Getting rid of bad laws and regulations One Jury at a Time
on February 12, 2016
Rand Paul has been one of my favorites every since he came on the scene. This book was kind of like preaching to the choir to me. I have been active in the Tea Party movement since its inception.
Many of the outrages that Rand talks about are known to folks like me. I did learn of a few new ones and of course there are hundreds more out there no doubt.
That we live in this supposedly free country that is supposed to be ruled by laws, voted on by our representatives is becoming more of a joke every day. Every time I think of one of these Jack Booted thugs coming into that Amish farm with "Weapons drawn" I get sick. And I wonder just where they can find these kind of sick people that will work for those agencies. Then I remember that all thuggish governments have had citizens that just sign up for that kind of work. Hitler had no problem filling his ranks of SS with enthusiastic creatons like these FDA and EPA jerks. How these clowns sleep at night is beyond me.
But we all know that this is part and parcel of our Government these days. The folks we send to Washington could give a flip about us poor working folks. Their real job is to buy votes and get re-elected. They just don't have time to fool with writing silly laws. So they just abrogate their responsibility to one of these alphabet agencies and go on with their real jobs, buying votes.
One thing that would really help put an end to these things would be for Americans to get familiar with our Real Jury system and know that they can make a difference "One outrage at a time" simply by saying NOT GULITY.
I won't write a treaties here but understanding that the jury, and particularly the JUROR has a responsibility for not just judging the facts but also to judge the law. Now forget what the judge will tell you about the jury only being able to judge the facts and that HE, LORD ALMIGHTY will tell you what the law is. That judge is lying to you. Ever since the Trial of William Pen (1670) in England and Peter Zenger (1735) in New York, it has been recognized as a most basic RIGHT of the jury or juror to put aside bad law. "The Pages of history shine on the instances of the Jury's exercise of its prerogative to disregard instructions of the judge.." U.S. vs Dougherty, 1972. "The law itself is on trial quite as much as the cause which is to be decided." Harlan F Stone, Chief Justice US Supreme Court, 1941. And I could quote copiously in the same vein. But I hope you get the point.
If you are as outraged as I am over these terrible injustices, start doing some investigation. I found a web site for the "Fully Informed Jury" and learned a whole lot. You might too.
People. We CAN change this. But we need to educate ourselves. The elected representatives are NOT going to do anything. They have no time for this law writing nonsense. They have grand standing and vote buying to do which is much more important to them.
God Bless. JW
