As a juror, you are NOT simply duty-bound to agree with the state’s judge; you are duty bound to be on the guard for justice as well as the sanctity of individual rights.
There is TALK, or more like window dressing in my opinion, in regards to there being true and unquestionable “consent of the governed.” “Our” government represents us, or at least is said to do so. However, are there not times when this is mere theory as opposed to reality?
Consent is necessary since “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice.” That is, of course, part to the preamble to the US constitution.
Indisputably, to those that are not lying, the individual, all individuals, establish Justice and that which follows, interpret, attest to, and assure it, when needed.
I do not dispute and, in fact, suggest that all too often and to too far a degree, Americans do not meaningfully withdraw their consent. However, there is the perpetuation of certain myths, one namely being that The People may only assure Justice with a vote during an election; that there are no more personal and direct safeguards.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
This myth needs to be absolutely demolished! How can there be consent, truly, when bodies of so-called law that people generally find repulsive [or are not even aware of–but, of course, many operate under, and government and its courts pedal, the notion that “ignorance of the law is no excuse.”] are not and cannot be rid of due to the usual lies and unwillingness of government agency to not promulgate, to refuse to purge, to refuse to enforce?
Individual liberties are clearly under attack; is one to actually believe that this is entirely consensual?
The US national government especially is not responsive to the will of those that it is supposed to service responsibly in theory; it is instead materially unresponsive and assertive of its very own nature and of those that most grow and expand its power and jurisdiction over individual lives for their own goals.
When government simply refuses to help to secure true Justice and instead operates as benefactor to one set of mean interests over others, there must be one final say by those that grant or retract consent.
This can be found in the court room by the humble yet powerful individual juror.
