Like so many folks across Leon County I am ready for a new day in our local government, a day that invests in each and every one of us, not just political insiders and the well-connected.

This week on the Freedom Train Podcast Series, Joe and Pat tackle the controversial topic of the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The U.S. Supreme Court reached the decision to reverse the Roe v. Wade decision, giving the decision to allow abortions to the states, no longer being regulated on a federal level. In addition to the debates over abortion rights, the Supreme court made decisions on 11 other topics that affects our every day lives. Yes, we should give abortion rights our attention, nut not our full attention, to the extent that most of us have no idea what other decisions were made. IS America falling a part in-front of our faces, but we are too blind to see what's happening in our faces? Tune in!!
Supreme Court Decisions:
On May 23rd, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, and declared by Clarence Thomas, that the Federal Courts can no longer review evidence to help overturn convictions where inadequate legal representation was present. This would mean the number of innocent going to prison will increase. Innocent people will suffer at the hands of lame ass representation. This is something that will greatly affect black communities and others who have a history of being failed by the justice system. Tune in!!
