for contempt

and disorderly behavior, and with the concurrence of two-

thirds of all the members elected, expel a member; but no member

shall be expelled a second time for the same cause.

 

Courts have no jurisdiction to review legislative rules of proceeding, which are

those rules having “to do with the process the legislature uses to propose or pass

legislation or how it determines the qualifications of its members.”  Milwaukee

Journal Sentinel v. DOA, 2009 WI 79, 319 Wis. 2d 439, 768 N.W.2d 700, 07-1160.

The legislature cannot sentence a person to confinement for contempt without

notice and without giving an opportunity to respond to the charge. Groppi v. Leslie,

404 U.S. 496.
