Cleanup[edit]

I've done a massive amount of cleanup to this article, which was apparently copied over from w:Jerry Brown without any attempt to fix links or Wikiquote-ify the material, but it still needs a lot of work. (Inept transfers are why we have a formal Transwiki process, so that one project's editors don't get excessive work dumped directly into their articlespace by other projects' editors.) Many of the quotes cite the "We the People Radio Network" as sources, but that organization's website doesn't seem to include any of the archives cited. The few quotes I did find sources for are probably not wiki-reliable, so they need replacement sources. Everything else has incomplete or vague "sources" cited. Once all these major problems are fixed, it could use some more copyediting, too. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 18:16, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Bias[edit]

After reading this article it seems fairly obvious that it's negatively biased. There is not a single quote in the "Quotes About" section which is positive. I don't really have any good knowledge of how to flag articles, but this page needs to be marked for what I think is called here NPOV. -Thomas
