GEORGE W. ALEXANDER believes:
"Judges must be in the foremront of re-
establishing the credibility of the legal
system. A court must not be used for
political protection of the establishment.
Judges should not protect lawyers from
the justified complaints of the people."

On many issues, Bullard takes
stands similar to those of HRP
in supporting economic reform
based upon graduated income
tax and guaranteed income.
Bullard, who received his law
degree from the University, also
advocates decriminalization and
a redefinition of personal free-
doms: "the government cannot
dictate what individuals do with
|their leisure time, controlled
substances and sexual activity."
