What Kind of Political Person are You???
Every person has political opinions, even if you don't like to think about politics...they are still an integral part of your life!
So...ask yourself and tell us, what kind of person are you?
Are you a person who believes that the people should control government?
Or are you a person who believes that the government should control people?
Little known fact about how we the people have the power to make decisions and change our laws in the USA. Like judges, a jury can decide if a law is wrong.
We as jurors have the power to decide both on the facts of a case and on the law itself which the case is built on.
Judges very, very rarely inform juries of their power of nullification. I sat in a jury once, I know neither the judges nor the lawyers said anything about our choice to nullify!
In fact, judges will tell the jurors that it is their duty to apply the law as given, whether or not they believe it is right. Judges often will prohibit lawyers to inform the jurors of their right to nullify.
Why does the justice system want the common voting citizen to be ignorant of our rights and powers?!
If you are on a jury, and you believe that the defendent was unjustly charged with breaking a law, or if the law itself is wrong for America...you have the power to let our government know it!
Excellent example of jury nullification being put to good use.
In 2011 the Dollarhite family whas threatened with up to $4 MILLION dollars in fines by the USDA (the investigating office being led by a known PETA animal rights supporter) because their 4H son was raising and selling pet bunnies. The Dollarhite family did not make a living from this, this was just a small business that they did with their son to teach him about farming and finances. The USDA charged the Dollarhites with a NON-EXISTANT LAW, their farm was NOT USDA licensed and they were NOT required in any way to have a USDA license, yet the USDA still threatened them with fines and to take away their animals because they wanted to "make an example of you."
The USDA and the Dollarhites went to court, their case was heard by a jury, the jury decided to use jury nullification and the Dollarhites won their case.
IF you have animals, any kind of animal, you better believe that the USDA is not above wanting to punish you just for possessing an animal, many animal-rights activists have infiltrated this part of government and their best targets are small family farms who do not have the funds to fight for for their rights. Thankfully the Dollarhites received many donations so they could win their fight.
Protect our small farms, protect your American rights.
