Message from Recall Bobby Jindal Website

Recall Bobby Jindal

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.”
Thomas Jefferson

Even though this endeavor was all too short, our goal has been met, and with that we wish to withdraw our recall effort, and we have decided against distributing our petition. Our stance against this form of tyranny was to display solidarity with the promise we were given first. Our government has to be reminded from time to time they have to answer to the people, not to themselves.
We wish to thank the supporters of the site, and your willingness to carry this forward. Everyone learns from mistakes, and Governor Jindal admits his position was a mistake. We should allow him the opportunity to redeem himself and we encourage you to get behind and support him.
With that being said there is still the matter of dealing with the legislators who voted for and were most instrumental in this ridiculous salary fiasco to begin with. Remember who voted for and against this bill. It is now left up to you, the people, in your own districts to hold accountable those who say they represent you. Don’t stop the pressure of the recalls in your districts, and start the recalls that haven’t yet been filed. We held those that tried to wrong us and the state to the highest standard, we deserved no less, and now we must make them understand we mean business.
Last but not least a message to you, the legislators, let it be known today and from now on we are watching you and your days of holding a public office will end with a new term limit by recall when you try to wrong the citizens of this state. We would encourage you to work with the Governor on reform! We refuse to continue to sit idly by and let you do as you wish. There is a new time in Louisiana, it is called ‘Reform’ and it is here to stay.
