Ruwart only running on 3 issues

Susan, the answer to your question is: I think the *criminally accused* have the right to force others to appear in court for questioning if the accused can show that the witnesses are sufficiently material to the case.
My political principles aren't dictated by the Constitution, but feel free to pretend they are if it helps you rationalize not offering arguments against them.  Amusingly, this reminds me of an message of mine that you censored a year ago from reaching the virgin ears on your LPradicals list.
